SIFU JEREMY HECTOR
Sifu Jeremy Hector has been a martial artist for most of his life, devoting over two decades to the study of various styles of Chinese Kung Fu with well-respected masters. He has experience in the Southern Five Family Fist and Five Animals, Northern Shaolin, Praying Mantis (Tai Chi Praying Mantis and Seven Star), Gin Yee Baguazhang, Yang and Chen Tai Chi Chuan, and traditional Chinese lion dance.
He has been an active member of the Kung Fu community, performing in countless demonstrations as a martial artist, lion dancer, and lion dance drummer. He has been a part of The Lotus Festival, The Moon Festival, The Golden Dragon Parade, and many other annual events around the Los Angeles area. For the past three years, he and his students have lent their support to several high profile shows, and he has served as a judge for distinguished competitions: Long Beach Internationals, Disney Origins, and the Tempt One Martial Arts Championships benefiting ALS research.
Sifu Hector has earned a black sash instructor certificate in the Five Family Fist style from Master Louie Martinez; the style was popularized by Grand Master Ark Wong who was featured in the Kung Fu TV series. He continues to receive guidance in that style from Grand Master Seming Ma, the inheritor of the system, and his top disciple, Master Robert Williams.
He has also received training from many distinguished masters and grand masters: Al Simmons, Reggie Gonzales, Rob Moses, Hao Xinlian, Lee Kam Wing, and Zhu Tian Cai to name just a few.
Most recently, Sifu Hector was accepted as a student of Grand Master Raymond Wong, an expert in three different styles of Kung Fu and a legend in the Chinese martial arts community.
Over the past few years with a number of prominent shows offered for lion dance, Sifu Hector wanted to up his game in that area, so he sought out a more traditional approach; thus, he began studying with Grand Master Steven Baugh of the Lohan School of Shaolin in Las Vegas. He now brings that traditional training to Southern California for instruction and performance.
