Sifu Sergio started Wing Chun in 1987, studying under many Sifu in the Wang Kiu and Leung Ting System. He began the first of his yearly research trip to Hong Kong and Mainland China in 1997. Soon realising that a few annual trips to Hong Kong and Mainland China were not enough; he moved permanently to Hong Kong in 2007 to study the arts more in-depth.
Today, he is the founder of the IWKA (Internal Wisdom and Knowledge Association), co-founder of the IWCWCA (International Weng Chun and White Crane association) based in Hong Kong and founder of the “Six Core Elements program” and the unique “3 Pillars Yang Taijiquan” curriculum. As a permanent resident of the former British Crown Colony of Hong Kong, he enjoys regular contact with “the last generation of real lineage holders of authentic Chinese Kung Fu”.
From 2022 onwards, Sifu Sergio Pascal Iadarola, in collaboration with his master students Sifu Michael Rainer, Sifu Peter Caro and colleagues who run their own Wing Chun and Internal Arts associations like Sifu Sunny So (So Chi Kong), Sifu Kleber Battaglia, Sifu Yuri Morelli, will lend their expertise to all Wing Chun associations or individual schools that want to take a serious approach to upgrade their knowledge and skillset.
