Sifu Sergio was a major Bruce Lee fan and he studied and read everything concerning him. As Bruce Lee began his hand to hand fighting excursion with Wing Chun so for Sifu Sergio that would likewise be the way. To dig further he spoke with a portion of Bruce’s initial understudies like James de Mile and Jesse Glover to discover more about the individual Martial Arts advancement of his object of worship. He likewise visited a lot more military craftsmanship schools as conceivable in Amsterdam along with companions to watch or partake in exercises.

In 1987 Sifu Sergio prepared the Wing Chun framework under Sifu R.

Approximatly two months into his training, he got a hold of a book “Wing Tsun Kuen” written by Grandmaster Leung Ting (the last closed door disciple of the late Grandmaster Ip Man). The book motivated Sifu Sergio such a lot of that he settled on the choice to stop his preparation at Sifu Wang Kiu’s school after just four months into his preparation and to begin searching for a Leung Ting subsidiary school, that year Sifu Sergio began preparing the Leung Ting Wing Tsun System under Frank Schäfer, just for it to stop after an awful auto crash. Around nine months after the fact he had the option to continue his preparation and got his first Technician level from Sifu Keith Kernspecht who was the main teacher of the EWTO in 1994 Germany.

This was difficult yet Sifu Sergio figured out how to set up an effective school for around a year prior to choosing to leave the nation because of political pressure.

Sifu Sergio continued considering one day turning into an individual understudy of Sifu Leung Ting and because of his persistance he ultimately accomplished that during an outing to Asia in similar period with his fantasy working out when he met Grandmaster Leung Ting in Hong Kong. Having seen and gotten directions from him before just during Sifu Leung Ting’s European workshop visits, unfortunately because of positive conditions Sifu Sergio was sufficiently blessed to be acknowledged as a private understudy by Grandmaster Leung Ting and game plans were made to begin the private preparing under Sifu Leung Ting as quickly as time permits.

Subsequent to getting back to Europe to make game plans to remain longer in Hong Kong Sifu Sergio concluded that prior to returning he would complete constantly the unarmed Leung Ting Wing Tsun framework under Sifu Slavko Truntic who was one of the expert understudies of Sifu Leung Ting.

Being brimming with enthusiasm for Wing Chun, Chinese Kung Fu history and Philosophy it was not long in the wake of setting up every one of these schools that Sifu Sergio began to understand that the Ip Man Wing Chun heredity and the genealogies got from it were not by any means the only ancestries around in China. It was stunning from the outset and he required some an ideal opportunity to acknowledge that there were more seasoned and more complete heredities out there which at the time were all practically obscure in Europe. Numerous individuals don’t understand that the Ip Man framework is really an individual translation and blend of three distinctive Wing Chun heredities to be specific Chan Wha Sun, Yuen Kay san and Dai Dak Lan.
