About Simo Jacqueline Chu | Owner | Assistant Instructor
I am Jacqueline, the owner of Sarasota Wing Chun & Tai Chi Center. I was born and raised in Hong Kong. I came to the US in 2007 and finally settled down at Sarasota, a wonderful place that has everything but a real Kung Fu school. Therefore, Sifu Brian Taylor, my husband, and I decided to open our school to share the authentic but also up to date martial arts skills to the community. You do not have to buy an airplane ticket to Hong Kong or China anymore.
