An avid martial arts lover, Rae has trained in Taekwondo, Karate and Judo during his younger days. He also taught Taekwondo at Mayflower Secondary School, competed in several tournaments and was awarded bronze in the Shitoryu Karate Kata Championship. But ever since he followed Sifu Chua in 2012, he has dedicated himself only to Wing Chun because he finds it to be the most practical and realistic martial art for street self-defence. When asked about why he chooses Wing Chun as his favourite martial art, Rae explains, "Wing Chun relies on structure rather than brute strength. It emphasizes softness to overcome hardness. It's moves are simple yet elegant. It's principles are easy to understand yet scientifically profound." Rae is appointed by his master Sifu Chua to be the instructor at Fighter Fitness.
