Why you should learn Wing Chun

Wing Chun is a highly aggressive art and concentrates on fighting and defending from the centerline. The most famous technique is the One Inch Punch, made famous by Bruce Lee. This is done by relaxing the punching hand, and tensing it suddenly on impact.

All Wing Chun techniques are perfected on the wooden dummy, which consists of two arms, a mid section protraction and a leg for practicing low kicks.

Sticky hands (Chi Sao), is an important feature of Wing Chun . Two practitioners face each other and move their wrists and forearms against each other - These exercises develop sensitivity so that the Wing Chun fighter can quickly anticipate his opponent's next move.

History of Wing Chun

Wing Chun is a kung fu system founded by Yim Wing Chun , who lived in Fukien with her father.

Yim learnt kung fu from Ng Mui, a nun of the Shaolin Temple. Yim observed a snake fighting a crane, and together with Ng, created a new kung fu style consisting of three forms that became known as Siu Nim Tau (Little Idea), Chum Kiu (Seeking Bridges) and Biu Jee (Darting Fingers). Ng suggested that the style be named Wing Chun .

Yim taught Wing Chun to her husband, Leung Bo Zhou, who incorporated the 6 1/2 feet pole or staff set to the system.

Wing Chun did not gain widespread popularity until in recent times. The master who did the most to spread Wing Chun was Yip Man. Originally from Foshan, Yip fled to Hong Kong in the turmoil of communist takeover of China and set up schools in Hong Kong to teach Wing Chun . His pupils include Bruce Lee.
