Sifu Anthony

Sifu Anthony started training in Tai Kwon Do at the age of 14. He continued his martial arts training through his teen years in American Karate. Moving to Charlotte, NC to continue college and wanting to learn Kung Fu, in 1987, he humbly asked if he could become a student of Lai Tung Pai's Sifu Li Chi Keung and after many traditional rejections, Anthony was allowed to enter the Lai Tung Pai family.

He has been devoted to Lai Tung Pai style ever since, opening and running three kwoons prior to the Kong Hoi Kung Fu Association - Mint Hill location, formerly Mint Hill Kung Fu School, on the east side of Charlotte, NC for Master Li. In 1993, he was promoted to US Instructor and was added to the Lineage of Lai Tung Pai. He is one of the highest ranked practitioners of Lai Tung Pai, next to Master Li, in the US. He is also one of the first black sash students ever in the US and one of the first non-Chinese black sash students to ever be allowed to teach the Lai Tung Pai style. In addition, he opened the Kong Hoi Kung Fu Association - Kings Mountain in 2002 and taught the art of Lai Tung Pai there for many years. In 2013, his and Simo Shawna Stephenson's nutrition business boomed and they expanded to Troy, Ohio where he is the Sifu of the new Troy, Ohio Branch, Kong Hoi Kung Fu Association - Troy in historical Troy, Ohio just north of Dayton, Ohio.

Sifu Anthony has entered and won his share of 1st place awards as well as a 4th place weapons division award in an International Kung Fu Tournament in Baltimore, MD in 1989 while only a yellow sash practitioner of Lai Tung Pai.

In 2001, during the traditional tea ceremony in Charlotte, NC, Sifu Anthony was awarded, by Master Li Chi Keung, the status of US Disciple of Lai Tong Pai, 6th Generation outside the Sil Lum (Shaolin) Temple and was given the ranking Senior US Instructor. He was the elder instructor at the Kong Hoi Kung Fu Association - Mint Hill just east of Charlotte.

In June 2004, Sifu Anthony traveled to Hong Kong to study Lai Tung Pai in depth. There he received, by Grandmaster Kong Chui Hoi of Hong Kong, certification awarding him International Instructor level and since he is now also a direct student of Grandmaster Kong Hoi, he is also a 5th Generation Disciple. Sifu Anthony was presented this award by Si Gung Kong Hoi's wife as seen in the certification photos.

Sifu Anthony is also a Co-Founder and current President of the Carolinas Association of Chinese Martial Arts Association (CACMA). He has held various titles at the CACMA Regional Tournament throughout the years including Tournament Promoter, Tournament Director, Director and Tournament Committee Chair. He has also promoted and hosted his own tournament in Kings Mountain, NC the Sil Lum Mountain Invitational. He is also the publisher of the CACMA Scroll Newsletter published quarterly on their website.

He is also a member of the United States Kuoshu Federation and serves as a judge on their behalf each year at their annual tournament in Baltimore, MD. He is also certified to judge Lei Tai fighting by the USCKF and CACMA.

Sifu Anthony, in January of 2005, was asked to join the instructor group, by Shifu Steve Clark, at the Marine Base Camp LeJeune, NC, for the Force Protection Seminars instructing Marine and Navy personnel.

On July 30, 2005, Sifu Anthony received the honor of being inducted into the US Martial Arts Hall of Fame. Sifu Anthony was accompanied to Chicago, IL by his wife Shawna, past NC area inductee, CACMA VP ShiFu Steve Clark and his son.

In 2008, Sifu Anthony travelled back to Hong Kong and received further high level training from Si Gung Kong Hoi. When asked about this training, Sifu Anthony would only comment that; "It was an honor to learn the new material, however, I am not at liberty to discuss anything about the training per Si Gung's orders. I hope, one day, I can share it with one of my closed door disciples who proves himself or herself worthy to receive the training."
