Wing Chun is a system of martial arts developed in southern China approximately 300 years ago made popular by the late Bruce Lee and Grandmaster Yip Man.
Its originator, the Buddhist nun Ng Mui, was a master of Shaolin Kung Fu and used this knowledge to invent a way to take advantage of the weaknesses inherent in the other Shaolin systems.
Wing Chun specializes in developing dynamic, explosive and street-oriented practical self defense. it relies on developing leverage and sensitivity rather than muscular strength to overcome an opponent.
Training develops reflex speed, coordination and power to enable someone to quickly and effortlessly dispatch a larger and stronger attacker without relying on size or strength.
Through the use of solo forms, training equipment such as the wooden dummy and focus mitts, as well as two man drills, students develop attributes of body coordination, sensitivity and leverage to apply the principles of Wing Chun in all situations including trapping, grappling and punching/kicking.
