Wing Chun Kung Fu


Wing Chun Kung Fu from within its many families around the world remains one of the most effective Martial Arts to date. Developed, and refined in the Shaolin Temples of China, tested in the streets of Hong Kong, Wing Chun Kung Fu has stood the test of time. With schools around the world, it is easily accessible to those with the resolve, and dedication. Buddhist in nature, Wing Chun Kung Fu lends to the ideal, strike second, but hit first, also that those of mastery will be so effective in combat they may be merciful, to the opponent if they choose to.
