Wing Chun & Boxing
Wing Chun is a straight to the point martial art, using economy of motion, centre line theory, trapping and multiple strikes to nullify attacks. It’s a fairly recent martial art (only 300 to 400 years old) although the original roots of Kung Fu can be traced much further back. Wing Chun was made famous by the late great Bruce Lee, who used many of its principles as the basis of his own art Jeet June Do. Western boxing needs no introduction, but suffice to say the footwork and punching techniques compliment Wing Chun extremely well. For the first hour of lessons we concentrate on boxing, padwork and technical sparring and the second hour on Wing Chun.
