about Wing Tsun

Wing Tsun (WT) stands for a systematic which exceeds the practical application of martial arts by far. WingTsun (like Escrima as well – the counterpart from the Philippines) is a holistic process, which teaches the WingTsun practicioner through intense physical and mental training how to primarily control the incoming attacking energy and further – if necessary – by „borrowing“ the same – the attacked parts of the body „are being charged“ by the physical contact of the attack and render, without any loss and without any action from ourself, the energy back to the opponent with its whole impact. Everything follows a so-called ‚leitmotif‘ – the principle of the central combat line(s)!

The fact, scientifically pro-ven, that the human being is not able to process more than than 25 images per second (or frames per second), contains consider-able risks within the self-defense – if visual recog-nition is the exclusive intitative for data processing in order to establish a defense strategy on that. A serious attack moves, however, with a frame rate per second far beyond 25 pictures per second!
By adopting the WingTsun strategy of the central combat line, all parts of the body with maximim reach are intelligently arranged in front of our own body (the target zone of an incoming attack), so that the data processing becomes literally ‚enforced‘ by physical contact‘ – the data processing via the tactile recognition (surface sensitivity through touch and pressure) happens in a timely ratio of 1:1 and without any loss of quality! (Each touch of a hot oven plate with the bare hand and the subsequent unstoppable and instinctive action of pulling the hand away is a realistic testimonial of this phenomenon.) By training tactical skills through WingTsun, old risk-based ‚behaviourial patterns‘ are being restructured into new ‚behaviourial strategies‘, which are integrated and embedded into superior fighting principles. These fighting principles have as a basic feature control – control means continous advantageous adapting to the momentarily situation in order to keep the risk factor at zero. An incredible enhancement of the individual motion and awareness potential, enhanced mental and physical flexibility, etc. are further features and tangible gains of the WingTsun training on the way to encompassing fitness and wellness, that offers as a byproduct effective security – although the teaching approach starts on this aspect. According to the asian experience philosophies of learning intellectually through practical working experience – or better known: the way is the objective!

For already experienced practitioners of various combative disciplines WingTsun offers enough aspects and concrete enhancements for the efficiency improvements of the respective combat style or competition preparation – logic is not bound to any rules, and is thus universally applicable – platform independant!

However, logic is broken by every artificially human made system of rules. To what extent the practitioner wants to apply the logic remains an individual decision. The logical base of all actions in WingTsun: the balanced relation between risk and security. Here the only logic for a relation that makes sense is that of 0 % risk and 100 % of security! If this thinking is broken down into all aspects, the concept of the ‚redundancy‘ or multiple security is coming into perspective automatically. The always recurring fact, that it is often not possible to leave a situation, or that a violant person has already ignored all boundaries being built up by techniques of de-escalation, is supposed to make aware, that a training for violance prevention should not only be based on techniques of verbal de-escalation – a training ratio should be 80 percent physical to 20 percent mental. The logical fact is, that the body conducts uncontrollable and unchangeable reflex actions, once we arrive in a stage of panic.
Hence it is much more demanding to bring the body towards a controlled behaviour into compliance with verbal de-escalation in order to reach multi-level security. Training in verbal and behaviourial techniques for de-escalation are considerably more easy to learn on their own. Hereby to remember: every fight avoided is a fight won – given that the potential violent person makes this happen from his side too! IS WINGTSUN SOMETHING NEW? Yes and no – WingTsun means innovation of the individual possibilities and abilities through constant work (old Chinese concept of ‚KungFu -‚ hard and long continuous work). Although coming from the past it is more contemporary then ever, because logic does not know any ages! Wing Tsun has, however, a history of approximately 300 years. The WingTsun method adopted by us is the one after Grand Master Leung Ting from Hong Kong. The in over 30 years accumulated know-how is taught on highest international skill levels. Let logic and not assumption be your maxim! The admittance of new beginners is systematically conducted in two stages: 1. the practical basic introduction 2. the subsequent trial class The practical basic introduction is the requirement for getting in touch with strategic-logic approach and getting in touch of the own body in regards to this universal strategy. The subsequent trial class aims at the perception of totally different factors, like getting to know the membership, group and training dynamics, the instructorship, etc..
