Sibok Eric Kraushaar completed an undergraduate degree in economics at Wilfrid Laurier University, and then attended the University of Windsor for law school. After starting a law practice, with his office very close to the kung-fu academy, as well as starting a family, the need for fitness and regular training had to be addressed, and he re-started training in kung-fu. He had dabbled in it during university at WLU with Ron Day, who had just arrived and was starting a school in this area.
In 1989, he started studying seriously with Sifu Bob Schneider (later addressed as Sigung) who had recently started the Waterloo Kung Fu Academy, and was given a black sash in 1995.
Sibok Eric has been teaching the Wednesday noon class since that time and has also continued to attend classes to train and practice himself, several times a week since that time. He is currently ranked as a 3rd degree black sash.
In May 2019, the school presented Sifu Eric—now Sibok Eric—with this new title of “Sibok”. This respectful title for senior instructors reflect’s Sibok Eric’s many years of dedication to our school. He was a trusted advisor to WKFA’s founder, Sigung Bob Schneider, and he has been a valued teacher and mentor to WKFA’s current owner, Sigung David Moylan. Sibok Eric’s positive influence on the culture of our school, and the high standard of kung-fu in which we train, cannot be understated. The title Sibok is very fitting.
