Wing Chun, like many of the Kung Fu styles, has its origins in the famous Shaolin temple of China. Kung Fu was taught there because it provided an efficient form of defence against bandits. It also served to strengthen the body and mind in preparation for the meditation practices undertaken by the monks and nuns. You can read more about the origin of Wing Chun by clicking here.
