Kenneth Chung (鐘萬年 / Chung Maan-Nin) is a teacher of Wing Chun Kung Fu. He is the premiere student of the late Leung Sheung, one of the top 3 students of Yip Man. His wing chun emphasizes structure and relaxation over speed and strength, resulting in a soft yet powerful force.[1][2]

In 2003, the City of Cupertino, California proclaimed August 23 to be Kenneth Chung Day in acknowledgment of his service to the Cupertino and San Francisco Bay Area communities and to the thousands of Wing Chun students he has taught throughout the United States.[3]

He currently teaches at the Stanford University Wing Chun Club. He also conducts seminars worldwide. On September 1, 2011 Sifu Chung was awarded the 7th World Ving Tsun 2011 Hall of Fame, Sifu of the Year Award from the World Ving Tsun Athletic Association.
