He began to study martial arts at the young age of six.

He also learned Wing Chun, Dragon Style, Choi Li Fut, and Hung Gar from various famous masters in China. As he continued his training, he became stronger and healthier. It was at a very young age that Master Lau acquired his great passion for kung fu that grows in him till the day he passed away.

He started teaching martial arts shortly after learning at the age of 16, and got his certification in Chinese Medicine at the age of 18. Moving to Canada in 1986 with his family, kept a really low profile, until 1994 when the Calgary Hung Mun Athletic Club appointed him to teach martial art, this is when he started to get the respect and a name from all around town. Master Chi Fai Lau is a man of many words, his conversations often leads to martial arts, the way of life, and helping others.

His open mind and thirst for knowledge and self improvement has developed him into a famous martial art master all over the world. Master Lau has gained mastery of not only martial arts but in many aspects of his life.

Grand Master Chi Fai Lau was diagnosed with cancer in 2003 and battled for four years until passing away in August 17, 2007. But his teachings will always be in the heart of everyone. His students will carry his dream to spread his technique and philosophy of Pak Mei Hup Ging Do to the world.
