Amazingly agile performance by 91 year old grandmaster Wong Gong, one of the last remaining Choy Lee Fut masters of his generation. Watch as he dashes and turns in his Choy Lee Fut fan form.

This group of testers have been training at Golden Lion since they were young. They have all grown up to be such fine, strong young men. Their futures are bright as the training they have gone through over the years, both physically and mentally, has paved the way for them. They will be great ambassadors and we are all so proud!

Congratulations testers to a job well done! Keep up the powerful practice!
