Sifu Sonnenberg appears in a karate uniform because he trained in Tang Soo Do in his teens. His Tang soo Do training was between 1967 and 1975. He attained the first degree black belt. During this time he taught classes at YMCAs, Parks and recreation departments. He also competed in tournaments, and photographed his martial arts classmates and instructors. Sifu Sonnenberg owned a Wing Chun school under the instruction of another Wing Chun master in Phoenix the late 1970s. During that time studied Chinese Iron Palm hand conditioning, coached his students in tournament wins, and began training in techniques from still another Wing Chun lineage.
