About Si-Gung Roger Smart

  
Si-Gung Smart

Si-Gung Smart, inspired by his Royal Marine champion boxer father Thomas Smart, was introduced to various forms of unarmed combat techniques from the age of nine and started his own training back in 1960. His interest in martial arts grew into a lifetime passion, with experience that spans over 48 years of dedication to the arts today. He has studied in Hong Kong, China and in his homeland Australia, where he resides today.

Si-Gung Roger Smart was first introduced to the Wing Chun and Weng Chun Kung fu styles of Chinese kung fu under the guidance as a closed door private student of Doctor Allen Lee. Dr Lee passed his knowledge of the Foshan, Yuen Kay San and Mainland versions of the system to Si-Gung Smart. Durring the 1970's he also trained with Si-Fu Lo Chi Cheong of the Ip Man Hong Kong Wing Chun System and ran his school in Perth, Western Australia from 1976-1978. It was not until studying as a private student of Grandmaster Lun Gai, also known as Lun Kai, that Si-Gung Smart learnt Ip Man’s original Foshan version (that was only ever taught to 5 people between 1940-1950 before this version was changed to what is known today as the Yim Man Hong Kong System). Even today, Si-Gung Smart frequently returns to China and continues his studies under Grandmaster Lun Gai’s guidance.
