Wing Chun kung fu is one of the most famous styles of Kung Fu. It is taught world-wide and has many variations. It is characterised as a close range system by most and due to it’s functionally it does not work fitness levels as much as most other styles. The main principles of the style are directness, efficiency and simplicity although simple does not mean easy.
According to history Wing Chun was created after the burning of the Shaolin Temple by one of the five elders, Ng Miu, a buddhist nun who escaped. Ng Miu eventually taught a young girl called Yim Wing Chun. The system was named after Yim Wing Chun when passed to the next generation.
Wing Chun is all about efficiency and according to history each generation has refined the system into what we have today.
How we train at Moi Fa
Our classes focus on the traditional Wing Chun skills but we believe that the skills should be useable from day one. At your first class you will be taught practical techniques and tactics that can be applied in self defence.
Once you have the basic skills we like to train them in a functional and modern way. We use a series of two person drills and also use focus mitts and other equipment for impact training and to develop functional fitness, timing and distance.
Why train with us?
The head teacher, Sifu Tennet has been training in Wing Chun since 1985 and been teaching since 1993. Along with his senior students, the Moi Fa Academy has taught Wing Chun to thousands of people with some of them going onto other styles and even teaching Wing Chun themselves.
Just like the Plum flower (Moi Fa), we are continually growing and persisting in our aim for perfection. Sifu Tennet has researched Wing Chun all over the world including frequent visits to China for the last 20 years.
“You will be taught genuine, practical and complete Wing Chun with honesty from the heart”
