Sifu Shane Wielgomas
As a young child, Shane Wielgomas was always interested in martial arts.
Unfortunately, he was always too shy to go to a class.
It wasn't until Shane met Sigung Norman Smith that he finally decided to take lessons.
So Shane went to his first class and from that very first class, he fell in love.
Since then, Shane has trained every single day to become the best that he can be.
His constant determination and enthusiasm in every class has helped shape him to become the leader that he is today.
Before Shane was promoted, he was the assistant instructor for both of the children's classes and even helped teach the adult class.
He has become a very influential person in the school.
Shane hopes to one day open his own Kung Fu academy. He believes that "Kung fu has saved my life.
I was hanging out with the wrong crowd and thanks to Kung fu, I was able to leave those people.
It has truly made a difference in my life and I truly wish to help change the lives of others too."
Now, Shane is attending college and still training very hard.
He is admired and respected by his peers, as well as the family he has come to love in class.
