"It is better to be a warrior in a garden than a gardener in a war."
Wing Chun Kung Fu is a martial art dedicated to the subject of self defence. Our adults classes can help you build core strength, increase your flexibility, learn how to defend yourself and the people you love, loose weight. Wing Chun Kung Fu was invented for adults and it is not a sport and has never had any inclination to be in a combative arena for the purpose of winning against an opponent, or to develop the human beings ego to over power and influence others.
"Self defence is nature's eldest Law."

This stands for free fighting, but as a beginner we start sparring in this game to get you used to being in close distance and learning to deal with basic attacks being thrown at you. Once you are good enough you can dispense with this way of training and move onto being more realistic, but it is a fantastic tool to develop your skills to begin with.
This is known as art of Sticking Hands, once you are at punching range or closer then you will be in contact with your opponent. Chi Sau builds directly into your body the skills you need to defend yourself and open the other person up once you are in contact with the attacker.

For the majority of people who begin Martial Arts training the use of the fist is a difficult one to overcome, this however is an unfortunate compromise needed in order learn to defend your self, Wing Chun is the only original Martial Art that punches with a vertical fist so needs to be taught to the student and mastered, we achieve this through various punching drills and exercises.
Wing Chun is dynamic, the ability to move on your feet quickly is paramount, the better your foot work the more balance you have and the quicker you can move and the better the chance of not getting hit, the importance of great footwork can not be overstated in the art of Wing Chun, our foot work sequences and drills quickly help with your balance and co-ordination.
Wing Chun Kung Fu can also be viewed as a set of theories, principles and mottos. The last subject is theory, although the last that a student understands it is the most important.

This will give you everything you need to apply the art to suit you as an individual.
