"INNA LILLAHI WA INNA ILAIHI RAAJIUN" The Wing Chun School has lost one of our most favourite sons. A true warrior a real man a brother and a devout Muslim. Saturday 22nd April 2017 Abu Bilal Abdullah Pa Abdou Khan. He will be sorely missed by us all. Heart felt condolences to his family.

About us


The Wing Chun School Kung Fu, for the purpose of Self Defence and Health & Vitality, based on the Yip Man Wing Chun Kung Fu system through the lineage direct from Grand Master Ip Ching.

The Wing Chun School formally opened in September 1990, under the tutelage of Garry McKenzie. Back then there was the one school in Hackney, but within a couple of years schools in Leyton, Enfield, London's West End, Cyprus and Norway followed. We host regular mixed adult classes, womens classes and childrens classes; private tuition for individuals and small groups is also available. All schools are fully equipped with all the apparatus needed for effective Wing Chun Kung Fu practice. The Wing Chun School does not concern itself with labels, hence just "The Wing Chun School". Therefore terms like 'Authentic', 'Pure', 'Classical', etc. are not used. The aim of our school is to teach effective Wing Chun technique, therefore open-mindedness & research is needed. Up until more recent times the Wing Chun history has been given to us through the teaching of the late Grandmaster Ip Man. We now know there are more branches of the Wing Chun Kung Fu system, however, being from the lineage of the Great Grand Master Ip Man we respect the history given to us by him. The Wing Chun School Instructors

The Wing Chun system itself is straightforward in it's approach, both in teaching and application. Regardless of personal interpretation, Ip Man has key principles that all masters of the system should know. For example: 'Economy of Motion', and 'Conservation of Energy' - these two principles intertwine and relate to each other. Basically the practitioner must think of Directness as opposed to Indirectness. The Wing Chun Style has probably one of the shortest training syllabus amongst the 'Traditional' Chinese Martial Arts, based on a scientific & mathematical approach to combat.

Once a teacher, always a teacher - By Sifu Dawud Tsan.

'A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step'

I would like to begin my first blog entry by talking a little about the purpose of this website and how I started my Wing Chun journey.

Firstly I thank God the most merciful for giving me guidance and patience to achieve my goals so far. I thank my parents who have raised and nurtured me. I thank my wife who has supported me every step of the way.

I thank my SiFu Garry Mckenzie who accepted me into 'The Wing Chun School' (TWCS) family and taught me the complete Wing Chun system... Read more

(18 October 2017)

Sifu Garry McKenzie Chief Instructor of TWCS held a well-attended student seminar Sunday 7th May. The event covered aspects of TWCS combat philosophy which ultimately brought everyone who attended to mind-set aspects to why and for what reasons we train. The idea of this seminar was not merely to see what new could be learnt but more of a reality check. Looking at some of the tools we already had and REALLY seeing if they met the standard. Asking and answering the difficult questions. Have we done enough?.... Or is what we are doing to get ourselves prepared for combat enough?

The Wing Chun School Oslo Norway Seminar.
Sifu Garry McKenzie has just finished another excellent 2 day seminar at the Oslo Norway branch. The students showed great enthusiasm and trained like warriors. Especially impressive is their loyalty to their Sifu Vidar Gran who has done a great job in guiding their development and training. A very talented group. Keep up the great work.
