San Soo History
San Soo is considered, by many, to be the most sophisticated and complete form of martial art in existence today.
Inside Kung Fu Magazine refers to San Soo as "Legendary" and " Devastating".
San Soo is well known for its incredible power and efficiency in all ranges of combat. It is considered the original mixed martial art by being the best of the ancient Five Families (Cho, Li, Ho, Fut, and Hung) from which most all other arts are based.
Chin Siu Dek (Jimmy's real name) was taught by his Great Uncle Chin Siu Hung who was nicknamed Chin Neow Gee, which means "Crazy Devil." Hung was an extremely large man, 6'5" tall and weighing well over 320 pounds. Following in his grandfather's footsteps, Hung became a well-known fighter, teaching in his own San Soo school.
He was overlord for the entire province, which at that time, late 1800's and until 1941 was about the size of Orange County, CA. He had complete control over nearly every aspect of the lives of the people in the area. No one started a business, moved or made any other major decisions without consulting Hung.
Frank Woolsey was one of Jimmy Woo's earliest non-Asian students, and one of the best. Woolsey opened his first studio in 1963, in Downey, California and, then opened his second school in 1968.
At the peak of his Kung Fu business career, Woolsey had five studios open in the southern California area, and was looking at Arizona and Nevada markets as well. All five schools closed in 1975 for a number of different reasons, but the most pivotal, was the sudden loss of interest in Kung Fu by the public. Attendance and sales dropped dramatically, and the once thriving corporation collapsed.
Master Bill Hulsey is a 1st generation master taught by Grand Master Jimmy Woo who brought the martial art of Kung Fu San Soo to the United States from China. Master Bill was also a student of Frank Woolsey who is legendary for his motivation to turn ordinary people into street fighters. Master Bill Hulsey opened up his first studio in Bellflower in 1975. He has been training men, women and children ever since.
He is the President of the National Teachers Association of Kung Fu San Soo and to further propagate the art of Kung Fu San Soo he holds an annual seminar each summer at his studio in Bellflower, California.
