International Academy of WingChun
Chief WingChun Instructor
My name is Greg Willis and I am the chief instructor of the International Academy of WingChun - Great Britain. I have been diligently leading my Caterham academy since April 2011. My passion for Martial Arts began with TaeKwon-Do in 1995 were I gained my 1st Dan Black Belt in 2001 under the instruction of Umesh Vijapura.
In 2003 left the ITF and began training a new martial art, Wing Tsun under the wider European Wing Tsun Organisation group and GM Keith R. Kernspecht. These we great building blocks for me into the world of wing chun and it wasn't until 2007 when I found the most complete and formidible system of WingChun which was created by Grandmaster Sifu Klaus Brand known as The International Academy of WingChun. This style of WingChun was nothing like I had experienced before and I am as passionate about the learning and teaching this style of martial art today as I was when I first experienced it.
Since 2007 I have gained a 3rd Technician Grade, an Instructor Grade, a Student level in Escrima (weapons fighting) and jointly lead the IAW-UK with 4 other fellow Head Instructors. I have been promoted to chief instructor of the IAW in May 2021, a position granted to me by Dai Sifu Klaus Brand and one which I am honoured to hold.
In October 2022 I opened a new SAT - Special Applications Training Academy located in the area of Woking providing the very best elements of WingChun, Combat and Escrima fighting systems.
Myself and my assistant instructors are talented professionals, who are passionate about providing the best Martial Arts tuition available to anyone, regardless or Age, Gender or Physical Attributes. We offer the guidance and support necessary for our students to reach their full potential.
