Desiree, Assistant Instructor
Desiree at the age 10 was inspired by the late Bruce Lee and his fighting style. Being half way across the world, her culture would not allow a young girl to participate in this type of activity. It wasn't until she came to the United States years later that she was able to take martial arts classes. At the time she was not able to find a Wing Chun school and took Kenpo Karate.
Years later she extensively took Wing Chun of a different lineage. Martial Arts was put on hold due to her pursuit of an advanced degree. Her passion for Wing Chun never diminished and was fortunate to find the Gary Lam Wing Chun system, which she has learned first hand to be superior to other systems. Currently, she is a level 2 and takes both private and open classes.
