Sifu Sam Ng, a 5th generation practitioner of the
Choy Lay Fut system created by Great Grandmaster Chan Heung, Sifu Sam Ng has
been practicing Choy Lay Fut for over 30 years. A student of the late
Grandmaster To Hon Cheung, Sifu Sam Ng has been teaching Choy Lay Fut Gung
Fu publicly for over ten years. After founding the Ng Family Chinese
Martial Arts Association with his son instructor Philip Ng in 1997, Sifu Sam
Ng has been involved in both organizing and performing in numerous martial
arts demonstrations in the Chicago-land area.
entering his teenage years, Sifu Sam Ng sought the tutelage of 4th
generation Hung Sing Choy Lay Fut Kung Fu Grandmaster To Hon Chueng. Upon
acceptance into Grandmaster To’s academy, Sifu Sam Ng became one among three
of Grandmaster To’s last students before his retirement from the teaching of
the martial arts. During the early 1980’s Sifu Sam Ng and his family
immigrated to the United States to begin a new life. Though a struggle to
earn a living was common for the early immigrant family, Kung Fu still
existed as an integral part of Sifu Sam Ng’s family. Long before
consolidating the Ng Family Chinese Martial Arts Association, Sifu Sam Ng
was teaching Choy Lay Fut Kung Fu to others from his both home as well as
the community centers located within Chicago’s Chinatown.
As Sifu Sam Ng’s student base grew, he and his son, Sifu
Philip Ng, decided upon creating an association to consolidate his group of
students and assistant instructors to better promote the Chinese martial
arts. So in 1997, they officially formed the Ng Family Chinese Martial Arts
Association promoting both Hung Sing Choy Lay Fut and Ving Tsun Kung Fu.
Currently, Sifu Sam Ng operates the Ng Family Chinese
Martial Arts Association with his son, Sifu Philip Ng, in Chicago,
Illinois. In addition to serving as a chief official for numerous national
and international martial arts competitions, Sifu Sam Ng also coordinates
and partakes in numerous performances and master demonstrations.
