Wing Chun (or Ving Tsun) is a martial arts system developed a few hundred years in ancient China.
In Hong Kong, it is known to be a gentlemen's martial art due to it's simple refined movements that
did not require the raw power found in other hard style martial arts. In the West, it is known to be
an effective street fighting martial art due to it's aggressive, efficient and direct approach.
Wing Chun was unknown outside of China, until a man named Yip Man (葉問) started teaching it publicly
in Hong Kong from the 1940's to the early 1970's.
One of Yip Man's most famous student was movie star Bruce Lee (李小龍).
Today, Wing Chun is one of the most widely practiced Kung Fu styles worldwide.
Recently, Wing Chun's popularity has exploded because of the many
Ip Man (Yip Man) movies made.
In the Yip Man system of Wing Chun, training includes learning solo three hand forms, a "wooden-man" form, the Dragon Pole,
the Butterfuly knives and partner drills & sparring.
