Wing Chun 詠春 (咏春 Yǒng Chūn) is the largest famous non-sport Cantonese martial art ( KungFu 功夫 ) for turn weakness into a strength.
Wing Chun is a unique soft survival defense art of martial art than combat sport which means defense under unfair conditions and environments which means:
Wing Chun a property similar to running water for utilized soft power and recycle power from the opponent for its own advantage, it is a close-range defense for avoiding clinch for reuse and saving energy. The literally meaning of Wing Chun is "chant spring" which is a Chinese girl's name. Wing Chun as an internal martial art with academic pedagogic starts with internal training rather than physical/external. Which means it starts with the martial art theories and mind training and control, but also the internal energy (bio-energy) for soft-power development. The Wing Chun system is very unique and very different kind of martial art and is based on female conditions. Our Wing Chun is also adapted for people that need energy rather than having energy.
Wing Chun is not an athletic martial art, it is more about how to overcome the need for athleticism and is therefore not adapted for young and athletic people. Wing Chun is a more systems architecture based on concepts and principles. Learning Wing Chun is similar to how to learn a language with generic grammar programmed for real-time reactions. Learn Wing Chun is a process of understanding the theories, know how to perform, but also apply it in as a real-time reflex.
Wing Chun Academy Association - Sweden 詠春拳學會 - 瑞典¸ ( WCAA-Sweden ) is educating Wing Chun instructors/pedagogues and practitioners (beginners) in an academic way rather than provide pure training. WCAA-Sweden linage has the holistic approach for developing you to become a master with both theory and practice with continuous improvements as life-style for awareness, anti-stress/calmness, survival mind, health/wellness and successful art for your life. WCAA-Sweden is also acting as Wing Chun mentor or supplier to associations and for enabling you to start your own Wing Chun school.
WCAA-Sweden Wing Chun is currently the only Ip Man /Yip Man 葉問 2nd generation Wing Chun academy in Stockholm Sweden, lineage registered & certified direct under the grandmaster Ip Chun / Yip Chun 葉準 at Hong Kong. WCAA's Wing Chun is founded and further developed by Sifu (master) Peter Yeung for becoming more as a complete internal martial art, read more at below:
Wing Chun is known as one of the most effective defense martial art designed for being practice by a weaker physical person, the defense movements are direct in timing without extra movements, the practice focus is not on external physical training. The training focuses are on the internal process of programming a few core principles from the controlled brain part called C-system (conscious) to the brain X-system (reflective). This process can be effectively be done under mindfulness focusing and with scenario/case simulation in the brain without training partners since a training partner has much lower availability. The training partner role is more for emulation training of scenarios/cases.
Wing Chun techniques/movements are soft and very small which require high precision of movements and positions under close distance, all movements are also multitasked between arms and intention mind under multi-dimension. Even the basic moments are few but can be performed at different levels based on ambition. Wing Chun is based on recycling power from the opponent for its own advantage. Wing Chun requires own body movement control and awareness before control and awareness can be done on an opponent. Therefore ChiSao training method one of the most important partners training method is an efficient and controlled test & exercise method for emulating close-range combat. Wing Chun consists of a different component or building block that creates architecture in a context, the training and learning are based on to build the different components before integrating it together into a working system.
Wing Chun is not a martial sport for competition with rules and judges, it is designed for survival defense, therefor is the Wing Chun system designed with build-in risks mitigation. WCAA is applying Wing Chun combat strategy/tactics for defense other martial arts, so we training sparring and emulation against other martial arts. Distance control and flexible footwork movements are some of the most basic components for keeping the Wing Chun distance without being trapped.
WCAA is also teaching self-defense scenarios based on the Wing Chun principles. We separate the concept of self-defense from a battle fight, since battle fighting is an agreed decision between 2 persons with or without rules, while self-defense is non-agreed under a survival, unfair (more than one attacker or maybe with weapons) and unprepared situation.
WCAA Wing Chun increase also the internal and soft aspects of the practitioner such as teamwork, awareness, and control of the physical and mental part which includes also the health improvement as a side effect.
WCAA is an academy which means it teaches practitioner the theory and applies academic pedagogic like university level, so the practitioner is responsible for it own training and development. For success with our Wing Chun requires so-called. DMLP i.e. Discipline Loyalty Motivation Patience. Learning by teaching is one of the important concepts that we are applying together with the traditional Kungfu family concept within the team.
One of the WCAA concepts is applying the Wing Chun to practical fighting scenarios from other martial arts, therefore our traditional Baat Cham Dao weapon form is applied against other weapons e.g. Japanese Katana, for implementing that WCAA is aligned with our partner Realistic Sparring Weapons (RSW) from Hong Kong.

Peter Yeung is the Sifu and founder of Wing Chun Academy Association, one of the reasons for developing his own Wing Chun and school is there are no other schools aligned to his concept.
The goal for creating a niche internal Wing Chun system for both effective defense and health with enabling efficiency against other martial arts, this is aligned with the traditional Wing Chun pedagogic starting with the internal part based on the principles from 1st form SiuNimTao internal concept.
The perigonal goal is to create an academic way of teaching Wing Chun with the underlying theoretical models and architecture in order to educate instructors to master the system, but also to enable further development of it. The ambition of this academy is to have highly motivated students with high ambitions.
One of the Sifu's IT hobby is about DevOps for this web application as part of the Wing Chun education with digitalization and automation of administrative processes. The goal is to enable the students to start their own Wing Chun school or other associations by using a common platform.
Sifu has not the best body from the start with the energy for practice external and athletic martial arts, but martial art is very interesting and he has a passion for developing the internal part of Wing Chun which can increase both health and practical defense. This is one of the reason why sifu develop this internal Wing Chun so that people like him can still practice deep martial art and keep the health.
