Here’s the first part of the interview! Read the rest here.
Not being Chinese has not stopped Iranian born Nima King creating Hong Kong’s largest Kung Fu school.
What’s your story?
I was born in Iran, and my family moved to Australia when I was 9. I then moved to Hong Kong solo at the age of 21. Since then, Hong Kong has become my home in which I became a happily married man and am now a proud father of 2 little munchkins. In 2008, I established Mindful Wing Chun which has now become the biggest Kung Fu school in Hong Kong (right in the heart of Central), which has helped transform the lives of many Hong Kong residents of all ages through the unique art of Wing Chun Kung Fu.
What excites you most about your industry?
The fact that we are able to help so many people not only improve on a physical level but also on a mental and emotional level too. And now that the world has opened it’s arms to Mindful practices to improve health and well-being, I feel that there is a lot more room for exposure not just in Hong Kong but on a global scale. In fact, our Online Academy has been much more successful than our physical school.
