Lau Yat Wing Chun Academy is quite different from the typical
strip-mall martial arts school. Located on a large wooded
lot, the students train in a private environment with both
indoor and outdoor training areas.
With a very limited enrollment, the emphasis is on quality
rather than quantity. Because enrollment is limited, potential
students must pass a formal interview and then must demonstrate
their diligence during the first six months of training before
being finally accepted.
Training at Lau Yat Wing Chun Academy is very thorough, with
emphasis on detail and depth of understanding. In addition
to developing proficiency in the Wing Chun system, students
are trained to discipline both the body and the mind, and
learn to coordinate them together as one. As they progress
in their training, students gradually learn to apply their
kung fu skill to all aspects of their lives.
Lau Yat Wing Chun is located at 616 Arnold Mill Road in Woodstock,
Georgia, 20 miles north of Atlanta. Situated on a large private
lot, the school provides multiple training areas, both indoors
and outdoors. The school is a second home to the students,
who use it both for training and for relaxing. The class schedule
is as follows:
||6:30pm - 8:00pm
||6:30pm - 8:00pm
||9:00am - 10:30am
Chris Burke began his formal martial arts training in Korean
Tae Kwon Do at the age of twelve. Shortly after earning his
black belt, he left, seeking more serious training. After
much searching, he learned of a selective academy headed by
Jason Lau, one of the most well respected Wing Chun instructors
in the world. At age 16, he was accepted as a student at the
academy. After years of demonstrating his diligence and integrity,
Master Lau selected him to become a disciple and gave him
the name Lau Yat. As a disciple, he learned the most advanced
aspects of Wing Chun and also began to teach the students.
Ultimately, he became the academy’s chief instructor.
He has been teaching Wing Chun since 1992. In 2004, he established
Lau Yat Wing Chun Academy in Woodstock, Georgia.
BECOMING A STUDENT
Students must be at least 18 years of age to enroll. Each
student is carefully screened through an initial interview
and then through a six-month probationary training period
before being accepted. Good attendance, diligent effort, and
proper attitude are required to become accepted and remain
a student of the school.
