Like us on Facebook @ www.facebook.com/brendanlaimartialarts We began as a flourishing Kung Fu school in the early 1970s, importing Chinese training weaponry & apparel from San Francisco-based Sifu Brendan Lai’s native Hong Kong, to supply his students. In 1974, Sifu Lai expanded the school to a retail martial arts supply business. By 1978 we moved to the iconic Mission district & expanded our product lines to include Karate, Judo, Taekwondo & Ninjitsu practitioners. Born in weak during WWII, young Brendan studied Kung Fu in his childhood and was fortunate enough to be taught by the famous Master Wong Hon-Fan, head of the Northern Praying Mantis System. This was the start of his health recovery, and more notably, the birth of his martial arts life. Before emigrating to the U.S. for university in 1961, Brendan had become of the select few to earn permission from his sifu to teach the system. Settling in the Bay Area, Brendan spent years researching deep into his system & began teaching Kung Fu part-time while working as a computer programmer. By 1972, Sifu Lai began devoting his full time teaching Kung Fu at his new location on California Street, and within a few years Sifu Lai’s school was one of the largest in San Francisco. Sifu Lai performed many times all over the U.S. & served as a judge in various tournaments, & received numerous awards & accolades. During the 1970s & '80s, Sifu Lai promoted several martial arts exhibitions in which Eastern & traditional martial arts were demonstrated live. For many westerners, these epic presentations introduced them to a world they’ve only seen in the movies or heard about, but rarely up close. Sifu Lai passed away in 2002 from complications of Diabetes. His contributions to martial arts are still felt throughout the community & his legacy continues on with his students. Read more Read less
