Our Wing Chun training
In Wing Chun circles Chu Sau Lei (CSL) Wing Chun is renowned for its Six Core Elements training, a power and energy training method to develop the body as a platform to absorb, re-direct and expel force.
Wing Chun is said to be “easy to learn” and a practical martial art. It only has three (3) empty hand form and three (3) forms on the Wooden Dummy, Pole and Butterfly knives. Compare this to other Chinese Martial arts like Choy Lay Fut that claimed to have more than 200 empty hands and weapon forms. Perhaps that this is one of the main reasons why Wing Chun has become so popular.
