Sifu Ron Kammerer
Sifu Jimmie McNeal
Jimmie McNeal is a retired Marine of 21 years. His interest in martial arts was inspired at age 11, by his uncle, also a Marine, returning from duty in Vietnam. During his tenure in the Marine Corps, he had the privilege to train extensively under Sifu Douglas Wong, Sepulveda, CA (Wing Chun), Grandmaster Parker Linekin, San Diego, CA (Ed Parker Kenpo and Wing Chun), and Sifu Steve L Johnson, Albuquerque, NM (Jun Fan and Wing Chun).
After retiring from the Marine Corps, Jimmie moved from San Diego, CA to Boulder, CO where he began studying with the late Sifu Mann and Sifu Switzer. Outside of Wing Chun, Jimmie is a certified Pekiti Tirsia Kali Instructor currently studying under Mataas na Guro Stephen Joffe in Boulder, CO. Jimmie is also studying Soaring Crane Qigong. Since the inception of his studies, Jimmie’s motto has always been “flow as water, strike as a cobra.”
Jimmie was accepted as Sifu Phil Switzer’s disciple and granted the title of Sifu in a ceremony on February 24th, 2008.
Sifu Tim Brown
Tim has always had an interest in Kung Fu and the martial arts, but it wasn’t until he turned 30 that he decided to finally look for a school and seriously train. In 2004, upon meeting Sifu Mann and Sifu Switzer, and the rest of the members of the Colorado School of Wing Chun, he knew that he had found what he was looking for. There are many things that he has learned since he started his journey in Wing Chun, yet there are countless others that he expects will take a lifetime to master.
Sifu Jim Knepley
Jim has been training on and off for most of his life. He trained in Taekwondo as a teenager, and began training seriously as an adult with Yuan-Tien-Hseuh Kung Fu, Gow-Ren-Lu Kempo, and now Wing Chun Kung Fu. Jim appreciates the depth of knowledge and details in the martial arts, and particularly admires the level of dedication and skill present in this lineage.
