Quentin Chong is a master of martial
arts. His record of 19 fights (18 wins by knock-out & 1 loss)
has made him one of the most devastating fighters in the world
today. "Time waits for no one" is the credo by which he lives and
teaches. It is testimony to his personal and martial arts
success. However, the road to the top has been a difficult one.
This is Quentin Chong's life story. It is the journey of the
Quentin Chong was born in Botswana, Gaborone and raised in Cape Town. As a schoolboy, he was chosen last for sports and ridiculed by his peers. Life for the young Chong was difficult. He grew up in a racially segregated country amidst violence and turmoil. This was an important experience in his life. It led him to defy mediocrity through studying the martial arts. As a young man, Quentin went to Hong Kong. He trained Kung Fu under Masters Shang Yu Xiang, Liang Dong Sheng and Samuel Kwok. His teachers were the most decorated Kung Fu practitioners in the world. They instructed the Chinese Military and were Kung Fu champions in their respective disciplines. Consequently, Chong learned from the best and quickly became one of the rising talents in Kung Fu. He achieved recognition throughout the world and became a Kung Fu master (Sifu). Quentin Chong mastered in Wingchun, Yang form Tai Chi, Kamla/Chinna and Sanda/Sanshou.
With his newfound talent, Quentin became a prominent figure in South Africa, and was well known in the 'streets and night club world' for his fighting ability. This led to him to acquiring the name 'DRAGON'. The name was given to him by the street kids that he taught. There is great irony in Chong's title. In Western culture, a dragon is the symbol of strength and ferocity. However, in Eastern tradition, the dragon is a symbol of humility and compassion. Its strength and hidden powers is a hidden quality and it is for this reason that the dragon is the most dominant entity in Chinese culture. Chong acquired this title because westerners saw him fight with tremendous strength and power. However, they fail to realise, that he fought on the streets to defend street children and people of the streets. His power was concealed at all times and was only used to propagate humility and compassion. Therefore, Chong may have been called a dragon for his fighting ability. However, it was his humility and compassion that truly demonstrated the nature of the dragon. It is for this reason that the street children of Cape Town know and address Chong as the 'DRAGON'.
Quentin Chong opened a security company. Initially, his business was small and catered for local events. However, the reputation of Chong as Cape Towns fighting 'dragon' grew. Consequently, his business expanded in a similar fashion. After a brief period of time, Chong had successfully established himself in the security industry. His clients consisted of the top local and international celebrities like Wesley Snipes & Steven Seagal etc. These include ex-members from the S.A.S (U.K), ex- South African and American S.W.A.T team operatives.
Despite his success in security, Quentin returned to the martial arts. He opened a small Kung Fu school in his garage. It was the original Dragon Power kung-fu Kwoon. He taught a group of young students, which grew steadily. Invariably, teaching became his focus. Chong's fighting skill and Eastern understanding of the martial arts gained him great popularity. However, Chong was not content with teaching alone. He hungered for the fight. He sought to find a competition, which incorporated all aspects of fighting. At the time, the only discipline that allowed for freestyle striking was the Muaythai. This ancient art originated from Thailand thousands of years ago. It has been known as the most brutal ring sport on earth because its combatants are allowed to strike with knees and elbows.
Chong left South Africa and once again went to the East. He trained in Thailand under Manop Masweichen (Nong). This heavy weight Champion recognised Chong's talent. After a brief period of time, he entered Quentin in professional competitions. Chong was a natural fighter, and quickly rose up the competitive rankings. His speed and power overcame many opponents. Gradually, he built an impressive name and record.
After Fighting for some time and travelling to Thailand, Quentin returned home. His experiences overseas changed his perspective on the martial arts. He lived by the motto 'no way, no style, no limit'. He believed that there was no single and infallible way to practice martial arts. Rather, a martial art in
volves the natural flow of energy. One should be open to all styles and focus on using any technique that works to achieve the best result. Using this ideology, Quentin re-opened a school in a business complex in Milnerton, Cape Town. His students became extremely proficient in the martial arts. News spread of his dynamic fighting system, and his martial arts school grew rapidly. Chong rented bigger premises in Green point to accommodate the influx of students. He taught both Muaythai and Kung Fu and his school became one of the most successful in South Africa.
After some time, the reputation of Chong's
ability proceeded itself. Quentin was challenged to a World
Muaythai Title fight in Thailand. This was a formidable task,
because very few westerners are considered legitimate contenders
for Muaythai titles. In July 2001, Quentin Chong faced Saroonsak
for the super middleweight Muaythai World Title. The odds were
heavily stacked against Quentin. He was fighting in Thailand
amongst the champion's most avid supporters. However, Chong shocked
the martial arts world. He scored a knock out in the first round
with a crushing right hand punch. News spread of his uncanny
victory. Chong was launched from the status of a rogue contender to
the world champion.
Quentin Chong returned to South Africa as the world Muaythai Champion. He made history as the first South African to ever hold such a title. In 2002, Chong staged his world title defence in Cape Town. He spent months preparing for his fight with the help of his brother Winston. Winston Chong is also an accomplished fighter. He currently holds a world 'superfight' title and numerous power lifting records. Chong's opponent for the fight was the revered Nokwit Davis. This Thai legend is one of the most feared fighters in the world. His fight record comprises of over 400 hundred fights, 7 championship belts and hundreds of knockouts. Chong was once again the underdog. The fight started evenly, but Chong clenched a victory with a right hand punch in the third round. This became the 'dragons' signature move. It was the last fight in Nokwits prolific career. He retired shortly after.
Chong's victories culminated in an unprecedented success in South Africa. He has become a national sports hero who regularly appears on television. Moreover, he is one of the few martial arts stars to emerge from South Africa. He has acted as the villain in the Jean Claude Van Damme movie, "Wake Of Death" (2003). Moreover, Chong has starred in "Action Star" with Vinnie Jones, Pat Morita (Mr Miyagi from Karate Kid) and Tony Shiena & Death Race. His celebrity status has manifested in numerous commercial endorsements and modelling contracts. He is regularly featured in G.Q and Sports Illustrated, Cosmopolitan, F.H.M, Top Billing magazines, etc. He also endorses Hyundai automobiles, Braun Razors, Motorola, Nokia and. He has released an instructional Muaythai series and Ultimate Muaythai instructional book.
In 2005, Quentin and Steven Seagal visited the Red Cross
hospital and the Khayelitsha orphan homes as the official
representatives of martial arts in South Africa. There they formed
strong bonds with the kids infected with HIV/AIDS.
Today, Quentin Chong in partnership with his brother Winston Chong teaches from his Dragon Power Muaythai MMA & Fitness Centre in Cape Town. It is one of the most advanced fighting centres in the world. It includes numerous boxing rings as well as a fully equipped weights and fitness area. Quentin personally trains the top amateur and professional fighters, security personnel, celebrities and models. He regularly takes his top fighters to the Far East, and many of them have achieved impressive victories.
Quentin's conduct regularly demonstrates the humility of the 'dragon'. He remains in constant contact with his teachers. He always speaks of them with the greatest deference and respect. This attitude has percolated amongst his own students. All of them hold master Chong in the highest regard. Their hours of dedication to training does not only reflect commitment to the martial arts. It also exemplifies the respect and admiration they have for their teacher. Quentin has used his success to help those less fortunate than himself. He donates equipment and funds for martial arts in underprivileged areas. He is also an avid spokesperson against domestic violence. He gives regular seminars on self-defence and often appears in public drives to combat the abuse of women and children.
The journey of the dragon is not over. Quentin Chong is prepared for his 'final fight'. Chong retired after his victory and aims to further dedicate himself to teaching. Quentin will undoubtedly be remembered for his charismatic fighting ability. However, he will be equally remembered for his humility and compassion. These qualities are reflected in the respect he shows for his teachers and his efforts to help those around him. In so doing, Quentin Chong exemplifies a balance between strength and humility. It is for this reason that he will be known and remembered as the true 'dragon'.
Quentin Chong is the founder and also responsible for bringing the first Muaythai fights to South Africa.
After his dramatic victory and his debut in the ring, he began to feature in almost every local magazine and newspaper, and international Muaythai magazine. I.e. he also appeared in many well-recognized SA and Thai magazines: GQ, Men's Health, Sports Illustrated, top local newspapers and the international Muaythai magazines. He has also produced a ladies self-dense tape. At present, he is training South African celebrities such as super models, TV presenters, actors and actresses, bodyguards and security personnel.

Each contestant had to use their new-found martial arts skills to fight their competitors in the ring, for the right to remain in the gym. Using the Muaythai they have been taught each contestant has to survive weeks of elimination as they fight for the honor of being named the Ultimate Warrior.

BOSTON, MA - (February 11, 2011) - Sportslifestyle brand PUMA® has partnered with legendary culture brand, Undefeated, to launch the Undefeated (UNDFTD) Collection with PUMA, a special collection centered around one of PUMA's most iconic and celebrated styles: The PUMA Clyde. This long term project will make Undefeated a true design partner with PUMA, designing a collection of PUMA Clydes that will be released beginning in April and throughout 2011 and beyond.
The partnership between PUMA and Undefeated is about pushing boundaries and refreshing a classic style and icon, The PUMA Clyde. Undefeated and PUMA explored trends in the marketplace and collaborated to interpret these fashion and lifestyle nuances into footwear styles that are inclusive of both brands. The first release from the collection will be on April 10th followed by another release on June 10th, and many more throughout 2011 and beyond. Consumers can expect to see clean lines and a unique exploration of materials and textures.
"Undefeated pushes the envelope and is a leader in starting and spotting new trends throughout the sneaker and lifestyle community," said Jay Piccola, President of PUMA North America. "This partnership allows us to apply these influences to the most significant shoe in PUMA's archive, the PUMA Clyde, and make it new, fresh and appealing to a whole new set of consumers that we know will adore each and every style."
The PUMA Clyde was chosen for this project not only for its significance to the PUMA brand, but also to sneaker history and pop culture. Customized for basketball great and current announcer for The New York Knicks Walt "Clyde" Frazier in 1973, the Clyde was the first signature basketball shoe. Built on performance and style, it immediately became a mainstay on the court and on the street. As a statement shoe, it was part of the uniform for cultural artists - DJs, b-boys, musicians and graffiti artists. With its clean and classic styling, the PUMA Clyde continues to be on-trend today.
"We worked closely with PUMA's design team, and were very
collaborative in every sense of the word," said Eddie Cruz,
Co-Founder of Undefeated. "We shared ideas, brainstormed and pushed
each other on the design language because we really wanted to make
something great together. The end result of the UNDFTD Collection
with PUMA is just that - something great, forward thinking and cool
- and we are excited to build on the momentum of this collection
for seasons to come."
For nearly 10 years Undefeated has been the unofficial voice for the next generation. With storefronts in Hollywood, Silverlake and Santa Monica, California; Las Vegas, Nevada; Shizuoka and Tokyo, Japan they are globally recognized as a leader in streetwear and fashion trends. PUMA and Undefeated first collaborated on a limited edition pack of PUMA Mids that were released in January 2009. The shoes were well received throughout the sneaker community and soon became a sought after style by collectors and style-conscious men and women. This first project helped to lay the groundwork for the new Clyde Collection design partnership.
PUMA and Undefeated will celebrate the Clyde Collection in Las Vegas on February 14th with an exclusive consumer launch event featuring N.E.R.D. at the House of Blues.

Cape Town, South Africa, January 2011 - PUMA Running is striding its way into 2011 with a fun, innovative and technologically advanced range of running shoes-The PUMA Faas Collection. This collection will be available in stores in South Africa from April 2011.
Faas gets its name from the Jamaican word for fast, and the name fits. The collection is grounded in performance and features a biomechanical design technology exclusive to PUMA, called BioRide™, that provides a naturally responsive ride - helping runners get into their own rhythm for increased speed and performance.
The innovative BioRide™ technology featured in the Faas shoes spent years in development. PUMA took a look at some of the fastest athletes affiliated with the brand and studied their movement, foot placement and overall running skills. There were three proven and consistent skills that were identified as critical to top performance. PUMA translated these elements into three categories-Rocker, Flex & Groove-that become the cornerstones of the BioRide™ technology and the Faas shoes.
First, the best runners reduce their amount of time on the ground, making for faster runs and faster times. The Faas Collection incorporates a continuous, rocker-shape outsole which provides smooth touchdown and effortless transition, providing runners with a natural ride and less time on the ground. Second, they do not waste motion. 360 degree flex grooves are placed in key areas throughout the Faas shoes; these flex grooves respond specifically to how the runner's foot moves, providing a truly unique and responsive ride. Lastly, these world-renowned athletes are incredibly aware of the ground, which allows the foot to react instinctively to keep them stable. The Faas shoes have a horizontal groove that runs the lateral side of the shoe. Regardless of how a runner's foot hits the ground, this groove will provide them with natural stability.
PUMA Running knows every runner is unique and what one runner needs may not be necessary for another. To help runners find the best Faas style to suit their needs, PUMA has assigned each style a number, ranging from 100 to 1000. The lower number models, such as the Faas 300, have less cushioning and less structure, providing a lightweight, fast-paced trainer. As the number gets higher, additional cushioning and structure is added to the shoe. The higher number shoes, like the Faas 500, are perfect everyday neutral trainers.
The Faas range from Spring/Summer 2011 features bright, bold colors with unique overlays and design details for each style. PUMA Running's new Faas Collection brings the joy back into running with increased speed and performance, along with some 'check-me-out' designs.
Key Highlights from the Spring/Summer 2011 Running Collection
Faas 300 - The Faas 300 is a lightweight style from the Faas Range that is built for runners who defy convention and speed on a daily basis. Featuring BioRide technology, minimal cushioning and structure, and no heel counter, this shoe is for the runners who are ready to fly. The Faas 300 is stylized with a unique overlay with cut-out circles, giving the shoe a two-toned and exciting look. Available as the Faas 300 for men and Faas 300 W for ladies.
Faas 500 - The Faas 500 incorporate PUMA's new BioRide technology, giving all runners a naturally responsive ride. Falling right in the middle of the Faas Range's numerical scale, the Faas 500 has a complimentary balance of added structure and cushioning to provide a comfortable run with improved speed and performance. The Faas 500 comes in a number of fun, bright colorways, providing runners a surefire way to jazz up their wardrobe and their run. The Faas 500 is available for men in South Africa.
