I began my martial arts instruction in the 1970's under the tutledge of Professor Gilbert Bates, a Master under Grandmaster Wong Ark Yuey of the 5 Animal and 5 Family System. Professor Gilbert Bates holds a doctorate in oriental philosophy and also a student of other Masters such as the late Dr. Fenia Woo and Mai Lu Chiang.
|Other information on Sifu Richard Mieir-King is as
Instructor/Sifu JeanSifu Jean West began her study in the martial arts in 1957 when our parents, who were in the Air Force, relocated to Japan for six years. During that time she was enrolled in Judo classes by her mother and achieved the rank of Brown Belt.
In the early 1970's she began studying Southern Sil Lum 5 Animal 5 Family Kung-Fu at Bates Kung-Fu Studio in Southern California instructed by Professor & Mrs. Bates.
Professor Gilbert Bates was a student of Ark Yuey Wong as well as Dr. Fenia Woo and Mai Lu Chiang. During this time, Jean West participated in numerous demonstrations and exhibitions that were held at the Bates Studios and throughout Southern California.
In the early 1980's Jean West continued her study of 5 Animal 5 Family Style with me, Sifu Richard Mieir-King of King's Inner Path Kung Fu in Lakewood, CA (www.KingsKungFu.com). She has continued her studies with me, Sifu Richard Mieir-King, to this present date, achieving her Black Sash in 1987.
Sifu Jean also received a certificate of recognition from the NABBHOF as acknowledgement of her being an Instructor/Sifu on October 2001.
Sifu Jean not only participates in classes taught by Sifu Richard Mieir-King, but is also an instructor. She also participates in demonstrations and seminars we conduct. And she assists in arranging and organizing demonstrations and events in Southern California. She also helps in teaching extension classes, seminars, workshops, etc., wherever we we go and teach.
Sifu West feels that Kung-Fu means hard work and so hard work is what you must put into it. If you only give 10 percent, then that is all you can expect back. If you want more from it, you must give more to it. It's all up to you.
In my own words, "Sifu Jean is an excellent assistant and when I leave the class to her I know that the class and students are in good hands and that they will receive a top notch workout and class!"
