Here’s what our students say about us

I started learning wing chun in Australia for a couple of years and wanted to continue my training after moving back to Singapore.

After training in CSL wing chun, I gained a broader perspective of wing chun as it has good balance of traditional training (such as forms and meditation) and application base training (such as pad and foot work).

In addition, the training environment is also relaxed and friendly giving students a conducive environment to train and a holistic exposure to the martial art.

I was almost 50 years old when I started learning Wing Chun with CSL. As I have never trained in any form of martial art (except unarmed combat during NSF), I was concerned if I was too old to learn and if I was not able to catch-up the pace of training with the class.
It was a pleasant surprise to find the classes were conducted that are suitable for all ages. I find Steven's method of teaching is practical, and he took effort to explain the rational of each practice movement.
Steven's training also includes mediation technique during the class to help student relax the body. I find this extremely useful to relax and calm the body.
In summary, I'm very glad to have joined CSL. It may not be the most elegant form of martial art, but if you are looking for a practical form of martial art, CSL Wing Chun is something you should consider.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have learned Wing Chun in Sydney for a number of years, learning from and training with some strong, dedicated practitioners.
Upon moving to Singapore nearly 3 years ago, I wanted to continue my practice and study while juggling a work and travel schedule. After some trial and error, I came across Chu Sau Lei Wing Chun Singapore and Sifu Steven Wang and I haven’t looked back since.
Sifu Steven is an extremely dedicated student of the martial arts with a very strong foundation in Wing Chun in the Yip Man Wing Chun lineage as taught by Hawkins Cheung and further developed by Robert Chu Sau Lei.  Additionally, he has a strong foundation in Chinese boxing, Qi Gong and Eskrima.
In spite of his knowledge, experience and years of practice Sifu Steven is a softly spoken, patient and skillful teacher who genuinely has passion for his students’ development in the martial arts.
In the year or so that I have trained with Sifu Steven’s school, I have seen strong development in my overall body structure, relaxation and have been delighted to layer in some Chinese boxing onto my Wing Chun base.

After trying and wasting time at various wing chun schools in Singapore and overseas I finally found an amazingly skillful,  patient and very well experienced Sifu who can not only make one understand the art in a simpler way but has also a modern and very functional approach to everyday situation one might be facing.”

I first met Sifu Steven back in 2009. Back then i already have 12 years of training in Southern Shaolin and was exploring different lineages of Wing Chun. I was intrigued by the CSL Wingchun taught by Sifu Steven because there is a wonderful balance of modern (Conditioning, pad works… ) and traditional (Form, Qigong…) training methodology. I heard a lot about Wing Chun’s ability for the weaker to defeat stronger opponent. But none of the school i had visited before was able to articulate the concepts as clearly and concise compared to Sifu Steven. At CSL Wing Chun I was introduced to the Body Structure training which holds the key to among other things, effectively absorb pressure from a heavier and stronger opponent and issue powerful strikes. I can attest for the afore-mentioned because i had successfully dealt with a physically larger and stronger Dutch Wing Chun practitioner. After a few years of training absence due to work, I am now back training with Sifu Steven and if you are looking for traditional kung fu complemented with a modern training methodology. I cannot recommend Sifu Steven and CSL Wing Chun enough. In CSL Wing Chun, we don’t just seek to understand the knowledge but we apply it under pressure testing. You are getting the real deal kung fu here!

CSL Wing Chun Singapore is highly unique in its absolute focus on application, be it during the instruction of Qi Gong, footwork, forms or weapons training. Sifu Steven does not attempt to infuse Wing Chun with mysticism and is never elusive, when it comes to furnishing answers and instructions about dealing with the multitude of possible scenarios likely to be encountered on the streets, as well as in the ring. Having previously trained in Muay Thai and Jujitsu, i have witnessed the seamless integration between Wing Chun and other martial arts during my training sessions with Sifu Steven, especially how these reinforce each other, affording a totality to one's learning experience.

Being an officer in enforcement work for 15 years, I feel that CSL Wing Chun is practical and effective. It encompasses all that is needed for street self-defense. What I like about CSL Wing Chun would be that it is a traditional Chinese martial arts which evolved using modern training methods but in accordance to the traditional concepts of classical Wing Chun so that it stays relevant and functional to be used in a fight.

Being a private student of Sifu Steven, I can safely assure you that Sifu is very patient and detailed in explaining a certain concept or technique. He would use the simplest of examples to relate which makes me easier to grasp the meaning of the concept and the modern application of it. He is very attentive and focused in teaching such that he will be able to spot your mistake and guide you through step-by-step till you can do it correctly. At the same time, he teaches the art in a relaxed manner which makes the training enjoyable though it can be quite a fun challenge at times. If you are looking for a martial art to train, look no further; CSL Wing Chun is the art you will not regret learning!

In time to come, I hope to be able to help Sifu in teaching this art so as to preserve and pass down this effective martial art to the next generation.

Before I started training Chu Sau Lei I already practiced Wing Chun and other Chinese Martial Arts.  What I like about training Chu Sau Lei Wing Chun is:

We learn traditional Chinese martial art but we are able to apply it in a modern context.
We learn the traditional Wing Chun forms but we also use modern tools and training concepts.
These are important concepts and training methods  that most other Chinese martial arts has failed to adept to and comprehend and has  made CSL Wing Chun able to hold up in todays’ context

I have previously learnt different martial arts (wushu), and have also dabbled in wing chun a little. CSL has taught me more about the importance of body structure and how to apply it in Wing Chun. I like that we learn something more in-depth as opposed to just the external facade of the techniques. Perhaps more importantly, we also practise meditation to calm the mind and this, to me, is a very important aspect of martial arts that is often neglected. My schedule only allows me to go for training once a week (at most), but it is something I often look forward to as it helps me to keep my mind off work and allows me to relax.

I have been learning CSL wing chun for about a year now. As someone with no martial arts background, I find the lessons easy to follow. Sifu is very detailed and clear in his explanations of the techniques. On top of that, he is very patient and understanding in guiding beginning students like me. The seniors there are also very supportive and helpful and I can rely on their help and guidance whenever I am unsure.

I started learning Wing Chun about 1 year ago, at the age of 48 and before I only  practiced Taiji for a year. CSL Wing Chun focusses on the practical application and functional aspects of Chinese martial art. The training emphasizes a lot on proper body structure, relaxation, pad works, and the application of Wing Chun techniques. Through these trainings, I learned the Wing Chun Forms, Qi Gong, chi sao and how to apply this martial art.

Sifu Steven’s teaching methods are direct and effective, he is very patient and passionate in teaching his skills and sharing his experiences with us. I’m glad to have joined, this is a Wing Chun class that I can strongly recommend.

This Wing Chun club is probably the best kept secret in Singapore. If you want to learn Wing Chun and bring out the best in you, you get everything you ask for. No frill training with a very committed and competent Sifu, second to none. Low student-to -teacher ratio for a lot of one-on-one attention and guidance. An all rounded training in classic Wing Chun practices, mediation, and Chinese boxing. I learned so much here especially, and perhaps surprisingly, on how to relax, which is a key to Wing Chun excellence and a higher quality of life especially in fast paced Singapore.
