What Is Wing Chun?
Wing Chun is a traditional Chinese fighting art. It is direct, uses economy of movement, and is very comprehensive. We feel the laws of physics determine the best ways to move and defend one’s self. These concepts and principles govern how we move, fight and train. Most other martial arts styles rely on muscular strength, speed, and purely physical technique. Instead, the concepts we use involve position, sensitivity, structure, footwork, and technique to deal with aggressors. In short, Wing Chun Kung Fu is a concept-based fighting system, NOT a technique-based style.
The art is highly efficient and aggressive, yet we train to acquire effortless combat skills. The human’s most basic and natural instinct is self-preservation.
When we are children in the developmental stages, these basic instincts come more naturally to us, however over time we become civilized and need to, as adults, be trained to use our once natural instinct of self-preservation. At Atlantic Warriors our mission is to train in the science of self-preservation.
The students of Atlantic Warriors seek to continually develop and evolve their understanding of Wing Chun principles and concepts, and don’t settle for simply carrying on the art in a sacred, or dead tradition. At the same time, we value and honor the Wing Chun pioneers such as, Leung Jan, Chan Wah Shun, Leung Bik, Ip Man, and Leung Sheung. This thinking person’s approach to martial study trains self-preservation skills, not skills for tournaments, competition, or egotistical brawls. Intelligence, awareness, and hard work are essential aspects of Wing Chun training. Come experience the difference at Atlantic Warriors Wing Chun Kung Fu in Jacksonville, Florida.
