What is Wing Chun
Wing Chun is an explosive close range combat martial art system that originated in southern China 300 to 400 years ago. The system consists of three empty hand forms, wooden dummy form and two weapons forms. Wing Chun is unique compared to most other martial arts in that it does not rely on strength against strength making it more suitable for persons of a small build or stature.
It is a scientific form of martial art that utilises various concepts and principals in order to defeat an aggressor. Designed with self preservation in mind Wing Chun is ideally suited for self protection, something you may well need with today’s ever increasing violent society. Wing Chun has many health benefits,
