What is Wing Chun Kung Fu?


Wing Chun's most famous student - Bruce Lee

Wing Chun Kung Fu is a self defence system based on efficiency, economy of motion and consistent form.  Focusing on form over fitness, brain over brawn, your own physical strength need not be the deciding factor when it comes to self-defence.

Wing Chun was made famous by the late Bruce Lee (to the right) who studied under the last undisputed Grandmaster, Ip Man, whose biography hit the cinemas in 2008.  Our Wing Chun school teaches this Kung Fu style with a lineage that relates directly back to Ip Man.

The martial art originates from China and places a great deal of emphasis on close range, practical techniques rather than flowery moves and gymnastic kicking techniques.

Why Learn at the Kung Fu School?

The Kung Fu School is without doubt Crawley’s premier martial arts faciliy and arguably one of the best in the UK.  Fully equipped with modern and traditional training equipment, wooden dummies and wallbags, it has two training areas with solid wooden floors and mirrored walls.  There is no better place to start martial arts training.Sifu Paul Hawkes training at the Crawley martial arts school
