Founded in 2001, Tucson Hung Gar Wing Chun Club is an official branch of the International Chiu Chi Ling Hung Gar Kung Fu Association and tThe World Ho Kam Ming Wing Chun General Association. The organization specializes in Shaolin Hung Gar Kung Fu, Wing Chun and Traditional southern Chinese lion dance. Our goal is to offer cultural preservation of these arts through private instruction, educational presentations, and performances for auspicious events. Just like our current members, we are an open group that welcomes students from all backgrounds.
We strive to provide opportunities that encourages team work, confidence, knowledge, friendship, and respect. We also provide the opportunity to participate in cultural performances in our community and surrounding areas. This allows us to continually educate our volunteers and students as we share our knowledge to educate the community and open its eyes to what hundreds of years of tradition has to offer.
Our leader, Sifu Robert Lopez, became a direct disciple and a certified instructor under Shaolin Hung Gar Grand master Chiu Chi Ling over 20 years ago and has practiced Wing Chun as taught to him by Sifu Augustine Fong for over 35 years. He is also a certified Shaolin Master and studied the Chinese Martial Arts curriculum. Sifu Lopez has spent many years performing for Tucson Chinese Cultural Center and giving presentations as Chinese Physical Culture Coach for Tucson Unified School District.
