Master Chen Wei Gun was an extremely talented Chinese Martial
artist. He was first and foremost an extremely high level
However, some of his other skills and teachers were:
Hop Gar Gung Fu
Hung Gar Kung Fu
Nam Quan with Master Huang Xiaoshan
Choy Li Fut
5 forms System with Master Huang Yuwen
Cai-Li Fuo Quan with Master Chen Changmao
Xia Quan with Master Deng Zhenjiang
Lianshou Duanda and Shaohuo Gun with Master
In spite of these impressive
accomplishments in the External style of Kung Fu (Gung Fu), his lifelong passion
was for Qigong (Chi Gong),
and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Sifu Chen studied these Internal Arts:
Taijiquan and Qigong with Masters Li Jianquan and Huang Huaqing; Yang, Wu, Chen and Sun
style Taijiquan with Fu Yonghui; Yang Style Taijiquan with Master Fu Zhongwen; Traditional
Chinese Medicine and An Mor (Chinese Massage Techniques) with his maternal grandfather.
Master Chen's Taijiquan (Tai Chi) skills were such that he mastered the following routines:
|• Yang Style 24, 40 and 88
• Competition Short Chen and Long Chen
• Competition Wu
• Competition Sun
• 32, 42, and Wudang Gim/Sword
• 5 Star Hammer
• Kwan Dao
Master Chen studied insatiably and continuously improved both his Qigong and himself.
He played a myriad of classical Chinese wind and string musical instruments and he was also a great chef.
Master Chen Wei Gun was a quite, modest man to whom integrity and honor were more important than notoriety, power and money.
His art and his life inspired all who were fortunate enough to know him. His spirit truly reflected Taijiquan's principles of Wu Wei,
Harmony and Balance. He remained calm and peaceful even throughout the last 2 months of his life,
which he spent on his deathbed knowing he would never leave it alive.
He was truly a Master of Qigong.
Very Sincerely Yours,
Gary Giamboi, Shifu
