Wing Tsun Kung Fu is a unique martial art system from Southern China and Hong Kong that specializes in extremely streamlined close range hand to hand self-defense skills. The focus is on close crowding movements, body relaxation, economy, and efficiency of movement.
Wing Tsun Kung Fu differs from other martial arts in that the punches and kicks have a built in tight wedge defensive structure to them. This means that usually there are no blocks at all. The attack is also the defense and that makes Wing Tsun Kung Fu more efficient and twice as fast than most other traditional striking martial arts. The footwork is quick, agile and devised for swiftly advancing, uprooting, and unbalancing the opponent.
But Wing Tsun Kung Fu is so much more than just learning how to defend yourself. Wing Tsun Kung Fu is a Martial Art with a slew of other amazing benefits that will start having an immediate impact on your health and well being. One extremely important key to health is staying active, moving your body, and keeping body joints pliable. Wing Tsun movement sets and exercises are ideal for keeping your body moving and your mind sharp. The terms Mind, Body, Spirit certainly apply here. Wing Tsun Kung Fu can also help you to improve the following:
Plus you get the added benefits of meeting new people, having a lot of fun learning, and mastering a skill that will improve your way of life. A great way to unwind your day and work on yourself. Wing Tsun Kung Fu could also come in handy one day should you ever need to physically defend yourself or your loved ones.
LESS IS MORE.
The fewer the techniques you know,
The fewer the decisions you have to
make under stress during an attack.
The right concept and it's uncompromising
execution is more important
than a collection of unrelated techniques.
--Master K. Kernspecht--
Wing Tsun Kung Fu is featured in the highly entertaining, and recommended 2008 martial arts action movie titled Ip Man. The movie features Hong Kong action actor Donnie Yen and is loosely based on the life of Grandmaster Ip Man. Wing Tsun is also the Kung Fu system that Bruce Lee studied as a teenager and which was the basis for his Jun Fan Gung Fu and Jeet Kune Do. The movie also has a sequel called Ip Man 2 and a prequel called Ip Man 3. For an idea of what Wing Tsun is all about watch the first movie!! Keep in mind that they are just movies and some exaggerated liberties were taken during the fight scenes and with the story line.
ANYBODY can learn Wing Tsun Kung Fu regardless of age or physical fitness level. Wing Tsun Kung Fu is ideal for teenagers and adults and is fun, easy, and safe to learn. Learning is progressive and incremental. Beginners get started slowly on basic stances, structure,footwork, and hand movements. Self-Defense tactics are introduced after the student has a basic grasp of the fundamental movements.
Chi Sau (sticky hands) training is typically taught soon after the student can perform the basic movements of Wing Tsun Kung Fu with reasonable competency.
Becoming proficient in Wing Tsun Kung Fu requires diligent practice but the reward is that you will master a great new skill. The good news is that the movements are natural and easy to learn. They do not require extreme limberness, strength, or the stamina of an athlete. You can quickly achieve your goals with our expert instruction. Come give Wing Tsun Kung Fu a try!

I have been training in the Leung Ting lineage of Wing Tsun Kung Fu since 1990. I have had the privilege and honor to learn from several high profile Wing Tsun Masters and Sifu's (instructors) via regular classes or intensive training seminars. Some of those include Grand Master Leung Ting, Master Emin Boztepe, Master Carson Lau, Sifu David Lesser, Sifu Michael Casey. More recently I have attended training workshops with Sifu Alex Richter and his excellent team of instructors from NYC. I'm currently receiving monthly instruction from Sifu Glenn Tillman.
I have also had some training in Escrima, and basic Kickboxing (Jeet Kune Do style) Silat, Grappling, Muay Thai, and Kali.
I am now training privately and in group classes under the tutelage of Senior Sifu Glenn Tillman and Alamo City Wing Tsun in San Antonio, Texas.
My deepest respect and gratitude to Sifu's Alex Richter and Glenn Tillman for their philosophy of constructive sharing and open generosity.
