For many years Grand Master Benny Meng (Muung Hing Fung) has researched, trained, and
taught the system of Martial Arts that has now become “Shaolin Wing Chun”. His teachings
were borne out of the multiple Wing Chun families that he encountered during his search for
the origins of Wing Chun, not only as a martial art, but also as a historical tribute to the Shaolin
Monks that provided the spiritual foundation that is the soul of the Shaolin Martial arts. The
Wing Chun families from which Shaolin Wing Chun has been derived are Hek Ki Boen Eng Chun,
Hung Fa Yi Eng Chun, and the Ving Tsun Athletic Association, which in the modern times was
led by Grand Master Ip Man. Realizing that all martial arts have a common thread for combat
using Ti (Kicking), Da (Striking), Shuai (Throwing) and Na (Submitting) Grand Master Meng has
utilized all of his knowledge of martial arts to develop and found a system that incorporated all
of these attributes.
In a combat situation he uses multiple concepts in a scientific manner i.e.; “Three Dimensional
Combat”, which is based upon Height, Width, and Depth, to align the practitioner with their
opponent, while utilizing a second concept “Time (Position), Space (Area to be Controlled), and
Energy (Pressing Forward)”, to gain a superior position, and a third concept; “The Five Ranges
of Combat” to identify which types of weapons to deploy, and a fourth concept; “The Five
Stages of Combat” to express the proper strategy. All of this is used to execute a scientific
attack in the most efficient manner.
All of these concepts are utilized in Luk Dim Bu Kuen Faat (6 ½ Point Fist Methods) which
includes San Da, Kiu Sau, and Lut Sau, moving within Chi Sau and being supported by Chi Kiu,
Chi Da, and Sun Faat. These scientific Shaolin Wing Chun methods are deployed in San Da and
Mia San Jong as well as actual combat.
As a result of his many years of Researching, Training, and Teaching Grand Master Meng has
gained an insight into Wing Chun that is above and beyond his peers. He is using this expertise
as a foundation to bring Shaolin Wing Chun into the Olympic world.

In general, kung fu refers to the Chinese martial arts, also called wushu and quanfa. In China it refers to any study, learning, or practice that requires patience, energy, and time to complete. We teach the term in our curriculum as "Skills and abilities developed through hard work over time," truly, in its original meaning, kung fu can refer to any discipline or skill achieved through hard work and practice, not necessarily martial arts. The Chinese literal equivalent of "Chinese martial art" would be 中國武術 zhōngguó wǔshù
Meng's Martial Arts of Cincinnati, under the leadership of Master John Lambert, teaches in the very traditional method: "chuen jing tung" in Cantonese, or "authentically passing down." He teaches as he was taught- indeed, IS taught- by his Sifu, Grandmaster Benny Meng, in the most authentic way, passing the art down to his students as it is passed down to him by his teacher.
Master Lambert is a 3rd Generation Disciple of Grand Master Ip Man. He is a Disciple of his Sifu, Grand Master Benny Meng, a Disciple of Grand Master Moy Yat, who was himself a Disciple of Grand Master Ip Man. The legendary Bruce Lee was a student of Grand Master Ip Man, which in turn- following traditional Wing Chun family association- makes him a Sibaak of Grand Master Benny Meng.
