Sifu Alex Wallenwein
Sifu Alex Wallenwein has been teaching Wing Tsun in Houston since 1988. He is the source of all Wing Tsun in and around Houston. His'Sifu' (father-teacher) is Dai-Sifu Keith Kernspecht, the head of the enormously successful European Wing Tsun Organization in Germany. His Si-Gung is Wing Tsun Great Grandmaster Leung Ting in Hong Kong.
He has also studied under his Si-Hing, Dai-Sifu Emin Boztepe, and his Si-Dei, Dai-Sifu Simon Mayer, the founder of Bay-Mountain Wing Tsun.
Sifu Alex teaches group and private classes. His teaching philosophy is simple: "Every student needs to succeed and have loads of fun while doing just that. My job is to make sure this happens - consistently."
His personal teaching system is geared and fine-tuned to achieve this. You have to be able to successfully use what you learn from the get-go. No matter how fundamental or advanced the technique, you come away with the confident knowledge that you can apply it and win.
