3. Master of the System (As taught by teacher (Full Sifu))
I qualified as instructor with all Sifus. I am no longer a member of any of my Sifus. Ji has passed away and I was his first qualified instructor. Ip Chun taught me the whole style but was upset when I started to also train with Sifu Wan Kam Leung. I now have a different relationship with Sifu Wan.
Sifu Allan has been involved in martial arts since the age of 13 (1967), training in Judo, Jiu Jitsu and Mauy Thai at boarding College in Adelaide. In January 1972, he commenced training in the Wing Chun style under Sifu Jim Fung. In 1976 Sifu Allan left Adelaide and moved to Canberra to open a new Branch for Sifu Jim Fung. He returned to Adelaide some 12 months later where he continued to instruct within the Adelaide branches.
He relocated back to Canberra in 1980 and opened his own Wing Chun Academy.
Sifu Allan continued to broaden his Wing Chun knowledge and experience by studying extensively with other senior Wing Chun practitioners. Some have conducted seminars for the Canberra Wing Chun Academy, including Sifu Felix Leong and Sifu Ip Chun who both attended the Canberra seminar in 1988. Sifu Ip Chun returned to Australia in 1996 and attended both Canberra and the Brisbane branches running seminars over a week long period. Sifu Allan continued training with Sifu Ip Chun until 1999.
In 1994 he started private training in Hong Kong with both Sifu Ip Chun and Sifu Wan Kam Leung (this involved extensive training usually over a 5 week period).
Sifu Allan was considered Sifu Wan`s number 60th student. He continued to train with Sifu Wan until 2008, and now enjoys an alternative relationship with him.
Sifu Allan conducts classes seven days a week, including two lunch-time classes at the Phillip Headquarters plus has a class at both of the universities in Canberra.
