This is a collection of my own original art work.
This is information that the Sifu or Teacher of Yǒng Chūn (咏春) / Wing Chun (or the provider of information for anyone) may feel it is necessary to discuss & contemplate prior to beginning to teach/learn the physical aspects of Yǒng Chūn (咏春) / Wing Chun.

Disciple of Wing Chun / 咏春 ~ Yǒng Chūn for life!
I use this mantra to help me consciously acknowledge my continuing goal to be as graceful as water wich immediately adjusts to all situations effortlessly, & to consciously acknowledge that seemingly difficult times are, in fact, opportunities for growth towards my continuous goal of being as water. This mantra brings me continuously towards an increasing sense of true peace. Please try using it to help your own progression towards a continuously increasing state of peace.
This is what I cosider to be an appropriate path for a student of Wing Chun, & it is flexible enough to allow for individual teacher & student preferances.
First & foremost: RESPECT!
Last but NOT least: RESPECT!
The importance of learning to speak Chinese.
Encouragement to open one’s mind.
