Our school provides a comprehensive and holistic curriculum in Chinese Martial Arts to empower every individual to reach for their potential in mind, body, and spirit. The curriculum is designed to provide the necessary and practical tools to develop your martial skills, benefit the health of your body, create more mindfulness in your daily life, and ultimately support you to develop the insight for self-mastery and discovery.
Our courses emphasize a strong foundation in the basics to solidify the understanding of the core principles and concepts of Wing Chun, so that we may build upon them for more advanced study and application. We strongly believe that every person has the capacity to become proficient in self-protection and access the timeless wisdom of Chinese martial arts. The only real limiting factor is the level of commitment and active participation one puts towards the process.
Proper training develops and refines both body and mind. As well as working to improve physical skills such as joint mobility and tactile sensitivity, our teaching methods encourage you to concurrently hone your mental skills, such as awareness, focus, and analytical capacity. By following this way, our goal is to support our students to master learning how to learn. Students are further encouraged to integrate what they have learned and put knowledge into practice in order to problem-solve in their daily lives.
Through focused training in skills and techniques, repetition, adjustments, various activities, partner training, and discussion, students gain the confidence and experience to apply these skills in real-life situations.

Wing Chun Class
Build on the fundamentals of Wing Chun in our Adult Class. Learn techniques for alignment, force generation, relaxation, mindfulness, and self-defense. Practice the application of these skills through a combination of individual study, adjustments from our instructors, drills, and partner training. We emphasize a supportive and focused atmosphere for students to challenge themselves safely.
KIDS & YOUTH
Wing Chun builds physical skills AND life skills for kids.
Children have a natural need to challenge and develop their bodies, minds, and spirits. It’s no secret that intellectual progress and mental training are accompanied and even improved by proper development of physical motor skills such as hand-eye coordination, balance, strength, and flexibility. The process of studying any skill or art such as mathematics, playing an instrument, or learning martial arts requires deliberate discipline, focus, perseverance, and guidance.
At Wing Chun Connect, students learn martial arts skills and games in a safe and supportive environment that encourages each student to be and do their best. Our duty as mentors is to provide our students with the tools to build a foundation of useful skills and strong character that will serve them far into the future.
