WING CHUN MARTIAL ARTS TO BE ESTABLISHED IN THE PHILIPPINES


PhilBoxing.com


Martial arts gets a big boost this week when the masters of Wing Chun arrive on March 4 to establish the Wing Chun Association of the Philippines.

Grand Master Sifu Dancun Leong who reportedly is a trainer of the US Navy Seals, the FBI and SWAT is scheduled to arrive in Manila along with other WingChun Masters to introduce applied Wing Chun as an alternative martial arts.


They will also set up the association’s headquarters at the Diliman Preparatory School (DPS) campus.

The Wing Chun masters are scheduled to arrive in the Philippines in a visit coordinated by Yuri Timg of the US, a Wing Chun master based in the Philippines.

Those arriving are Lt. Col. Donald Presto, Allan Lee, the master and founder of Wing Chun, New York, Zeng Huiming and Mo Xining of China and Li Hon Ki who covers Brazil and Argentina and Florian of Switzerland.

Presto was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for actions while leading a section of helicopters on a casualty evacuation mission in Iraq in April 2003 and subsequently reported to the US Presidential Helicopter Squadron of President George Bush in June 2005.

Retired Marine colonel Oliver North, host of “War Stories with Oliver North” on the Fox News Channel flew aboard Presto’s aircraft that day with a cameraman to capture footage for his TV series and said he was impressed by Presto’s skillful airmanship.

North was quoted as saying “He was totally calm despite all the gunfire that day. He was remarkably confident and professional. You can’t beat it. It’s what you look for in a marine. What a great pilot!”

The masters also plan to instantly accredit Wing Chun Philippines as a Wing Chun New York global affiliate along with Wing Chun Brazil, Argentina, Switzerland, and Hong Kong.
Pangilinan says that in partnership with DPS, the Wing Chun Association of the Philippines aims to promote Wing Chun to other institutions, schools, military camps, government agencies and alike, to establish different local Wing Chun associations and affiliates.

The association plans to seek accreditation as a National Sports Association of the Philippine Olympic Committee.

Wing Chun is practiced in over 64 countries around the world and is regarded as the world’s most popular form of Southern Kung Fu.
Wing Chun practitioners believe that the person with the better body structure will win and that a correct Wing Chun stance is like a piece of bamboo – firm but flexible, rooted but yielding. This structure is used to either deflect externam forces or redirect them into the ground.

Wing Chun originated from China around 280 years ago when the leading Kung Fu Masters and the Elders of Shaolin developed a master martial arts style that would overcome the style by the soldiers of the Manchu government which the monks wanted to overthrow. The elders combined the best of different martial arts into one system.

One monk, Ng Mui, successfully escaped an attack to the monastery. He met Yim Yee and his 15-year-old daughter Wing Chun who was being forced by a local bully to marry him. Ng Mui taught Wing Chun fighting techniques to protect herself. Wing Chun mastered the techniques, challenged the bully to a fight and beat him.

When Wing Chun married, she also taught Kung Fu to her husband. The techniques were then passed on and on until Wing Chun Kung Fu reached the now known grandmaster of modern Wing Chun, Ip Man, who was Bruce Lee’s martial arts master. The life of Ip Man was made into a movie in 2008 that won best film and best action choreography at the 28th Hong Kong Film Awards. #
