By a coincidence, I discovered the Wan Kam Leung Practical Wing Chun Kung-Fu system. It was completely different from any of my previous training, and I was quickly very excited about this system presented to me. Everything was well explained, backed up with theoretical physics and make perfectly sense too me. The Wan Kam Leung Practical Wing Chun Kung-Fu system is the most thought through martial arts system I have ever encountered, every technique is useful and can be applied in one or several ways. Grandmaster Wan Kam Leung is a very innovative man, always seeks to improving his combat system, and not afraid to change or remove the things that do not work quite well…I have been a martial artist for about 25 years, and this system is one of the most effective and useful martial arts I have ever seen.

I have trained in several Martial Arts systems during my younger years. I have lived and trained Aikido in Japan, I have been several times National and European Champion in Tae Kwon-do. I also won several Kyokushin full-contact Championships. But I have never come across a such effective way of Self Defense system as the Practical Wing Chun system of Grandmaster Wan Kam Leung. Even though I went through two different Wing Chun systems before it was Grandmaster Wan Kam Leung who showed me the superiority of his evolutionary Wing Chun system.

I have practiced martial arts for most of my adult life. For the last 20 years I have spent time practicing Aikido, Jujitsu, Karate, Chinese Wushu and most recently Practical Wing Chun. Although each martial art offers much to learn in terms of discipline, respect, self protection and mental/physical training, I was really struck by the practicality and the scientific approach of Practical Wing Chun. Practical Wing Chun has taken the “art” out of martial arts and turned it into a scientific approach to self defense. Each and every movement is broken down to its most efficient and effective form while still honoring the art of Wing Chun. I find the training incredibly useful, interesting and always engaging and hope to continue my training well into the future. For those interested in the fastest way to effective self defense, this is really the way to go.

What attracted me to start studying Wing Chun was not only the superior reputation of Sifu Wan Kam Leung but also the fact that Wing Chun is very different to any exercise I have done over the last 30 years. I was looking for a new experience that would help me to improve on and off the tennis court and I am very pleased with my findings so far. Having played tennis at an international level my mind set has typically been short term result oriented: winning tennis matches and a number one ranking have been measures of success. It’s refreshing to study a discipline which is more long term thinking and where your skills are measured differently.

After a few weeks of private instruction with Sifu Wan Kam Leung in Hong Kong I learnt that many of the basic fundamentals in Wing Chun, such as balance, relaxation and the generation of power can be transferred not only to tennis but certain aspects also to professional life.

I am looking forward to many years of studying with Sifu Wan Kam Leung and his instructors in Hong Kong and I would recommend anyone regardless of background and purpose to study Practical Wing Chun.

Master Wan’s Wing Chun is made more practical and applicable whilst following traditions. I am very sure that he is one of the few masters possessing true skills. I recommend all martial artists and theorists of the world to study his system. I found treasure in Hong Kong – those visiting Hong Kong should come to see for themselves and learn from Master Wan‘s Practical Wing Chun.

As a martial arts fan and a native born Chinese from Hong Kong, I was only interested in non-Chinese martial arts such as Karate, Aikido, and Taekwon-Do when I was young. I had an impression that most Chinese martial arts were about stage performance and the techniques were impractical. But I was wrong. Grandmaster WAN Kam Leung proved me very wrong. When I first met Grandmaster Wan, I was writing a thesis at Harvard University and staying in my home town for research materials. After my first private lesson with Grandmaster Wan, I felt that my 20+ years of martial arts training meant almost nothing. The Wing Chun system Grandmaster Wan developed is a constant evolution yet based strictly on Wing Chun principles. Practical Wing Chun gives me a lot of room to think and grow as a martial arts practitioner. It does not only strengthen my self-protection ability, it also strengthens me as a human being, so much so that I am devoting my professional life to it.

THE MAGIC OF WING CHUN !I have chosen the kids to do Wing Chun for a variety of reasons.
Kids today,do not concentrate easily.TV,Computer games,and Ipads are all distractions.All kids,whether Western or Asian seem to be learning less,and achieving less.
Wing Chun provides for my children an opportunity to experience physical fitness and physical defence capabilities,making them more confident individuals and allows them to concentrate more.
I have noticed their school work has improved,their maturity has improved and their confidence levels are now better.
My wife and i are Western,speaking English at home,but our children through Wing Chun have been able to understand and admire Eastern culture,and have been inspired to learn and become proficient in Cantonese and Mandarin.
We consider this no small feat,when most kids their age are struggling to learn one language.
It is amazing to go to Australia and find Chinese children growing up  there not knowing Cantonese and or Mandarin,and their father’s feeling amazed to see our children Western speaking their own languages.
All this i believe has been achieved through Wing Chun.
