In short, it can be described as a concept-based/principle-based Chinese combat art and form of self-defense utilizing both striking and grappling while specializing in close-range combat. It is literally the distillation of “2,000 years of Chinese Combat Wisdom” folded into an efficient no-nonsense training system. Because Wing Chun utilizes principle-concepts such as economy of motion, centerline theory, geometry, relaxation, balance, structure, and stance, among others. When it is taught correctly, it remains an incredibly dominant combat art for today’s modern world.
Wing Chun uses these principal-concepts to overcome brute strength, and is therefore designed for use by all people regardless of age, gender, size, or body type. Authentic Ip Man Wing Chun is used in law enforcement, military, public / private security, and many other applications where close combat skills are required. It has been estimated that there are approximately 4 Million Men & Women Practicing Wing Chung Kung Fu worldwide, making it the most popular style of Kung Fu today.
Our instructors provide comprehensive training for all conceivable applications of the art. Our instructors believe that it is important for new and existing students to feel safe during training in spite of deadly nature of the game. The training atmosphere is friendly and family-like while at the same time carefully maintaining quality and competence standards. Traditional characteristics of kindness and humbleness are emphasized so as to prevent the students from developing the bullying attitudes that are so common in martial arts today.
We are absolutely opposed to bullying in all its forms and in all age groups and actively work to make sure that our students are part of the solution instead of the problem. Bullies are not allowed. One of the ways that we ensure this is by having students study the leadership literature and practices of the Chinese Classics as an integral part of their studies. We also encourage the study of eastern medicine and health concepts so as to provide a balanced mindset to counterbalance the combat side of our training.
