“The theory of Wing Chun has no limit in it’s applications”– Wing Chun Kuen Kuit.
The Wing Chun taught at DFWC, is heavily shaped by key principles taught by Mr. Yip Man and the Wing Chun Kuen Kuit, which has been carried down by Grand Master Derek Fung and now by Sifu Mike Tran, who is developing the DFWC method into a unique teaching style that adapts to modern methods.
But this is no walk in the park! DFWC isn’t the sort of Wing Chun you see in the movies and requires a lot of hard work and persistence!
DFWC prides itself on focusing on a few key principles and internal aspects, that lay the groundwork for effective power generation from short distances, there is no fancy hand movements or drills.
In addition, Sifu Mike heavily focuses on building your mental toughness to better prepare you for real-world confrontations. You may have the most powerful punch, but if you can’t use it when you need it, it serves no purpose.
The secret to success in DFWC Wing Chun is the amount of time, effort, and perseverance in the training invested in the class and in your own time, to cultivate and apply key principles. It’s a marathon, not a sprint.
