Kwoon History


The journey to Kong Hoi Kung Fu Association - Troy was a long and rewarding journey. In October of 2002, Sifu Anthony Stephenson got married and moved to his wife's town of Kings Mountain just west of Charlotte, NC. This historical town is a beautiful and peaceful setting in which to learn Lai Tung Pai. Therefore, Sifu Anthony expanded the teachings of Lai Tung Pai there by forming Kong Hoi Kung Fu Association - Kings Mountain. In order to build a student following, Sifu Anthony taught in the park for many years prior to building the new kwoon. This is much like the Mint Hill school got started. Which brings us to the story of how we started out in Mint Hill.

Kong Hoi Kung Fu Association - Mint Hill, formally Mint Hill Kung Fu School, was founded in 1993 when Sifu Anthony Stephenson, then Si Hing Anthony, met with Master Li and decided that it was time to teach publicly again after the close of Sifu Li�s last kwoon. (Sifu Li had to move to Hickory to work temporarily) Master Li instructed Si Hing Anthony to seek the help of his Si Di, Chris Facente. Running the school would require more than just one individual since all had family and work obligations. The three met on the issue and decided to open the school in Mint Hill and make this the root of Lai Tung Pai in the US. Prior to moving to Mint Hill, the three had been training privately in a small house in Charlotte with a few other students. Mint Hill is a quiet town boarding on the east side of the city of Charlotte. They first opened the school in a large house in the center of town, but this became impractical due to some space constraints. In 1994, a local Karate school was kind enough to lend them space for 11 months while we searched for a new location.

They found a suitable location at 7706 Matthews-Mint Hill Road, just down the street from the house they had once rented. This location provided the school with the capability to grow the student base large enough to be recognized as a serious kung fu training facility in the city's martial arts business circles, while keeping with the traditions of the Chinese martial arts. This is where the roots of Kong Hoi Kung Fu Association - Mint Hill and Lai Tung Pai (Poon Kuen) were beginning to firmly embed themselves in the Charlotte area.

In July of 1997 and in 2004, the School moved to newer, more contemporary location with better Fung Shui. Fung Shui is the Chinese art of placement. If business is to be successful, there are certain rules of Fung Shui to be followed. Master Li is an expert in Fung Shui so he helped us pick a location by traditional means. Now, the Mint Hill location has come full circle and is in the same building as the 1995 location. This is the current location of Kong Hoi Kung Fu Association - Mint Hill and will remain the world's central location for the teaching of Lai Tung Pai (Poon Kuen). It is Sifu Li's, Sifu Anthony and Sifu Chris's mission and obligation to continue the Lineage of Lai Tung Pai (Poon Kuen) as so many have done before them. They are very fortunate to have such responsibility.

Kong Hoi Kung Fu Association - Mint Hill has allowed other styles to be taught within its walls. Kong Hoi Kung Fu Association - Mint Hill is fortunate to have met individuals in Wing Chun, Hsing I and Tai Chi that bring these wonderful styles to the people of Charlotte and the surrounding areas. Each individual was certified in his perspective art and each of these arts complimented each other as well as Lai Tung Pai (Poon Kuen). The Tong (brotherhood) of kung fu and the Chin Wu like atmosphere, long a dream of Master Li, Sifu Anthony and Sifu Chris are now present within the walls of the both Kwoons.

So, this is how our expansion came to be in Kings Mountain, NC. In 2013, Sifu Anthony and Simo Shawna moved to the Dayton, Ohio area to expand their nutrition business. Sifu Anthony borrowed space from their nutrition club for a couple of years and then in Decempber of 2015, he opened up the 1800 square feet state of the art facility in Troy. Sifu Anthony teaches private classes and group classes at the new kwoon in Troy, Ohio. Please feel free to contact Sifu Anthony at (704) 502-5404 or email him at sifuanthony@konghoikungfu.com.
