To remember and honor the Skill, Greatness, and Wisdom of the late GM Kang Sin Sin (江新辰), the disciples Michael, Rio, and Febry decided to publish this website as we need to preserve the Wing Chun KungFu of the late GM Kang Sin Sin by spreading his way of teaching and the style that he learnt from the late GGM Ip Man (Yip Man), the late GM Leung Sheung, and the late GM Chu Shong Tin.

Simple Thoughts

Some simple thoughts about Wing Chun:

Wingchun is the science of fighting.
All the movements must be explainable scientifically. A punch utilizing a hardened muscle couldn't be done in a higher speed. If  a punch is done with a low/lower speed, then we have to ask the question "when will the punch hit the target?". Thus it's just only wasting the energy.
The closes distance of any 2 points is a straight line, not an arch nor anything else. Thus Wingchun is applying the concept of physics and mathematics in its fighting system.

Wingchun is the logic of fighting.
All the movements must be logical. If it doesn't make any sense, then we have to ask the question "why we use/practice this movement?"

Wingchun is the simplicity of fighting.
All the movements must be simple. It must be simple enough so a practitioner can apply the attacks and defenses as direct as possible. If we can hit with one move, then we have to ask the question "why do we need 2 moves to hit the target?"

Wingchun is about the biomechanic of fighting.
All the movements must be efficient. Over time, our bodies don’t work as efficiently as they were designed to and our ability to move through the most basic and fundamental movements can become compromised. We tend to forget about it. If this ability to move efficiently goes unchecked, there’s a strong likelihood that we will develop compensatory movement patterns, which can eventually result in lost performance and injury. However, by assessing the quality of some our body’s basic and fundamental movements, we can strive to continue to move as efficiently as possible, therefore reducing our risk of injury and increasing our energy delivery.

Whingchun is the naturalization of fighting.
Wingchun teaches that the human body must go back to its natural form. If a movement is not done naturally (for example the shoulder is pulled up unrealized when making a punch), then the energy mass and flow will be wasted. The human hands is naturally in a relaxed position, not in a muscularly hardened position. The muscle will only be hardened at a certain point, thus it will not waste any energy.

Wingchun is about protecting your weakest points.
Why center line? It's because many of the human weakest points are located in the center line of our body.

Wingchun is created by a Lady (history said it's created by a Budhist Nun).
Will a female normally practice like a man? The answer is NO.

One of the essence of Wingchun is, how we can defeat a bigger, tougher, more powerful person using our smaller body. But if your body is larger than most people, then you may use it as your own advantage as long as you can use it for your own advantage properly.
