Wing Tsun Kuen Kung Fu is a simple and effective combat system that originated in Shaolin Monastery as the essence of the five Kung Fu styles taught there.
Due to its simplicity, Wing Tsun can be mastered very quickly. Due to its effectiveness, it is valued by anti-terrorist services, businessmen and delicately built women. Thanks to specialized training methods such as chisao and chikung, learning is safe, therefore Wing Tsun is practiced by over 1 million students in 66 countries.
Wing Tsun is the only combat system designed in such a way that it gives the smaller and weaker person a chance to get out of danger safely, even in a woman vs. man. This is the essence of the five Kung Fu systems taught in a Shaolin monastery, from which the effective, simple and useful, have been selected and unnecessary movements have been abandoned.
The system is characterized by a closed and compact stance, movements as short as possible, as well as fighting mainly in a short distance. Although it is classified as a hard (external) system, in reality the movements are dynamic, springy and certainly not forceful.
The strikes are usually delivered along the shortest line, while the leg techniques are dominated by low, fast and extremely effective kicks.
The Wing Tsun system is taught in special services, preferred by people with a delicate and slender body build (including women).
The training method characteristic of the style is Chi Sao (so-called Sticky Hands) – specialized training of the nervous system, which allows you to achieve extraordinary fighting skills in a relatively short learning time. This allows you to achieve an unprecedented effect when fighting with an opponent that is larger, stronger and trained in combat.
The Wing Tsun system was trained by Bruce Lee, who achieved an exceptionally high level of skill in the martial arts world.
The Wing Tsun of the Sijo Leung Ting message differs significantly from the “traditional” Chinese Kung Fu, it does not include movements imitating animals, it does not use complex systems. This style puts the greatest emphasis on the practical and effective use of simple techniques developed on the basis of the laws of physics and knowledge of human anatomy.
Other characteristics of Wing Tsun are:
1. Adapting techniques to combat the experts of other grasping and striking systems.
2. The concept of the system focused on the way of performing techniques that allow the end of the fight in a few seconds.
3. Chi Kung – exercises combining specific breathing with elements of stretching and isometry. Exercise is not exhaustive and can be practiced by people of all ages and levels of fitness.
