this section is for wing chun practitioners only
Tang Yik Weng Chun is not your typical wing chun as you may have either studied or seen before. This is not yip man wing chun. the spelling is similiar but the chinese cheracters are different. we are teaching the original eternal spring lineage.
a warning about learning from an internet program or you tube
you can not learn from an internet program or the internet youtube channel. howerever, you can get something out of it but its hard to tell to what extent that might be. its inconstitant and fragmented at best. you must have a qualified sifu or sihing on the other side in order to make it work. even moy yat himself stated this one.
Weng Chun gives you more than just physical exercise. it also encompuses the elements of mental, spiritual development. It is also a form of entertainment and a way of experiencing deep rooted curlutal heritage.
Not all forms of martial arts are for everyone. that why we offer one of the most unique styles. A compact but challenging system that can be done by any age.
Tired of the same GYM rutine, try a martial art that gives
you more than a workout.
