Instructor


bb tieDustan Carroll, the Owner and Chief Instructor of The Wing Chun Boxing Academy™ LLC, is a practitioner and instructor of Wing Chun in the Ip Man/Duncan Leung lineage.

He is a professional educator with nearly two decades of classroom experience.

Mr. Carroll started instructing students in Wing Chun in 2004 and has proudly been instructing students in the Rocket City for over a decade now.

While serving in the U.S. Army in 1994 in Norfolk, VA he was introduced to Wing Chun by SiFu David W. Meadows, a disciple of SiFu Duncan Leung.

After leaving the Norfolk, VA. area and the U.S. Army, he trained in Jeet Kune Do to instructor status and trained in multiple arts such as, but not limited to, Aiki-Jitsu, Combat Knife Fighting, Muay Thai, Kali/Arnis, Tai Chi Chuan and Kempo.

After receiving a degree in Education from the University of North Alabama, Mr. Carroll moved to Houston, Texas, to begin his career in education. In his spare time, he trained in multiple Kung Fu styles such as Northern Shaolin, Choy Lay Fut, Wing Chun, and Tai Chi becoming an assistant instructor at the school, but still could not find what he had seen and experienced in Norfolk. Using SiFu Leung’s website, he contacted a formal disciple of SiFu Dave Meadows and former student of Duncan Leung. He began training as a private student and “formal disciple” shortly thereafter.

In 2006, after relocating to the Rocket City, Huntsville, AL, he established a new school under the name of The Wing Chun Boxing Academy™. He has given instruction to a wide variety of students who have had varying degrees of knowledge in many different martial arts (including competitive, military, police and self defense based arts and styles).

Mr. Carroll was recognized for his understanding of the Wing Chun system by his first instructor in the Duncan Leung Family Style in 2006. Mr. Carroll and his first instructor had a personal falling out in 2011 and no longer associate with one another. Mr. Carroll has since continued his education in the Duncan Leung Family Style of Wing Chun with other more senior members of the family as his mentors. He considers himself a life long learner and promotes others to do the same.

He has also received several honors from multiple professionals and organizations within the martial arts community to include Sifu Of The Year in 2012,  induction into multiple Martial Arts Hall of Fames, even the prestigious Masters Hall of Fame and he has been featured in Wing Chun Illustrated. However, he most values all that he has learned and is learning from his friends and mentors in the arts.
