About us

About Our Martial Arts Academy


The Global Wing Chun Kung Fu and Karate Academy of Maryland opened in 2002 with the full blessings and guidance under my Sifu Grandmaster William Cheung and my Sensei Kaicho Shihan Wantanabe. We are one of the few schools certified by the Shaolin Temple in China, where we also train. This training academy provides effective, sensible, and reliable instructions on martial arts self defense techniques. We emphasize practical, easy to learn techniques that can be executed without a great amount of force. We cover techniques for long, medium, and short ranges, as well as ground fighting techniques. Our students receive instruction on the location and function of internal meridians and pressure points, which can be both used for self-defense and healing purposes. We emphasize hard work and serious training within a fun and comfortable atmosphere.


Sifu Spencer's knowledge of both kung fu and karate systems allow him to provide his students with effective defensive and offensive techniques that are capable of addressing any type of attack or other situations. We focus on the quality of our martial arts classes as well as your unique and individual needs. Our martial arts training is suitable for all ages and sizes. We emphasize the development of discipline, defensive skills, confidence, stamina, and determination.

The difference between an amateur and a professional: An amateur does it until he gets it right, a professional does it until he can’t get it wrong.
