Wing Tzun (also spelled Wing Chun) is a Chinese martial art that dates back to the southern Shaolin Temple. Folklore tells that it was created by a Buddhist female nun who put all the knowledge of the martial arts and condensed it to its most practical, supple techniques, enabling a smaller, weaker person to defeat a larger, stronger person. As the old adage goes, it uses your brains rather than just brute force. Examples of this is the use of redirecting force rather than over powering it. It’s about simultaneously blocking and striking, and trapping and striking, vulnerable body locations with relaxed, explosive speed.
