What is Wing Chun?

Wing Chun (詠春) is a close-range standing style of martial art. Like other styles it uses technique to overcome opponents that have superior strength.

It was developed in southern China approximately 300 years ago, and is widely thought of as the first style to be created by a woman-the Buddhist nun Ng Mui (伍枚).

Its primary aim is to quickly strike the same point multiple times in order to stop your aggressor.

A recent screen interpretation of the style can be seen in the ‘Ip Man’ movies starring Donnie Yen. The style was also studied by Bruce Lee early on in his martial arts career.
