China Trip - November 2015

 

In November of 2015, the Jee Shin Wing Chun Association, under the guidance of Sifu Garry and Sifu Linda, enjoyed a fantastic trip to Singapore, then on to Taipei where we visited and trained with the students on the roof top  kwoon of Ip Man's nephew Grandmaster Lo Man Kam.

We also visited the Southern Shaolin Monastery in Fujian Province where the Head Abbot made us extraordinarily welcome.

We then proceeded to the magnificent commercial centre of Shanghai, then took the 300km/hr fast train to Beijing where we visited the Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City and the Summer Palace. An amazing trip in exploring the roots of Wing Chun.
