Are you looking for a practical martial art? Not all styles are created equal. What you see in the movies is far different from sheer reality. You’ve heard that the best defense is offense. Put that into practice with WingChun. In order to be successful against actual attacks you need a simple, direct approach — one that aligns your physical structure, emotional power, and mental flow.

We specialize in giving you the deep confidence that comes from functional Self-Defense ability. Our class environment is fun, safe, and supportive. Among cooperative peers and dedicated teachers, you will learn to defend yourself and embody the art of WingChun.


Self-Defense System Vs. Sport Style

Our WingChun system focuses on Self-Defense. You train to apply your full range of strategic intelligence and technical tools. You are the honed weapon. You will not learn a competition form or combat sport. These methods are limited by rules that handicap your freedom of movement.


Train with individuals of all genders.
Separation into men against men or women against women.
Train with people of different sizes.
Segregation into different weight classes.
Train to deal with more than one attacker.
Restricted to single opponents against each other.
Train to deal with armed attackers.
Weapons are not allowed.
Train yourself for real situations.
The goal is winning a controlled match.

If you are going to really commit to learning a Self-Defense system, I think it’s so important to enjoy the community of people you’ll be studying with. That’s a major reason why I love studying WingChun at this Academy with Sifu Paul Wang and the other IAW instructors.

We offer new students an Intro Class. Thus, you can appreciate the quality of skills you will acquire. We are looking to invite a few more friendly, diligent, and unique individuals to our WingChun community.

Once you decide to join us, you have the option to Pay Per Month or Pay Per Year. The majority of potential students who compare the two choices below decide on the value, flexibility, and convenience of Pay Per Year.

If you are unsure about your commitment then feel free to Pay Per Month indefinitely. Once you are ready to graduate through our one-year WingChun Basic Course certifications, we generously reward your dedication to long-term training with a Pay Per Year incentive. Why not start with that right away?


The IAW system has improved the effectiveness of WingChun as Self-Defense.

They teach precise and applicable techniques to challenge the body and mind to effectively end Self-Defense situations. Plus, there is a dedicated community of students to train with in a friendly yet professional atmosphere.
