What Is Wing Chun?

Wing Chun is a system of Kung Fu designed for inner health and realistic self-defense. At the pinnacle of Wing Chun stand amplified mindfulness and effortless power, also known as ‘Nim Lik’, or ‘Mind Force’.

This is the true essence of Wing Chun

Unfortunately, many other styles of this art miss the point. They are stuck in their reliance on external and mechanical movements, instead of cultivating the state of mind created through the intention behind each movement. Which eventually leads to tremendous and effortless power! Therefore, we feel very privileged to have been exposed to the essence of Wing Chun by Grandmaster Chu Shong Tin. We would like to share this gem with as many people in the world as we can!

The story, passed onto Grandmaster CST by Ip Man, goes like this. A woman named Ng Mui conceived this art in China over 300 years ago. She had developed the system through the enhancement of her Kung Fu knowledge. Where all unnecessary and energy consuming movement is abolished, making it a very realistic and effective form of self-defence.

The Laws of Physics

The more we delve into this art, the more we comprehend and appreciate its perfection in terms of applying the laws of physics. This deepens our awe and admiration for the founder of the system. Who was able to not only understand these laws over 300 years ago, but also to systematise a method that could be passed down from generation to generation. With this understanding and realization, Sifu Nima King and his team at Mindful Wing Chun strive to be the torch-bearers of the genuine internal art.

This beautiful art was actually named after the student of a lady who was a student of the creator, Yim Wing Chun. The term ‘Wing Chun’ has been interpreted by English speakers as ‘Everlasting Springtime’. Therefore, it’s a very appropriate name for this art.
