About Wing Chun

WING CHUN (詠春) is a concept-based Chinese martial art and form of self-defense utilizing both striking and grappling while specialising in close-range combat. it was developed in southern China and originated form the Shoaling Temple.

Wing Chun began to quietly spread throughout southern China, evolving as it was adopted into various groups. It gained popularity when Grandmaster Ip Man began to teach openly in China and Hong Kong. His students continued the evolution, and spread Wing Chun all around the world. Today, many people have learned of Wing Chun through the late martial arts superstar Bruce Lee or through the popular Ip Man series of movies. The main reasons that Wing Chun has grown in popularity is that (1) it is very practical in the modern world, (2) it can be learned in a relatively short period of time, and (3) it can be practiced by people of all sizes, shapes and degrees of athletic ability.

Harry Evangelou - Wing Chun Instructor

I started training in Wing Chun in London back in the mid 80’s during all the controversy between “Traditional” and “Modified Wing Chun” and everything that came along with it, what a time that was. It was fantastic and hooking up with a lot of different practitioners of Wing Chun was an experience not to be forgotten.

Before I started I did a lot of looking around, went to different clubs in London and saw all the different versions and met the different teachers and masters, all the different lineages of Wing Chun and decided to learn traditional Wing Chun from Grand Master William Cheung lineage and it was the system I fell in love with and still enjoy today.

You never stop learning and growing in Wing Chun, I am fortunate enough to still be able to train with Sifu Dom Bekes and receive guidance from him which keeps me on track and always in the right direction. Sifu Dom has trained with Grand Master William Cheung and has also recorded a few of the Grand Master Williams Cheung seminars When he stayed here in the UK with Sifu Dom.
