Is Wing Chun Hard to Learn?

Making the simple techniques a natural expression of your instinct to defend yourself. If you have a brain in your head and are willing to listen and do the drills and exercises you can learn Wing Chun. The hard part is applying what you learn in a high pressure violent conflict. Our school specialize in the development of aggressive offensive pressure. All students that earn rank here are capable of applying what they have learned under pressure in a real life conflict. At our school you won't just learn Wing Chun you will learn how to use it.
How Long does it take to learn Wing Chun?
Wing Chun is designed to give the student a fast rate of proficiency. While other traditional arts take 10 - 20 years to learn. The Wing Chun System can be learned in as little as 5-10 years depending on hours spent training. Students will be more than capable to defend themselves in 6-12 months.

Are there High Kicks in Wing Chun like other styles of Martial Arts such as karate or tae kwon do?
No. Wing Chun is primarily a hand style. Most kicks in the system are aimed at or below the knee. In Wing Chun kicking a persons head makes no more sense than punching there foot. Students are only taught to kick opponents in the head after they have already hit the ground
Is this a style suitable for children?
No, the Wing Chun System taught at our school is an aggressive violent method of life and death close range combat. It is not the patty cake that many franchises offer and is not suitable for children. All students must be 18yrs old and able to sign there own liability waiver.
The only exception that will be made is for family members of current students and Young Men and Women that are in an Early Enlistment program or Delayed Entry program for a branch of the U.S. Military
Do you even spar bro?
Yes. Students are not rushed into sparring before they are ready but every student at this school is expected to spar. Once students reach an intermediate level they should expect full contact sparring as well as full contact multi-man sparring. As often as possible we will invite or visit other schools for full contact sparring. Wing Chun is worthless is you can't fight with it. If you can't trust your Wing Chun to work in sparring you can't count your life on it in the streets.
What is different about this school compared to other wing chun schools?
We are not in any way connected to a franchise.

3-5 Years Learning Wing Chun at Ip Man's School was the only formal training Bruce Lee ever had. What he displayed in movies & what he practiced & taught were completely different. Bruce Lee began teaching Wing Chun almost as soon as he arrived in America. First calling it Jun Fan Wing Chun, Later Jun Fan Gung Fu. Having never completed the full system he felt there were gaps in his abilities. He later added aspects of boxing & fencing to create his own method of fighting, Jeet Kune Do.
