Philip Ng was born in Hong Kong to Sam Ng and Frances Ng. He immigrated to America with his family at the age of seven. He spent the majority of his youth in Chicago, Illinois before returning to Hong Kong to pursue a career in acting and martial arts choreography in film and television.
Upon arriving in the United States Ng began his study of the martial arts with Hung Gar, taught by his uncle and Choy Lay Fut, taught by his father. At the age of 13, Philip Ng began his study of Wing Chun Gung Fu with his uncle, Alan Ang, and Taekwondo with Master Woon S. Shim. To further his education in the field of Wing Chun Gung Fu, Ng traveled to Hong Kong during the summers and became the student of the Sifu Wong Shun Leung, with whom he trained until Wong's passing early in 1997. Before his death, Sifu Wong Shun Leung encouraged Ng to begin instructing students in America to become training partners.
Ng founded the Illini Wing Chun Association at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Ng spent five years presiding over the association as both the head instructor and club president. Time spent at the University had not only awarded Philip a master's degree in education, but training and sparring with other martial stylists gained him the knowledge and applicable skill in the arts of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Western Boxing, Muay Thai and Eskrima. Ng holds a bachelor's degree in Graphic design and a master's degree in Education.
Acting and choreography
In addition to acting, Ng is also an accomplished fight choreographer and action director. He taught school for a year and decided to fulfill his dream of performing in a martial arts film. He quit his job and headed to Hong Kong to try to enter the business. He was introduced to Chin Kar Lok, an action director who needed someone with Ng's background to train the actors and became the assistant martial arts choreographer on a film. Ng worked his way up as a stuntman and featured actor until he achieved his goal of starring in a 2014 martial arts film, Once Upon a Time in Shanghai. He was selected to play Bruce Lee in the 2016 biographical film, Birth of the Dragon which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival on September 13, 2016.
