TEACHING SYSTEM AND SYLLABUS OUTLINE   

We aim to conduct classes in a friendly and productive atmosphere ensuring that the classes are enjoyable but also mentally and physically stimulating. By providing a more personal level of teaching we aim to provide a better understanding on the part of the student. Students are encouraged to ask intelligent and analytical questions. Wing Chun is a 'thinking persons' martial art.

Wing Chun is an art which is easy to learn yet extremely difficult to master. However, with persistence and determination, all students have the potential to reach that level. Wing Chun should not be looked upon as a rigid system to be blindly followed. It is flexible and adaptable to individual requirements as all true art forms are.

There is no overnight success formula but with time and effort, Wing Chun will provide students with all they could want from a martial art.

Our syllabus is endorsed and approved by the International Wing Chun Academy and all grading and qualifications are recognised by that respected organisation.
