Kwong Man Fong Pak Mei Martial Arts Association
THE MAN FONG PAK MEI MARTIAL ARTS ASSOCIATION was established in New York City in 1974, shortly after Master Kwong Man Fong’s departure from Hong Kong in the late 1960’s. Encouraged by Grandmaster Cheung Lai Chun’s third son and Fong’s senior training brother, Cheung Bing Fatt to move to the States, he vowed to teach both Chinese and Westerners according to the true teachings that were conveyed to him by Grandmaster Cheung in his later years. This goes beyond that of physical transmission; it also puts equal emphasis on morality, loyalty and the tenets presented by the Pak Mei Creed. Over 37 years later, we still hold true to this tradition.
Following Master Kwong Man Fong’s retirement in 2011, the school was entrusted to Sifu Edgar Wong. And with assistance from the Association governance, we strive to continue the spread of the Pak Mei system to all that our willing to learn. Students will set out not only to learn a new system, but to master themselves through disciplined training that is truly unique within the martial arts world.
