More About Wing Chun Kung Fu

Wing Chun is a Chinese style of Kung-Fu that was made famous by students of Grandmaster Yip Man (Ip Man), such as Bruce Lee, William Cheung, and Wong Shun Leung. It came to prominence due to Yip Man's students winning a large number of challenge matches (beimo) against kung-fu masters and muay-thai fighters in the 1950's and 60's.  Ip Man stated that if one of his students lost a fight after learning the second Wing Chun form he's jump off the roof of a building.  Since then Wing Chun has become one of the most practiced Martial Arts in the world. It focuses on simple, direct, and efficient attacks and defenses.

You will notice that Wing Chun varies greatly from person to person (or from lineage to lineage), even though many people all trained under Yip Man. This is due to the way Yip Man taught at different stages of his life, the understanding of the student, and the personal interpretation of the student. Wing Chun is a kung-fu style based on theory rather than technique, and thus very customizable to the individual practitioner. There are also a number of Non-Yip Man lineages of Wing Chun that are very good.

The System's Components

The main empty-hand forms in Wing Chun are Sil Lum Tao (Little Idea Form), Chum Kiu (Searching Bridge), and Biu Jee (Shooting Fingers). There is also a Wing Chun wooden dummy form (Mook Yan Jong), and the Wing Chun weapons forms for the Butterfly Swords (Bart Jaam Do) and Long Pole (Luk Dim Boon Kwan, or dragonpole). Wing Chun also has a tripodial form (for kicks), and many other minor components that vary throughout the different lineages.

Wing Chun is also known for its Chi Sao sensitivity drill, also known as "sticky hands", and lesser known Chi Gerk (or "sticky legs") which enable the practitioner to fight by the sense of touch alone and cover his or her openings while striking the opponent. You will also find conditioning, Iron Palm Training and Mui Fa (Plum Flower Post) training in many Wing Chun lineages as well.

Books and DVD videos are available on all of these major components of the system as well as wing chun techniques, sparring/fighting, self-defense, history, philosophy, theory, drills, ground fighting and more. We also carry home study programs if you don't have a school near by and a number of rare seminars. We have any training equipment and weapons you might need to practice this incredible martial art and a variety of other merchandise including: dit-da-jow, training rings, hanging bags, t-shirts, artwork, rare collectibles, and our famous wall bags.

About the Different Spellings of "Wing Chun"

You will notice that the name of the art is spelled many different ways (Wing Chun, Ving Tsun, Weng Chun, Wing Tsun, Wing Tsjun, Wing Tzun, Wing Tjun, Vinh Xuan, etc).  The original spelling was Wing Chun (and this is still the most common spelling used across all lineages).  This was later supposedly changed to Ving Tsun due to the fact that the British that were occupying Hong Kong were making fun of the initials WC, which refers to "Water Closet" or a bathroom.  The spelling was supposed suggested by Wong Shun Leung or Yip Man.  The Ving Tsun Athletic Association in Hong Kong, which was established in 1967, was the first to use this spelling.

By using different spellings, organizations and schools generally want to indicate that they have a certain trademarked version of the system.  Wing Tsun was Leung Ting's way of trademarking his style of the art, and the Wing Tjun, Wing Tsjun, Wing Tzun's etc are all students of that lineage that broke away and still teach.  Weng Chun is an older lineage of the art taught in China, and Vinh Xuan is the Vietnamese lineage. "Traditional Wing Chun" is William Chung's trademarked version of the art.

Although the spellings above reflect different Wing Chun lineages much of the spelling differences within the system itself are simply due to a lack of standardization in the romanization of the Chinese words.  The Chinese writing consists only of symbols. The different spellings have arisen by translating the consonance of the Chinese character to a Western phonetical alphabet.
