Guro Richard Lamoureaux & Sifu Jack Soderberg with GM Wai Lun Choi

The two day seminar held for Grand Master Wai Lun Choi was an exciting experience for all that attended. Students from as far away as Canada stop in to see the Grand Master work his craft. GM Choi is the linage holder to the rare Kung Fu System of Lui Ho Pa Fa. I was introduced to Sifu Choi back in 1980 by Sifu Jack Soderberg at the Peak Congress Hotel in Chicago. All I can say is Master Choi can deliver the goods at his ripe young age of 72. His seminar covered many aspects of the martial arts from movement, postion and breathing to applacation and philosophy. It was nice to see him again for it’s been 25 years for me. The last time I saw Sifu he bounced me 8 feet through the air.

Wai Lun Choi will be conducting another seminar for the United Martial Arts Academy in Miami Florida. For more information go to or contact Sifu Henry at (786) 357-4255.

Wai Lun Choi Seminar Las Vegas

Grand Master of the  Liu Ho Pa Fa system of Kung-Fu, Wai Lun Choi will be in Las Vagas on the 6th and 7th of Aug. The seminar will be hosted by Sifu  Dan Tafoya and will be held at the Gardens Park in Summerlin. Contact Dan at (702) 592-6949 for all the details regarding the seminar. I had the privilege of meeting Master Choi back in 1980 at the Peak Congress hotel in Chicago, during a demonstration of his martial art of Liu Ho Pa Fa. At the time I was a  student under sifu Jack Soderberg and it was he who invited me to meet his Master. Wai Lun Choi is by far an expert in Kung Fu.

In the early 80’s Dan Inosanto trained with Master Choi as a private student. One day I ask Guro Dan what he thought of Master Choi and his Kung Fu. Dan said to me ” Rich I rate him in the top 5″ So I said, Dan, that is a nice complement for top 5 in the U.S.A. Inosanto look at me and said, “no Rich, he is in the top 5 in the world”.

In 1971, Wai Lun Choi, as part of the Hong Kong delegation, participated in the Southeast Asian Hand-to-Hand Martial Arts Tournament. This was the premier martial tournament lasting eight days. On the fourth day of competition, Wai Lun would go up against the reining champion, Wong Chai Leung, nickname “Crazy Horse”. A reporter for the Singapore News described the intensity of the fight. “Choi’s strikes were resounding over the audience making each move a potential lethal end to this competition”
