Sibok Lloyd Fridenburg began his kung-fu journey at the Waterloo Kung-Fu Academy in the spring of 1989.
Sibok Lloyd currently teaches our Intermediate / Advanced adult students.
In May 2019, the school presented Sifu Lloyd—now Sibok Lloyd—with this new title of “Sibok”. This respectful title for senior instructors reflect’s Sibok Lloyd’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 Lloyd’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.
