Wing Chun training is suitable for both adults and children. Open and free dialogue between students and instructors is encouraged to enhance the understanding behind the method. Apart from the form work, instruction is hands-on with lots of partner work. Once the student has achieved the beginner curriculum, they will be invited to participate in open sticky hands sessions (chi sao). It is recommended that you attend the 10:30 – 11:30 am session at the Greenlane Presbyterian Church for introductory lessons which is on the corner of Great South Road and Greenlane Road. Parking available in the church.
While Wing Chun can be an effective and direct technical fighting method, the focus at our school will be on how to produce the maximum amount of force with the least effort. This is the foundation we will build before moving on to application. We will be practicing ways to make your hand and body structure strong (without relying on strength) so that it can both receive and issue great force. Once this fundamental is achieved, you will be able to apply the technical aspects of this art with much greater power and proficiency.
The effects are surprising and amazing. How we train to achieve this involves standing practice, doing the forms, chi sao (sticky hands with a partner) wooden dummy practice and structural tests. Practical application will also be covered, but without a good foundation in the structure of Wing Chun, techniques are often hollow and insubstantial.
