Sifu Haase has been practicing and teaching Kung Fu for over 30 years, and has been actively involved in the Wah Lum system for the past 25 years.
In November of 1987, Sifu Haase was given permission to open a Wah Lum club in Palm Bay, Florida. Where he soon began to train numerous students in the traditional art of Kung Fu. After teaching in a club atmosphere for five years, Sifu Haase then decided to open a full time school. So on Saturday, August 4th, 1992 Sifu Haase and his wife Cynthia opened the Wah Lum Kung Fu of Merritt Island, Florida, school. Once again, it was only a short time before numerous students were training at this new addition to the Merritt Island community.
The school continued to grow and prosper and after five years Grandmaster Chan asked Sifu Haase if he would open a school in Tampa.
