Chief Instructor's Bio: Eugene Heung Lap Chi

 

This is my pleasure and honor to be appointed as Chief Instructor of Wu’s Tai Chi Chuan Academy Headquarters in Hong Kong and awarded a Certificate of Certified Instructor by my Sifu, Grand Master Eddie Wu Kwong Yu.

17 years ago, I was admitted as the first disciple by Grand Master Wu in his first disciple class in Hong Kong. From a newcomer to a Chief Instructor, I always appreciate Sifu’s patience and selfless teaching and pass on his professional forms of Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan and the top level of internal martial art that has transformed me into who I am today.

This appointment is beyond an endorsement by Grand Master Wu, but also a reminder on striving for higher excellence. This is best concluded by his saying: “Practicing internal martial art is an endless, lifelong learning.” Sifu is our benchmark. I am dedicated to working even harder in future, and passing the knowledge to coming generations of enthusiasts.

 

十分高興及榮幸得到掌門吳光宇師父,委任本人為鑑泉總社 (香港) 總教練,並頒發證明書。

17年前,我拜在掌門師父門下,作為弟子,成為香港第一屆第一位徒弟,我從一張太極拳白紙,到今天成為總教練,很感謝師父多年來對我的耐性,無私的教導,傳授吳家真傳的太極拳內家功夫。

雖然師父委任我為總教練,但我很清楚,我仍有很多不足之處,師父不時提點我,內家功夫是一條漫長的路,一世的功夫,以後我會加倍努力學習,亦以師父為本,積極傳承給有心人。

 

 

Grand Master Eddie Wu Kwong Yu Bio

 

In 1937, Grand Master Wu Chien Chuan and his eldest son Grand Master Wu Kung Yi brought Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan into Hong Kong and established the Wu’s Tai Chi Chuan Academy, Hong Kong (HK Academy), which was located at Hennessy Road on the Hong Kong Island. Grand Master Wu Kung Yi succeeded as the third generation master in 1942 subsequent to the passing away of his father Grand Master Wu Chien Chuan.

 

To meet the rapidly increasing demand for Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan training Grand Master Wu Tai Kwei (first son of Grand Master Wu Kung Yi) established a branch of the HK Academy in Kowloon. Very soon it was found that the two centers were not adequate for accommodating the increasing number of students and a major restructuring of the training venues was called for. Two spacious units at Flats A & B on 14/F of 37 U Jordan Road, Kowloon, were then purchased in May 1956 and served as the headquarters of the HK Academy.

 

Grand Master Wu Kung Yi passed away in 1970 and his eldest son Grand Master Wu Tai Kwei succeeded as the fourth generation master and Chairman of the HK Academy in the same year. In the following years Grand Master Wu Tai Chi, Grand Master Wu Yan Hsia and Grand Master Wu Tai Sin chaired the HK Academy consecutively until 2005 when the 5th generation Master Eddie Wu Kwong Yu succeeded the chairmanship of the HK Academy and became Gatekeeper of the Wu Style of Tai Chi Chuan.

 

Grand Master Eddie Wu Kwong Yu is a highly respected international martial artist who has been vigorously promoting Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan to North America and Europe since 1972. Today there are official overseas branches of the Academy in Canada (Toronto, Fredericton, Vancouver),  United States (Ann Arbor, New Jersey, Washington),  England (London), Greece and Wales. To further promote the internationalization of Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan, Grand Master Eddie Wu founded the “International Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan Federation” (www.wustyle.com) in Toronto, Canada in 1995. Under his leadership we shall continue to promote Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan, both regionally and internationally.
