Wing Chun is sometimes spelled in other ways for example Ving Tsun. It originated in China and combines both physical and mental Martial art training. It became famous because the late Bruce Lee practised this style under Yip Man. It is also popular for being a very practical form of self defence, now practised all over the world by men and women of all ages. There are numerous benefits that come from practising Wing Chun; some are obvious and others more subtle. Benefits include: increased confidence and self-esteem, increased attention span and ability to stay focused, improved health and fitness, stress relief, improved ability to cooperate with others, an ability to think laterally and to problem solve, improved patience.
