      is an old form of Martial Art created by a Chinese nun. It is simple yet affective, soft yet powerful. Based on touch and speed instead of physical strength, this style is suitable for all ages and abilities. Wing Chun was Bruce Lee’s first style when he studied in Hong Kong with Sifu Ip Man. In turn Ip Chun’s son, Ip Chun is still carrying on the Wing Chun tradition in Hong Kong and has bestowed Alan with the Ving Tsun Association’s teaching certificate. Wing Chun has 3 basic forms, Chi Shau practice and wooden dummy.Wing Chun with Ip Chun in Hong Kong
      Shaolin Kickboxing (Sanshou)
      is a martial art which was originally developed by the Chinese military based upon the intense study and practices of traditional Kung Fu and modern combat fighting techniques; it combines full-contact kickboxing, which include punches and kicks, wrestling, takedowns, throws, sweeps and kick catches.Sanda is practiced in tournaments and is normally held alongside taolu events in wushu competition. For safety reasons, some techniques from the self-defense form such as elbow strikes, chokes, and joint locks, are not allowed during tournaments. Competitors can win by knockout or points which are earned by landing strikes to the body or head, throwing an opponent, or when competition is held on a raised lei tai platform, pushing them off the platform. Fighters are only allowed to clinch for a few seconds. If the clinch is not broken by the fighters, and if neither succeeds in throwing his opponent within the time limit, the referee will break the clinch.Training consists out of stamina work, body conditioning, stretching, bag work, partner work, forms and sparring.
