About Wing Chun

Wing Chun (traditional Chinese: 詠春) is a traditional Southern Chinese Kung fu martial art specialising in close range combat. It is one of the most famous styles of Kung Fu. It is known for being economical, direct and efficient.

Legend has it that Wing Chun Kung Fu was created by a woman and was designed to allow a weaker person to defeat a stronger without resorting to physical strength. This makes it ideal as a system of self defence, as well as providing other benefits such as greater self confidence, fitness, improved balance, coordination and flexibility.
