Ng Wing Chun can trace its lineage all the way back to the Shaolin temple (over 1500 years) as well as linking directly to Wing Chun's developer, Ng Mui.  Our system of Ng Wing Chun was founded by Sijo L.R. Gray in 1995, and it is named for his teacher, Dr. John Wing Lok Ng.    

    Sijo Gray began his martial arts training in 1960 at the age of 5; by 1972, at the age of 16, he began his training in Wing Chun.  In addition to Wing Chun, Sijo also studied arts such as Judo, Ishyn-Ryu Karate, Kuo Shu Kickboxing, and Tai Chi.  In 1989, Sijo Gray became the first American to win the International Kuo Shu Federation Kickboxing Heavyweight World Championship in Las Vegas, NV.  After winning his world title, Sijo retired from competition and dedicated himself to his study of Wing Chun. 

    Grand Master David Gaw began training with Sijo Gray in 2007, and in 2010, Sijo announced that Master David Gaw would be the inheritor of the system and his successor.  When referring to Master Gaw, Sijo has been quoted as saying that "he spent 25 years in the wrong arts; he is the most naturally gifted Wing Chun student I've ever taught."
