The 4 Basic Wing Chun Principles
1. If the way is clear, go forward. - Forward
2. If resistance is met, stick with it. - Stick
3. If you encounter greater force, yield. - Yield
4. If the opponent withdraws, follow. - Follow
Every motion in Wing Chun is an application of the above principles. It sounds simple, but in a self-defence situation less is more. (This is one reason firearms are so popular in some countries - Draw, Aim, Fire all in one movement. A simple & effective solution, but one which often creates many more problems than it solves.)
The complete system teaches total self-defence at all of the above ranges, including programmes on multiple assailants & facing weapons. In addition, we teach courses & hold seminars on advanced techniques, ground fighting, sparring, and also the breathing, healing & internal health components of the art, which is called Chi Kung - The Art Of Healthy Movement.
