We were very fortunate to have the opportunity to have Sifu Chong Kok Fu from Kun Seng Keng in Muar, Malaysia come to Melbourne to run a series of workshops for us. Sifu Chong was the reigning Lion Dance Champion with his head player Si Tiam Yong from 2006-2009. They hold the current record of 19 World Championship Titles. After retiring from competition in 2009, both ex-champions coach for KSK and affiliated teams. This is Sifu Chong's first visit to Melbourne and it was great having him here for 6 days running 4 workshops over the weekend. Our workshops started on Friday night and extended through the weekend until Monday night. Thank you for the team for making an effort to come out, some of them did not work on the weekend to attend. The knowledge we have gained from the weekend was already put into practice and we could see improvements from some of our members already, all thanks to a fantastic coach with vast experience in the art of lion dance. We hope to have the opportunity to train with him again in the near future. We would like to thank Master Siow Ho Phiew and Mr Tan Ching Hong (KSK) for granting us this unique experience!
