"I was introduced to martial arts through the Wing Chun system of learning approximately 2 years ago by a friend. He suggested that my daughter (aged 12) and I would benefit from having a joint interest/ hobby. Neither myself or my daughter had done any form of martial arts before.
At first I kept going because she enjoyed it so much, after a couple of months, I found I was going along to the classes because I enjoyed learning Wing Chun. It's built up my stamina, flexibility and all round fitness levels. The Instructors (Sifu's, Sihing's) are all very generous with their knowledge and time. They breakdown the techniques into laymans terms, which is extremely helpful for those just starting out in Wing Chun.
At this moment in time I am a level 3 and my daughter is level 4 (dark blue sash) . I particularly like the grading system here because both student and Instructor have an input as to when it's felt the student is ready to grade to the next level.
Wing Chun teaches self respect, respect for others, it builds self confidence and the meditation side helps with lifes stresses.
Through Wing Chun I have met and built up new and long lasting friendships and feel part of the Wing Chun community. It's also interesting to learn about another countries culture and their customs.
As a non aggressive female, I have found doing Wing Chun very benefical. It's not about strength but more so about body positioning. The skills and techniques I am learning have made me feel safer in my day to day life, knowing that if I had to, I could defend myself and my daughter. My goals this year will be to see myself and my daughter grade again to our next levels and to continue my journey in the practice and understanding of the Wing Chun system of fighting."
'Hello there, my name is Paul and I train at Perth Wing Chun.
I really just want to talk today about how I got into Martial Arts and what maybe the benefits are. At least some of the benefits.
Actually, I got into Martial Arts probably about 20 years ago when I first started lecturing at a University in the United States. And it was at at time when I was very stressed and very vulnerable . And I had a student come in who threatened me. And I really didn't know what to do and it made me feel even more vulnerable and insecure.
I started taking a martial arts course - happened to be Aikedo at the time. And what I found was it gave much more of a presence, and a sense I could deal with a situation. Not only physically if someone attacked me, but also not to get into the situation in the first place, or deal with as it comes along.
And I think this is something that is with all my training over many years, and is now starting again as I moved over to Perth Wing Chun.
I would also say if you're interested, and if you are a teacher that 2 of the benefits you get here is first of all you actually have very very good instruction. That you can learn from the teachers how to be a better teacher.
But also it teaches you some more humility, and it reminds me of what it's like to be a student, and what it's like to actually not know how to do something. And to have really good Instructors that can show you, and help you on your own path for self development.'
A natural affiliation for the Martial Arts is something that seemed embedded within me from a very young age. Apparently, I was kicking, punching, and waving “swords” (sticks I gathered from the garden) from the time I could walk. As an adult, I summoned the courage to pursue this calling, which is when I happened to place my first steps into the Perth Wing Chun Academy and I never looked back since. Once I met the instructors, took a class and met my fellow Wing Chun brothers and sisters – I instantly knew this was the right school for me.
The Sifu’s at Perth Wing Chun are an eclectic bunch that complement each other. This is important, because Wing Chun (just like all forms of kung fu) is diverse and dynamic in nature. To be able to experience Wing Chun through the diverse perspectives of such a talented assemblage of instructors is a great privilege.
This is the heart of the Perth Wing Chun Academy – its culture is progressive, diverse and always open to new insights and perspectives.
Teaching here constantly grows, develops, and evolves which is so crucial in any martial art. Perth Wing Chun’s culture, I believe, is second to none. The sense of dynamism the school stands for not only pertains to Wing Chun, but transcends into all areas of life.
This is why to be a student at Perth Wing Chun academy set’s you apart from other schools, because you become a true martial artist and you are able to explore that sacred triad of mind, body, spirit.You will not be burdened by physical and athletic pressures that many fear of when coming into a Martial Arts. Be assured that this school is authentic and caters for everybody.
It’s never too late to begin your journey into the Martial Arts, and I highly recommend the Perth Wing Chun Academy , for they will adopt you with open arms. You'll gain a second family, as well as friends that will last a lifetime.
'I started training in Martial arts in my early 20’s and enjoyed it tremendously.
Even though I never learnt Wing Chun, I did train with someone who did. I was always impressed that when we did spar together I could hardly land any punches on him. I knew one day I would have to learn this style, but at the time I was too busy with my kicks and flashy moves from my previous style.
Then life started throwing responsibilities at me and I had to slowly stop, but I always held on to the fact that when I have kids I would get them involved.
When my eldest son turned 6 years old, I decided it was time for him to start learning a martial art. A quick google search brought me to the Perth Wing Chun Academy.
One of my main concerns was that my son would lose interest after a while if he couldn't understand it or if he just didn't enjoy it. I always told to him that it was fun and that he should just give it a go. So to drive home that fact, I too joined up with the adult's class to show him that even Dad was doing it and if he had any problems I would be there to help him.
I need not have worried, the instructors at Perth Wing Chun Academy are very patient and encourage a sense of fun with all the kids. This then left me free to pursue my own journey in Wing Chun without worrying about my son.
