WING CHUN SKILLS YOU WILL DEVELOP IN CLASS
Wing Chun will help you develop many martial arts skills.
It’s a technical style that uses a deep understanding of angles of attack, footwork and both direct attack and evasive attack.
Wing Chun is a close-range combat system. It’s famous for its economy of movement, enabling great effect with minimum effort. It is known to increase the speed of a person’s reflex reactions and the ability to simultaneously defend and counter-attack.
Wing Chun can help you improve your coordination, enable you to gain greater physical confidence and develop your focus and determination.
Training in Wing Chun is a way of self-development as well as a way of self-defence.
Training in Chinese martial arts is a journey of self-discovery.
What are your strengths?
What are your weaknesses?
As well as building up your martial arts skills, you also build determination, focus, concentration and a deeper awareness of yourself and your interactions with the world around you.
The College of Chinese Martial Arts Wing Chun system has three levels: Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced.
This is a very compact, efficient and practical version of Wing Chun. It is what Wing Chun was originally intended to be: quick to learn and easy to apply.

THE WING CHUN BOOK
This book contains a detailed explanation of the Wing Chun system of The College of Chinese Martial Arts.
Students receive a free copy of the book at their first class.
I have been studying the Internal Martial Arts of China for well over 25 years. To the casual observer, my pursuit of Kung Fu has been nothing short of an obsession. And on this journey, Wing Chun was my first love. I have, on occasions, met other people who share this pursuit with just as much passion. Mark Tan, who writes the other foreword to this book, has that dubious honor. We have been training partners now for almost 20 years. However, in all my years of training and living in “The Martial Arts World” only once have I met an individual I consider to be an entire order of magnitude more “hardcore” than Mark Tan and myself. Paul Brecher is that person. Unsurprisingly, Mark and I have been training obsessively with Paul since the day we met him. Now, more than 15 years later, the rate at which we are learning from Paul is still accelerating. We are in a place I didn’t even know existed. They have a saying in China. When a Kung Fu Master reaches an exceptional level, that person is considered a “National Treasure”. In the UK, Paul is our very own National Treasure. Here is his meditation on Wing Chun Kung Fu. There are no secrets. Good luck with your training.
