1ª part of the hangout about Chinese Martial Arts Tradition.
In this special Hangout on the Chinese tradition of Martial Arts, we received a special guest: Master Nino Bernardo.
Nino Bernardo, a musician and actor by trade, was one of a handful of students to learn the whole system of Ving Tsun (Wing Chun) Kung Fu from legendary martial artist Wong Shun Leung in Hong Kong in the 1970s.
In 1984, Nino set up an infamous word-of-mouth kung fu school in London called the Basement, where he developed a reputation as one of Europe's most skilful and influential Ving Tsun (Wing Chun) Kung Fu teachers. He was also Wong Shun Leung's senior UK representative until the untimely death of his teacher in 1997.
Nino has lived in Ibiza since 2000, where his set up Europe's first alternative school Kung fu School. His emphasis in recent years has been on the importance of learning Ving Tsun (Wing Chun) Kung Fu for health and personal development.
