It has been quite some time since my last posting on AnD. Due to work and other commitments, and various happenings in my life, I have neglected my page for quite a while and indeed will require an update soon....
However, my latest posting is unfortunately to share the sad news of the recent passing of the great legendary Sifu Paul Chan.
Grandmaster Paul Chan, who is listed in
Canadian Black Belt Hall of Fameand also is recognised as the
"Father of Canadian Kung Fu", founded his martial arts school, Hong Luck Kung Fu Club back in 1961. It is the first and longest serving Kung Fu club in Toronto. It is also the home that served as my induction to traditional Chinese Kung Fu during
my year adventure in Toronto in 2009.
During my brief few months at Hong Luck Kung Fu Club, I had the most rare honour and privilege to train under the guidance and tutelage of Sifu Chan along side many of the school's senior instructors. He was a kind, lively and energetic man for his age, and his passion for Kung Fu and perfection in the art can always be emitted through him.
I am sadden by the departure of such a wonderful influential person and great Sifu, and it is a huge lost to the Chinese Kung Fu community in Canada and around the world. My deepest thoughts and condolences goes out to his family, and may his spirit and teachings lives on through his students - my many wonderful Sifus, Kung Fu brothers and sisters of Hong Luck Kung Fu Club.
