Vicky Ma

I will not be instructing this year, as I am attending UBC to complete my Bachelor of Education and attain my BC Teaching Certification. I’ll still be around doing lion dance, but will not be in kung fu or tai chi classes.

Residence:  Burnaby, BC

Family:  Married with 3 children – 23, 21, 18

Training:  I took Wing Chun kung fu through the Chinese school I was attending when I was 10 years old and I loved it!  My mom enrolled me, hoping it would help me to control my quick temper (it did!).  I trained with Sifu Dunn Wah in Toronto until 1988.  University and starting a family brought a big gap in my training, but now with my children mostly grown and pursuing their own interests, I have been able to return to my childhood passion!  I have been learning Tai Chi from Sifu Marquis Lung since January 2010, and Northern Shaolin Kung Fu since 2011.  What I love about Kung Fu is that you can always challenge yourself to improve – there is no ceiling! (And of course, the weapons forms are the stuff my childhood dreams were made of!)

Outside of Kung Fu, I Love to:  Hike, bike, canoe, read, play Scrabble, and learn new things!  I have also been volunteering at an inner city school in Burnaby for the last 12 years and love what the children teach me.

Passion:  My passion is helping others to be the best that they can be.  I believe every single person has unique strengths and abilities, and what they bring to everyone around them is invaluable.

I will not be instructing this year, as I am attending UBC to complete my Bachelor of Education and attain my BC Teaching Certification. I’ll still be around doing lion dance, but will not be in kung fu or tai chi classes.
