Eight Pattern Wing Chun Kung Fu

The Difference

On first glance (see book or learning cards) there seem to be some significant differences between Eight Pattern Wing Chun and it's main sources. The most obvious difference is the curriculum. We have compressed 20 Chi Sau sections (some of them very long) into eight relatively short sections. We have integrated ideas from ReakTsun into our Chi Sau. We have shortened the Cham Kiu, Biu Tze and Double Knives forms (back to 108 points as all our forms). We have re-integrated the nearly-lost fourth form (Jong Kyun). And we have switched our long pole set with an other lineage's version.

But these are all just superficialities. The only serious differences are our form of organization and our way of teaching. Despite all the differences, we are still compatible with most other Wing Chun lineages. After all, the concepts should be the same; so you don't have to start from the beginning if you join us and you can use what you learn in your regular Wing Chun school.
