Filming “The Chemist” at West Coast Wing Chun
PRESS RELEASE – SEPT. 2, 2014 – IMMEDIATE
West Coast Wing Chun brings Kung Fu Cinema to Signal Hill.
Grammy award winner Jo Jo Garza, bass player and singer of Los Lonely Boys, along with renowned Grandmasters Eric Lee and Samuel Kwok brought a little Hong Kong action to Art Camacho’s newest movie, “The Chemist” last week at West Coast Wing Chun located in Signal Hill, Ca. Lee has filmed over 80 movies including “Big Trouble in Little China” and “Rambo First Blood Part 11”. This is Garza and Kwok’s first motion picture.
Three scenes were shot inside West Coast Wing Chun’s new location on Junipero Ave in Signal Hill. Master Bryan Talbot, owner and Chief Instructor of the kwoon (school), moved to a larger location just this past May. “We wanted to bring a little bit of China to Signal Hill. To create a space where our students could forget about their problems and feel at peace. We didn’t want to be the next McDojo. There isn’t anything cookie cutter about Wing Chun Kung Fu. ” Talbot and his disciple, Siu Lo Si Serj Macias, a Signal Hill native, performed stunts in the movie.
Wing Chun Kung Fu is no stranger to cinema. It is a very unique and scientific form of martial arts that originates from China and was later refined in Hong Kong by the late Great Grand Master Ip Man. There have been several movies about Ip Man in the recent years, including the award winning “Ip Man” and “Grand Masters”. Ip Man was also Sifu to the late Bruce Lee.
Wing Chun’s specialty is in close contact combat, using quick punches and kicks with a tight defense, coordinated through agile stances and footwork for a quick advance. The effectiveness of this fighting style is achieved by well coordinated attacks with simultaneous defense and vise-verse. Due to its effectiveness this martial art makes for an effective form of self defense. West Coast Wing Chun offers classes for adults, women and children aged six and up.
