“ I was lucky enough to find Sifu Clear, I have never experienced anyone better at teaching Martial Arts.”
Master Clear directed me to Master Anthony Ho, and explained Master Ho was a senior instructor he respected. Master Ho is the most amazing fighter I have ever met. I train with Master Ho weekly and have the honor of being the 37th of the 38 students he has certified in the last 60 years. I feel very fortunate to be able to continue to study with both my teachers.
