Alec Chan started his shaolin kung fu training 11 years ago at age six. From then to today he has been diligent, focused and determined. He asked insightful questions, worked tirelessly, and never gave up in the face of any setback. His talent, strength of character and mental fortitude allowed him yesterday to earn his red stripe.
Since 1982 thousands of students all over the world have studied the YMAA Shaolin program. Of those students only 39 reached the red stripe level, Alec is the 40th to join this elite group.
It has been an honor and a pleasure to be his teacher these past 11 years. I am deeply proud of his accomplishments. Alec truly embodies the spirit of kung fu.
Congratulations to him for this outstanding achievement.
