What is Wing Chun


Wing Chun originated from southern China in the early Qing dynasty.

Created by an already talented martial artist, an Abbess called Ng Mui, it is said to have been formed based on the sightings of a fight between a snake and a crane.

After forming the fighting system considerably, Ng Mui passed the art onto a lady called Yim Wing Chun to help her protect herself against a warlord’s impending forced marriage.

After defeating the warlord, she later taught the art to her true love Leung Bok Chaun, whom she later married.

Ng Mui later named the art after her friend, and first student, Yim Wing Chun, which means “eternal springtime”.
