Belts and Progression

Considering the young age of this cohort, we believe that rank advancements should be based on attendance. Hence, all students will receive a certificate of completion of each training phase and the appropriate new rank. We wish to develop ‘Goal Setting’ behaviour from an early stage. Hence, a Patch Program will accompany rank promotions, in order to develop additional early life, safety and Martial Arts skills.

Kids Classes

We believe that Martial Arts should raise a child’s self esteem and build character and confidence. In order to achieve these qualities we have developed a range of training programs that address the different needs of children at different developmental stages (i.e. ages) of their early lives. Our training programs promote additional life and interpersonal skills, as well as traditional Martial Arts values and success. Your child will be exposed to many positive traits and values of Martial Arts: Self […]

Grand Master Yip Man

Next in the lineage was Leung Lan Kwai, a herbalist by profession, who introduced the Iron Palm training into the system. Leung Lan Kwai passed his knowledge to Leung Lee Tai, who then passed it on to Leung Jan, a famous herbal doctor in Fatshan. Leung Jan was famous for his Iron Palm technique. Leung Jan had chosen his sons, Leung Bak and Leung Chuen, as his successors. However, a neighbouring money changer, Chan Wa Soon, was greatly interested in […]

Shortly thereafter, a salt (or silk) merchant from Shangxi named Leung Bok Cho visited the area. Leung Bok Cho had been a student of Kung Fu at the Honan Shaolin Temple. He stayed at an inn next to Yim Yee’s shop, and witnessed Wing Chun practising her Kung Fu beside the tofu grinders. He fell in love with this beautiful and skilful young woman, and soon, with Yim Yee’s approval, they were married. Wing Chun passed on her skills to […]

Yim Wing Chun

Ng Mui was the principal contributor in the restructuring of Shoalin Kung Fu in terms of simplifying it to accommodate the minimal time span in which they had to train proficient fighters for the revolution. Her ideas of close quarter combat were completely different from those around at the time. Discarding many of the animal forms (although it is thought she was partly influenced in developing Wing Chun after watching a battle between a crane and a snake) she began […]

The Beginnings of Wing Chun

The Wing Chun system of martial arts was developed in southern China approx. 250-300 years ago. Wing Chun Kung fu is just one of many martial arts whose origins are to be found in Southern China. Compared with other arts it is a relatively new style. Often interpreted as a soft style, Wing Chun is in fact a blend of both hard and soft techniques, owing to the fact that it was developed by a woman and refined in the […]

THE WING CHUN WEAPONS FORM

The Wing Chun weapons may have been a practical for combat in the old days, but in modern times training with weapons lends to a more sophisticated method of training and developing Wing Chun skills. Training with the Wing Chun weapons can enhance a practitioners empty hand skills by developing power through the weight training aspect of the practice, and even develop further timing and speed through the freestyle sparing aspect. The knife has direct parallels in the empty hand […]
