    I'm new to this forum and need some help if anyone is able. I am currently a student of Temple Kung Fu (Grand Master O.E.Simon), and for various reasons am unhappy with my training and plan on switching schools.

    I've located a school near my house...in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. It is called the "Chung Wah" system, and they teach various styles of Kung Fu. The head instructor is Master Lee Chi Wai, a 31st generation shaolin warrior disciple of the venerable Su Xi. All of the information I've been able to locate so far gives me a good feeling about the legitimacy of his training, and while I intend to go check out the school and instructors, I'm wondering if anyone has ever heard of him before. I would appreciate hearing from any current/former students instructors as well.

    I feel I was taken by TKF and Grand Master Simon and want to make sure this doesn't happen again. I appreciate any comments. Thanks.

  3. I went to one of his tournaments a couple months back, seems like a good guy, cant say anything about his skills, but his students were good fighters.

    Thanks for the help guys. I know it's very difficult to determine the legitimacy of instructors now a days, but at least knowing that his students are well trained gives me an idea. I'm sure I'll end up making my decision based more on a "gut feeling" about him in the end, since I've found out about as much as I can so far. I think after my TKF experiences...at least I'll know what to look out for now!

    You could do far worse than studying kung fu with Chi Wai - he's about one million times better than your previous school.

    What happened?

    Are you refering to what happened with Temple Kung Fu? Nothing specific happened with my training, but there are lots of postings on this and other forums about TKF and Grand Master Simon. In fact, there is a whole separate forum now by ex-students and ex-instructors about the shady business practices, qualifications of GMS himself, and quality of training.

    I meant, did you switch schools? If so, how's the new one?

    Oh...sorry...yeah, I haven't switched yet. I have stopped going to TKF though. I've just been too busy this month, and the school I plan to start at was actually in the process of re-locating. I'm pretty sure I will try out this one with Master Lee Chi Wai, probably around mid-January. Everything I've found out so far looks pretty positive =), and kung fu schools in this area are somewhat limited. At least for any style I'm interested in learning.

    I'm thinking I'd like to learn a praying mantis style. Can anyone explain the differences between 7-star, Plum flower, etc. I know Chi Wai teaches a couple different ones but I don't think I need to worry about it too much right now.

    I know this is an old Post but I'm curious to know if shaolin_guy ever went to Sifu Lee Chi Wai and if so what was the verdict? I'm looking for Kung Fu schools but there aren't many around. Sifu Lee's Chung Wah seems really interesting. Just wanna know if he's the real deal.

    The original poster (shaolin_guy) hasn't been around for years and his account isn't active any more, so I don't think he's going to be providing any updates.
