Wing Chun

Wing Chun is a fighting system that was collaborated from numerous Chinese Wushu into a “no nonsense” art that allowed less skilled fighters an opportunity to defeat higher trained martial artists. In order to keep its secrecy from the enemy, Wing Chun was only passed down to family members and close friends, until Grandmaster Yip Man decided to introduce it to the public.
