About Wing Chun Kung Fu
Kung Fu was developed by the Shaolin monks to counter the lack of physical fitness arising from the sedentary nature of Buddhist meditation. The art was further practised by the monks in order that they could defend themselves.
Wing Chun has been made famous by exponents such as Grandmaster Ip Man and Bruce Lee. It is a principle-based, close-range martial art, one that teaches students to control their opponents as quickly and as efficiently as possible. Wing Chun practitioners are able to neutralise their opponents by employing simple blocking and parrying techniques, redirecting energy, and making use of structural and positional tactics to gain and maintain an advantage. Wing Chun is therefore suitable for men and women of all ages, builds and abilities.
