What skills will
I learn in class?

01
/ ‏‏‎ ‎Forms

Wing Chun has 3 empty hand forms - Siu Lim Tao, Tsum Kiu, and Biu Tze, each with sub-sections focused on different aspects of your skills. These forms shape and define the stages of your training

02
/ ‏‏‎ Footwork

Footwork is vital to fighting while staying safe. Having good footwork is the difference between following Wing Chun principles and avoiding your opponent's strength, or using too much energy and being overwhelmed

03
/ ‏‏‎ Chi Sau

Chi Sau means "Sticking Hands", Wing Chun's answer to training together without getting hurt or hurting your partner. It help develop your abilities and sensitivity, and use the right skills and timing to overcome your opponent

04
/ ‏‏‎ ‎Applications

You will learn many different hands and movements during class, while practicing these techniques with a partner using the correct impetus to naturally and accurately respond in the right situations

My Sigong, Grandmaster Michael Tse wrote:
Today martial arts...classes are often viewed as violent places full of bullies who learn how to intimidate the vulnerable. This is definitely the wrong concept of martial arts.

Training any martial art should make you a better person. Correct training not only makes you healthy, it also makes you happier and nicer to be around. This is the traditional Chinese way and a positive contribution to society as a whole.


With the above in mind, my classes are always conducted with safety and health in mind first – and being a musician, my lessons with my Sifu has never lead me to injury!

At Wing Chun Melbourne, our skills are passed down to us directly from Grandmaster Ip Man, through his eldest son, GM Ip Chun (who is 98 years old and still teaching!), GM Michael Tse - the most senior student in the west, and the founder of the Tse Qigong Centre (1998), Master Darryl Moy - Chief instructor of the Tse Qigong Centre, to Sifu Yelian He.

We have an excellent relationship with our teacher, grandteacher, as well as brothers and sisters around the world. The Tse Qigong Centre has classes internationally, and Wing Chun Melbourne organizes yearly trips and special events to visit and train with as many people as we can!

If you are keen about Wing Chun, come and see what it's all about.

Sifu Yelian He is a certified Wing Chun instructor with the Tse Qigong Centre (est 1990, UK), and is the Centre representative in Melbourne.

Some of his favourite quotes are:

‘Kung fu doesn’t mean fighting skills, kung fu means a skilled person; so you can find kung fu wherever you look – as long as you know how to look.’

'Don't let the skill control you - you must control the skill.'

'If it's a skill, that means anybody can and should be able to learn.'
