SIFU PETREE

With 25 years of Wing Chun training, Sifu Jonathan Petree is one of the most tenured Wing Chun students of Sifu Bill Graves in the world. Sifus Petree and Graves have been training together since the early 1990's.  Before Sifu Bill Graves stopped teaching publicly, Jonathan was his head student and assistant instructor (siHing) in all classes, including public and private lessons in his Atlantic Beach, Florida school.  Since then, Sifu Jonathan Petree has become a full instructor, and beyond, reaching the height of 9th level β€œMan of Arrival.”  It has been said, "If you want to learn more, learn more deeply". It is this desire to learn the infinite depths of all aspects of Wing Chun, and then to preserve, and pass down this legacy to the next generation, that motivates Sifu Petree. As such, Sifu Jonathan Petree regularly trains with Wing Chun Sifu Karl Godwin (Bill Graves' sifu) in his school in central Florida as a private student. "Sifu Godwin consistently takes me to new depths of understanding, which has increased my aptitude as a wing chun practitioner, and instructor tremendously"! Although initially introduced to the training of Sifu Godwin via group classes in the mid-1990's, Sifu Petree transitioned to his consistent regimen of private lessons 9 years ago. As a lifelong learner, Sifu Petree will never rest on his laurels, and always pursue growth, personal development, refinement, and a deeper understanding of the Wing Chun system, while passing on to his students the legacy of the Ip Man lineage.
