Wing Chun Kung Fu for Women
For the majority of women, the thought of attending a martial arts class to learn to effectively defend themselves is possibly the worst thought of the day, typically a male dominated environment can be a very intimidating one, women who are looking to defend themselves from being attacked by a male is therefore a scary prospect to train with them.
One of the great things about Wing Chun Kung Fu is that it is said to be the only martial art founded by a woman and takes its name from its legendary ‘founder’; Yim Wing Chun. In Chinese Wing Chun literally means ‘beautiful springtime’ or ‘everlasting spring’.
With this in mind the philosophy of the Wing Chun Class room is very different to others yet gives the female student the ability to learn in an environment that allows them to stay and feel safe yet be given the confidence to train in a way where the new found skills and ability can be developed against predominantly those that it will be needed against in real life situations.
The Wing Chun System is dedicated to work for everyone and certainly lends itself to those of us with a smaller stature and of a weaker position, this is because it relies on Theories and Concepts as opposed to brute strength, Wing Chun is about understanding body mechanics and the use of efficient movement rather than set techniques that may not work against different people, Its about how to avoid using strength and force and a successful student will learn to use their body structure correctly; this is a key element in Wing Chun practice.
Weight Loss and Fitness
Would you like to get fit and lose weight while learning a form of self-defense, Wing Chun is based on technique rather than strength and involves natural cardiovascular exercise compared to many Martial Arts that rely on Brute Strength, Wing Chun is a Martial art that is perfect for women which is why it was invented by a women!
The best way to LOSE WEIGHT is to do it whilst having FUN, this is a well proven method to achieve most things in life, with Regular and continued exercise and setting your goals with a course of a healthy, and balanced diet it all makes to achieve your goals.
What is great about Wing Chun Martial Arts training is that our classes are designed to motivate you to maintain continued exercise in a way that is effortless yet you see great benefits on your journey.
Within the class time you will improve your cardiovascular fitness, tone up and gain the shape that you are looking for as well as de-stress through workout from various pads punching drill, With all of this tailored into fun drills and exercises.
Confidence and Self Esteem
Confidence (Self Confidence) is regarded about how we feel within ourselves from the knowledge that we hold about ourselves!
Self Esteem, How we feel about ourselves based on our perception of what others think about us!
One of these is inwards thinking and the other is outwards thinking, very few people understand how to change these and make them grow within our our minds, this is a big part of your martial arts training and two key elements that grow through your classes, Confidence is grown by the intake of Knowledge, from a self defence perspective we may hold on to a lack of confidence as we feel fear from being attacked by others and do not hold the knowledge to deal with this, Your martial arts classes are designed to grow this area of your confidence.
With greater confidence we give out expressions on to others that change there perception of us and therefore changes the way that they treat you, it is true that the best way to deal with a bully is to stand up against them, you give off greater confidence by doing this and therefore they back down, your self esteem grows as you realise you can do it! Your self esteem goes up!
