      Sifu Gregg Hartnett

      Sifu Gregg Hartnett has been practicing the Shaolin Arts as taught in the Southern temple since 2005 under Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit of the Shaolin Wahnam Institute. Having started with Kickboxing he soon found the Wahnam Institute and discovered Chi and internal force and wanted to further his knowledge of this amazing art. He realized that one can incorporate Kung Fu into one's daily life in every aspect. Having travelled to Malaysia regularly and many other countries to study with Sifu Wong, he became an assistant instructor in 2007. In 2009 he was honoured to become a certified instructor in the Shaolin Wahnam Institute. Gregg has also studied in Europe with Sifu Kai Uwe Jettandt from Frankfurt. Having lived in Australia and New Zealand for many years Gregg has taught Kung Fu to many students internationally and also studied other martial arts such as MMA and Muai Thai Boxing from Master Christopher Ingrati in Australia. Having a great interest in three treasures of Shaolin (Kung Fu, Chi Kung, and Zen) he has begun to further his knowledge by studying Traditional Chinese Medicine in the Irish College of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
