About Wing Tsun

Wing Tsun (also spelled Wing Chun) is a concept-based Chinese martial art and form of self-defense known for its emphasis on using an opponent’s force against them, rather than directly opposing it. Through techniques such as strikes, kicks, grappling, and controlled close-quarters combat, Wing Tsun practitioners learn the skills need to defend themselves and those around them.

Why Wing Tsun


Close-range combat

Wing Tsun is specifically designed for close-quarters combat. It emphasizes staying close to the opponent to control and neutralize their actions.



Wing Tsun techniques are straightforward. They are designed to be practical and effective under real-world conditions. 


Economy of movement

Wing Tsun uses the shortest and most direct routes for attack and defense, minimizing unnecessary movements. 


Chi Sau (Sticky Hands)

This distinctive training method is a hallmark of Wing Tsun, focusing on sensitivity, reflexes, and timing. Practitioners learn to maintain contact with their opponent's arms to feel and redirect their movements. 


Use of opponent's force

Wing Tsun teaches practitioners to use an attacker's force against them rather than meeting force with force. 


Structure and centerline theory

Wing Tsun places a significant emphasis on maintaining a strong structural alignment and controlling the centerline—the imaginary line that runs down the center of both the practitioner's and the opponent's body. This concept is crucial for both defense and offense in Wing Tsun.


Limited use of high kicks and acrobatics

Unlike some Kung Fu styles known for their high kicks, acrobatic movements, and extensive use of leg techniques, Wing Tsun focuses more on practical, grounded stances and primarily uses kicks to targets below the waist. These differences make Wing Tsun a Kung Fu that is accessible to all ages, genders, and levels of physical fitness.

Siu Nim Tao

Chum Kiu, which translates to "Seeking the Bridge," is the second. form in the Wing system, following the foundational Siu Nim Tao form. Chum Kiu builds upon the basic principles established in Siu Nim Tao and introduces new concepts and techniques, particularly focusing on movement, turning, and the use of the practitioner's stance to generate power. The "bridge" in Chum Kiu refers to the connection between the practitioner and their opponent, and the form teaches how to establish and control this connection during combat.

Biu Jee

Biu Jee, which translates to "Thrusting Fingers" or "Darting Fingers," is the third traditional form of Wing Tsun. It focuses on emergency techniques, precision striking. and dealing with situations where the practitioner is at a disadvantage, such as being off-balance, confined, or facing multiple attackers.

Chi Sau

Often translated as "Sticky Hands," Chi Sau is a distinctive and integral training exercise in Wing Tsun, designed to develop sensitivity, reflexes, and technique in close-range combat. It is a two-person drill that allows practitioners to feel and respond to their opponent's energy and movements, teaching them to adapt and counter in real time.
