Later he trained under legendary Grandmaster Shek Kin from Bruce Lee’s “Enter the Dragon”, a great honor since he was Grandmaster Shek Kin’s only student.

Grandmaster Lee Koon Hung traveled a lot teaching Choy Lay Fut and was asked numerous times by many governments to come and share his Kung Fu and Lion Dance with their countries. Today our association and many of Grandmaster Lee Koon Hung’s students work very hard to teach and pass on Choy Lay Fut Kung Fu the way it was taught to us by Grandmaster, his straightfoward philosophy of hard work and focus continues to inspire us all. Even in his last days before his untimely passing due to heart problems, he would make us video tape our Kung Fu and he would write down what we needed to fix… And when he could not keep his eyes open… He made us audio record our classes…
