What is WingTchunDo?
is the martial art system formulated from the training and fight experience of Sifu Fernandez. This is based on the WingTsun
system, created by Grandmaster Ip Man's penultimate private student, GM Leung Ting, as well as the teachings of Ip Man's third disciple, GM Chu Shing Tin.
Sifu Fernandez began his martial arts training in 1972 under the direct Yip Man Lineage of GM Tsui Shun Tin in Australia. He trained with great passion and dedication under the late Sifu Jim Fung from 1973 till the early 1990's. He had the opportunity to see other lineages such as Master Wong Shun Leung, William Cheung. In 1992 he started the the GM Leung Ting Lineage under Sifu Stefan Fischer and became his personal student for 7 years. He moved back to Europe and then became personal student of Sifu Cuciuffo, Grandmaster Keith Kernspecht and then finally moved on to becoming GM Leung Ting's private student in which he moved back and forth to Hong Kong for about 3 years...
