While comparing the various martial arts that we had studied, one of my mentors once remarked, “I think there are some arts that people read their way into. Aikido is one. Wing Chun is another.” More than a decade after that conversation, I now understand the truth of that statement. For you who wish to read and research and understand the art of Wing Chun, we provide the following chapters.
The first five chapters are presented in a linear sequence to help you read and understand more about this particular course, the art of Wing Chun Kung Fu, the scope of this curriculum, our unique training methodology, and how to get started with your training. The remaining links are resources for further reading, answering important questions, and understanding the history and evolution of Wing Chun. Please read the first five chapters prior to signing up, as this will help you decide if this course is right for you. Return to the other resources as you like.
Each of these chapters will take approximately 15 minutes to read. While available on phones, reading on a larger screen like a tablet, laptop, or computer is recommended.
The Wing Chun Concepts Course
Wing Chun is a simple but effective method of self-defense based in the traditional Chinese martial arts of Kung Fu. It is a relatively young system, but in the last few hundred years it has spread to every corner of the Earth because it is practical, concise and adaptable.
The training process as outlined in this guide is designed to cultivate maximum skill in Wing Chun Kung Fu in the minimum amount of time and with the least possible impact on the rest of your daily schedule.
The Wing Chun Concepts course is available both as in-person training at our school in Birmingham, AL, USA, or as stand-alone Online Training for people who either do not have access to a class, or want to supplement their current training. Select your path.
Wing Chun Resources
The martial art style that came to be known as WING CHUN originated in a period of civil war that marked the transition between the Ming and Qing Dynasties. The rebellious martial arts monks of Shaolin were hunted down and killed and the temples burned to the ground. Kung fu masters who managed to escape death fled into exile or went into hiding.
