Let me Introduce myself...

Welcome to Ling’s Wing Chun Kung Fu Academy!

We offer classes in Yang-style Tai Chi, Wing Chun and Lion Dance. Self-defense classes are also available on request.
At Ling’s Wing Chun Kung Fu Academy, we value respect, discipline, and empowerment. All of our classes are mixed styles, and children and adults are in the same classes. Our goal is to bring families together. When families train together, they build a stronger bond with each other.

For kids, we focus on cultivating respect, discipline, defense, and physical conditioning. For adults, we try to accommodate to specific needs and goals. Whether they want to accomplish health goals, increase their confidence, learn how to defend themselves, or just want to learn about a different culture, we try out best to achieve whatever they set their minds to.

Ip Man Wing Chun

Wing Chun is a simple and direct fighting art that specializes in close quarter combat. This style teaches you to rely on your skill rather than strength against a bigger and stronger opponent.

There are a few different styles of Wing Chun. Ling’s Wing Chun Kung Fu Academy follows the Ip Man Wing Chun lineage. Ip Man had many students, his most famous being Bruce Lee. Bruce Lee taught Wing Chun in California during the 1960’s. Bruce used Wing Chun and other fighting systems to create his own Jeet Kune Do style. The Chinese Military as well as some European countries have adopted the Wing Chun fighting system into their training.
