I started Wing Chun with Meridian Kung Fu (UK) under the expert tuition of SIfu Sata Chand in 2006 at the age of 9, and I have had a passion for it since day one. Meridian has helped me develop so many great qualities and attributes, its life changing. I knew Meridian was the place for me to improve myself, learning important qualities such as confidence, life skills, focus levels, fitness levels.

3 years into training Wing Chun I joined the elite programme to improve my progress and knowledge of Wing Chun, which involves using the Butterfly swords and the wooden pole. I was then given the opportunity to start as an assistant coach at the club and I took the opportunity with no hesitation. Through dedicated training and coaching I started to learn all the skills I needed to teach all ages. Since then I progressed my way to up Apprentice instructor, completing my Level 2 Activity leadership and Level 3 leisure management NVQ qualifications.

I’m now a full time Wing Chun instructor. I run classes at Southend HQ and I also assist at other branches. And now running my own branch in South Woodham Ferrers. I thrive on passing the knowledge of what I’ve learnt from Meridian, to students all ages as it great to see them benefit from doing Wing Chun and seeing how much it improves their lives.
