Wing Chun Chinatown Tour for Schools (Melbourne)

The Chinese Day Out school excursion is unique in that it offers school students an opportunity to learn about Chinese culture and its values, as well as an introduction to valuable life skills that can help them grow into confident and responsible citizens.

Arriving at our Academy in the heart of Melbourne’s Chinatown, students will be greeted by our Resident Instructor, and Grandmaster William Cheung himself if he is in Melbourne at the time.

The program starts with a visit to the Chinatown Museum where students will certainly appreciate the world’s longest dragon and other valuable Chinese artefacts. Next on the agenda is a stop at the Chinese Antique and Arts Store, before a walk down Little Bourke Street, and a traditional Chinese lunch at Dragon Boat Restaurant.

The Kung Fu lesson will start after lunch and will include self defence techniques, a brief introduction to the benefits of Traditional Wing Chun as well as a talk about philosophy and the importance of discipline, and respect for oneself and others.

We also offer schools an ‘Anti-Bully’ Program, focusingon the ‘be nice’ principal. We teach children and teenagers to avoid conflict by treating others with respect and to (if confronted by a bully) control their anger and meet that conflict with calmness and without violence.

The program covers some very effective self-defence moves, with the emphasis that
any form of violence must be used only defensively and always as a last resort.

Our ‘Stranger Danger’ Program teaches children and teenagers how to avoid and deal with unwelcome attention and contact with strangers. This program is particularly popular with, and beneficial to, young women. In both programs, students learn how to develop the following skills:

*Focus *Teamwork *Control *Balance *Memory *Discipline *Fitness *Coordination

These programs can be conducted in as little as two hours during school hours, after school or in the holidays, and can be tailored to meet the needs of each school.

For bookings, further information or to have an introductory CD-rom sent to your school, please contact us at (03) 9663 3588.

Fight Smart in Close-Quarters Combat Using Wing Chun Techniques

By Lucy Haro | Photos by Rick Hustead

In the martial arts, one school of thought holds that you should change your game to match your opponent’s. Example: If you’re a stand-up fighter and you’re facing a grappler, you should immediately switch into grappling mode. Problem is, that requires you to train to such an extent that each subset of your skills is superior to the skills of a person who focuses on only that range of combat. Your grappling must be better than a grappler’s, your kicking must be better than a kicker’s and your punching must be better than a puncher’s. It’s a tough task, to be sure.

Bruce Lee and William Cheung – The Early Years

Before Bruce Lee was a martial arts star, he was a young actor, bullied by his schoolmates and often getting into trouble. In this 1992 interview, Wing Chun Kung Fu Grandmaster William Cheung recounts Lee’s early days of training and the difficulties he faced as a martial arts prodigy.

Dragon Warrior – Grandmaster William Cheung

This is a story like any great action movie. Full of drama, pain and survival, gangsters and street fighters, and at the centre of the story is the hero. Some of the parts that make up this story would seem too good to be true but that’s what makes the tale of Grand Master William Cheung so intriguing. Now in his sixties there are hundreds of tales surrounding the life of William Cheung. In creating this article it was painful deciding which parts to include and which to omit but hopefully what follows is as entertaining to read as it is to hear firsthand.

Wing Chun Dim Mak


It was a typical hot summer afternoon in Las Vegas in the mid-1980s. For some reason, my sifu, William Cheung, insisted that we train outside in the sweltering heat instead of in the air-conditioned workout room behind the house.

Bruce Lee’s Contact Reflex Training

(by Si-Fu Eric Oram, extracted from a 1997 edition of Australasian Blitz Magazine)

Cross Arm Chi Sao

Once the practitioner has achieved a certain degree of proficiency from the other chi sao exercises (including lop sao exercise), he will move on to cross arm chi sao. As with all chi sao exercises, cross arm chi sao is a drill – the contact sensitivity garnered from these drills will be what carries over into “the street”. However, of all the chi sao exercises, the cross arm drills take the practitioner closest to actual combat. This is because it trains the footwork necessary to bridge the gap between contact distance and exchange distance.

Kick Killing – Traditional Wing Chun is your Secret Weapon Against Leg Attacks

In 1966, karate legend Joe Lewis rocketed to stardom by winning Jhoon Rhee’s U.S. Nationals in Washington, D.C. Incredibly, it was his first tournament, and he won every single point with only one technique – the side kick.

Cheung’s Meridian Therapy for Sports Injuries and Better Health

(extracted from Australasian Blitz Magazine )

In today’s world, many of the diseases and illnesses of modern society are degenerative and self-attacking in nature as a result of emotional stress, exposure to toxic chemicals and pesticides, lack of exercise and poor diet. This results in abnormal organ function and reduced co-operation between organ systems.

Western scientific medicine is generally designed to detect disease, not to restore balance. If no obvious cause of illness or injury is found, say a bacteria or reduced red blood cells, then treatment tends to be impossible or imprecise.

Chinese medicine looks at the condition of the whole person and always tries to restore normal functions and balance, considering disease or injury a disharmony of the body process.

10 Wing Chun Kung Fu Principles

by Eric Oram (extracted from Black Belt Magazine, April 1999)

From the time I was 11 until the time I was 14, I studied karate in Las Vegas. The students at that school were supposed to commit to memory hundreds of techniques that were hypothetical responses to various self-defense situations. It was difficult to remember them all, but I strove to do my best – until I began watching the black belts spar.

Ol’ Faithful – Wing Chun Wooden Dummy

by Kimberly Owens (Assistant Editor for “Martial Arts Training” Magazine)

Looking for a reliable training partner? Look no further than the Wing Chun Wooden Dummy. This traditional training device can enhance your speed, accuracy, power, timing, mobility, flow and visual and contact reflexes.

A good training partner can be hard to find. Some are too lazy, some talk too much and some just don’t want to get up in the morning. What are you supposed to do?

Find a new partner, what else?

Ideally, you’ll find a partner who is unforgiving of mistakes. Someone who can take a punch. A kick. Someone who is always ready to train. Doesn’t complain. Is never late. And never cancels training sessions due to an injury.

Does this perfect partner exist?

You bet. Meet your new partner: the wing chun wooden dummy.
