"If you're not fighting with passion and intent, you're not fighting - Ray Lau"
Ray Lau joined the Bankeside Schoole of Defense in the year 1999 already with a background in western and eastern martial arts. With his knowledge and expertise, Ray became well involved with the Bankeside Schoole of Defense, achieving the rank of Free Scholar in 2006, assisting with teaching, development of curriculum and adminstration of the school including the creation of the current school logo. In 2007 he was diagnosed with lymphatic cancer and moved to Hong Kong to live with his family and to seek other possible treatments. Ray Lau finally succumbed to the disease on April 5th 2009 after a long and vigorous battle.
Ray was an inspiration to our school. His humor and knowledge is very much missed at Bankeside. Always an honourable, intelligent and extremely capable man. We are proud to call him "Bankeside Free Scholar".
