Join us Thursday's starting June 14th - July 5th, for a 4 week self defense class designed specifically for Healing Practitioners who work in small enclosed spaces.
Wing Chun insists in both principle and practicality that no matter the size difference or close proximity, you can handle any self defense situation if you have the right skills.
History of Wing Chun
The common legend as told by Yip Man, involves a young woman named Yim Wing Chun during the period after the destruction by the Qing government of the Southern Shaolin and its associated temples.
Having denied the local warlord's marriage offer, Yim Wing-Chun said she would reconsider the proposal if he could beat her in a fight. She soon crossed paths with a Buddhist nun named Ng Mui who was a Shaolin Sect survivor, and asked the nun to teach her to fight. According to legend, Ng Mui taught Yim Wing-Chun a new system of martial art that had been inspired by the nun's observations of a confrontation between a Snake and a Crane. This then still nameless style enabled Yim Wing-Chun to beat the warlord in a one-on-one fight. Yim Wing-Chun thereafter married Leung Bok-Chau and taught him the style, which was later named after her.
We hope to never have to use these skills but should we be faced with a challenge we will be well equipped to handle it.
