What is wing chun kung fu?
How is the system structured?
The Wing Chun system itself is quite simple in comparison to other Kung Fu styles and contains fewer forms. It is concept based, opening the possibility to a variety of applications from each movement in the form, instead of fixed techniques. This opens the possibility for deep exploration if you understand what you are doing.
The style consists of:

- The six and a half point pole (Luk dim poon kwan)
- The eight slashing knives/Butterfly knives (Bart Cham Dao)
