My name is Simon Lau. I was born in China and from a young age educated by Buddhist monks. I truly believe that the minds that co-ordinate the activities of violence can co-ordinate the activities of co-operation. Every one has an equal right to eliminate suffering and seeking for happiness.
To understand this potential I trained in martial arts and Qigong. The discipline training became an invaluable tool to teach me how I could overcome my fear of violence and allow myself to perform every day life in a more spontaneous and constructive way.
I was selected to appear in BBC martial arts documentary “The Way of Warrior” , Gold Crest Film for channel 4 , “The Living Body” to represent muscle power and speed. Sky one of reality TV show “Fight School” and for Discovery Channels documentary, “The Greatest Ever Weapon”. In Sept. 2000 I was honoured to become a guest speaker at the Cambridge University Union In keeping with the Warrior tradition I have focused my life as much on being a healer as being a martial artist. I am a sincere practitioner of Qigong, Chinese Herbal Medicine and Chinese Astrology, believing that physical and emotional health are essential for self development and inner awareness. Everyone has the potential to improve and change because each new day represents a new life. Every hour of our time is a gift.
In the last weekend you taught me well, inspired me in a fantastic way, made me understand more about Wing Chun and you reached out to my heart once again…
I wish we could have such inspiring seminars more often and on a regular basis, as it is not only about learning how to place Bong / Tan Sau, but to understand why and get a chance to develop oneself on another level really.
“The atmosphere of your classes is just super – and when I left last night, it became even more apparent to me just how special the experience I’ve had under your teaching has been (and I’m sure as the weeks go by, I’ll realise it even more!) It’s almost a case of not quite understanding what you have, until you move on to the next chapter in your life.”
