Wing Chun Kung Fu
UNDER THE FRANCIS FONG WING CHUN INSTRUCTOR ASSOCIATION
A Chinese street fighting art that was invented by a woman who devised a system of basic leverage and body position to take down a larger or muscular attacker. This art is devised to end a fight quickly focusing on only hitting the centerline of the human body where majority of the vital points can be found. Wıng Chun also teaches a student strıkıng, trappıng, and grapplıng ranges and how to transıtıon between them smoothly wıthout effort. The Wıng Chun classes are taught by Sıfu Raja at the Academy.
Through the use of solo forms, training equipment such as the wooden dummy and focus mitts, as well as two man drills, students develop attributes of body coordination, sensitivity and leverage to apply the principles of Wing Chun in all situations including trapping, grappling and punching/kicking.
“Wing Chun became well known in the US largely because of Bruce Lee. It was the first art he studied and loved. In fact, he trained in it for a total of 10 years. Bruce Lee was rather famous for his ability to send a person sailing with his “inch punch”. He learned that hand trick from Wing Chun.”
“Intuition tells us that hitting hard requires blows that swing wide and far, accompanied by manly grunts and much determination. The truth is actually the exact opposite. Power comes from position, timing, and (counter-intuitively) relaxation [and that is Wing Chun].” — Ethos C.
