Wing Chun Kung Fu
According to the UK Wing Chun Kung Fu Assoc, Wing Chun Kuen, or as it is commonly known Wing Chun Kung Fu, is just one of many styles of martial art whose origins are to be found in Southern China and, compared to other arts, is a relatively new style. Wing Chun Kung Fu is known as a ‘soft’ style, but is, in fact, a blend of both hard and soft techniques.
This blending of hard and soft is due to the fact that a sensible balance is necessary. Mimicking animal movements is particularly common in Chinese martial arts and some systems, even copy the animal idiosyncrasies.
However, Wing Chun Kuen is devised with the human structure in mind and relies on the strategies of the encounter. We would not try to be a snake or a crane.
Wing Chun Is Based on Three Principles, Namely:
- Simultaneous Defence and counterattack by Interception
- Economy of motion in every technique
- Centre line
