About Si-Hing Mel Charman:

Martial Arts Experience:

I first started Chi Wai Kung Fu in 2008 after my son persuaded me to have ago, and I haven’t looked back. It was also a good way of keeping fit because, in 1995, I had a heart bypass.

In my time at Chi Wai, I have progressed from white belt to 3rd degree black belt and I’m still learning.

In 2009, I started to help in the training side of Chi Wai as a SWAT member (aiding in teaching other students in a class), so I could  help others and then, in 2016, I was graded to become a full instructor. 

Martial Arts Ambition:

To see and help in the growth of confidence and self-esteem in other students and help them gain their black belt and beyond.
