The aim of the IWKA is to spread the authentic IWKA Wing Tjun system throughout the world, as handed down in the direct lineage from it’s founders until the present day.
At the IWKA we value high teaching standards. We have no “secrets” and our curriculum offers a very structured way to learn Wing Tjun Kung Fu.
The Wing Tjun we teach differs from the majority of other schools and lineages, in the way that we don’t rely on localised muscular strength. Instead, we utilise sensitivity, footwork, structure, concepts and principles to deal with attacks that are delivered by stronger, and/or faster people.
We advocate the “soft” approach to Wing Tjun due to its virtually limitless possibilities. The IWKA also offer a unique, systemized structure to train your tendons. Strong tendons not only support a longer and healthier life, but are also very important in self-defense when dealing with brute/strong, muscular force from your opponent.
Force against force (i.e. direct blocks instead of neutralization and redirection of power) go only so far and fail when the opponent is stronger. The soft approach however can be improved upon and utilised for a whole lifetime by anyone. Regardless of size, strength, gender or age.
