All newcomers are welcomed into the beginners group for a compulsory 16 lesson introductory course, during which time they are taught the basics. There is no uniform or formal training clothing required; training or jogging trousers, a plain t-shirt/sweatshirt and training shoes (and a desire to learn) are all that is needed.

Over the introductory period, beginners are taught the basics whilst having the opportunity to watch 16 typical lessons, ask questions about all and any aspects of the Wing Chun system, the Sifu (teacher), the classes etc.. At the end of the introductory course newcomers can decide whether they wish to apply to join the Y.W.C.K.

However during that same 16 lesson introductory period the newcomer is the subject of a psychological and physical assessment by the Sifu (teacher) who will listen to the questions asked, review their attendances and punctuality, note the beginner's respect (or lack of it) and assess their attitude and suitability. At the end of the introductory course the Sifu will decide whether to invite and accept the applicant as a member, student and ambassador to the school.

"We teach by selection and invitation only, we offer authentic Wing Chun taught in the traditional manner. We set and expect the highest standards, teaching only respectful, disciplined and dedicated martial artists, who train hard with the correct mental attitude"
Sifu Shaun Rawcliffe - Chief Instructor MWCK
