Description & Hours of Operations
The system of Chinese boxing known as Wing Chun Kuen has a colourful history indeed. Named after the lady (Yim) Wing Chun, combined with the third character, 'Kuen' (Fist), Wing Chun Kuen means 'Fist of Wing Chun', or, the 'Fighting Fist of Wing Chun'.
In Hong Kong it was also called 'Lightning Hands Kung Fu', while in some quarters it was known as 'Gangster Fist'.
Kevin Earle's keen interest in the art of Wing Chun led to him establishing the first Chinese martial art school in New Zealand. Never faltering in his passion for the art, his personal training has led him to the conclusion that Wing Chun is more than a 'Fighting Fist'; he concludes it truly is invincible.
Using the English spelling favored by his teacher, Kevin now prefers to describe the art of 'Ving Chun Kuen', as the 'Art of Invincibility'
