Why learn Wing Chun?
Wing Chun Kung Fu is one of the most realistic and devastating martial arts you can learn. It’s simple and effective; size, age and gender are no barrier and its techniques and principles are taught around the world to law enforcement, the military, special forces and security professionals. Of course, its most famous practitioner was the formidable Bruce Lee who recognised its effectiveness and based much of his Jeet Kune Do kung fu on Wing Chun.
In short, Wing Chun is a proven system of fighting.
What makes Wing Chun such a popular choice for self-defence?
Techniques that work in the real world
Wing Chun “gets the job done”. What do we mean by that? We mean, you won’t find fancy techniques that are nice to look at but are impractical, ineffective or simply do not work in a real confrontation.
You won’t find techniques that, whilst undoubtedly effective, rely on youth or strength to apply or assume you face just one opponent whose friends will stand by passively whilst you fight him.
Wing Chun is designed to neutralise a threat (or threats) quickly – in a matter of seconds – allowing you to escape safely. It’s not about posing or choreographed, unrealistic fighting. It’s instinctual and direct – a few seconds of sustained aggression to neutralise a threat.
Quick to learn
Wing Chun does not take years of training to learn. With regular, good-quality tuition, you can become competent in three or four months. Of course, it takes many years to excel at Wing Chun but with just the basics you could defend yourself against the typical, untrained thug.
Effective for all
When it comes to self-defence, Wing Chun truly levels the playing field. It was invented by a woman and to this day you can see how it shuns pitting strength against strength but instead uses simple physics to achieve its goals.
Since it does not rely on physical build or strength, its effectiveness is not diminished by the practitioner’s age as much as other styles.
A good basis for further martial arts study
Even if you do not dedicate yourself solely to Wing Chun, its principles will stand you in good stead for other martial arts systems. In short, it’s a practical and valuable arsenal in your martial arts training. Think of it as the core component in your learning to fight. If you have a good grounding in Wing Chun, you will have a huge advantage over many other fighters.

What if you made the decision to learn Wing Chun today? However you choose to spend the next few months, the time will pass.

- The ability to defend yourself in the real world with a proven and respected martial arts system
