Practical Wing Chun Shanghai ClubWhat is Practical Wing Chun?Wing Chun is a Chinese self-defence system, which is said to have been created by a woman more than 300 years ago. The system's fundamental principles are economy of movement, efficiency, and technique over strength. The system is focused around the centrelines, diagonal lines and angles. The theory behind the basic elements includes: balance, timing, control and simultaneity in defence and attacks.There are different lineages of Wing Chun depending on the interpretation of the system. We follow Grandmaster Wan Kam Leung who modified and improved the system so it has become more practically applicable, hence the name Practical Wing Chun.How does Practical Wing Chun benefit me?Practical Wing Chun is suitable for everyone regardless of size, gender and age as brute force, strength and acrobatic abilities do not play a decisive role.In addition to learning effective self-defence techniques, you will get in better shape and gain more self-confidence and well-being. You will get an increased motor awareness and thus improved body control and focus of the mind, things you will greatly benefit from in other contexts.What is Active Isolated Stretch?Specialized American therapists developed Active Isolated Stretch (AIS) more than 30 years ago. The principles behind AIS consist of four principles.1. Isolate the muscle to be stretched.2. Repeat the stretch eight to 10 times.3. Hold each stretch for no more than two seconds.4. Exhale on the stretch; inhale on the release.How does AIS benefit me?AIS does not only help you become softer and more flexible, but it can also greatly relieve back pain, neck pain, tension in shoulders and stiff legs. At the same time AIS can also correct bad posture related to profession or sports. As traditional massage may give you a temporary relief from pain with no long term effect, our AIS therapists along with yourself work deep into your body freeing it from pain and discomfort, creating a good body posture and in this way creating the body awareness and well-being that is essential for living a healthy life.
