Becoming a “Sifu” for Evergreen Hall


The above ranks denote personal achievement. Students at the rank of Instructor or above, can additionally be granted the title of “Sifu” (meaning “teacher”). This title is discretionary, and determined by the Chief Instructor (position held by Master Matt Robbins); it will be reserved for students who have demonstrated an aptitude for teaching, and have consistently assisted the Chief Instructor in teaching Wing Chun students.

Those interested in progressing toward becoming a Sifu, should approach the Chief Instructor, who will be able to provide the appropriate training and support.
