Testimonials

I don’t say this lightly: joining Wing Tsun Illinois is one of the best decisions I have made for my personal growth. I leave each class feeling accomplished and invigorated. Even on days when I am tired and feel out of step – I always feel supported. I cannot recommend Wing Tsun Illinois highly enough.

Tina Garcia, Ph.D.

Associate Director, Commuter and Off-Campus Life (University of Illinois at Chicago), Faculty, ENLACE Higher Education Master's Program (Northeastern Illinois University)

The training at Wing Tsun Illinois has reprogrammed both my body and mind, allowing me to develop new skills and become goal oriented, while also developing an acute awareness upon contact through training. I highly recommend this art to anyone seeking to improve their life, for both health and for the development of an efficient method of self defense. 

Greg Sondgeroth

Since I began, my weight has increased by 10 Lbs and my metabolic levels have improved. I have an increase in energy and strength and recently Sifu explained the concept of Nim Tao to me. This has had a profound impact on me physically and mentally. I have researched this and found only a few who understand it and even fewer who can teach it… This experience with Sifu Guerman at his studio has had a great impact on me and my daily life.

Nick Caro, M.D.

Retired Ophthalmologist trained at Cook County Hospital.

This school’s emphasis on body posture, structure and sensitivity had me realize some mistakes I had been making, and took my training to a new level. At Wing Tsun Illinois, while getting technical challenges and a good workout, we also receive great mental training. It is a journey of endless learning and improvements that you just have to come experience for yourself.
