The North Bristol instructor, Phil Baker, has been practising martial arts since 1985; achieving 3rd Black belt in Wado Ryu Sports Karate and a black sash in Kamon Wing Chun. Before Phil joined Kamon he was a regular competitor and always enjoyed the physical and mental aspects of training and the thrill of competition. Over the years Phil has trained with some excellent Martial Artists from Karate, Lau Gar Kung Fu and Judo; some of whom were; British, European and World Champions. In 1999 Phil saw a demonstration by Master Kevin Chan and was blown away by his ability and the simplicity and yet explosive style of Kamon Wing Chun; he joined a class straightaway. Phil says “it was everything I was looking for in a martial art; within a couple of weeks of training I was hooked and since then it has become part of my life and I have been practising Wing Chun ever since. ”.
Phil’s classes are full of energy and fun, he inspires a desire to learn and develop practising Wing Chun ever since. ”.
