“WE DON’T WANT to CONVERT PEOPLE to OUR WING CHUN.
All we want is to MAKE this tradition ACCESIBLE to EVERYONE in EUROPE.”
Wilhelm Blech was born in 1952. Since the age of 16, he decided to challenge himself with different forms of fighting disciplines such as Boxing(), Tang Shou Dau, Tang Lang, and Tae Kwon Do and it’s unquestionable that his immense curiosity, headstrong ambition and physical propensity to training drove his passion further and further. However, there is only 1 milestone that truly defined the future and purpose of Wilhelm Blech’s life: the meeting with his, soon to be Sifu, Master Lok Yiu. Always in search of perfection and of answers that could placate his desire to look for the truth in Wing Chun kung fu, in 1992, he decided to go to Hong Kong, taking with him 3 of his oldest students. The journey was expensive and uncertain since neither Wilhelm Blech nor his pupils had any idea if and how such a prominent representative of the Chinese Wing Chun tradition, the oldest alive direct disciple of the Great Master Yip Man, would ever even consider the idea of offering up his time to some foreign strangers. Yet, Wilhelm Blech’s obstinate determination was absolute.
