Si-Fu Tom (道睿, Dao Yui) is a 6th generation disciple of Grand Master Ng Siu Chung and has been practicing Kung Fu for over 36 years and leading his own group since 2005.

Our primary style is Tibetan White Crane (Pak Hok Pai) which we practice together with Lee Gar (Frank Lee's Kung Fu), Hung Gar and few other sets from the Sil-Lum styles.  These additional styles complement our Tibetan White Crane style and teach the student other aspects of traditional Chinese martial arts.
