Over the last 35 years, Wing Chun has become known for its practical, street combat effectiveness. If you are looking for a down-to-earth, sensible approach to real-life fighting and self-defense techniques, then Wing Chun is the answer. The basic philosophies of the Wing Chun fighting system include center line theory, straight line attacks. You will learn the concept of economy of motion and how this will quicken your speed and effectiveness. You will also learn how to use every part of your body as a weapon and as a blocking instrument.

The core of Wing Chun is simplicity. There are not dozens of forms that you have to learn in order to advance, only three empty-hand forms and one wooden dummy form. But beware, it is simple to learn but very hard to master!

One aspect of Wing Chun Kung Fu is "sticky hands" - or Chi Sau - practice. This is a special type of drill that trains students in very close-range fighting. To prepare for situations of close-proximity to an opponent, exercises like Chi Sau are crutial as they develop speed of attack and fast reaction time. This leads to "sticky-legs" training and eventually the blindfolded Chi Sau. All of these exercises are designed to develop practical fighting skills, maximizing your self-defense potential.

Although Wing Chun does employ kicking as an attack means, it does not stress techniques designed to strike high targets, nor does it use spinning momentum. The concept of Wing Chun leg strikes is as straight forward as it's hand techniques. Kicking is approached as punching with the feet, avoiding targets that can compromise balance. Other martial arts forms have a more impressive styling in this regard, but Wing Chun is designed to effect real fighting opponents, not tournament judges.
