Wing Chun kung fu is a martial art made famous by Bruce Lee and his teacher Ip Man (see the movies). Meditation Wing Chun (created by Charlie Newton) utilizes gentle low impact exercises to facilitate mindfulness and relaxation for wellness, health, and fitness to increase energy and generate enormous power. The forms are easy to learn and may also be used for self-defense. This system incorporates elements of Tia Chi and Chi Kung.
This program is especially beneficial for those over 50, women and children. It is adaptive (to any physical limitation) and does not require strength.
BENEFITS: Meditation Mindfulness Balance Strength Flexibility Calmness Power Health Fitness Self Defense Confidence
