Wing Chun is known for its efficiency and economy of movement, with most of the system’s strikes occurring on the centerline in a linear fashion ( the shortest distance to a target is a straight-line).
In our children's Wing Chun program, classes are designed most importantly for the kids to have fun, and foster an early love for the martial arts. Although taught with a lighter tone than the adults class, Kids Wing Chun will encourage better discipline and a more active lifestyle.
Kids will learn all the basics of Wing Chun and apply them through games that will challenge them to use everything they have learned to become better problem solvers and responsible young martial artists.
This program is perfect for students who do better in programs with a slightly relaxed structure.
