WHAT is Mui Faa Wing Chun
The Mui Faa academy teaches Wing Chun Kung Fu to an excellent standard. Teaching efficient skills and opponent weaknesses, our approach is practical and realistic for anyone to learn, regardless of gender or age.
Students begin by learning the fundamental hand form of the Wing Chun system Siu lim tao or little idea form. The form is the ideal intro to the system as it introduces basic hand techniques. However it also contains very important principles, body conditioning and first element of internal energy generation which students are encouraged to learn and apply.
As the student progresses they are taught the two progressive hand forms each encompassing new hand techniques but more importantly the new principles which build on the foundations of the first form. Additionally students apply their technique utilising sparring, and in pairs train a reflex and energy application training tool called chi sau or sticky hands. Chi sau is great for improving fighting reflexes but also great fun.
Other training tools include the use of the wooden dummy, a highly effective aid which refines a student’s focus of energy, position, stance work, angular attack / defence and allows application of fighting technique.
By learning how and why to apply specific techniques and energy a student is trained how defend themselves, but also has the knowledge to pass on and grow the system to future generations.
