Wing Chun is currently the most widely practiced form of Chinese Kung Fu in the world, although it was not openly taught on a class basis until the 1950’s. It has found major popularity in the east and the west as Wing Chun was Bruce Lee’s foundation art. More recently, it has gained additional popularity through the Ip Man movies.
As you can imagine, with so much popularity, and so many teachers, there are massive discrepancies concerning how Wing Chun is trained and realised from school to school. From a practical combative perspective, some methods are viable, some less so. You will find creation myths concerning the conception of Wing Chun all over the web. Strip back myths and legends, and you are left with a very practical scientific analysis of the human form specific to combative activity. Wing Chun draws from physics, mathematics, and geometry to augment physical form and guide human choices for efficient violent exchange.
