About Wing Chun
It was created over 300 years ago by a nun named Ng Mui, a Buddhist Nun and Abbess from a Shaolin temple. She created the new style after observing a fight between a snake and a crane. Ng taught it to her student Yim Wing-Chun who the Martial Art is named after, it was taught to Yim as a way of defending herself against unwanted advances from a local war lord.
Wing Chun uses natural body movements and uses all of the body parts to attack with elbows, shoulders, fingers and knees, knowing when to tense and relax. It is a very aggressive but soft art form.
It uses quick bursts of direct movements and techniques to arm its aggressor to escape.
This martial art is based on simplicity, relaxed power through softness, yielding and controlling, chi flow and natural responses.
Wing Chun’s principles go with the flow of energy rather than forcing against it.
The practitioner uses relaxed softness to overcome an opponent’s force, which makes it ideal for women to learn as self defence.
Late Great Grandmaster Ip Man, described the art of Wing Chun as used “to maintain one’s flexibility and softness, all the while keeping in the strength to fight back, much like the flexible nature of bamboo”.
Notable practitioners of Wing Chun include Ip Chun, Bruce Lee, Donnie Yen, Brandon Lee, Jackie Chan, Robert Downey Jr., Jason Statham, Nicholas Cage and Christian Bale.
