My sympathies to Carol and all the family, I was one of Michael {Ming Pen} and his Dad's {Mu Wha Li} first students of Tong Leong. It was a very important part of my life and it was Michaels good natured and patient prodding that imparted so much of that system to me. It has stood me well. Patient teacher and a good heart. He will be missed but not forgotten. Bill Chapman
