the Power of the late legendary GM Chee Kim Thong through Master Tim
See-Meng Chan !"
a Traditional Chinese Martial Art Master coming out of retirement to
the ancient secrets of martial powers and applications"
Dear Fellow Martial
When Bruce Lee said, 'Here lies a once
fluid man overcome by the classical Mess', he was actually making the
observation of modern traditional Chinese martial arts that seemed to
be rather rigid and lost the combative elements with the dilution of
its original lethal intent. Being a
street fighter himself, he found the need to add the combative elements
from other martial arts into his repertoire that make Jeet Kune Do we
we often hear of great martial art skills
of past masters steeped in traditional Chinese Martial Arts.
In Taijiquan, we have the Undefeatable Yang Lu Chan who could
not be defeated by serious challengers at that time, in Wing Chun we
have Ip Man who trained Bruce Lee to be formidable in street fights and
then in Wuzuquan (Fists of the Fives Ancestors) we have Chee Kim Thong
who became a legend in
Malaysia. Fortunately, tradtional Chinese Martial Arts in its
full glory have not been totally lost and they are some masters who
still have them. Master Tim See-Meng Chan, the fifth disciple
of the late GM
Chee Kim Thong of Wuzuquan fame, is one such master and he is a grandmaster of Wuzuquan. In fact he
was supposed to be disciple number two but at that time there was no
permission from his guardian, that is another story in itself.
MMA becomes mainstream,
and this is way before Bruce Lee was even borne let alone the father of
MMA. The art is a mixture of five systems, hence the term Fists of the Five Ancestors:
Baihe (White Crane for developing sinews and speed of attack)
Da Sheng (Monkey King's art for its agility)
Taizu (Emperor's Fist for its physical power)
Luohan (18 immortals) and Dazun (Damo) for the mind and breathing techniques
Xuan Nu (The Fairy Lady for its soft techniques)
Tim See-Meng Chan is one of the top inner disciples of the late
renowned GM Chee Kim Thong of Malaysia. Although he learnt the
full tradition of the Wuzu art from his teacher and hence classified as
a Traditional Martial Art Master, his thinking is progressive and
definitely in tune with modern values. He has extensive training
both external and internal
martial arts. His martial art resume is pretty impressive backed up by
his kung fu championship in his early years. His expertise is in
Wuzuquan, Shaolin Luohan Ru-yi, Dong Ying Jie Taiji, Yi Quan and
Luk Hop Par Fat (Six Harmony Art). Here is an example of his power form from
Master Tim is now comfortably retired in
Singapore after a distinguished career in the international banking
industry. It was through a facebook friend's introduction
that I met Master Tim. In my transit through Singapore for my
consulting work assignment, I wanted to meet a Taiji master.
It turned out that he is also a long time disciple of Chee
Kim Thong. So I wrote a post about our meeting as part of my
sharing of experience on Facebook. As it turned
out, it opened up a 'can of worms' revealing some political
infightings in the fraternity. That of course raised my
interest and curiosity to find out more about Master Tim. I even
re-visited him in Singapore to check his power through touch hands.
What I discovered was even more fascinating and that Master
Tim is indeed the real deal. He asked me to hold him strong
and he was able to move me from one side to the other using his Shaolin Luohan
Ruyi subtle power. I suggested to him that as a true disciple of Chee
Kim Thong, he owed it to his sifu to share the true teaching and spread
the legacy. Fortunately he agreed to come out of retirement to share
what he learnt from the late Chee Kim Thong as authorised by the man
out of retirement and spreading the legacy
was invited to showcase his martial arts to selected schools in
Singapore as part of the Singapore Golden Jubilee Celebration.
Here's the interview he did on that project.
Now he had agreed to come to Sydney to showcase
his martial arts to Sydneysiders. He ran a weekend
seminar on his martial arts especially the White Crane Wuzuquan.
seminar showcased Master Tim's insights
on power development and combat tactics from each art. As we know in
these are the two critical factors for effectiveness. He
shared his insights on the applications of Yin Yang Palms, 8 Essences, 5
Elements, 7 Offenses, 6 directional movements and many other processes.
The seminar was recorded so that
people who were not able to attend physically could still learn from the
videos. This would really fulfill Master Tim's duty to share
the legacy with the world.
