Wing Chun

Wing Chun is a Chinese martial arts system of Kung Fu. It focuses on unarmed, close-range combat and practical applications for self-defence. Wing Chun specializes in efficiency of motion through simultaneous attack and defence (using one hand to redirect while striking with the other hand).

The Wing Chun system stresses relaxation, limiting risk, use of balance, body structure, and redirection of force and protection of the centreline. This is why, at the Canadian WingChun Fellowship, we focus on teaching Wing Chun through the use of good body mechanics and the laws of physics.

Wing Chun consists of three empty hand forms: Sil Lim Tao, Chum Kil and Biu Tze, as well as one Wooden Dummy Form.

Training also includes a partner drill called Chi Sau or “Sticky Hands”. Chi Sau allows the student to apply techniques from the three empty hand forms in a dynamic laboratory. This allows them to develop sensitivity to incoming forces at the same time. In addition to partner drills, there are foundational drills and footwork drills.

Wing Chun teaches principles rather than just techniques. This lets the student respond to any hostile action without memorizing hundreds of responses.

We promote a fun, relaxed learning environment with both traditional and modern training. We encourage everyone to work at their own pace while seeking to improve. Our goal is to improve mentally, physically and spiritually while learning valuable self-defense.
