NEW PRODUCTS – Sibok, Rocco Ambrose, has released his new DVDs, Wing Chun Do Chi Sao. He dissolves the mystery of Chi Sao and defines it in terms of physics and body mechanics, the natural biomechanics that make the Wing Chun Do system so effective. WCD Chi Sao is a culmination of his 25 years of study with Sijo James DeMile, founder of the Wing Chun Do Gung Fu system.
Sibok Rocco Ambrose is well known as a consummate instructor, highly detailed, offering step-by-step methodology and personalized instruction. His DVDs reveal the science that is Wing Chun Do Chi Sao. He is able to put together the puzzle of Chi Sao and backs it up with physical principles that any novice can learn. Directed by Sijo DeMile and filmed at the Tao of Wing Chun Do studio in Rogue River, Oregon. Check the Shop Page for these DVDs and others, by the founder, James DeMile and his inheritor, Rocco Ambrose.

CONGRATULATIONS SIFU! – Jeffrey J. Maletz after completing his Basics Program in the Instructor In Training Program has gained a new title. No longer sihing (older kung fu brother or trainer), Jeff will now be known as Sifu Jeff Maletz. Jeff walked into our school just shy of his eighteenth birthday, and became a constant at Ambrose Academy. He is more than just a student and we are very proud of his achievement. A ceremony and celebration will take place sometime this summer.
A SPECIAL BIRTHDAY – One of our long-time students, Dominick Martinelli, will be turning 80 years old this August. Dominick started Wing Chun Do when he was 65 years old. A very active man, Dominick likes to go dancing at least two times a week, takes tai chi, and loves Wing Chun Do. We definitely cannot let this milestone go unnoticed.
