Yat Ga Yan One Family
Gaau Lin Chris Adams
Chris began his love of Traditional Chinese Martial Arts (TCMA) thanks in part to growing up watching martial arts movies in the 1980s. In the early 1990s Chris spent a period of time learning a style of Chinese Kempo which drew from various martial systems such as Fu Jow Pai, Hung Ga, and Chuan Fa. In 2007, Chris found his true Kung Fu home when he joined the Jow Ga Kung Fu Athletic Association in Columbia and began studying under Sifu Derek Johnson. Chris was impressed with the martial aspects of the Jow Ga system and the supportive family atmosphere that is inherent to our style. Chris continues his training and promotion of Jow Ga Kung Fu by helping to coach and teach fellow students at U.S. Jow Ga Martial Arts.
