I am a Chaplain in the Army stationed at Ft Campbell in Kentucky. I live on the Tennessee side of the Post, and I would like to know if anyone knows of a good Wing Chun instructor close to Ft Campbell. I am willing to travel to Nashville, which is about a 30-40 minute drive. I would appreciate anyone's help. Thanks.

My old sifu has students in that area.
Keith Fain is a Wing Tsun instructor in Clarksville, TN.
Plus there are some around the Bowling Green, KY area. not sure of their name.
.

If you find yourself in Louisville area then look me up.

I just hit up Keith Fain on Facebook. I hope to get a response soon. Are you guys under the Ip Man lineage or a different lineage? I trained in Wing Chun when I was a kid, and I am really looking at getting back to the basics of that system. Again, thanks for your help.

Keith and I both trained under Emin Boztepe, which is part of the Leung Ting lineage. ( Leung Ting was a student of Yip Man)

I've lost touch with Keith and haven't seen him in probably 10 years. He was a 1st technician grade back then (black belt). It looks like he retired for a while but is now back at it, I don't know if he is still with Emin or not.
He can definitely get you up and running with Wing Tsun, regardless.

Thanks. He responded and I will go to his school when I redeploy. I appreciate all of your help. I have talked to several Soldiers that are looking at attending his classes after viewing the Ip Man movie.

I hope it works out for you.
Tell Keith that Rod from the old Kentucky group sends his best.
