Grandmaster – Glenn C. Wilson

Grandmaster Glenn C. Wilson has spent most of his life deep in the study of the ancient and traditional martial arts of Asia. He started training in the arts as a young boy growing up in Key Largo / Homestead, Florida. Glenn chose the hard, disciplined study of the arts as his path. Every practitioner chooses their own path and system of study in the martial arts that fits them. Known to be a bit of a recluse, the isolated traditional training fit him well. His study began close to home and eventually would take him throughout the world.

He has had several influencers throughout his martial arts life but very few traditional teachers. His traditional teachers are:

Charles R. Wilson – Judo
Thomas Dunn – Tracey Kenpo
Jim McIntosh – Shorinji Kempo, Gong Yuen Chuan Fa
Daniel Kalimaahaae Kane Pai – Pai Lum / Lung Tao
Lama Shi De Chao – Shaolin Iron Palm Iron Body


Grandmaster Wilson has been training in the martial arts for more than sixty years. On Glenn’s 10th birthday he began what would become a lifelong devotion to martial arts. He started in Kodokan Judo where he learned traditional discipline at a young age. When he was 16 he witnessed a Kenpo demonstration by Master Thomas Dunn of the Tracy’s Kenpo System that captivated him more than anything he’d ever experienced in the arts. The smooth, fluid and extremely powerful techniques mystified the young martial artist, who to this day holds a major reverence for its curriculum. Glenn studied the various Kenpo disciplines of Tracy’s Kenpo, Shorinji Kempo, Chinese Kenpo and the style that would stay with him for life – Bok Leen Pai Kenpo. He made the natural transition from his Kenpo roots to the various studies of Chuan Fa.

Glenn trained in Gong Yuen Chuan Fa, Lo Han Chuan, Moi Fah Chuan, Five Animal methods, White Crane, and Pai Te Lung Chuan of Pai Lum Tao – a style that captured his imagination and gave new meaning to his martial arts pursuits. The internal influences that would help him center his life and training were practiced in Pai Lum Tao’s systems of Pai Yung Tai Chi, Quan Nien Pai Chi Kung and Chin Kon Pai Meditation. Glenn’s life would change for the good in the mid seventies when he went from the private outdoor (very secluded) training of Master Jim Mcintosh to being accepted as a direct disciple of martial arts legend Great Grandmaster Dr. Daniel Kalimaahaae Kane Pai.

Glenn was brought into the Pai Lum Tao System at the rank he held at the time in the Kou Shu of Taiwan – a third higher level black. This was a very rare happening and reserved for only the few warriors with honor, courage and a very high level of martial skill and discipline. Then in 1979 Dr. Pai elevated Glenn to Master and named him head of his family of Pai Lum Tao martial arts. That was ordained the ‘Gong Yuen Chuan Fa family of Pai Lum Tao Martial Arts. Several years before Dr. Pai’s passing he and his disciple, Glenn, formed the White Dragon Warrior Society. The formation was designed to preserve the traditions of Pai Lum Tao, share and strengthen the system and legitimize rank among the families. Dr. Pai served as the Chairman of the Board and Co-Founder, while Glenn was Vice Chairman of the Board of the White Dragon Warrior Society, Inc. (after Dr. Pai’s passing Glenn became Chairman of the Board), President of Glenn Wilson’s Martial Arts Academies International, and Head Coach of the Wilson’s Warriors Competition/ Demonstration Team. Great Grandmaster Pai passed away in 1993. This left Grandmaster Glenn C. Wilson in charge of the Society they formed – the White Dragon Warrior Society – as well as Grandmaster of his “own” Family of Pai Lum Tao.

Grandmaster Wilson has had a truly illustrious career. As a competitor in the seventies he was a member of the U.S. Team and won five world titles and eight U.S. National titles.
