our story

Mak Che-kong Sifu begins training under Grandmaster Chan Chi-keung in the Hung Gar style, practicing at Master Chan’s mo kwoon / martial club in Tai Kok Tsui. Mak Sifu performed the traditional bai see ceremony, becoming an official student of Grandmaster Chan Chi-keung. Mak trained at the Tai Kok Tsui school until it finally closed in 1982.

Mak Sifu begins his kung fu teaching career when invited to instruct by the Hong Kong Boy Scouts Association. The first venue for him to teach traditional Lion Dance and Hung Gar kung fu was at the Boy Scouts headquarters on Cox Road in the Jordan district of Hong Kong. Mak Che-kong Sifu taught at this location for three years.

After spending a decade away from Hong Kong working as an engineer, Mak Sifu returned to the city. He then made the decision to become a full-time kung fu teacher. Initially, he taught small groups of students outdoors in various parks, and larger classes of young people at local schools and sports centres.

With the support of his student Bey Logan, Mak Che-kong opened his first full-time kung fu school in a warehouse located in the Cheung Sha Wan district of Hong Kong. This initial incarnation of the Martial Club provided a base for regular private and group classes, and a mecca for foreign students who visited Hong Kong to enjoy a residential training experience.

The Martial Club relocated to a bright, sun-lit warehouse space in the Kwai Fong area. Once established there, Mak Sifu invited teachers from other Chinese kung fu disciplines, including Wing Chun, Tong Bei, Tai Chi and Fut Gar, to share the space and hold their own classes. Kwai Fong Martial Club has become the basis for both group and private Hung Gar classes, and for online tuition.
