What is Wing Chun?
Wing Chun is a logical, scientific, yet simple martial art which provides both self-defence and fitness skills for people of all ages. It emphasises economical body mechanics; utilising efficient musculoskeletal structure within the techniques, which eliminates reliance on muscular strength.
Wing Chun is suitable for anybody, regardless of age, sex or physique. All of Wing Chun's techniques are based on direct, natural body movements which are easy to learn and can be applied immediately.
Wing Chun teaches students how to utilise their bodies efficiently to generate more power. Through the co-ordination of movements, correct use of body structure and focused use of elbow energy, Wing Chun students can develop power equal to that of much larger, stronger assailants. Students quickly learn how to redirect or neutralise powerful strikes without using brute strength such as hard blocking. Students are encouraged to analyse and question the reason for movements. Training is aimed at sharpening mental as well as physical skills - relaxation, concentration and awareness form an integral part of the system, additionally Wing Chun offers the proven benefits of relaxation and stress management.
