Wing Chun is a style of Kung Fu that originates in China, later refined in Hong Kong. Its specialty lies in realistic self defense and close-quarters combat. By using quick punches and low kicks with a tight defense, students are able to make a quick advance. The effectiveness of Wing Chun is achieved by well coordinated attacks with simultaneous defense.
Many self-defense experts consider Wing Chun as their personal choice of hand-to-hand combat. i The most important lesson that the Wing Chun student must learn is to deliver the correct amount of energy. Most of all, they must stay as relaxed as possible. Students learn to overcome force with positioning and footwork rather than meeting it head on. Wing Chun classes also teach kicks and sweeps, palm strikes, elbows and knees. In addition, trapping and grappling control techniques are part of the fighting arsenal.
