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.
Sifu Garry McKenzie of The Wing Chun School has just completed another successful two day seminar at the Oslo Wing Chun School branch Norway which is running by Chief Instructor Vidar Gran. The Seminars focus of Chi Sau working on flow of attack and counterattack. Yet again the students showed great enthusiasm and commitment. There was also a grading where all six candidates passed. Well done team Norway!

'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
