The Western Australian Choy Lee Fut Kung Fu Association was established by Masters Vince and David Lacey in the 1960’s, as Buk Sing Choi Lay Fut. The school was later given to Master Franko Riggio (David Lacey’s “best student”) in the early 90’s and reregistered as Western Australia Choy Lee Fut Kung Fu School. Currently the Western Australia Choy Lee Fut Kung Fu, Lohan Qi Gong and Lion Dance Association is managed by Master James Lui.
Master James Lui started learning Choy Lee Fut in 1986, in Sydney. He later became Wing Sing Tong (WST) in 1987, learning with Grand Master Chen Yong Fa. Master Lui began formal instruction in 1989. In 1992 he moved to Perth bringing traditional Choy Lee Fut Lion Dancing theory to Perth Choy Lee Fut. Master Lui then joined forces with Master Frank Riggio to form the Western Australian Choy Lee Fut Kung Fu Association. Master James Lui has been responsible for the management of Western Australia Choy Lee Fut Kung Fu, since 2005.
