Understand the CLOSE RANGE COMBAT Concepts and Principles of WING CHUN KUNG FU.
The Kung Fu Life is about having the fitness to do whatever you want to do. It is being aware, alert and focused. And it is living fearlessly, confident that you have the ability to defend yourself.
Wing Chun is a simple but effective method of self-defense based in the traditional Chinese martial arts of Kung Fu. It is a relatively young system, but in the last few hundred years it has spread to every corner of the Earth because it is practical, can be learned in a short period of time, and can be practiced by people of all sizes and ranges of physical ability.
Wing Chun has no delusions of being the "ultimate martial art." There is no sport or competitive aspect, the forms are not aesthetically pretty like traditional animal-style Kung Fu, and no one takes home shiny trophies. Wing Chun was primarily designed for one thing, and one thing only: allow you to defend yourself against a violent assault. With that purpose in mind, Wing Chun evolved to work best in a very specific set of circumstances:
Although rooted in the arts and traditions of the Shaolin Temple, Wing Chun was not meant to be practice by monks. Rather, the grandmasters of Wing Chun were everyday people with jobs and families. Therefore, Wing Chun was designed to be practical, but also be learned and maintained even by people with busy lives.
“Mastering an art is really about mastering yourself.”
– Sifu Francis Fong
