Academy of Wing Chun Kung Fu

What is Wing Chun?

It is a no nonsense Martial Art where you learn principles and techniques that you can use after just one lesson. Wing Chun teaches you how to punch and kick using your body structure, so you can beat a much larger and stronger attacker. All movements are highly effective and extremely fast, making Wing Chun’s whip like attacks one of the fastest to be seen in the Martial Arts. This makes Wing Chun Kung Fu an ideal Self Defence system for women, men and children of all ages . This is the system taught to the legendary Bruce Lee by Grandmaster Ip Man and the system that Bruce Lee taught his students when he first arrived in America.

Many Martial Arts take a long time; decades of training before you can become proficient. Training hard in martial arts classes, but it being of no use in a violent street attack is useless. Cartwheels, back flips, high kicks etc. take years of practice. Why spend years training to become a gymnast, when what you want is to learn how to win in a life threatening confrontation now.

We have beginners classes for adults, children and kids kung fu in Romford Essex,  for new students coming from all over Havering and Essex.

It is ideal for all people, regardless of size, gender and age in a modern world.  It’s first levels and methods of practice are about close combat, unarmed fighting and well known for its lightning fast attacks & short range power. There are different levels and training methods (known as Wing Chun Forms) attached to the learning of Wing Chun. They are:

Primary Level        Intermediate Level        Advanced Level

Once a new student has successfully completed their trial and been accepted into the school, they can begin their training on the the Primary level, Siu Lim Tao. This is the foundation of Wing Chun. Siu Lim Tao teaches students to focus on centre line theories, build good structure for each technique, as well as to help develop the important sinking energy that roots both feet into the ground. If the student fully understands and is capable of performing each technique at this level, they will be promoted to the Intermediate level, Chum Kiu and then the Advanced level, Biu Gee and Wooden Dummy Mok Yan Jong.

Then are the weapons, the 6 ½ Point Pole Lok Dim Boon Kwan form and the Butterfly knives form Baat Jam Doe.

The Advance students will also experience the blind folded Chi Sao training, which teaches the student how to feel the movements of their opponent and react instinctively with lightning fast reflexes. The Mok Yan Jong, ( the Wooden Dummy) conditions students to actually hit a real target. The dummy training further improves structure, angles of attack, and so much more. The pole form improves the strength of the wrists, thrusting power, and stances. The butterfly knives form improves the footwork speed, and striking power.
