What is Wing Tsun?
Wing Tsun is self defense in its most uncompromising form.
Wing Tsun skills are built on the student's present abilities. Muscle power and conditioning are not prerequisites for training. Wing Tsun teaches a readiness to "listen" to one's body, to know one's strengths, and to use them rigorously when required. The power of Wing Tsun is to sharpen one's perception in a well-coordinated manner.
When men and women learn Wing Tsun, they develop a fresh, new awareness of their body and a heightened sense of confidence in all situations. This confidence, born of knowing one's capabilities, is acquired through intensive, regular, professional instruction.Wing Tsun - A game of Chess for Body and Mind
This newly acquired confidence and self-awareness leads to an increased sense of well being on all levels. Former personal limitations no longer restrict one's everyday life. Life becomes fuller, more satisfying. Students of Wing Tsun no longer feel like victims. This power alone lessens the likelihood of being in dangerous situations.
Should a threatening situation arise, WT students now command a highly effective, weaponless method of defending themselves and loved ones. Wing Tsun absorbs the attacker's energy, compounds it with the defender's own power, and directs it with increased ferocity against the offender.
The Wing Tsun principles are similar to the game of chess. The chess player is at one with his pieces and instinctively knows his or her opponent's next move.
A Wing Tsun student acts likewise; in action the student can "feel" an opponent's intentions and put sharpened reflexes to immediate use.Wing Tsun - Freedom Through Self-Defense
Wing Tsun improves the practitioner's existing strengths and sharpens their powers of perceptions. Once known, one's capabilities can be confidently put to use. Persons who learn Wing Tsun learn to know themselves. Wing Tsun never attacks - it is aggressive only in defense.

WT is intense and challenging. The ability to defend one's self is acquired through focused, regular practice.Wing Tsun - Power Training
At the center of Wing Tsun training stands a unique and variable technique which is learned through conscientious practice and purposeful engagement with a partner.
The basic training process teaches specific techniques for relaxation and concentration. These instructions are complemented with special breathing techniques for "refueling" the body.
Wing Tsun merges body and mind into a new powerful unit. Fluent motions and sudden explosive speed flow together in a systematic, coordinated, spontaneous sequence of movement. The study of Wing Tsun heightens physical and mental flexibility while improving awareness of self and environment.
The Origin of Wing Tsun
Wing Tsun is an ancient Chinese system of self-defense. It was developed by a woman approximately 250 years ago and named after her first student, the girl "Wing Tsun". Her name means "beautiful springtime" or "eternal spring". The goal was to provide civilians in civil strife with a practical and effective, yet quickly learnable, self-defense method.Wing Tsun - Philosophy in Action
Wing Tsun grew out of the Taoist tradition in eastern thinking. In Chinese philosophy, "Tao" means "The Way". It signifies life's eternal movement of growing, blooming, fading away and never-ending renewal. To achieve his unity with the Tao, man must become as the Tao: spontaneous, open, simple, and flexible - not hard and arrogant.
When using Wing Tsun in self-defense or applying its principles in every day life, one becomes like a river flowing to the sea. Even if the mountain obstructs the river's flow, it will not be stopped. It will reach its goal naturally, unavoidably, while overcoming all obstacles on the way.
