SIFU WILLIAM GEERTSMA
William started learning Wing Chun from Sigung Rick Spain in 1994 at the age of twenty.
By 1998, William was teaching Kung Fu, and by 1999 he had opened a school of Wing Chun Kung Fu.
As a youngster, William was (and still is) a huge fan of Bruce Lee, and has always respected the Chinese forms of martial arts.
Starting out by learning boxing and then kickboxing, William soon determined that training with gloves was not completely practical in self-defense situations.
William complements his Wing Chun Kung Fu knowledge with industry recognised Certificate III in Fitness and Certificate IV in Fitness, allowing him to impart a more holistic set of knowledge to his students.
Will teaches the open hand forms of sil lum tao, chum kil and bil jee and is expertly trained in mok jong (wooden dummy).
Will is also proficient in the traditional Wing Chun weapons including butterfly swords and dragon pole, as well as modern weapons including knife, two handed baton, single stick and double sticks and nunchuku.
