What we're about
Wing Tsun is an intelligent martial art style specifically designed to use superior skill, technique and energy principles to defeat an opponent who may have superior size or strength. Wing Tsun does not counter force with force, but uses economy of motion and efficiency to gain a competitive advantage. With this training, you will gain confidence through improved situational awareness, fitness, creative expression, and self-defense!
Wing Tsun, 詠春, is a Southern Chinese martial art originated over 300 years ago during the Qing dynasty. Wing Tusn is a "soft" style that does not counter force with force but instead recycles energy and employs a sophisticated method of response using trained reflexes. Chi-Sao ("sticky hands") training is used to develop and hone these reflexes to specific pressures or triggers so that they become automatic in real situations.
The Wing Tsun program is designed to realistic and effective in application, self defense, and fighting. The art of Wing Tsun was developed specifically to address typical attacks from other martial art styles. The program addresses situations one might encounter on the street including all manner of kicks and punches, grappling, locks, chokes, etc.
