Master William Kwok was invited to be a guest speaker at Harvard University on Tuesday alongside Ms. Xiaoyi Chen, Wushu gold medalist, to share his thoughts on and knowledge of Chinese martial arts, particularly Wing Chun. The discussion was held from an academic standpoint and centered on the topic of traditional Chinese martial arts and their relevance to modern society. It was a memorable event and an honor!


Thank you so much for your words of encouragement, Grandmaster Suk Jun Kim!
