Traditionally, Hung Fa Yi Wing Chun Kuen was taught primarily to family members and/or indoor disciples. Until instruction of Garrett Gee by Dr. Ming Wang, Hung Fa Yi was never taught outside the family. In order to preserve his art and to honor his Kung Fu lineage, Sifu Gee has decided to pass on his knowledge to students who have demonstrated sincere interest in this Wing Chun style. He is currently the 8th Generation successor of Hung Fa Yi Wing Chun. His decision to open the system represents the first time in its 330 year history that Hung Fa Yi Wing Chun Kuen has been taught outside China or to the public.
At the age of 5, grandmaster Gee started his martial arts training under the tutelage of his father. While attaining mastery of the various styles in his Kung Fu family lineage, Grandmaster Garrett Gee demonstrated an affinity and flair for swordsmanship and is considered an expert swordsman. He and his brothers are the inheritors of Grandmaster Peter Kim Ho Chu’s accumulated knowledge. Consequently, Grandmaster Gee is an accomplished practitioner and instructor of traditional Kung Fu weapons styles. At the age of 13, Grandmaster Gee impressed Dr. Wang Ming as they became acquainted while training daily in a park. Sifu Gee became the last of Dr. Wang’s four disciples who received full training in Hung Fa Yi Wing Chun Kuen. Grandmaster Gee has been teaching since his move to the United States in 1975 at the age of 18. In 2001 he was voted “Martial Artist of the Year” by Action Magazine. Grandmaster Gee, on October 2003, authored one of the best selling martial arts books “Mastering Kung Fu: Shaolin Wing Chun”. With the success of his first book and after many requests Grandmaster Gee is considering writing a second Hung Fa Yi Wing Chun book which will introduce more information to the public.
