This seminar is sure to be an unforgettable experience, as participants will get the chance to learn from a master of martial arts.
Exciting news! We have launched a new progress tracking feature to help you stay on track with your online learning.

What are the origins of Wing Chun?
You probably know that Wing Chun is an effective self defence style, but did you know who invented it and why? Read on to learn about the 17th century nun who hated bullies and why the martial art she invented is so special.
Build on strong foundations
Every journey has a beginning and every martial arts practice has core foundational techniques to practice. There are three basic forms in Wing Chun, each of which builds upon the previous form and introduces new techniques and principles. Read on to learn about the first in our spotlight series, Siu Lim Tao. If you have questions, why not use the in-app comment section? Leo and the Wuji team read every comment and will reply with advice if needed.
Siu Lim Tao, which translates as "Little Idea" is the first and most fundamental form of Wing Chun Kung Fu. It is considered the foundation of the entire system and is practiced by beginners and advanced practitioners alike.
Siu Lim Tao is designed to develop proper posture, alignment, relaxation, and centreline control. The form consists of a series of movements that are performed slowly and deliberately, with a focus on precision and attention to detail.
Learning Siu Lim Tao can improve body awareness, focus, coordination, self-defence skills, and mind-body connection. It is essential for anyone learning Wing Chun.
