WING TSUN – TO STOP THE OPPONENT’S ATTACK
Wing Tsun (¨song of spring¨) is a Chinese fighting and self-defence discipline. It focuses on simple moves, fast learning and skills to defend oneself against bigger and stronger opponents.
WING TSUN AS A HOBBY
Wing Tsun (WT) is suitable for women and men of all ages who are interested in fighting without weapons. The training process consists of learning hand techniques for a close fight. It also includes kicks, grabs, training against weapons and multiple attackers. On the whole, Wing Tsun can be described as a straightforward fighting style where you can use the power of the opponent against himself.
Wing Tsun is not an official sport and there are no competitions in this discipline.
MORE THAN 300 YEARS OF DEVELOPMENT
Wing Tsun is a Chinese Kung Fu style which was developed around 300 years ago by a Buddhist nun Ng Mui. Wing Tsun was named after Ng Mui’s first student Yim Wing Tsun. It is known to be the only self-defence fighting style in the world developed by a woman. In the beginning, students learn mostly hand techniques but later the focus is on leg technique also. Kicks in Wing Tsun are low and fast. Traditional weapons of Wing Tsun are the Butterfly Swords and the Dragon Pole.
In Wing Tsun, a fighter tries to react to the opponent’s attack by counterattacking and defending important body parts at the same time. Effective counterattack can make the opponent lose control of the centre of balance and make it impossible to defend himself.
WWing Tsun is also famous for its chi-sau training. Chi-sau (¨sticking hands¨) makes it possible to identify the opponent’s moves and react to them without really looking. Upon contact with the opponent, the fighter acts on his senses almost subconsciously and responds to the opponent’s movements very fast thanks to the chi-sau training.
The best defending strategy is to counterattack and continue striking the opponent through the openings in his defence. If the fighter encounters a stronger opponent, he surrenders in a controlled manner, changes his position and continues counterattacking. WT practitioners training on the highest level can use the force of the opponent against himself. This is because Wing Tsun is based on the principles of Taoism: rather than fighting against the opponent´s moves, Wing Tsun practitioner adjusts his movements according to the opponent’s technique.
There is a system of student ranking based on their levels from 1 to 12. These levels are marked on the outfits of practitioners.
WHO IS IT SUITABLE FOR?
Wing Tsun is suitable for women and men of all ages as a martial art and fitness training.
In Finland, students practice Yip Man’s style of Wing Tsun. Training is based on the teachings of the dai-sifu Allan Jensen and his school Wing Tsun Scandinavia.
