Wong Long Wing Chun
Wing Chun (or Ving Tsun 詠春) is a Chinese martial art that relies on scientific principles and body mechanics to create an effective and efficient fighting system that is applicable in real life situations.In Wing Chun, practitioners utilize kicks, punches, palm strikes, sweeps, redirection techniques, trapping, controlling techniques,elbows, and much more to over come a stronger opponent, multiple attackers, surprise attacks, and armed attackers.
Wong Long Wing Chun is the traditional Wing Chun system that is named to honor Grand Master Wong Long (Wong Long Ching黃朗正). As one of Great Grand Master Ip Man’s longest ongoing student (for 6 years practicing 4 hours every weekdays), young Wong Long practiced diligently until he finished learning the entire Wing Chun system from GM Ip Man in 1962. After officially completing his training, GM Wong Long was personally asked by GM Ip Man to teach Wing Chun. GM Ip Man and GM Wong Long had maintained a very close relationship up until GM Ip's passing in 1972 (GM Wong Long was there in person when GM Ip Man passed away).
Of all the students under GM Ip Man, GM Wong Long is known to be one of the best because of his dedication and time spent studying Wing Chun. GM Wong Long is one of the only few people to ever finish learning the Wing Chun system from Ip Man: he finished learning Siu Lum Tau, Chum Kiu, Biu Zi, Wooden Dummy, and even the Bat Jam Do. Because of his extensive knowledge in Wing Chun (and his willingness to demonstrate and show challengers), he is known as an exemplary Wing Chun master that many look up to and hope to become.
Wong Long Wing Chun is one of the only few Wing Chun that is still retains the original skill while adapting to the ever growing knowledge of martial arts.
