Kung Fu Master, savvy politician, successful restaurateur, social rights activist, devoted teacher and trainer - these accolades partially describe the complex character of Grand Master Henry Sue, the author of Philosophy of a Fighter - A Life of Learning.
In 1957, Henry Sue migrated to Australia from Canton as an 11-year-old. At just 14, he began his martial arts training. One of the original Kung Fu pioneers in Australia, Henry Sue has successfully used martial arts to build connections between cultures and people. For more than 26 years, his positive political and community networks have been closely associated with his Kung Fu career.
Despite the setbacks of his early days, both in China and in Australia, Henry Sue viewed these challenges as lessons to learn by - not as obstacles to living.
Henry Sue is recognised as a fifth-generation disciple of Grand Master Ip Shui and has been awarded the highest degree in Kunq Fu in the Western world.
He has devoted more than 58 years of his life to training and developing martial arts to its pinnacle in Australia. With the blessings of his teacher, Henry Sue developed a new, more cohesive and comprehensive training system for Kung Fu.
Through Henry Sue's unique and wise perspective of life, his students have grasped the real meaning of Kunq Fu - self-discipline, self-respect and, above all, respect for others.
