Tom Donnellan

Instructor Chelmsford South

I have been training in Wing Chun Kung Fu for eleven years, starting my learning when I was at school.  I began my training with Sifu Richard Sugden at Meridian Rayleigh and am extremely proud to now be opening my own branch in Chelmsford, passing on my knowledge of this fantastic martial art to children.

Learning Wing Chun has been an amazing experience that has really improved many areas of my life.  Under the expert tuition of Meridian Kung Fu, my art has developed significantly, as well as also developing confidence, mental wellbeing, resilience and focus.

Since leaving university, where I studied Primary Education and Music, I have been a teacher at a primary school in Essex.  Working professionally with children has been invaluable in ensuring that all children’s needs are supported in my Wing Chun teaching.  Furthermore, this knowledge and experience allows me to get the best out of each and every child, in order to develop their martial art skills, self-confidence and love of learning and training.

The highlights of my martial arts journey include achieving my black sash in 2016, as well as completing my Instructor’s Course with Meridian HQ.  Seeing the progress and enjoyment made by all the children studying Wing Chun Kung Fu that I have coached during this time is extremely pleasing and I am now ready for the next exciting chapter – opening my own branch and teaching children Wing Chun.
