Wing Chun Kung Fu is a martial art of unlimited depth and potential. As an internal martial art, Wing Chun does not rely on brute strength or speed. Through the use of relaxation, focus, alignment and body mechanics, a student proficient in Wing Chun can realistically overpower a bigger stronger ­­­­­­­­­­­person.


Wing Chun is a traditional system of kung fu which has developed over the past few hundred years, resulting in a refined group of very practical techniques which can be applied by anyone with devastatingly effective results.


Although Taoist Path Wing Chun Southend-on-Sea promotes the efficiency of Kung Fu combat, we do not promote violence.  Our aim is to offer tools in preparation to survive a violent confrontation, if ever needed.  However, the lessons we learn in Wing Chun are transferrable to all areas of life.  As the name Taoist Path would suggest, our focus is not only on learning and developing fighting skills, but also being healthy and understanding our place in nature.

Private Lessons

Private class is one of the quickest and most effective way to learn.

Private class is an individual training option for people who prefer to work 1 on 1 or in a small group.  They can be taken as an adjunct to group lessons, or as a standalone training program.
