David Davila ｜ 戴维德
After spending his youth studying different martial arts in the USA, David was introduced to Wing Chun through his uncle on a visit to Paris. Not knowing much about this style nor where to learn, fate soon led him to meet Kenneth Chung in 2001.
With a BA in Chinese Cultural Studies, he is an educated Sinologist and fluent in Chinese. David also holds an MSc in Leadership and is an executive coach by profession. This education in Chinese culture, adult learning, psychology, and coaching informs his approach. He emphasizes inquiry, experimentation and testing to verify understanding.
David started the Shanghai Leung Sheung Wing Chun Student Association in 2011, being the only representative of the Leung Sheung lineage of Wing Chun in mainland China. Since then he has been invited to several other countries to teach Leung Sheung Wing Chun.
