I have had a lot of different Martial Arts teachers over the last 22 years. Many teachers don't show you the practical applications and implications of it's techniques. Most want you to stay for years, so hold back the gold. Meaning if ever you need to use the techniques, you would be severely disadvantaged. Some, teachers would face the front demonstrating and not doing much in the way of corrections. I saw people who attended for years but clearly still couldn't punch correctly or be able to use it in a fight.

Under COVID-19 Lock-down, I found Leo. I was very reluctant to do a virtual Zoom class as I didn't believe the teacher would be able to correct me properly. How wrong was I? This teacher is BRILLIANT. He is so knowledgeable and shares it freely. He explains things well and is very observant to make sure you do things properly. The power is in correct form. I would like to say I am delighted with Leo's Hung Gar class and will look to continue training with him on a longer term basis when everything has calmed down a little.

Now I see why he's a Martial Arts advisor for so many films. He really lives and breathes this stuff.

Overall, he is one of the best teachers I've ever met and it is a privilege to train with him. If you get the opportunity to learn from him. Go for it!

I have the pleasure to be instructed by Sifu Leo and other seniors, from the start you can tell how much passion and devotion is put in his lessons they have patience and they always answers any questions.

The class members are easy to practice with and respect each other making it easy to learn.I highly recommend his classes to anyone looking to learn self defence or looking to learn an form of art that’s beneficial to mid, body and soul.

Sifu Leo is a brilliant teacher with great humour. He explains every move in detail so you obtain clarity and understanding on how to perform them yourself. The class and students individually are very welcoming and even though i have been going for only several lessons now, i already feel part of the school.

Looking forward to learning more at each class and fully absorbing myself in Chinese Kung Fu, Wing Chun. John B.

Master Leo Au Yeung is a very skilled and dedicated teacher of Internal Wing Chun.

I went to Sifu's Internal Wing Chun Seminar on Saturday 15th December 2018 and it was amazing, the time flew and I learnt about Chi and Internal Chinese Kung fu. This was especially useful as I have only recently joined the school and the Seminar has helped me to hone in on a number of elements to help me improve and provide me with a deeper understanding.

I learnt more about what internal Wing Chun is, how to interpret signs from your opponent and the constant flow and expansion of energy which is quite infectious.

The transparent syllabus is very helpful and consisted on the day of learning the core skills of level 1:

(1.) Holding / Rooting, taking pressure on the body, (2.) Using the body to take pressure on the arms, (3.) Generating upward energy from the body (floating) (4.) Generating downward energy (sinking).

The Seminar explained how to generate energy, working the body altogether, understanding body mechanics, relaxing the body, effective breathing techniques and using your core effectively, and how tendons play a key role. How to identify tension in an opponent immediately upon contact, and then uplifting them using the floating technique.

The other students are very accommodating and encourage progression, and the feeling of comradery is great and welcoming.

I could go on as the Seminar and lessons are quite unique and amazing, come see for your self.

I have been training with Sifu Leo for approx 3 years, he is an incredibly talented martial artist and teacher. He has given me the opportunity to travel around the world with him and meet many different Wing Chun and Kung Fu Schools. He has encourage me to practice hard and to improve myself as a martial artist. He is a forward thinking instructor and constantly developing and improving his internal style of Wing Chun. He has studied many different Martial Arts and Fighting Styles and adds his knowledge and understanding of these to help improve the Wing Chun he teaches. I feel very lucky to have found a Sifu with his ability and I am grateful for his attention to helping me develop as an individual and Martial Artist. Sifu Leo is conveniently located in central London and I would encourage anyone that is interested in Wing Chun to visit his school. It is not easy to find someone this talented and experienced.
