Ken Smart (1st Technician)
Ken is a business professional, martial artist and a former military officer.
Ken’s formal wing chun training began over a decade ago. Ken trained his first 6 years under Chad Winn (a 2nd Technician and 20-year veteran Law Enforcement Officer with the State of Kentucky). After Chad retired from teaching full-time, Ken completed his student level training under Shawn Wallace (3rd Technician) at the EBMAS school in Kentucky. Ken was awarded his 1st Technician Certification by Dai Sifu Emin Boztepe in 2018.
Ken continued as assistant instructor under Shawn Wallace at the EBMAS school until he met Dai Sifu Thommy Boehlig in early 2019. Ken and Sifu Thommy soon became personal friends and Sifu Thommy later accepted Ken as his personal student.
Ken trained under Dai Sifu Thommy Boehlig over the following year and his previous Technician Certificate was accepted under the BDS system in late 2019. Ken is currently studying and training for his 2nd Technician Grade under Sifu Thommy Boehlig.
