In Memory of
Steve Alsup, Sifu
July 21, 1954 — March 19, 2019
Mr. Steve Alsup began his martial arts training in the late 1960s. He trained with many prominent teachers, but the most significant influence on his art was Mr. Christopher Casey. He studied Mr Casey’s methods of Chinese Boxing, Fukien White Crane, Wing Chun, Wa Lu, Tai Chi, Hsing-I, Pa Kua, SASG, and Chin Na. Mr. Aslup was fortunate to be one of the few indoor students of Mr. Casey which enabled him to learn Mr. Casey’s personal method of Internal Kung Fu, called Kai Sai Kung Fu which includes Iron Shirt, Qigong, Mind Training and esoteric methods.
Mr. Alsup’s early training included Okinawan Karate, Judo, and Shaolin Kung Fu. He trained with Daniel K. Pai and trained in Pai Lum Kung Fu, Northern and Southern Shaolin, Chinese Kempo, and Chinese Boxing. Mr. Alsup also learned Pai Te Lung, a method reserved for indoor students. Throughout his years of training, Mr. Alsup studied with many other martial arts masters including Wally Jay, Bill Louie, Tao Ping Siang, and Chen Xiao Wang.
