One area that makes a large difference to how you are percieved and how confident you feel is our presentation skills. Once you can control the perception people have of you, it is much easier to be confident about your abilities.

    • Safe & Fun
    WT at its root is a scientific form of self defence. It educates its practitioners in all stages of attack from the psychological build up to the physical defence. Used by elite police units all over the world including the FBI, SEK, RAID and NOKS, in addition to being the foremost school in civilian self defence, WT is considered the ultimate stage in the evolution in self defence.
    The most important aspect of any system of self defence even before its effectiveness is that when it is being learned it is both safe for the practitioners and enjoyable. Since being attacked is usually a once in a lifetime experience, there seems little point in practicing a system which over a lifetime of practice will have exposed you to more danger and unpleasantness than the original threat.

    Forget about stress - we find your balance. Work out with peers in the classroom.

    Objectivies Of WingTjun

    The main objective of Wing Tjun (or WT as it is commonly abbreviated) is to be a realistic system of self-defense. WT does not focus on fighting “techniques”, instead relying on fighting and energy principles to be followed at all times. The central idea is that, under pressure, it is impossible to visually recognize the precise direction and speed of an attack and make a conscious decision on an effective way in which to react, all within the very brief amount of time you have before your opponent's attack lands. Rather, one must (counter) attack immediately in a very direct and protected manner and rely on reflexes to determine how to react if the opponent's attack continues to pose a problem. Chi Sao, or “sticking hands” trains students to respond reflexively to the speed, force, and direction of an attack, based on tactile information - which the human brain processes much faster than visual information.

    Fighting Principles
    Go Forward
    Always move towards the opponent, both with your movement and strikes.

    Stick to the opponent, maintaining constant contact. This will both limit the attacker, and mean they cannot attack without your knowledge.

    Yield to the greater force, the attacker finds no resistance - like hitting air.

    Follow Through
    A companion to the first principle. Attacks should flow towards the opponant into the gaps in his defence, not stopping, merely changing.

    Force Principles
    Release yourself of your own force.
    Tension will only slow down your reactions, as you will have to fight yourself too. You need to be relaxed in order to move and react dynamically to your opponent.

    Release yourself of your attackers force.
    Nullify your opponents attack by either moving the force away from you or to move yourself away from it.

    Recycle your attacker's force.
    Use the force they give you to power your own attack. Act as a compressed spring.
    Add your own.
    In addition to recycling, add your own force into the attack.
