What you'll do

Wing Chun in its modern form is composed of three open hand sets, a long pole form, a sword form, a wooden dummy set and various drills. Its use of the bong sau or wing arm movement is unique as are its chi sau / chi gerk for sensitivity and reflex training. Attribution to the Everlasting Spring can be traced back to the Red Boats and also contained a flying dart skill.
It is best characterised as simultaneous attack and defense.

Yin Style Ba Gua Zhang attributed to Master Yin Fu embodies a circle walking and post or posture standing meditation and as a Martial Art is best characterised as striking while moving.

Wing Chun can be thought of as the centre of the circle, while Ba Gua Zhang is the circle.

VVCK&BQC stands for Victoria University of Wellington Ving Chun Kuen and Ba Qua Club and training iterates asking the 8 questions of Wing Chun Kung Fu. The 8 questions are symbolised by 8 trigrams of the I Ching Tao.

In as little as 4 weeks or as a one day intensive you will gain an introduction and appreciation of these arts. If you practise what you have learnt a little everyday you will have begun the journey to Mastery.

Participate in learning the art of Wing Chun Kung Fu and/or Yin Style Ba Gua Zhang, it's meditation, mindset, conditioning and as self defense.
