Originating in Southern China but made popular in the West by the teaching of Grandmaster Ip Man from the 1950s onwards in Hong Kong, Wing Chun Kung Fu (also known as Ving Tsun) is one of the most popular forms of Chinese martial art in the world today.
Wing Chun is a Chinese martial art that develops the mind and body through learning simple and effective self-defence. It is a practical, efficient and economic system that emphasises an understanding of natural body mechanics when dealing with an opponent, and not the use of sheer muscular force.
The benefits of learning Kung Fu include:
Better flexibility, strength, and coordination.
Improved mental wellbeing, self-esteem, and confidence.
Chinese Health Exercises, known as Qi Gong (pronounced ‘Chi Gong’), have been practiced by people from all aspects of Chinese society for thousands of years from martial artists and spiritual practitioners to those looking to maintain or improve their health.
The key difference between Qi Gong and most other forms of exercise is the intimate connection created between the mind, breath and body during practice. Refining our posture, alignments and breathing allows the practitioner to improve the efficiency of their own energetic body, benefiting their health and creating a deeper internal awareness so often missing in our busy daily lives.
