One area that makes a large difference to how you are percieved and how confident you feel is our presentation skills. Once you can control the perception people have of you, it is much easier to be confident about your abilities.

    • Safe & Fun
    The WT system at its root is a scientific form of self defence. It educates its practitioners in all stages of attack from the psychological build up to the physical defence. Used by elite police units all over the world including the FBI, SEK, RAID and NOKS, in addition to being the foremost school in civilian self defence, WT is considered the ultimate stage in the evolution in self defence.
    The most important aspect of any system of self defence even before its effectiveness is that when it is being learned it is both safe for the practitioners and enjoyable. Since being attacked is usually a once in a lifetime experience, there seems little point in practicing a system which over a lifetime of practice will have exposed you to more danger and unpleasantness than the original threat.

    Objectivies Of WingTjun
    The main objective of Wing Tjun (or Wing Chun as it is commonly spelt) is to be a realistic system of self-defense. WT does not focus on fighting “techniques”, instead relying on fighting and energy principles to be followed at all times. The central idea is that, under pressure, it is impossible to visually recognize the precise direction and speed of an attack and make a conscious decision on an effective way in which to react, all within the very brief amount of time you have before your opponent's attack lands. Rather, one must (counter) attack immediately in a very direct and protected manner and rely on reflexes to determine how to react if the opponent's attack continues to pose a problem. Chi Sao, or “sticking hands” trains students to respond reflexively to the speed, force, and direction of an attack, based on tactile information - which the human brain processes much faster than visual information.
    The main difference between Wing Tjun and other Wing Chun styles is the  teaching method. The style's creator SIfu Sergio developed the system to be easier to learn and teach compared to more traditional styles of Wing Chun.
