As of December 28, 2005 Wednesday, Grandmaster Wong Jack Man officially retired. He faithfully and diligently taught gung-fu for 45 years. The number of times he missed class can be counted on one hand, and this over a period that spanned decades! He might have missed a class due to the Loma Prieta Earthquake, but other than extraordinary things of this nature, Grandmaster Wong was extremely punctual. He was definitely a person whom his students looked forward to seeing! We will all miss his presence! In the meantime, we send him our best wishes, and hope he enjoys himself.
