Free Hands-on Introduction to Wing Chun

Wing Chun is a very unique and effective martial art. It is a system of fighting that enabled a smaller, weaker person such as herself to destroy a bigger, stronger person within a few seconds.

Come and learn about the basic principles of Wing Chun from the master coach and make friends with others interested in martial art!

What makes Wing Chun Powerful?

Wing Chun is different from many of today's popular styles, such as karate, tae kwon do, and Shaolin kung fu. While these styles block first and then attack, a Wing Chun student will defend and attack simultaneously. Wing Chun students also do not draw back before striking; instead, they strike from any position. This method both increases the speed and eliminates the telegraphing of the strike. In this way, in the time it takes a karate student to throw one or two punches, a Wing Chun student will throw at least nine.

While most other styles rely on windup to generate striking force, Wing Chun uses the structure of the entire body to create power in a small space. Wing Chun's famous "one-inch punch" is a testament to its striking power. Because proper positioning will overcome sheer strength, much of a Wing Chun student's time is spent training his or her body to move precisely and efficiently. Wing Chun uses chi sao (sticking hands) training to develop this precision and economy of motion.

      Hi Annie, On what day do you think we will have a better turn-out? Like I said to Mike, if you are interested, you can tell me what days you are free to come to the studio. We can give you a smaller group intro.

      Hi Rickie, it is great that you are interested in learning Wing Chun. If you can come to the Saturday event, it will give you an idea on the basics of Wing Chun and if you want to train regularly. If you can't make it, tell me which weekday evenings work for you we can schedule an orientation for you at the school.

    Hi Ben I really wanted to attend on Saturday Dec 14 but stuck at work. I am free on Monday Dec 9, when is a good time to attend?

    • Ben

      Hi Hubert, if you are serious about learning Wing Chun and train weekly, you can show up tomorrow for an orientation at 7pm. I am not sure if Sifu is around, but some senior members could show you.

      You can find more about the school on the website. http://vingtsunsito.c...­

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
