As a way of life, Wing Chun has benefited me greatly. It has helped discipline my mind and body, ease needless negative emotions, instilled a sense of confidence, and in general made me a much better person. I have seen similar effects in others who see practice as an oasis in their lives. An oasis from the stress and fatigue of day-to-day living because wing chun forces you to be relaxed and in the moment. A wing chun practitioner is not concerned with winning or losing at anything; rather they do the best they can in a moment; and improve on that in the next moment. There is no competition as in; got to beat the other guy!!—which is shunned. Instead the competition is within oneself; being better than you were yesterday; better than you were a moment ago. Wing Chun is a constant and mindful process of self-improvement physically, mentally, and spiritually. As a fighting art Wing Chun excels at closing with and disabling an opponent with the least amount of effort in the shortest amount of time. Our techniques primarily target vital areas such as the eyes, throat, collar bones, joints, knees, ankles, and insteps. We operate by dominating the centerline with short yet powerful kicks and punches. In a fight, one could expect to receive 6 or more strikes/techniques per second against a competent wing chun practitioner. There are no absolutes in wing chun. While Wing Chun training starts in a very technical and structured regimen. Over time, the technical and structural aspects blur into a flow of interconnected and independent motion that exists as necessary for a moment before it changes as necessary for the next moment. Early form diminishes for adaptability to meet circumstance; ever evolving until motion is no longer necessary.
