Today we celebrate the birthday of 1st generation disciple, 3rd degree IBFDA and Richard Lee Black, TWKSF International referee Level A, and all around outstanding individual: Mr. McKay!
Having stayed passionately dedicated to both his teaching and his training, Mr. McKay has risen to the rank of 3rd degree black belt while holding down a full time job as well as a full teaching schedule at East West Kung Fu.
Students love working with him because of his combination of humor, positive energy, and intensity. He has developed quite a following in his classes with both the teen and adult students at our schools. His training partners know they can count on his best effort, which helps everyone. He is an important and admired figure at our East West schools!
Recently, Mr. McKay has both trained with the fighting team and competed in the USKSF International Championships in Baltimore, MD, and also went on to be a head referee at the most recent 2015 World Koushu Kung Fu Championships held in Mendoza, Argentina.
Mr. McKay, you are a great example of making the most of one’s time, and we are so glad to have you as part of our Bok Fu Do family. Here’s to another year of life and adventure with East West Kung Fu!
