[Greg Yau]... Though GM Yauís training was in the martial arts his natural temperament led him to question the value of studying violence as a means of solving problems, and he came to realize that healing and helping others heal themselves were areas that he was more interested in, so he spent eight years working in an acupuncture clinic as an apprentice for Dr. John S. Yee PhdD. LAC, from 1985 to 1992, learning Acupuncture, Herbs, and Chi Gung. From 1995 to 2002, GM Yau studied under Wing Pon, learning Quantum Physics and helped co-created the Holon Method. He continued his Quantum and Theoretical Physics knowledge with Bill Gough of the Foundation for Mind Being Research from 2000 to present. GM Yau is a former President and Board Member of the Foundation for Mind Being Research and Executive Director of the Shaolin School of Health and Self Defense in San Francisco, where he teaches a unique blend of Wing Chun strengthened by his Acupuncture, Chi Gung and Quantum Physics learnings. Today his focus is upon the underlying spiritual basis and healing potentials of the ancient arts. His top students include Sifus Eddie Katzman, Tim Lee (Lee Wing-dot), Ryan Santiago, Gao Fu & Josh.

[Tim Lee]... Lee became a sifu under Sifu "Barber" Bill. More recently he has trained under Hernanís instructors, Grandmasters (GM) Stanley Chan (Chan Kam-Ming), a private student of the late Ip Man and GM Greg Yau, the nephew of Chan. From GM Chan he has learned the secrets of the classical & Pin Sun WC styles and from GM Yau the way to develop holistic internal power. Sifu Lee co-authored the book "Amazing Secrets of the Holistic Athlete", which is about ways to develop internal power and develop the holistic athlete with GM Yau. Lee now teaches Wing Chun & the Yau system of the Holistic Body Shaping privately, when he is not busy pursuing other interests or working on his next book.
