15 of the Best Places to Learn Wing Chun in London

Wing Chun is a Chinese martial art that began hundreds of years ago. It was first developed as a self-defense system for women but has become popular among both men and women because of its effectiveness and emphasis on technique over size and strength. Bruce Lee studied and taught Wing Chun before developing his own Jeet Kune Do. Like most martial arts, Wing Chun focuses on total body fitness and health.
