Sifu Benjamins originally learned Wing Chun from Lothar Hirneise & Klaus Pertl, who are most famous for writing a German Wing Chun book in the 80's that first compared the different lineages (mainly what was seen in Europe at that time compared to China). Hirneise retired after a few years and Sifu Benjamins eventually sought out other teachers to train under.
