Jonathan Hines has been a student at the Philip Nearing School of Wing Chun since 2013. From a very young age Jonathan has had a passion for martial arts after being inspired by the legendary Bruce Lee. He is a practitioner of multiple styles and he received a purple belt in Hapkido in 2000. He has also held several security positions over the years including stints at the House of Blues and Jefferson Bar and Grill. Jonathan has a classical view of the Wing Chun system, seeing it as a powerful form of release and a useful tool for focusing mind, body and spirit. Jonathan plays a helpful role in assisting the newer members of the studio with getting acclimated to the Wing Chun style and can always be relied upon to give a helping hand.
