Concepts of Wing Chun

Wing Chun is a close range form of martial arts that uses economy of movement, shortest distance and the fastest way to subdue or deter an attacker. It was introduced by a Buddhist Nun called Ng Mui who was inspired by confrontation between a crane and a snake.


The style was named after her first student family name and passed down through generations; it spread and made its mark in the Futshan province in the Kwangtung area. It then ended up in Hong Kong, where it became one of the most popular martial arts worldwide. Wing Chun is a practical martial art that directly deals with incoming attacking energy.
