  • A 330 year-old, ultramodern martial art;
  • Purely concept-oriented;
  • Great for you - but a nightmare for any would-be attacker!

Let us show you that you can do what you never thought you were capable of.

You can find us at two convenient locations:

Wing Tsun is not a style. It is an art designed to free you from all preconceived notions about "fighting", "combat", and "self=defense."

In the process, you gain confidence, balance, power, and a heightened sense of your mind, body, and surroundings. The end product is a brand new you.

At Houston Wing Tsun, we want you to learn this new art as quickly, but also thoroughly as possible. Take a look at our student, Jardin, who has mastered a pretty involved variable flow drill of attacks and counters in only six months!

While other schools teach endless repetitions of unrealistic drills that never happen in real situations, we focus on the principles that underlie all hand-to-hand combat while enabling you to react to physical threats as if your body was on "auto-pilot".


One example of that is what we call "street punk chi sau", an adaptation of the usual "poon sau" drill in Wing Tsun:

Wing Tsun is not a "style" of Kung Fu. It is an art, but it is primarily a MARTIAL art. Just like a painter doesn't simply copy his master's brush strokes or paintings, but adopts, adapts and discards to develop his own "style", you as a student will learn to adopt, adapt, or discard the movements we teach to for "your own Wing Tsun".

But Wing Tsun is not only an art, it is also a science. It is best seen as a mode of inquiry into fighting situations and principles. To stay real and applicable, it has to remain subject to testing and re-testing at all times, so it can grow.

Otherwise, it dies.

That is the reason Wing Tsun was given its name. The name means "eternal springtime" or "forever growing". If you try to cast it in stone or seal it in plexiglass, it may still look pretty, but it also dies. Then, to stay truthful, you would have to change its name into "forever dead."

Here at Houston Wing Tsun Central, we keep this endless process of testing and re-testing alive. Strangely, in the process, we often discover that we don't really have to change Wing Tsun at all. Instead, we usually find that we are simply exploring all of its existing possibilities to the max. "Wing Tsun" is already flexible enough to accommodate that process - just like water.

So, forgive me for paraphrasing the late great Bruce Lee, who famously said "be water, my friend":

It's Your Body. It's Your Mind. It's Your Wing Tsun!
