The Art of Wing Chun Kung Fu was developed in China over 300 years ago by a Buddhist nun named Ng Mai - Her Idea to develop a Self Defence system stemming from principals and concepts, built on foundation- one which did not rely solely on sheer brute strength or athleticism.
The art of Wing Chun has since flourished and evolved - its principals and concepts benefiting practitioners with skills stretching further than self defence alone.
Following the Chu Shong Tin lineage, Wing Chun - Thought Method is unique, highly diverse and Self Defence Effective.
The training adapts to you, your body type and your training Goals,
conducted in a free flowing manner,
as is indicative of the Wing Chun way.
Through various exercises, form training and Chi Sao (sticking hands) sessions, practitioners develop
skills and abilities enabling more efficient and effective performance of both the mind and body mechanics.

Practicing Wing Chun – Thought Method provides for a multitude of benefits both physically and mentally. Fascinated by the principals and concepts pertaining to self-defence and Wowed by the one inch punch (a demonstration of close range power) I first began my Wing Chun journey back in 1996. Over the years of training I learned that there is so much more to the art than I first imagined.
Typically classes evolve around generating and overcoming force without resorting to use of sheer brute strength. Rather than being methodical –(i.e. learning a series of various techniques which are applied to various self-defence scenarios or.......... drill training) , we practice exercises and movements to teach the MIND and BODY to generate, react to and interact with force instinctively and naturally as it then becomes embedded and never forgotten – like riding a bike or driving a car. You just do it automatically, instinctively and naturally.
No pre conceived method.
This actively develops in training - The using, exercising, practicing this part of the mind. It’s an integral part of the training and allows the practitioner the ability to remain HIGHLY ADAPTABLE - As is the nature of the training itself. It adapts to you, your body type, your training goals.
It also leads to a path of self-learning, Self-Cultivation.
Because the origin of every movement is first derived from Thought. (Idea)
So lets enhance that. Literally.
Hence the term Thought Method.
It then best describes what we practice - aim to enhance and the nature of
Chu Shong Tin Lineage Wing Chun.
Learning to Learn is part of Self-Cultivation.
Produced in the training of Wing Chun is the Art of mastering oneself, rather than of your opponent, OR of your environment, or even perhaps of the world in which we live.
In Wing Chun the vessel for this is in the forms, exercises and particularly Chi Sao - or the “Kung Fu” aspect. However…… only the vessel for it.
Now think of the applications of this as a philosophy approach to Self-Defence !
Being the ultimate adaptable…. As in all confronting, violent, crazy scenarios we can never, no matter how long and hard we train to, cover all of the variables that arise in these situations. Being highly adaptable (or Learning to Learn) is the key.
Wing Chun was developed as a means of close range combat designed to overcome a stronger opponent without relying on brute strength or athleticism. As earlier mentioned, the training far exceeded my imagination delivering so much more:
-Learning about your mind / body coordination, functions and really enhancing that connection
-Exercising the automated / involuntary/ instinctive part of your mind
-A state of relaxation and poise
-Body structure alignment and flow
-Balance and center awareness
-Enhanced natural reflex action
-Speed, Power, Balance, Mobility, Determination, Focus
