Real honor & privilege to spend a little time with SiFu Chris Damiano yesterday at West County Wing Chun. Arguably one of this country's best Wing Chun exponents (Ip Ching lineage). If you haven't trained with him yet I'd recommend it highly. You will not be disappointed! He can be found in Destin, Florida at Centerline Martial Arts.
