Wing Chun is a system of Southern Chinese Kung Fu. It is a complete, thorough and detailed martial arts system. The key word here is system, the art gives you the tools you need not only to be a greater fighter with the ability to truly defend yourself, but skills needed to take control of your everyday life and make the decisions that are right for you. That is what it is truly about the core philosophy taking control of your life.
Why it Works so Well
This brillant art form works great for anyone as it is based on concepts and principles of economy of movement and energy. Doing the absolute simplest actions with the most maximum effect. It does not use blocks rather utilizes deflection and redirection. If you are attacked then you should expect they are prepared, not alone, armed and dangerous and yes bigger and stronger. Little weak people do not go around attacking others by themselves. So tactics that rely on brute strength won’t work.
