History of Wing Chun

Wing Chun is unique in that it is thought as the first martial art created by a woman. According to Wan Kam Leung Practical Wing Chun, "Ng Mui, the Shaolin nun who developed the system, realized that most of the techniques in Shaolin Kung Fu were ineffective for a small woman to use against a larger, stronger man. She also realized that a woman could not match a man's stamina in a long fight. With this in mind, Ng Mui developed a system of self defense that enabled a smaller, weaker person such as herself to defeat a bigger, stronger person".

Description of Wing Chun

Wing Chun's specialty is close combat. It uses simultaneous attack and defense with footwork that drives in towards the body of the opponent. Force and strength are dealt with through positioning, structure, and timing rather than with more brute force.

Practitioners train sensitivity by closing their eyes during drills and Chi Sao in order to become less reliant on multiple sensory input, such as vision. While a practitioner will not close their eyes in an actual conflict, being able to feel changes of energy and motion in the limbs of an attacker allows for a more instinctual response.
