Michael Harkess - Instructor, Unique Solutions Street Self Protection Program: 

During his late teens and early 20's, Michael's martial arts knowledge and experience extended to Boxing, Jiu-Jitsu and Karate. Later in life, he developed an intense interest in the many different styles of Kung Fu, both external and internal.

In 1992, Michael graduated as an Instructor, in the style Ging Mo Kune, at the Malcolm Sue Kung Fu School (MSKFS). In the same year, he was also inducted into the Yup Sut Da Gee and became a member of the school's elders with the title Say Si-Hing.
