Wing Chun , The short yet effective martial art first made famous by the Late Great Bruce Lee , A simple style once championed by a young woman by the name of Wing Chun.
( Praise Spring )
It is known for its easy learning yet scientific approach to self defense. The style has been widely used in the martial art film industry because of its practical use yet ease of control. It is considered as one of the most effective fighting forms to come out of southern China .
The story of Wing Chun is that the style was first taught to her by a nun of the Shaolin Temple , who shortened some of the patterns down and combined them with simple two person exercises and with the use of some basic training equipment to produce a highly effective self defense form that that used technique over strength and sense over aggression that could be mastered quickly by anyone regardless of size.
