"By receiving this award I hope to bring awareness to our bright future, the students of Shaolin Kung Fu Lion Dance Team.” Master Peter Chan
Master Chan began his studies in Hong Jia Quan and lion dancing at the age of 12, and recalls the hours of practice to perfect his art. “If you practice martial arts without total concentration, without making an effort, without correct practice, without attentiveness during practice, the Master can fling you or perhaps scold you,” he says. Master Chan is the third generation in lineage from martial arts master Lam Sai Wing; his direct Sifu is Grandmaster Dr. Chiu Chi Ling.
Along with his wife Amy Chan, Master Chan is the founder of Shaolin Kung Fu Lion Dance Team, based in the Chinatown section of Oakland, CA. Master Chan founded the company, a selffunded nonprofit, to teach traditional Chinese culture and Lion Dance techniques to a new generation for free. The training focuses on the martial spirit of saywuy and the qualities of politeness (luy), uprightness of mind (yee), honesty (lien) and sense of honor and respect (chih) in order to help students excel in life and become better individuals.
“I am humbled, honored, and at the same time excited to receive this Masters Hall of Fame award,” says Master Chan. “By receiving this award I hope to bring awareness to our bright future, the students of Shaolin Kung Fu Lion Dance Team.”
