The student will learn how to effectively use her hands, elbows, and knees to convince an aggressor that she is not a target. Additionally, the student will learn how to dissolve and escape from various grabs and chokes. The goal is to get you home safe, not fight.

About the Instructor

Sifu Elliot Leung’s formal Wing Chun training began in the early 1970s with Sifu Peter Chow on Atlantic Street in Stamford until the instructor’s abrupt disappearance.

Later during college, Elliot studied Tang Soo Do. After reaching the rank of red belt in almost two years, Elliot decided not to take his test for black belt. There was still something missing that only Wing Tsun could offer.

In 2002 Elliot came upon a phone number in a martial arts magazine. After making an appointment with the instructor, Elliot watched the instructor’s movements and listened to his explanations. Impressed by the breadth of knowledge and skill of the instructor, Elliot immediately committed to be his student. To this day Elliot Leung is proud to call Alex Richter, ‘SiFu’.

After years of rigorous training and study under his Sifu, Elliot reached the rank of Wing Tsun Technician (2) and was able to open his own school in Stamford, where his journey first began. Club Kung Fu was born, and Sifu Leung has lead countless students to better themselves through the simple, direct, and effective art of Wing Tsun Kung Fu.
