Ng Mui, Creator of Wing Chun

Wing Chun Kung Fu is a unique and effective martial art from Southern China that specializes in close range combat. It is the only martial art created and made famous by a woman.

About 300 years ago, Ng Mui, the Shaolin nun who developed the system, realized that most of the techniques in Shaolin Kung Fu were ineffective for a small woman to use against a larger, stronger man.

She also realized that a woman could not match a man’s stamina in a long fight. With this in mind, Ng Mui developed a system of self defense that enabled a smaller, weaker person such as herself to defeat a bigger, stronger person.

Efficiency in Wing Chun is based on the concept that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. Likewise its primary targets all lie along the centerline of one’s opponent.

Wing Chun training is designed according to individual situation, and therefore is suitable for both male & female of all ages. Movie Stars such as Bruce Lee, Sammo Hung, Donnie Yen and Stephen Chow were Wing Chun practitioners.

At our school we follow a style called Practical Wing Chun, created by Master Wan Kam Leung.
