There were many threads on such a topic, however, many didn't satisfy my curiosity. I have been searching for respectable sifu (who don't just teach for money) within the london area. I have found that Alan Orr, Leo au Yeung, Desmond Spencer and Austin Goh are popular and commonly suggested but I haven't found a comparison between the different sifu's. Since this is my first martial art I will probably study, I don't know what really makes up a good MA teacher. I would be grateful to know people's opinion's on these teachers (first hand experience or not), comparisons between the instructors, how they teach, what you think is the most effective, reasonable pricing for lessons (how much they charge) and similar questions. Thank you to anyone who responds in advance. I am very grateful to be part of this wonderful community
I agree with everybody on this thread go and try these sifus out , then you ' ll know what sifu you really like . Experience has to start from somewhere it ' s not an overnight thing . Because , you have to get to know your sifu , and as times really goes by for you , you know who you really want to train with in wing chun .
Take your time , and be patient , mainly because you ' re the one whose going to get the experience .
