Hi, I am a martial arts enthusiast, practitioner and teacher who received his teacher’s blessing to teach and instruct the Art of Wing Chun and its philosophy. Martial art helps me achieve physical, emotional and spiritual balance. I am a professional engineer who really appreciate the cleverness, and science of this beautiful art. Its philosophy can, not only apply to Self defense, but to life, emotional and spiritual management.
What is your background in the martial art world?
I started martial arts at the age of 8. Judo was my first discipline. It taught me balance, how to fall and how to stay on my feet (very useful too). My Judo Sunsei passed away years back…( May he rest in peace)… He was a 4th Dan at the time ( Sunsei Ahmed kisrane – SONATIBA Club in Algiers).
Three years later in the same Club, Shotokan Karate was introduced. I studied it with passion for 8 years under a current 8th Dan Algerian Sunsei Abdelkader Adjal. Shotokan reinforced my stance and punching power. I moved then to the UK where I carried out my training by myself until I stumbled across a Wing Chun school that turned out to be the best school I ever came across ” The Simon Lau Centre”. I Never looked back since. I feel that my teacher is an inspiration, not only a guide in this beautiful martial art but also a spiritual one. I hope to reach in the near future a very high standard to honor my past teachers.

In my opinion, Yacine is the consummate martial arts teacher.
He has the ability to reach everyone where they are, physically, mentally, and emotionally, and help them move beyond their limitations.
He is always approachable and holds firmly to the conviction that if it is worth doing, it is worth doing it right which, to me, is a sign of his lessons worth.
Yacine abides by the rule that teaching someone both takes a person who is as willing to give as much of themselves as they ask from their students. With that, he has been instrumental in providing the instruction and support for me to grow as a person and martial artist.
After participating in one class, I was able to recognize an efficiency and experience a power that I have not felt in many years of Wing Chun study. This not only reinforced the quality of his tuition, but also underlined his years of genuine training and application.
Importantly, the training is geared to the realities of physical confrontation and I am convinced that Bayou Wing Chun will “work” if and when it is ever needed.
Yacine is extraordinarily skilled, professional and passionate about Kung Fu but and takes a keen interest in all of his students. Taking such an interest signals a deep commitment to the martial art, a good moral code and his pupils.
As a result he has become to all that know him as someone that can be relied on, no matter what the situation.
