SHIFU ALAN M TINNION
MASTER OF TRADITIONAL CHINESE FIGHTING ARTS
Dato Chee Kim Thong
I would like to pay my most sincere and deep respect to Master Yap Cheng Hai - master in his own right - First and most trusted of Inner Chamber Disciples of Grandmaster Chee, in gratitude for his guidance, impartiality, and friendship over many years.
I would also like to pay especial and deep respect to the memory of Mr Tan Kay Ngee, Grandmaster Chee’s dear friend, who on numerous occasions over the course of many years, was instrumental (due to his excellent Hokkien-Chinese to English translation skills) in enabling detailed verbal transmission of the methods, principles, and applications of the highest level Gong Fu systems, to be taught to me directly by my beloved Master.
In a different sense, I wish to offer my deepest thanks to the family of Grandmaster Chee, for the many occasions when they offered me the hospitality and genuine warmth of their family home, where I was treated without exception in a most kind and considerate way, as part of the family.
