About this pro

We are a distinct Martial Arts institution specializing in "Yip Man" or "Ip Man" Wing Chun Kung Fu. Our school or “kwoon” is a second home for many of our students. At our kwoon, the student always comes first which cultivates an ego free setting. This allows students to thrive as individuals and become exceptionally proficient at their art.

We provide a well thought out and organized path to educating our students. A linear teaching approach to a mysterious, once secret, art allows superior comprehension and the building of strong fundamental skills, a quality not found in many martial arts schools. In 2010, we trademarked a unique method of teaching "Ip Man" Wing Chun Kung Fu and is known as Wing Chun Boot Camp™.

The secret to our approach is effectiveness. Learned technique and acquired skills must work under duress in real world self-defense scenarios. Therefore, a synthesis of traditional and modern training methods, as well as equipment, must be used to allow full realization of our student’s potential.

In addition the unique design of our kwoon which blends old school Hong Kong with 80’s arcade gaming has not gone unnoticed. In 2015, famed Hollywood stunt and fighting choreographer turned director Art Camacho used our facility for his Sony pictures film “Assassin X”. 

We offer group classes, private training and seminars for adults and children ages 6 and above.
