The main objective of WT is to be a realistic system of self-defense. WT does not focus on fighting “techniques”, instead relying on fighting and energy principles (concepts) to be followed at all times.
What can I expect in the training?
- Forms training
- Strength training
- Reflex training
- Chi-Sau Lat-Sau
- Footwork and kicking drills
- Equipment training
Chi Sau, or “sticking hands” trains students to respond reflexively to the speed, force, and direction of an attack based on tactile information – which the human brain processes much faster than visual information. We train in a non-competitive and respectful atmosphere in order maximize everyone’s learning potential.
Dallas WingTsun™ / Iron Palm has a wide variety of equipment (heavy bags, focus mitts, kick shields, wall-bags, double-end bags, etc.) to help the students develop striking force, coordination and to improve general fitness as passed on by our kung fu ancestors.
