Wing Chun Kung Fu

Wing Chun is the most widely known and practiced style of Kung Fu in the world. It is direct, efficient, practical, and easy to learn – (Factors that make it one of the best martial arts for women as well.) Rooted in physics of bodily motion, Wing Chun emphasizes technique over brute force and empowers smaller or weaker practitioners to overcome opponents much larger or stronger than themselves. Wing Chun is a powerful close-quarters style of self defense - ideal for use in confined spaces such as airplanes, buses, offices and bars, places where obstacles that limit mobility.

A fundamental principle of Wing Chun is the centerline theory: the theory that a straight line is the shortest distance between two points. Therefore, opponents attacking with a hook punch would be countered by the advance of a Wing Chun straight punch. Of course, the straight punch would arrive sooner.

Another vital principle of Wing Chun is economy of movement and energy. For example, there are no hard blocks employed in Wing Chun. Instead a counter-strike would be delivered to intercept the attack. In this way, energy is not wasted by blocking and countering; both are delivered simultaneously, thus deflecting the attack and landing a blow. Kicks are generally low, aiming below the waist to stop advances or trip-up opponents.

One important technique of Wing Chun is Chi Sau, (also called Sticky Hands) whereby students learn to sense their opponents' energy and anticipate attacks through sensitivity of touch. Wing Chun students quicken their reflexes and contineously advance in upper body technique and footwork.

A central focus of Wing Chun training is the Wing Chun Wooden Dummy. Through Wooden Dummy practice, students expand skills on an individual basis as they apply techniques without the need of a partner.

Wing Chun training centers on drills and application of techniques. There are only three hand forms, a wooden dummy set, and two weapon sets in the entire system. However, to truly grasp Wing Chun, one needs to understand the ideas and theories behind the techniques. The entire system can be learned in as little as three to five years, but mastery can take a lifetime. Master Sam Chan has been instructing Wing Chun for over 37 years.
