What Can I Expect from Classes?
Many people are often intimated by martial arts classes. You won't find the typical ego, competition or pressure with our classes. We believe that learning and training should be fun, exciting, and done in the spirit of cooperation and in a family type environment. There is no room for ego or competition in our classes.
Students are encouraged to help and support each other to be the best they can be. You will measure your own progress against yourself - not anyone else. And you'll make new friends that can last a lifetime!
Do I Need to Have a Martial Arts Background?
Absolutely not. While a Martial Arts background can be helpful in certain circumstances, we find that sometimes, those with no background actually find it easier to learn the concepts since they have no preconceived notions of what they "should be doing".
Do I Need To Be In Good Shape To Try Classes?
No. However if you are interested in getting in shape, learning a martial art like Wing Chun is a great way to do it. Martial arts are fun, and can be a great mental workout as well as a physical one! When you start, we really encourage you to work at your own physical comfort level. Over time, you'll notice great improvements in your physical strength and stamina. We even have people who have lost weight from starting their Wing Chun Classes!
Are Wing Chun Classes Suitable for Women?
Yes - Wing Chun is great for women. According to Wing Chun legend, the art of Wing Chun Kuen was developed by a woman, Ng Mui, and passed on to Yim Wing Chun. Wing Chun focuses on using good structure, angles and sensitivity to help overcome an opponent - not brute strength. So it's a great way for women to learn self-defense.
What Should I Wear to My First Class?
For the first class, you can wear a t-shirt (no t-shirts with questionable, or inappropriate logos/phrases), athletic pants (or track pants), non-marking soft soled indoor shoes or bare feet.
Is There A Regular Uniform I Have To Wear?
Yes. The uniform is a Revolution Wing Chun Kung Fu T-shirt (which is included when you sign up for classes).
You can wear sweat pants, athletic pants or board shorts. Shoes should be soft-soled, non-marking, indoor running shoes or wushu shoes (Barefeet at Mississauga location ONLY).
What Does A Typical Class Cover?
A typical class will cover: Martial Foundations (basic drills, conditioning, coordination, balance, stretching, etc); Wing Chun Single Person drills; Wing Chun Two Person Drills (chi sau, pak sau, defenses); Wing Chun forms and theory.
I Heard that Wing Chun is a Martial Art That Focuses Mostly on Fighting - How Do You Teach it?
Wing Chun is indeed a very effective, practical "street-smart" martial art that you can use to defend yourself in practically any situation. Our classes will teach you the skills to do this. However while we focus on training you in the study and understand of Wing Chun, we are not a "fight club". We do not encourage violence or aggression in classes.
Will I Learn Self-Protection / Self-Defense?
Yes. As part of the regular classes we teach self-protection techniques, explain both how and why they work. You then get time to practice these techniques in class.
