Instructor And Student Awards

Instructor and Student of the Year

On the this table you can see the historical awards to the Instructors and students who have had a profound influence of the quality of the UK Wing Chun Kung Fu Assoc.  The Award is presented for the year previous.  Sadly we had the untimely passing of one of our most loved teachers/students, Bobby Beach, in 2013.

The new Bobby Beach Memorial Trophy is a lovely cup awarded to Instructors as a way of keeping the spirit of a great UKWCKFA son alive.  The trophy bears his name and the first recipient was his long term friend, and training partner, Sifu Kevin Oldman.  Kevin has now retired from teaching and training.

The following year the Award went to Alex Evans who took over Sifu Kevin Oldman’s class.  He too has since retired from teaching formal classes but is working hard to put new instructors in place in the Norwich area, thus keeping the Art that Bobby, Kevin and Alex loved alive.

Alex passed the mantel over to Ryan Moyce, another dedicated Norfolk based student.  The legacy of Norfolk Wing Chun is quite incredible.
