Wing Chun Features on ABC TV's 'Stuff the British Stole'

In March 2022, award-winning documentary Marc Fennell and his team approached Academy Manager and Senior Instructor Tristan Fung to collaborate on a televised version of his popular podcast, Stuff the British Stole.

Episode 4 of this series tells the story of the 1899-1901 Boxer Rebellion in China and how British forces took a precious Ming Dynasty sculpture, which now stands on display in the Art Gallery of NSW. Along with its other episodes, this series raises important questions about the Western possession of culturally significant foreign artefacts.

Tristan supports this episode by showcasing Wing Chun's Chum Kiu, Biu Jee and Butterfly Knife movements. He also offers his perspective on the Boxer Rebellion and what he, as a martial artist, would have done at the time.
