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).  Ken completed his student level training under Sifu Shawn Wallace at the EBMAS Wing Chun school and was awarded his 1st Technician Certification personally by Dai Sifu Emin Boztepe in 2018.

Ken continued as assistant instructor at the EBMAS school until he met Dai Sifu Thommy Boehlig in early 2019.  Ken and Sifu Thommy 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 Certification was accepted by Sifu Thommy in late 2019.
