Wing Chun ("Forever Springtime") is named after the first student of this style of kung fu, taught to her by a Shaolin Buddhist nun.
Wing Chun is the martial art that Bruce Lee first studied, and it is the basis for his own style. Straightforward and economical, Wing Chun never wastes movement or time, which is why it is nicknamed "Lightning Fist" in Hong Kong. Since it is designed to redirect the opponent's force with the least effort, Wing Chun is a perfect style for women or men who may be smaller than their opponents. This skill is trained through constant practice in chi sao, a hands-on interaction with another person. (The photo shows Yip Man teaching chi sao to Bruce Lee.)
Wing Chun is not a sport, or a performance art. It is designed and taught as a fighting system. This makes it an excellent choice for anyone who wants to learn an effective and practical approach to self-defense.
Chun is being taught in the Lansing area by an instructor trained by
Yip Ching, youngest son of Grandmaster Yip Man.
