Whom It May Concern:
I, William R. Lee, the son of the late Sifu Lee Wah Yook, am acknowledging
that Mark Joseph Bram was chosen by my father to be his first
and only student to carry on his unique style.
studied under my father for eleven years. He also taught Mark
a certain secret technique, that was only to be taught to his
son or the few chosen to carry on his art. These techniques were
instructed not to be shown to the general public.
was first being considered as a student, his tenacity was tested
by exercises thought too difficult to stand. But to my father's
surprise, he passed the tests. My father was pleased at how fast
Mark learned and how hard he tried. My father was also concerned
about the safety of Mark and anyone who he would train with. He
was not aware of how much power he possessed or how to use it.
After many years of training, Mark has learned how to use and
control the power properly; not only for self defense, but the
power to heal as well, which he is still continuously studying.
The core of
the system is based on Yeung (Yang) Style Tai Chi Chaun. My father
started teaching Mark Sil Lum (Shaolin) and Fu Hok Tai Hei Morn
until Mark developed Hypoglycemia, at that point my father then
turned his attention to teaching him Tai Chi. As Mark became proficient,
my father started adding various techniques and training exercises
from the various styles that my father had learned, to form a
cohesive fighting style based on Mark's strengths.
