Wing Chun develops the whole person !!!
The eight principles of Wing Chun form a system of aggressive self-defense that allows one to adapt immediately to the size, strength and fighting style of an attacker.
There are many ways to express the principles, since they are essentially very simple.
Only by practicing Chi Sao with a knowledgeable instructor
to train the body to follow the principles reflexively and to understand their applications in specific situations.
As well as describing the progression of a self-defense response, the strength principles also describe the progression a Wing Chun student must follow:
First, form training and a great deal of punching to learn to
be relaxed in a fight and to (counter intuitively) punch without tension ;
Second, hours of Chi Sao training to be able to yield to and exploit the attackers strength
Finally, strength training specific to Wing Chun to increase punching and striking power.
Adults find their martial arts training teaches them important life skills –
a new sense of empowerment that extends past the physical maneuvers of self-defence.
Our students develop the confidence and self-esteem it takes to Stand-Up and face life head on,
seeking new challenges and persevering when times get tough.

traditional moral values like integrity, respect and perseverance thats refreshing and much needed
