Wing Chun is a pressure based Martial Art originating from southern China.
It uses comprehension of pressure to read threat and produce automatic responses in the individual using feeling as a guide.
It gained popularity in the 1970’s after it was publicised as Bruce Lees mother art.
It has gained a resurgence of interest in recent years through many movie representations and also a relaxing of attitudes concerning the transmission of the art making it much easier for the student to aquire and develop.
It is famous for both its efficiency and speed of delivery operating to quash violent confrontation in minimal time frame.
Ip Man, John Wick, The Matrix, and The Bourne Identity movies all contain Wing Chun-esque representations of combat.
Wing Chun Kung Fu has a variety of lineages (approaches). Wing Chun under Sifu John Lobb represents the Wong Shun Leung / Gary Lam Lineage and a true pedigree.
