Wing Chun is a soft internal style of southern Chinese martial art which is highly effective for vibrant health and practical self-defense.  Park Ave Wellness is the premier training studio in the USA offering instruction in two of the rarest lineages of Wing Chun.  Dr. Leung Jan's famed Gulao village Pin Sun Wing Chun and the art of Siu Lin Tao as taught by Red Boat opera actor Yik Kam.

Gulao village Pin Sun Wing Chun was developed in the 1890's by the late King of Wing Chun.  Dr. Leung Jan refined and fused the essence of his life's knowledge to create his new system.   Pin Sun Wing Chun is known for its relatively simple training, practical applications and specializes in a unique method of physical conditioning and dynamics.   The result is our signature loose body, short shock force and side body methods which are used for both offense and defense.

   

Pin Sun Wing Chun contains fist, dummy and pole methods.  The art is rich with partner training which is key for developing not only fighting skill but also dexterity of the bridge, physical conditioning and other essential attributes.   The core of Pin Sun Wing Chun is the 'Twelve Hands of Leung Jan" which are all performed while rotating sideways.   Dr. Leung Jan taught this art to his nephew, Wong Wah Sam, who passed his skill to the Fung family.   Park Ave Wellness is the USA HQ for the Gulao Boxing Association and promotes the teaching of Dr. Leung Jan as preserved by the late 4th generation Master Sifu, Fung Ju, and Sifu Henry Mui.

Pin Sun Wing Chun Poem

   Although Wing Chun is rare, and easy to learn, it is mastered only with strong will.

   Practicing it often will change you, Siu Lin Tao, Som Bai Fut, Dai Lin Tao.

   Som Gin Choi drops to defend the incoming foot.

   Wu Dip, Seung Lung, Fu Mei Choi and Biu Jee are ferocious.

   Hok Bong counters Jit Jee Kum Kiu, while Wan Wun Yiu and Biu Jee rescue from danger.

   The short bridge attack must stick closely to the body, and Fook Fu is the final level.

   Only few will achieve great skill.

 

The art of Siu Lin Tao is an ancient system of Wing Chun that was taught to Hung Mun members of the Red Boat during the Taiping Uprising. Yik Kam's Siu Lin Tao is a deeply internal martial and healing art rich with culture and cultivation. The sets unique process for development of Zheng Qi (True Energy) & Jin (Force Flow) is truly essentially for both health and self-defense. This elegant system consists of a four section long set, poetry and signature salutations. Yik Kam's art was passed to the Cho family and is often referred to as Ban Jung 'Opera' Wing Chun. .
