Shi Xiong Lester is the Head Instructor of The Chinese Martial Arts and Health Centre Australia. Previous to moving to Australia, Shi Xiong Lester trained for many years under Si Fu Marco at the Chinese Martial Arts and Health Centre in Cape Town.
Coming from a background of electrical engineering, Shi Xiong Lester felt compelled to turn to teaching Kung Fu upon arriving in Australia because of his love for the system. Shi Xiong Lester continues to travel back to South Africa regularly to continue his personal training in the system under Si Fu Marco.
