William Cheung Interview: Part 2

I know I was supposed to retire from radio, but I can't seem to say no when Maragret Nunn asks me to come on air to anchor the Combat Sports Show on 91.3 SportFM - particularly when it is to introduce Part 2 of an interview I conducted with William Cheung.

So here is the radio show from 13 September 2009:

Part of the show also involved interviewing GM Cheung's Perth representative, Peter Guy.

Dan interviews Grandmaster William Cheung

Despite his announced "retirement" from radio, Dan agreed to a special "comeback" in order to interview reknowned wing chun teacher Grandmaster William Cheung. The interview was recorded today but will be broadcast over 2 separate Sundays - 6 September and 13 September 2009.

Grandmaster Cheung spoke about the origins of wing chun, its technical base and its similarities to, and differences from, other arts.

He also reminisced about his early years with his teacher, the legendary Yip Man and his relationship with the late Bruce Lee.

The shows will be broadcast on the above days on SportFM 91.3 from 6:00 pm. The podcasts will be available on the Thursday following each show.

Grandmaster Cheung is in Perth for a series of seminars, including 2 public ones on 5 and 6 September 2009.
