WingTsun™ – A Flexible System for Everyone

WingTsun™ is passive in defense; and advocates attack only in response to an opponent’s attack. The underlying principles of the martial art are the same as it’s underlying philosophy. WingTsun™ seeks to provide balance. Students are taught as a group, yet guided individually. The class environment is friendly and family-oriented. Whilst being a traditional martial art, our teaching of the system is constantly reflecting realistic self-defence situations, and adapts to suit the needs of today’s society.

During class, students engage in the following methods of training:

wt-knifes-guerman-attanassovForms Training – which teaches concentration, mental focus and precision of body movement.

Chi-Sau – a training exercise unique to WingTsun™ kung fu, which uses tactile reflex development and muscle memory to “program” the limbs how to react to contact with an opponent’s attack.

Lat-Sau– free-fighting training, where the student learns to use the movements of the forms and the chi-sau program for either sparring or actual fighting.

Strength Training – to build and improve one’s strength and power. Students use a variety of training equipment such as kicking shields, focus mitts, heavy bags, wallbags, suspended spring, the wooden dummy, and tripodal dummy to improve their strength, flexibility, coordination, focus and timing.

Complimentary Exercises – to build and improve one’s skill, flexibility, coordination, focus and timing using additional WingTsun™ kung fu training drills.

Wooden Dummy Techniques – the most advanced empty hand form of Leung Ting WingTsun®, practiced on a wooden dummy.

Weapons – training in the Six-and-a-Half-Point Long Pole (Luk-Dim-Boon Kwun) techniques and the Eight-Cutting Broadswords (Bart-Cham-Dao) techniques.

WT is the complete system covering all of the 5 ranges in unarmed selfdefence, which are;

Kicking – Longest unarmed range
Punching – Most common range for self-defence
Elbows & Knees – Closer than Punching Range
Stand-Up Grappling – Shortest unarmed stand-up range
Anti Ground Fighting – Groundwork
