Wing Chun Kung Fu is a Chinese style of self defence, which trains your body to react in a logical and intelligent way in combative situations. You learn by means of instinctive reflexes, to use your opponent’s strength to overpower him or her, even if this is superior to yours.
BRUCE LEE AND IP MAN
Wing Chun was developed by a woman in China, approximately 300 years ago. The style became especially well known through IP Man. He brought Wing Chun out of ‘closed’ China to Hong Kong. Several films have been made about, and inspired by, the life of IP Man. One of his pupils was the legendary Bruce Lee.
