Sifu Chris Mah Head Instructor
My name is Chris Mah and I am the Northfield, IL branch instructor of the CWTA. For 30 years I have trained and attained black belts in various martial arts including Wing Tsun Kung Fu. In this journey, I have been given the gift of the knowledge and experience in application of my mentors and instructors. Today, under the guidance of Master Carson Lau, I teach Wing Tsun Kung Fu so that hundreds of years from now someone will have the opportunity to enjoy the kung fu journey that I have traveled.

Wing Tsun Kung Fu has a simple yet highly effective approach to self defense. It is based on quality of movement, rather than quantity. It is based on principles and physics (elemental self defense), rather than brute strength, youthful suppleness or complex combinations. Of course, good physical condition is always a significant factor in a fight, a good Wing Tsun Kung Fu practitioner can end a fight quickly without relying upon his conditioning. This is exactly what is needed in a real-world, high-stressful, and unfortunate situation.

It was with this humble background that I approach each of my classes. Through the passing-on of my knowledge, I aspire to build the character, inner strength, courage, vision, respect and discipline of my students. I invite and welcome you to our class.
