classes are friendly and in a safe environment.
The beginners class is divided into two levels. The 1st level will lay out all the basics of the system whilst developing your general motor skills and confidence in close quarter situations. It is geared towards domestic abuse and standard street situations with specific attention placed on body unity, efficiency of movement and the all important centre line theory. The 2nd level syllabus teaches street survival tactics and applications, working on more street orientated attacks requiring more direct techniques and a sharper mindset.
Split into three sections, the Sil Lim Tao works the basic stance, floating and throwing energies, the basics blocks and strikes. This form helps you to find and keep your centre line. The Sil Lim Tao is a stationery form, but footwork is worked thoroughly in every class.
Wing Chun is renowned for its devastating, explosive, short-range techniques. The footwork has to be quick, effective, intuitive and very efficient just like the hand techniques.
