Wing Chun is a martial art. As such, the training is structured, disciplined and can be physically and mentally demanding. Obviously, we will take into account individual levels of fitness, but as the student progresses the training demands will increase.  It is important, therefore, that you see your doctor should you have any concerns about your health or fitness levels and, of course, that you let us know if you have any particular health concerns.

 

As Wing Chun is a martial art, discipline and respect run through the heart of our training philosophy. Any student not abiding by these principles will be asked to leave the School.

 

Adult students follow a structured training programme, which introduces them systematically to the core techniques of Wing Chun, broadly including: various stances and footwork, blocks and evasion techniques, open hand strikes, elbow strikes, kicks and knee strikes.  Students will practice the techniques individually, with a training partner and with training equipment (pads and shields).

 

At the appropriate stages of their training (and after demonstrating sufficient dedication and commitment) students are also taught the three Wing Chun empty hand forms: 

 

  • Siu Nim Tao ("Little Idea");
  • Chum Kil ("Seeking the Bridge"); and
  • Bil Jee ("Flying Fingers")

 

At the appropriate stages of their training (and after demonstrating sufficient dedication and commitment) students are also taught the two Wing Chun equipment forms:

 

  • The sandbag; and
  • The Mok Jong ("Wooden Dummy")

 

The adult curriculum also includes the three stages of chi sao ("sticking hands") training and chi gerk ("sticking legs") training unique to Wing Chun:

 

  • Lap Sao;
  • Dan Chi Sao (single arm sticking hands); 
  • Sheung Chi Sao (double arm sticking hands); and
  • Chi Gerk (sticking legs)

 

Advanced students (after demonstrating sufficient dedication and commitment) will also be taught the two Wing Chun weapon forms:

 

  • Luk Dim Boon Kwan ("Six and a half point pole"); and
  • Bart Cham Doa ("Butterfly Knives")
