Wing Chun Program
Wing Chun is a Chinese system of kung fu that specializes in developing dynamic, explosive and street-oriented practical self-defense. Originally developed by a woman, it relies on developing leverage and sensitivity rather than muscular strength to overcome an opponent. Training develops reflex speed, coordination and power to enable someone to quickly and effortlessly dispatch a larger and stronger attacker without relying on size or strength.
Through the use of solo forms, training equipment such as the wooden dummy and focus mitts, as well as two man drills, students develop attributes of body coordination, sensitivity and leverage to apply the principles of Wing Chun in all situations including trapping, grappling and punching/kicking.
Sifu Francis Fong is recognized as one of the top Wing Chun instructors in the world having originally learned Wing Chun in Hong Kong from Si-Gung Jiu Wan. For over thirty five years, Sifu Fong’s dynamic personality and explosive technique have inspired students of all ages and experience levels.
Our kickboxing program offers a blend of modified Wing Chun, Western Boxing, Muay Thai, Silat and Grappling Arts. The program is based on Jeet Kune Do concepts, blended curriculum from Sifu Francis Fong and techniques taught by Guro Dan Inosanto. The training is aimed to be functional in four ranges (Kicking, Punching, Trapping and Grappling), against anyone in all environments. A process of cross training, researching and developing ourselves with different disciplines of the most effective martial arts in the world is used to overcome the limitations of any single art. Cross training enables us to fill in the gaps and weaknesses that we might have.
Our kickboxing program is broken down into 9 different levels, which makes it very easy to implement into any type of martial art school.
