The primary focus of Wing Tjun is to defend against an attacker and end the confrontation as quickly as possible. A main objective of Wing Tjun is to be a realistic system of self-defense. Rather than focusing on fighting 'techniques' Wing Tjun focuses on principles of fighting and power which are to be followed at all times. The central idea being that under pressure it is impossible to visually recognize the precise direction and speed of an attack and make a conscious decision on the most effective way to react within such a brief window of time before an attack lands.
Wing Tjun focuses on principles of fighting and power, five distances, and four dimensions which are to be followed at all times. In Wing Tjun, one must counter attack immediately in a very direct and protected manner relying on reflexes to determine how to react. Students learn a softness which prevents restrictions in movement using minimal movements to achieve the necessary and most efficient course of action.
