Frequently Asked Questions


 

"What makes Wing Chun the ultimate fighting style?"

Short Answer: It's not.  Here's why:

A Deeper Look:

As human beings, we are all born with the same "weapons": hands, legs, elbows, knees, shoulders, head, etc. We all have the same fundamental bodily structure and mechanics. We are all bound by the laws of physics and, in the context of a fight, we all have the same basic goals. Despite these similarities, there are many different martial arts. Every fighting art has its inherent strengths and weaknesses. It is very common for martial artists and fans of martial arts to debate over whether certain approaches to fighting are superior to others. This is all talk, hypothetical. Fighting does not happen in theory. In reality, in any particular fight the person who is better prepared and able to continually adapt to take advantage of the situation at hand is the person who will prevail. While one of the benefits of martial arts training is developing confidence, it should also cultivate humility and respect for others who train diligently in their respective arts.

"Do you teach traditional Wing Chun?"

Short Answer:  I teach Wing Chun as it has been taught to me by SiFu Allan Lee (Lee Che Kong), who teaches the art as it was taught to him by SiFus Lok Yiu, Yip Man, and Duncan Leung. If tradition is "the transmission of customs or beliefs from generation to generation", then the simply answer to this question for our organization is "Yes". However, I find this particular question to be rather misleading. Here's why:

A Deeper Look:

Even if you have no previous first-hand experience with Wing Chun, you have probably already formed an opinion of what Wing Chun "is" based on past research (movies, internet searches, books, videos, etc.). Continue Reading...
