What is Wing Chun Kung Fu

Sifu MillerThe Chinese martial art system based on redirection and manipulation of an opponent's force. Wing Chun was created by a Shaolin Nun over 300 years ago and first introduced in the United States by Bruce Lee ( Wing Chun's famous "one-inch punch" was made famous by the late great "Bruce Lee"). Wing Chun teaches an effective means of fighting against a larger and stronger opponent. Techniques are considered to be highly advanced, in that the fighter simultaneously blocks and attacks. Students are taught the means to immobilize an attacker quickly and efficiently, using the structure of the entire body to create power in a small space. Wing Chun Kung Fu is a practical martial art as well as an ancient Chinese internal self defense system. Through discipline the determined practitioner can improve their mental, internal, and physical awareness, and well-being. Proper positioning will overcome sheer strength; so much of a Wing Chun student's time is spent training his or her body to move precisely and efficiently through "Wooden Dummy" training. Wing Chun uses chi sao "Sticking Hands" training to develop precision and economy of motion.

Basic Techniques

Compact in structure, yet containing many of the elements essential to a good wing chun foundation, the sup yee sik are ideal for early training. They can be loosely grouped into three broad categories.

Wing Chun Forms

The forms are like an index; they provide a sequence of movements and different application(s) of the tools in the correct positions and how they should be applied.

Chi Sao

Chi sao (chi shou, sticking arms) is one of the most famed aspects of wing chun kuen. Like san sao, sticking arms is a dynamic and ever-changing laboratory through which wing chun kuen techniques are deconstructed and explored in application.

Wooden Dummy

Muk yan jong (mu ren zhuang, wooden dummy) is perhaps the most famous of the wing chun training aids. It is constructed to match the size of its intended user and is composed of a body post, two high-level arms, a single mid-level arm, and a low-level leg.
