About Wing Tsun

It is a punching, striking, low kicking and anti-grappling system. It is a superb system of self-defense.

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.

If you are in reasonably good health, you can enhance your overall health and fitness 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.

Why us?

Self Defense

Learn the well-known self-defense reliability of the art of Yip Man (Ip Man) in the Leung Ting lineage. Wing Tsun is scientific, using economy of movement, sticking with an attacker’s arms and legs, straight-line defense and counter-attack, upright stances, evasive footwork, and borrowing an attacker’s force with greater emphasis than other lineages.


Increase upper body flexibility through forms work and rapid-fire punching exercise. Get stronger, faster legs from footwork emphasis, control your breathing with wind-exercises done as part of the footwork and chain-punch training. Strengthen legs, stretch upper body muscles, improve balance, defeat the effects of stress, move toward a healthier life style!


Deal with the stress of everyday life by attending classes in a relaxed atmosphere with helpful instructors and fellow students. In addition, specific and accompanying breath control helps one solve the tense shoulder problem. Correct posture issues from desk and computer work, strengthen legs, improve circulation.
