Revolution Wing Chun in the Toronto Area
About Revolution Wing Chun:
The school was founded in 2006 by Sifu Chuck ONeill – a 3rd generation of Ip Man and creator of the Wing Chun Instructional DVD (and downloadable video series) at EvrrythingWingChun.com and at Amazon here.
In 2018, Sifu Chuck moved to Europe and intends on promoting Wing Chun on the Island of Malta.
Sifu Chuck proudly transferred the responsibility of promoting Revolution Wing Chun in North America to his senior instructors, Sifu Dan Siswanto and Sifu Brandon Schlueter-Cat in 2018.
Why Revolution Wing Chun?
In 2011, we changed our name from the Canadian Wing Chun Fellowship to Revolution Wing Chun as we felt it more accurately reflected what we offer our students.
Because we do not believe in simply accepting and passing on the principles of Wing Chun Kung Fu passively.
While we respect and learn from the proven traditions of the past, we also believe in testing our skills and techniques to ensure they are adequate for today’s real-world environment.
Revolution is about fighting against our own mediocrity and choosing to pursue excellence in everything we do (including martial arts).
Revolution is about being fluid in our training – open to change in training methods and seeking optimal methods of improvements.
Revolution is about respecting traditions but not simply accepting them at face value.
We believe in exploring them and investigating for ourselves to see if they work. By doing this we become stronger, more confident and truly developed as martial artists.
Oh yes, and Revolution is also about having fun while we do this!
How Do We Do This?
We explore Wing chun across 2 different family lines (Ip Man-Moy-Yat and Wong Shun Leung) to study how to optimally work the Wing Chun principles and theories in real life application.
This enhances students understanding of the art, rather than just studying one line alone. (This is not something offered in most Wing Chun schools as Sifu Chuck has trained in the two different lines.)
We also draw upon Sifu Chuck’s experience as a close quarters protection specialist (former bodyguard through the International Training Commission), PPCT defensive tactics instructor (Pressure Point Tactics) and World War 2 Combatives training to further round out our self defense training.
Basically we’re all about testing and teaching what REALLY works in a fight scenario – not what looks good on a movie screen (but will get you killed in real life).
We also explore the cultural aspect of martial arts with special trips, seminars and social events.
