Wing Chun Kung Fu
What it is:
Wing Chun Kung Fu is a Chinese martial art that is focuses on close quarter combat and self defense.
How it works:
Wing Chun Kung Fu utilises principles of centre line theory, touch sensitivity, and economy of movement to provide a practical system of self defence that is simple, efficient, and direct. Training includes forms practice, touch sensitivity training (chi sao, or sticky hands), wooden dummy practice, sparring, and Wing Chun Kung Fu specific strength and conditioning training. Wing Chun Kung Fu is a principle based system of self defence. Therefore, a tertiary approach to teaching is taken. Students are encouraged to learn at their own pace, to play, and explore the art within the framework of a variety of different skill building drills and reality based tactical exercises.
The benefits of Wing Chun Kung Fu:
Benefits of training Wing Chun Kung Fu include: practical real world self defense, improved fitness, coordination, self-discipline, and mental focus.
