Is Wing Chun good for women?
Wing Chun is an excellent martial art for women because we do not rely on brute force, but on good technique and efficient body movement. Women train in exactly the same way as the men and experience the same results.
How long are the lessons?
You will see in each club page that ALL our classes run for two hours on their specific evening. This is the optimum amount of time to learn. We have seen that one and a half hour classes are not long enough. Most of our instructors even provide two evenings every week offering 16-20 hours every month of quality Wing Chun tuition.
How much does it cost?
Your first lesson is totally free so you can experience the class and see what Wing Chun has to offer you. The lesson costs vary a little from group to group depending on how many times you train. Please contact the instructor of your local class directly for this information. While looking, why not arrange your Free trial lesson there, on contact the instructor Note: There is no extra fee for learning “sections” (Technician level) programs. Always ask about this if comparing different organisations.
