Wing Tsung or Wing Chun is an efficient concept-based Chinese martial art and form of self-defense utilizing both striking and grappling while specializing in close-range combat. Wing Tsung was developed to allow people to defend themselves even against bigger and stronger opponents and that prides itself in its practical nature, with no references to mythical creatures or animal movements. Its applications are often described as being simple, but not easy. Though seemingly soft, Wing Tsung attitude is aggressive in both defense and offense.
Wing Tsung is self defense in it’s most uncompromising form. Employing simple and clever self-defense methodology and concepts without complicated techniques, it’s a fast, simple and effective system. Wing Tsun teaches the ability to overcome larger, stronger opposition with the least amount of effort using body integrity, balance and mind-over matter common-sense techniques.
The principle focus of Wing Tsung is in defending against your attacker and in ending the confrontation as quickly as possible, while limiting the damage to any involved parties. The main objective of Wing Tsung is to be a realistic system of self-defense. Wing Tsung does not focus on fighting “techniques”, instead relying on fighting and energy principles to be followed at all times. The central idea is that, under pressure, it is impossible to visually recognize the precise direction and speed of an attack and make a conscious decision on an effective way in which to react, all within the very brief amount of time you have before your opponent’s attack lands. Rather, one must (counter) attack immediately in a very direct and protected manner and rely on reflexes to determine how to react if the opponent’s attack continues to pose a problem.
