Ever since Grand master Chan Sau Chung migrated to Canada, he has resided in the City of Richmond, which is a part of Greater Vancouver. He continues to teach 'Tai Shing Pek Kwar' Kung Fu. Now his son Chan Kai Leung has taken over his job and continues the family tradition of spreading Kung Fu skill in North America, namely Vancouver, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

If a person is from Hong Kong, South Asia or even Taiwan, they should know about Grand Master Chan, because he has taught students all over the world. He also sets a record in four consecutive years. His students won all four Asia International Full Contact Fights Championships. This record is still an utmost phenomenon in the fighting competition that members from one team can take the championship in that many years. These records have shown that Grand Master Chan has really paid attention to teaching his young followers how they should utilize 'Tai Shing Pek Kwar' to shine on the stage where only the best can survive.

Grand Master Chan Sau Chung was born in Hong Kong, when he was young, people took advantage of him because of his smaller size. So at the age of 12 he decided to protect himself by learning the best Kung Fu technique available. He found the Great Grand Master Gan Dak Hoi in Hong Kong who was teaching 'Tai Shing Pek Kwar' at the time. Grand Master Chan's hard working attitude and intelligence touched Great Grand Gan's heart. Therefore, he taught Grand Master Chan all his Kung Fu skill. People started to call Grand Master Chan the 'Monkey King' because he could imitate a monkey very well with his Kung Fu technique.

At the age of 20, Grand Master Chan started a school to teach 'Tai Shing Pek Kwar' Kung Fu skill, many of his first generation students have also opened school to teach 'Tai Shing Pek Kwar'. By the time he left Hong Kong, there were tens of thousands of students and the number is still growing. He led his class to attend Fighting Competition in Hawaii, Taiwan, Malaysia, Vietnam etc. Every time they showed a good record that eyebrows were raised. In 1979, Grand Master Chan and his team went to Malaysia and raised $360,000 dollars for a Chinese Charity Association to pay off their debts. Grand Master Chan had won the people's heart and was praised all over the region.

In 2004, Grand Master Chan organized the World Organization of Wushu Kung Fu Masters in North America. His vision is to unite all clans and Kung Fu groups together under one roof. This will unify the classifications and contribution of Kung Fu masters bonding the organizations together. The Kung Fu communities can grow and flourish by recognizing each other in harmony. The first annual Gala of Masters was held in Vancouver, hundreds of people attended the function. The second Gala of Masters was held in Hong Kong and the third Gala was held in October 2007 in Seattle. Grand Master Chan is looking forward to the fourth Gala of Masters in China soon. He indicated that Kung Fu is for good health but not for assaulting others. It is a way to help people sustain a healthy lifestyle especially in the latter part of their lives.
