Comments from a few of GrandMaster Lee’s workshop attendees…
I’ve known about Master Eric Lee ever since I was 9 years old, when I first became a Martial Arts practitioner back in Bulgaria. He was and still is a living legend. It was my dream to meet him and to learn from him. But back then that was more like one of those dreams that aren’t realistically expected to come true. I was 20 years old, when I came to the US as a part of the Bulgarian National Team. I bought a ticket for the Dragonfest with almost last money I had. Than and there my dream came true. I met the legend-Eric Lee. He actually looked at one of my photos and complimented my jumping kick. I couldn’t sleep that night. And as if that wasn’t enough, later I got to know Eric Lee’s excellence not only as a Master, but as a human. A man with a big heart, generous, genuine. Always a father figure to his students. I was invited to attend his Action Seminar Workshop on Oct. 5th and 6th of this year. I’ve known Eric Lee as one of the best form performers who’ve ever lived. I’ve also known about his Chi Kung, Meditation and heeling techniques. But what blew my mind was the self defense system that he demonstrated and especially the anti-grappling techniques. Now I’m someone who knows self-defense. I even teach it. I’ve done TV-shows for BNT about self defense. Those who knew me back in Bulgaria can testify- I had my share of street fights too. So I’m always very critical when it comes to self-defense thinking “I know the real deal…….I know how it’s done and how it feels too…..” But the explosive power, the simplicity and the efficacy that I saw Master Lee demonstrate, you have to see it and to feel it to believe it. I was fascinated by what I saw, so I kept talking about it… I had to bring my friend the next day. Master Lee, Thank You for giving us Gold!
All my respect and well wishing:

I attended the seminar/workshop with Master Eric Lee on October 5th and 6th of this year in Inglewood, CA. We started off with some of the Chi Kung healing techniques, followed up with dynamic self-defense, and ended with the Chinese Katas( the Shaolin forms). I thought both days were very informative. From my understanding, their are five seminar/workshops in the seriesall unique in their own ways. I feel that Master Lee did an excellent job throughout the entire two day seminar/workshop, and would recommend the series to all, underbelts, black belts, and masters I am looking forward to attending all of his works
Yours in the Arts,

To all martial artist,
I have attended many seminars for Master Eric Lee, but this workshop has topped the charts. I recommend Master Eric Lee’s five level Certification workshop to all Black Belts. His Techniques, forms and Chi-gung are the best I have ever experienced.
My instructor Professor Gary Forbach ( 8th degree Kajukenbo black belt ) recommends that all of his Black belts continue their training with Master Eric Lee.
Many thanks to Master Eric Lee and his instructors!!

I have been in the Martial arts since 1978. I was 14yrs of age, I started in jujitsu then moved around a bit until I found what I was looking for. during the time I was 14 to 26 I had trained in different styles of the arts, like tang soo do, chung moo quan, Praying mantis kung fu, shito ryu, shotokan Karate, was in and out of schools until I turned 26yrs of age, then I found a school called Moo Yea Do under Master Tiger Yang, trained for two yrs and became a black belt, then I left the school and joined Tea Kwon Do and was hired to teach which I had done for 6 months. .Then in 1994 I joined Hwa Rang Do which I trained in for 8 yrs in and out: I became a brown belt In Hwa Rang Do, then I left. Now I am training with Master Eric Lee In Kung Fu. I had fun learning the techniques and the form, It was a work-out for 8 hrs a day, I enjoyed the atmosphere, It was great training with all the black belts that were there, and found some new friends, I also like the long day work out practicing the techniques and the form, and the self defense was great I learned that you don’t have to move that much to defend yourself, everything was a very good experience for me, by me learning a lot, Master Lee’s teaching method is very excellent, when he teaches you can understand every technical and what they stand for, I liked the seminar because it was educational In learning the arts, and no one represented themselves to be better then the other. We were all equal in the training. What I liked about the workshop, I felt that I had learned a lot and the techniques were explained very well, The explanations were precise, they were explained in a manner that you would understand and he explained what they were used for and how they were used, he made them very easy to understand and if you had questions they were answered, also there was information given out along with videos and written information, master Lee has opened my eyes and helped me be open minded about training, Its great for cross trainers.
I would recommend that many people who are into the Martial Arts go to Master Lee’s seminar, It would be a educational experience, His seminars are very helpful in learning to defend yourself in any situation, I would recommend it to any one that wants to further the knowledge.
Thank You for the training experience.

Dear Master Sifu Eric Lee,
I just wanted to thank you and commend you for your 2 day seminar of which I attended this October 5 and 6 2002, it was information packed and I came away from it feeling stronger and having actually learned a lot more than I had known or expected. I would with out any doubts, recommend this seminar to people who are truly interested in Martial Arts and those interested in improving their knowledge base of strength and understanding as well as practical application of self defense and offense strategies. I have participated in MartialArts for more than 2 decades, Currently I am a Personal Trainer at Bally’s Hollywood yet my training has been quite eclectic. Here is a partial list of my experience, I have worked as an Armed Civil Police Guard in Israel on active patrol 6 months, I have lived in China for 2 and a half years, and I have been in a Jackie Chan Film shot in Hong Kong I have fought in Southern Florida, Tournament Style and learned Fred Valari Style for several years. I have attended seminars by Superfoot, Red Berets and 12th Dan Master Ishin-Ryu and many more, I had been a member of the Green Dragon Society of Chicago as well I have studied under Master Sifu Go of Championship Martial Arts Academy Chicago and formerly of the Shaolin Temple China, I can say without hesitation, the accumulation of everything I have learned is put into focus with help from Master Sifu Eric Lee.( I still have a lot more to learn please!) I will definitely be attending every seminar I will be able too with Master Sifu Eric Lee and I recommend the seminars to novice and expert alike.
Thank you Master Sifu Eric Lee,
Thank you, Thank you, Thank You!!!!!!
All the best, Health and Happiness,
Sincerely and, Most Gratefully Yours,
