Sifu Colin Ward
Sifu Ward began his Martial Arts training in the 1970’s, and began studying Ip Chun lineage Wing Chun around 1985. It was in 1989 when (already a Wing Chun teacher at that time) Colin was invited to train Wing Chun Kung Fu in Hong Kong under the direct personal tuition and guidance of Grandmaster Ip Chun himself.
Sifu Colin Ward is one of only a handful of Grandmaster Ip Chun’s representatives worldwide, and had been teaching Wing Chun for over 25 years
Master Colin Ward is also Chief Instructor of the Northern Wing Chun Kung Fu Association purewingchun.co.uk, which was established in Feb 1991 on the sole request of Grandmaster Ip Chun (Yip Chun), who wished for his senior student (Sifu Ward) to teach and promote original and pure Wing Chun in the United Kingdom.
Since 1991 the association has flourished, with the first UK school still running today. Having had over 10,000 classes since it’s opening, the UK school alone has helped students and Instructors develop through schools not only across the UK but also in Europe, Canada and Asia.
