About Wing Tsun

WingTsun™ martial arts classes in Gilbert, AZ teach this southern Chinese kung fu method and is part of the largest Wing Chun organization – the International WingTsun™ Association. WingTsun is not your usual type of martial arts class. It is a close-range punching, striking, low kicking and anti-grappling system that develops highly evolved sticky hands skills in all students that persevere. It is a superb system of self-defense. Certain martial arts from southern China and Okinawa are probably related to it because of certain similarities but nobody knows for sure. The legend says that it was invented by a female monk from the Shaolin monastery. In the 20th century, Bruce Lee studied from Yip Man. There is no ‘sport’ application. Students learn exacting self-defense skills and mastery of the inner self, mentally and physically. Head instructor has 34 years experience teaching the Leung Ting WingTsun® system of the Yip Man Lineage. The schedule for Wing Tsun Arizona martial arts in Gilbert has three classes on three evenings per week in Gilbert, AZ. You can read more about Wing Tsun on our NEWS section which has an ongoing list of informative blogs.

Who can learn WingTsun?

The best candidates are those with previous martial arts training since WingTsun can be considered high concept. WingTsun was sought out in the past by experts from other systems who were looking for a martial art with more advanced concepts and were willing to start at the beginning and could “empty their cup” – in other words forget the previous training so as to accept a new ‘little idea.’ Those without previous martial art experience can also learn WingTsun but will usually learn at a slower pace.

Some martial arts instructors like to classify students according to their body build regarding which style they should study. The goal in WingTsun is to develop core leg strength, especially in the legs and upper body flexibility. Strong core strength in the legs and the presence of slender and flexible upper body muscles greatly assists in learning WingTsun. Poor physical condition greatly slows progress in any physical endeavor and WingTsun is no exception.

If you are in already in good physical condition and are in reasonably good health, you can enhance your overall fitness and health as well as gaining self-defense skills with Wing Tsun™ (Wing Chun) martial arts training. If you have been waiting for something to come along to give you instant gratification however, Wing Tsun is not that thing. A real martial art cannot give you that because it takes time for the mind and body to load into it all the mind body connections in order to understand it. If, however, you want the learning experience of a true martial art, Wing Tsun is it.

Learn the well-known self-defense reliability of the art of Yip Man (Ip Man) in the Leung Ting lineage.

If you are already at a good level of fitness, you can increase your upper body flexibility through forms work and rapid-fire punching exercise.
