Self Defense Against Punches, Kicks, and Grabs are all Addressed

Our classes in Wing Tsun™ kung-fu cover all types of attacks. Self defense against punches, kicks, grabs, are all addressed. Wing Tsun addresses five different ranges: kicking, punching, elbows-knees, anti-grappling, and ground. Our special topics classes emphasis certain categories of attacks such as weapons and grappling attacks in order to give students more time and focus on the topic of the month. Students learn how the Wing Tsun ideas are applied in actual situations, in timing, power, neutralizing attacker’s force, footwork and each and every technical and emotional aspect.

Available Self Defense Skills

Regarding available self defense skills, Wing Tsun’s Grandmaster, Leung Ting, has said that WingTsun™ is not a ‘style’ but a system. All of the parts work together without contradiction. Carried further, Wing Tsun is a concept. It is a system not weighted down by thousands of techniques grouped together from several disciplines, the majority of which are unrelated as to concepts. They would be impossible to put together and used with any degree of speed or reliability. In a real self-defense situation, a defender has to react spontaneously according to the moment. There certainly is not any time to re-think that anti-grapple or that kick you just learned the way it was done in class. You have to react according to the concept rather than the choreography. After all, your attacker doesn’t know this movement and he doesn’t care! Self defense that is available is the most useful.

Students learn top notch self-defense skills

We first teach the foundation of great self defense skills. Footwork and basic hand skills that really work are taught early on.  They form the basis of the ability to stay on one’s feet if attacked, borrow an attacker’s force and move quickly out of the line of attack.

Unlike the other versions of Wing Chun coming from the Yip Man lineage, Leung Ting WingTsun® teaches applications on the ground as well as anti-grappling and applications against techniques from other fighting methods and weapons.  Unlike the other versions from the Yip Man lineage, Leung Ting WingTsun® teaches the footwork necessary to get out of the way of an attack and apply the concepts within the first few ranks. The realistic applications training is ongoing.

Long range, Close range, Hard force then Soft

WingTsun™ is taught in stages. The most direct techniques are taught first, applying the techniques of the first form, (the little idea form). When somebody attacks by throwing a short hook or grabbing your shirt or neck from the front, the straight punch while quickly stepping in is your first fighting lesson, closing in from a longer range to close range, right in his face. This, of course, is very basic. Practice results in developing timing and position so that an attacker cannot easily counter-attack. The punch and the forward stance are based on the first few movements of the first form. These movements are efficient and address very common attacks.
