What is Wing Chun?

Wing Chun 詠春 Kung Fu is a martial arts system that originated in Southern China.  It was created by a female nun, Ng Moi and was later modified by Grandmaster Ip Man in Hong Kong.  Bruce Lee, the world’s most recognized martial artists, popularized Wing Chun in the United States during the middle of the twentieth century, and additionally used the art as the foundation of his particular fighting style and philosophy, Jeet Kuen Do.  More recently, the success of the Ip Man movies rekindled interest in Wing Chun across the world. 

Wing Chun Kung Fu is a system of self-defense and empowerment based on Principles and Concepts that can be applied in both scopes.  As a system of self-defense, the art makes use of scientific principles to overcome force of a bigger and stronger opponent. Additionally, it utilizes short-range power and sensitivity of touch, as seen through the use of Chi Sau or Sticky Hands.  

The Core Principles of Wing Chun are Relaxation, Center-line, Economy, Facing and Yin/Yang.  Great emphasis is placed on concepts of efficiency, structure, power, and speed. Wing Chun makes use of quick, changing angles, simultaneous attack and defense, agile footwork and low, practical kicks. 

Wing Chun’s open hand forms are Siu Lim Tao  (Little Idea Form), Chum Kiu (Seeking the Bridge Form), and Biu Gee (Thrusting Fingers Form).  The Wing Chun weapons are the Luk Dim Boon Kwun (6 1/2 Point Long Pole), and the Baat Cham Do (Eight Cutting Knives).  We also practice form on the Wing Chun Wooden Dummy.  

Wing Chun’s traditional training equipment are the Wing Chun Wooden Dummy, Tripodal (Kicking) Dummy, and Wall Bag.

Due to the Covid-19 virus, we are unable to teach Wing Chun at our location in Long Beach, Ca. 

It is our priority to keep our Wing Chun students and the Long Beach community safe.  Abiding by the orders of the California governor and the protocol put forth by California Department of Public Health is important to us. When we are able to teach with full contact safely, we will re-open the kwoon.

Siu Lim Tao

Siu Lim Tao is the primary open hand form of Ip Man Wing Chun Kung Fu.  Why was it named “little idea”?  Ip Man alludes to the necessity of the concentration of practice in the form, as well as the disconnection of thought.  In this case, the definition of 小 may mean “few” or few thoughts.
