Seminar with Sifu Abe Santos of Seattle's Jun Fun Gung Fu Academy
On August 17, 2019 Manx Martial Arts Academy was proud to present Sifu Abe Santos of Seattle's Jun Fan Gung Fu Academy -- in Calgary for the first time to promote original Seattle-era Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do!
Sifu Abe Santos has been a friend and student of Sigung Taky Kimura since 1983. He previously taught the Wednesday night class of the Jun Fan Gung Fu Institute of Seattle (Institute) from 2002 to early 2017 and is one of only five Full Instructors directly-certified by Taky Kimura. Abe is the co-founder with Mike Hilow, of the Jun Fan Gung Fu Academy, a private non-commercial Jun Fan JKD school in Seattle whose mission is to perpetuate and advance the legacy, teachings and art of Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do from the Seattle-era, as well as the Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do Sijo Bruce Lee taught directly to Sigung Taky Kimura. The Academy is honoured to be the only JKD school ever endorsed by Linda Lee Cadwell.
Sifu Abe was assisted by Leong Lim, formerly a Senior Student and Demo Team Lead at the Institute, now Senior Assistant at the Academy. More information about the school is at https://www.facebook.com/JunFanGungFuAcademy/.

Sifu Andrew Carine was recently featured in the Canadian Pacific magazine. It covers his life and goals brilliantly.
