What is Wing Chun Kung Fu

It is said that Wing Chun Kung Fu was founded by Grandmaster Ng Mei, an elderly Buddhist nun in the Ching Dynasty. As she was getting old and weak, she decided to design a Kung Fu style for those who are not strongly built to overpower big and strong guys in an effortless way. Thus a new Kung Fu style was created. It emphasizes on good posture and mind-control, which are essential to generate enormous power. The style was first passed to Ms Yim Wing Chun and then onward to other people, and, “Wing Chun” was named after her. It was until Master Yip Man started his Wing Chun classes in Hong Kong that this secretive martial arts became known to the world.

Wing Chun Kung Fu is highly tactical and relies very much on leverage theories. Its unique training of “sticking hands” not only builds up sensitivity, prompt and direct reflective action, but also sharpens the mind and nurtures “Qi” throughout the body. This style of Kung Fu is good for all ages and both men and women.

詠春拳簡介

詠春拳相傳於清朝由少林五枚師太所創,由於當時五枚師太年事已高,體力日益衰退,又兼是女性,力量自是遜於男性,是以構思創出一門以簡單架式而能發揮強韌結構,以意念為推動力,結合二者能發揮強大力量的拳術。首傅予嚴詠春女士因而得名,一脈至今,再經由葉問宗師廣傳至世界各地。

詠春拳術善于利用技巧,力學原理,作有效的攻防練習,習者能透過獨特的黐手對鍊,培養自然敏銳之反應,啟發智慧之餘,更能瞭解身體的知操控,且運動量適合各人不同之體質,男女均宜練習,實是一門優秀的國粹。
