IWKA WingTjun Martial Arts Student Curriculum
The Concepts curriculum involves Structural Development Forms, Simply Forms, Reflex Development Drills & Tactics. Weapon & Equipment Training.
|Wing chun kuenWing Tjun Kuen (Perpetual Spring Fist)|
The Wing Tjun Kuen set (Sap Yat Kuen) is the core set of Siu Lam Wing Tjun, a basic practice form consisting of 11 sections, which are applied in Chi Sao.
In fact it could also be termed more of a “theory” than a “form” – a set of methods for optimizing the free use of the body to win over a strong attacker introducing the 18 Kiu Sao of Siu Lam Wing Tjun.
|Saam Pai Fat (Three Bows to Buddha)|
According to the Lo family, Saam Pai Fat is the advanced Siu Lam Wing Tjun set of Sun Gam (Dai Fa Min Gam) of the Red Boat Opera.
Like its matching set, Wing Tjun Kuen, Saam Pai Fat consists of eleven sections. Its focus is to expand the ability of the Wing Tjun practitioner to cover all of space and time through the concept of bowing to Heaven, Earth, and Human.
|Fa Kuen (Flower Fist)|
The flower is the symbol of the Sim (Chan/Zen) philosophy of Siu Lam Wing Tjun and Fa Kuen is the special set of the famous Grandmaster Chu Chung Man. This set teaches how to use the entire body for both long and short distance fighting. (NOTE: THIS SET IS NOT PART OF THE ORIGINAL CORE OF SIU LAM WING TJUN SYSTEM)
|Jong Kuen (Structure Fist)|
Jong Kuen (also known as Siong Kung Jong Kuen because in the final Siu Lam Wing Tjun teachings it melds internal and external power), combines fast, agile steps in all directions with whole body movement. The set includes all concepts and principles from the long pole, wooden dummy, etc. In appearance, this last, traditional Siu Lam Wing Tjun set looks similar to a combination of Taijiquan, Xingyiquan, and Baguazhang.
|Muk Yan Jong (Wooden Dummy)|
The Muk Yan Jong contains several sets from different Wing Tjun families: In them are contained the fighting methods of the Muk Yan Hong, the Wooden Dummy Hall of the Southern Shaolin Temple. The Wooden Dummy is not used just to strengthen forearms or shins, but one should train with the sensitivity found in Chi Sao.
|Luk Dim Boon Kwun (Six and a Half Point Pole)|
The pole is the heart of Siu Lam Wing Tjun. With it comes the feeling and understanding of the 6½ principles and concepts used in all types of fighting. The set teaches spring footwork, and continues on to challenge practitioners to make use of their whole bodies.
|Kwun Jong (Pole Dummy)|
The wooden dummy for the long range was, in times past, the secret of Siu Lam Wing Tjun, the fourth and final dummy from the Muk Yan Hong (Wooden Dummy Hall) of the Southern Shaolin Temple. It teaches to close the gap over and over again.
|Fu Mo Siong Dao (Father & Mother Double Knives)|
The Father & Mother Double Knives gives a practical fighting system with sharp weapons and introduces the concept of Yum Yeung (Yin and Yang). The transfer of pole principles to sharp, double-handed weapons also increases fighting spirit.(NOTE: THESE SETS ARE NOT PART OF THE ORIGINAL CORE OF SIU LAM WING TJUN SYSTEM)

3. Biu Ji
Biu Ji is the third form of WingTjun. It means the Thrusting fingers. It referred as an emergency form which Biu Ji moves can help to get things back into a safe situation by recover and remain in control of the centre line when things go wrong in a fight. The moves in Biu Ji are quite deadly and powerful that can cause serious damage to the opponent.
