Sifu Jim Sturdivant - Instructor

Sifu Jim has been training under Sifu Ed since 1999.

I've trained in martial arts since I was 16, in various styles. I have been training with Sifu Ed since 1999. When I first met Sifu Ed I was struck by how very different Wing Chun was from any other style I had taken before. The movement and philosophy are unique and captured my attention right away. It looked more simple than some of the complicated styles I had taken before. What I discovered was a subtle complexity within the style with many life lessons, not just kung fu lessons.

Wing Chun is great for people of nearly any fitness level. Dedication, patience and persistence are the keys to success, here.

I'm teaching the Youth Wing Chun class at the Millcreek Martial Arts Center. Youths between 14 and 18 are welcome to take their first steps along the Path of Wing Chun with me. My goal is to help youths find their confidence in themselves, to share my deep love of this style, and encourage their personal growth through the process of hard work, teamwork and learning.

Thank you,
Sifu Jim
