From January 2023, Wing Chun Academy Associations - Sweden has changed the name to Wing Chun Academy Stockholm. The reason is a strategic change, Wing Chun Academy Stockholm will not longer be associated with associations.
Wing Chun Academy Associations - Sweden (WCAA-Sweden)
Wing Chun Academy Associations - Sweden (WCAA-Sweden) was founded in December 2005 by Peter Yeung as a Wing Chun KungFu (martial art) school on an academy level for Wing Chun associations, is the meaning of the name Wing Chun Academy Associations. The academy's level of school means it is providing an academic level of pedagogical education of Wing Chun as art rather than acting as a training provider, one of the goals is to provide higher education of the Wing Chun martial art and how to apply the art in a situation.
Our website service started in August 2006. Wing Chun Academy Associations - Sweden (WCAA-Sweden) is a non-profit academy with a business model following the Swedish "Hobby Verksamhet" According to Swedish tax authority "Skatteverket" SKV 344. WCAA-Sweden's fee is to cover our hidden cost for bringing the original Wing Chun KungFu to direct from Hong Kong (Ip Chun Wing Chun lineage) since WCAA-Sweden doesn't take any subsidy from the Swedish local government or other organizations. WCAA-Sweden is doing further Wing Chun development of martial arts, wellness, etc.
Within the WCAA-Sweden hobby business concept needs also own Java software development & operations (DevOps) of WCAA-Sweden Mobile/Web IT application tool i.e. for education tool and automatic information/business processing in order to achieve distance learning of the Wing Chun theory with team collaboration, privacy data handling for compliance with IT security, etc. This requires fully own developed and hosted IT solutions for complying with the WCAA-Sweden concept and EU GDPR regulations - 2016/679 regarding privacy data protection. This results in high costs for IT operations, IT solutions, and development, WCAA-Sweden is therefore also applying DevOps.
Wing Chun Academy Association Sweden (WCAA-Sweden) is acting as a supplier to organizations/associations and individuals with Wing Chun services and education framework under the WCAA-Sweden brand, this means that WCAA-Sweden is financially separated without any legal responsibility towards sub-organizations, see our agreement. This includes complete service offerings directly to members/students of the association Wing Chun Academy IF Stockholm (WAIS) or to other academies/associations. WCAA has terminated its association relationship with WAIS.
WCAA-Sweden's aim is to provide high-quality and deep Wing Chun learning for a budget price so that students without a high budget can learn a deeper level of Wing Chun to become an instructor or teachers. Therefore WCAA-Sweden is trying to achieve a small group of motivated students since the business goals are for spreading deeper Wing Chun rather than aim for profit. Therefore WCAA limits the number of students in this school by putting higher requirements on the candidates that apply for becoming a student.

Therefore, WAIS has no financial or economics and does not either apply for any financial contribution (bidrag).
