The Wing Chun system we teach is particularly rich and includes detail, energy work and complexity not much found elsewhere. However the core forms and system are what leads to development of the additional material. The basics and core principles of Wing Chun remain central to our teaching, and the principles of efficiency, simultaneous attack and defence, and centreline theory are fairly quick and easy to grasp and apply.
Wing Chun is simply a journey that once begun can be continued indefinitely. As my Sifu says “there are no secrets to kung fu, it is just training” kung fu means ‘a skill acquired through hard work’.
Core Hand/Leg forms: Siu Lim Tao (little idea). Chium Kiu (seeking bridge). Bil Jee (shooting fingers). Muk Yan Jong (116 wooden man).
Subsidiary/intermediate forms and training sets: 1st and second syllabus training sets. Jheen Choi (arrow punch). Sar Bao Kuen (sand bag).Sup Lok Gerk Faat (16 Kicking).

A wide variety of individual techniques, pair drills, static and mobile practice methods, footwork, sparring, Guo Sao (Chi Sao sparring), pressure point, and self defence techniques etc. are introduced and developed as a part of a gradual developmental program.
