Five Star Google Review:
"Joint Effort Chinese Martial Arts and Health Practices teaches
Wing Chun in a professional and friendly manner. The classes are filled with a mixture of different skill sets,
but everyone there are extremely welcoming.
I started only a couple of months ago and aim to continue". Alex
"Thanks for a good session tonight. Always worth it ...!!" Mark G
Wing Chun (Eternal Springtime Fist) is a South Chinese system of Kung Fu (the word can mean application of technique). It is characterised by its fast hand work, based on spring energy and simultaneous block and attacks, practical low kicking, and sensitivity in redirecting the attacker's force.Considered one of the best Chinese fighting arts for self defence, the Ip Man style of Wing Chun is known largely for methods taught in 1940`s Hong Kong, but our forms are those from 1930` Foshan as taught to Lun Gai (photo above)
Although all adults over 18 are welcome we especially cater for mature individuals including those considering a change to their current system or activities. We also welcome women who wish to learn self defence. At our Beeston Wing Chun classes we concentrate our Wing Chun training on partner work, sensitivity drills (chi sau), forms practice (similar to Karate katas), reaction drills and Wing Chun techniques such as lap sau, and self-defense applications. Power development is practiced, such as inch punch and pad, shield and wooden dummy work. Semi contact sparring and the distinctive chi sau sparring is also practiced when students are confident and controlled. Eventually the weapons of the system are employed (butterfly short swords and pole).
COVID-19: We are moving back into the Community Centre on May 20th 2021. Social distancing and hygiene precautions in place. Message to book a space.
These shorter duration classes are for those who have forms at their disposal to practice in between bouts of stretching, exercise, pad work, alignment checking and shadow boxing. Partner work to recommence in late June
Yes, Personal training ( One to one ). You can be taught in the comfort and privacy of your own home (travel costs apply) or at our Beeston Venue. I can also travel/host small group seminars.
You might also consider Chinese Combat Fitness ( A sort of Boxercise ) £9.99 for 30 mins and Womens Self Defence and the martial aspects of our "No Faith" Tai Chi lessons.
Contact us first by phone or email so we can discuss your requirements. Come to sessions with an open mind and loose, comfortable exercise clothing including trainers. Experienced students from other schools do not necessarily need to abandon their forms and learn ours. After 2-3 weeks, if you like our approach, we expect you license with our Chinese Martial Arts Association and the Governing body. (£23.00) We then expect you to purchase uniform.(£22.00)
