How many are qualified.---
Theres less than 20 in the world certified Teachers from Hong Kong, and one in New Zealand- Sifu Tony Brooks.
Some prefer an unqualified airline pilot to fly them, and also certify them, is interesting, but imposters- who are not teacher certified or even a WC level certified,
are eventually recognised by teachings and association. They do not know any situations because they have nothing to do with Ip Mans Hong Kong School Lineage.
What makes Wing Chun different to other Martial Arts.---
Wing Chun is an Chinese takeaway Martial Art, needed in terroist situations and useful as self protection, bodyguard defense, weapon defense, and offensive anti-terror.
Some Martial Arts take five moves to achieve what Wing Chun does in one. Wing Chun is the Martial Art, many take from, to add skill to their defense/attack.
Many Blocking styles, take impact, and light weights, are not aloud to fight Heavy weights. Wing Chun has ground fighting, has no limits as, releases, eye gouging,
biting, etc is permitted, leading to Wing Chuns typical Standing fighting, like a warring army. Wing Chun teaches to get off the ground, to able, fight more than one.
Some Martial Arts do not require skill because the strongest wins sinario. They do not defend eyes,
throat, bite etc because Rules do not permit, but reality, Rules on the street, is no rules. Respect your enemy, but do not expect him to respect you.
Hoildays, are approcahing ! Preparation, will help stop some major problems, and will stop you wasting time on your holiday. On your lists to do, number one is arrange the "Priority of things to do".
Holidays can be a very dangerous time, more accidentals deaths happen here from drowning, falling, electricution, choking, road accidents etc. Many are dieing to go on holiday, but try not to rush, enjoy the seasons.
MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHY IS WING CHUN DIFFERENT
Most martial arts who use weight catogories, find Heavy weights, colapsing Light weight defense. Heavy and light weights are not permitted to mix weights, in Ring bouts. Wing Chun is different, as it deflects, traps, and detors the opponents energy back, etc without taking the opponents impact force, so weight catogories do not matter in the same way in Wing Chun. Unlike sports, Wing Chuns light weight can spar heavy weights. Sport Martial Arts, do not strike to crippling targets, and they do not use capabilities, such as biting, (small bites work better) so generally, they do not train attack/defence against these too. Wing Chun was created, to be the easiest Martial Defense, with use of the easiest effective motions, for times of peril.
DOES WING CHUN HAVE GROUND FIGHTING AND GRAPPLING. -IS MMA, UFC LIKE WING CHUN.
Yes, Wing Chun has ground fighting, and grappling. But to fight many opponents, you need to be standing. 3 against 1 on the ground, is unfavourable, for grappling or groundfighting. Wing Chun teaches grappling, grappling releases, grappling traps, rapid punches, invisible kicks, elbows and knees, etc. MMA and UFC, are great sports, and because, they are controlled by rules, they are a sport instead of a street defense, of full range targets. MMA and UFC, are one vs one, but 2 vs one is more of a common event, where grappling, becomes slow. Wing Chun will cover, various groundfighting to mutiple oponents standing. Sports rules stop people defending paralysing places, where many real fights strike and use on pub roads, neighbour conflicts, road rage, theft, sexual assaults, where-no rules,no referees ,no limit weapons , maiming ,killing ,crippling ,multiple vs one, is ,not out ruled. These situations, is where Wing Chun, aids a person and their family, in a fast life, Chinese Takeaways , Martial Defense, instead of fighting like a friendly sport style. Learning Wing Chun skill will stop opponents crippling strikes and will aid in a safe exit.
Wing Chun is Guided, by Morals and Ethics, that stops a wing chun fighter, turning into bullies or crimes, that many, including Wing Chun laws, detest . A person with power, and no empathy, ethics or morals -destroys for fun. A destroyer using a martial art, is known by his name,or his teachers name, but not by the martial arts name.
Wing Chun was the first Asian, Mixed Martial Art, of Shaolin Monks against multiple Warlords.
Bruce Lee was the first, Western, Mixed Martial Art, where Wing Chun was mixed with all Western Martial Arts. Bruce Lee mixed trained all of his students, for Bruce Lee to practise against,- and to aid sparring on Hong Kong building rooftops. Bruce Lee eventually kept Wing Chun to himself, after insults by his students regarding WC completion. He changed the name, and now was completed. Bruce Lee qualified his favourite indoor Student, James Lee in Wing Chun, and gave him special Wing Chun skills, and the only co-Book written by Bruce Lee, besides Bruce Lees one single authored yellow book, Lee wrote alone. Bruce Lee returned from the USA, and he offered Ip Man a house, in exchange for more teachings of Wing Chun. Bruce Lee only claimed one Sifu, being Ip Man. In history, Ip Man, had paid his first Wing Chun Teacher, two and a half houses, to join Wing Chun. Ip Mans second Teacher was the famous, Wing Chun root lineage - Famous Bone breaker and Setter, Sifu Dr Leung Jan, who his Son lineage passed to Ip Man via Leung Bik. Wing Chun has answers to neutralize all types of attacks, fast and is easy, and prefered by many, especially those who like, easy.
WHAT IS WING CHUNS INVISIBLE PUNCH
Punching along the centreline to the nose is a blindspot in human eyes. No matter the speed or distance, you only see the same picture, if your lucky. If you round punch, you can see two things, both eyes can now see, speed and position of opponents punch.
WHAT IS A GOAT STANCE
Maybe if you got some ramming goats, maybe it could help, but Jing Ma is a, BodyGuarding stance that correctly looks like an Ice Hockey Goally - standing on ice. I could also say a soccer goally, but a high speed Ice Hockey goally shape, is more like Wing Chuns, Jing Ma . If a goally stood sideways, he would be slow to cover all doors. A ready tennis player also stands like Wing Chuns Jing Ma. If sideways, then you could also Ace, a side standing, tennis player compared to front on stance. Jing Ma, or your goat stance, is also like a basketball front on, stand off, or a skiing neutral stance, bull fighter etc. (but Wing Chun had it first). To stand sideways reduces your target area, but you need best attack options by facing. Regardless, Wing Chun defends 360 around him. When an opponent attacks from behind, Wing Chun unlocks and faces an opponent so you can use all your best attack and defence options. Fighting with your back to an opponent, will be limited and reduce your options. If you disable your opponent, you can run away safely. Keeping your distance is also a form of defence. Sometimes you can run, but you can not leave your family or friends behind. Basic body guarding skills, will give you and friends a chance. If you give up, opponents, can do as they wish.
IS THERE ANY RECOMMENDED FOODS.
A fair balance ratio of foods is good. Too much sugar creates a sugar crash, too less salt creates locked cramp. In cancer research, gluten/ bread is used to keep cancer alive. Human body parts have been replaced with the pigs parts, not monkey parts. Burnt foods are casargenic. The body needs purified Water for All good organ functions. Home distillers can show what sludge and toxins exist in the public water pipes. I recommend Pure Dew, water at Pak n save etc. Feel the difference. Exercise increases Chi flow and keeps the blood fresh, stops stagnant dead blood. If your immune system is too weak, you can not fight bacteria, virusis, toxins, or fungus, very well. Low immune is when, other hybinated hidden diseases take their chance and can emerge like Shingles. Without oxygen, fainting, anger, and tiredness occur. Circulate air in car and where you sleep. Lack of oxygen is known create cot death. Daily Vitamins A, B,C,D,E and Omega oils are recommended. Keep potasium and magnesium levels correct.
DO YOU HAVE A FAVOURITE INSECT, AND IS IT A PRAYING MANTIS.
I like Daddy long leg Spiders, they catch the roaming poisonous White Tail Spiders. Animals and insects hold powerful advantages, where humans can, and have copied,- like the beak of a bird, speed and bite of a Snake, internal power of a Tigre, trapping skills like a Mantis, clawing like an Egal etc.
IS THERE ANY OTHER IP MANS HONG KONG FAMILY STUDENT CERTIFIED, WING CHUN TEACHER, IN NEW ZEALAND ?
No. Others are association members of an association without a certified rank , sifu, and simply not from Ip Mans School Lineage, that was bestowed to his Sons.
Ip Mans School Teacher Certificates are not Titled VTAA.- This is a membership, where everyone -associates, as a group. A membership is not a qualification or rank.
Here, in our school, we can show certified certificates and rank by Ip Mans Sons style teachings. Many do not have any certifications of rank, or they are self taught out of a book and charge, as a qualified Sifus when reality is not. A membership certificate does not show rank or qualifications, its just a paid association that is certified.
Some think a seminar means you can claim a teacher, even when nothing is passed. If someone was posing as a kung fu brother, And Ip Mans Sons say, he is not, simply, reality is, what is- is. NZ Sifu Tony is the only accepted Hong Kong Ip Man family qualified and certified student, in Oceania. Many around the world respect who the Hong Kong Ip Man family, have endorsed and certified.
DOES WING CHUN TEACH KNIFE DEFENSE
Yes, and many other weapons. In knives, its -unarmed against knife armed, knife against knife, two knives agains knife, and two knives against two knives. Sometimes knives in boot and throwing knives.
ARE YOU INTERESTED IN COMPETITIONS
Been there, done that, and I am happy doing what I do, making people as good as the level they want to attain, while empowering good, and their world positively. We teach Men and Women who want skills to protect their family, and teenagers who want a hobbie with bonus life skills and general people, who want something that can give them a chance when desperate people do desperate things, such as stealing your car, on your return. One asked to learn Wing Chun, after they had been beaten and their partner sexually assulted in front of him, but best is learning life skill options before an event, is better than after. Our travelling students, say they could not trust many including Police, in some of the countries they were in, but they are very thankful for Wing Chun,-the only empowering thing, with them ,in times of need. If you find a job like Wing Chun, where you enjoy helping others, you can find it maybe more rewarding than trophies that last only a year.
HOW GOOD ARE YOU AT WING CHUN.
Wing Chun is not about me, it is about what Wing Chun skills, we can give to you and the only Certification of Ip Mans family, Hong Kong lineage qualifications in New Zealand.
WHY WING CHUN
Some like external things -shoes, jewlery, maybe a big car. Some, prefer- internal, maybe at bettering ones self, maybe, with a set of specially acquried skills. And if interested, in empowerment, and skills to bodyguard, protect others, when ever, where ever, then maybe, a good Wing Chun can help. Wing Chun is something personal for you, and is with you forever, when other things are not. Fun training with Wing Chun, Chisau, Wooden Man and Close quater fighting, technical skills, Wing Chun will empower you, mentally, and physically, with options, and defending skills.
HOW DID YOU LEARN
When I was young, people were racist (my view) against many, including chinese, etc but it made many more things possible and gave more options for me, because- im not racist. I did many Arts, but i know Hong Kong, Wing Chun teachings are the most effective and the most advanced I have come across.
HOW MANY AUTHORISED QUALIFIED TEACHERS, ARE FROM THIS SCHOOL ?
Sifu Tony, Sifu Wattie, Sifu George, Sifu Micah, Jo Gau Rob, Jo Gau Richard, Jo Gau Jason and me Paul.
WHO IS TONY IN THE WORLD.
less than 20, in the world, is certified, by Sifu Ip Mans Sons. Sifu Tony, is one of them- a qualified, certified teacher by both and others. Thanks to Sifu Tony, we can show Wing Chun skill, and show you how to do the same. A free lesson is always available at any of our school branches. Sifu Tony qualified in many styles, including Karate, Muay Thai, Jujitsu, and more, but chooses to teach Wing Chun and the ways how Wing Chun unlocks, all other styles, being thanks to Ip Mans Sons lineage techniques. Sifu Tony gives great Thanks Ip Mans Sons, for all the skills he has.
WHO IS SIFU RON HEIMBERGER
SifuTony, is certified by those that, Ip Man taught personally in his family. And also certified lineage/qualifications by the Wing Chun Council President, Sifu Ron, who brought everyone from around the world, on behalf of Ip Mans Sons to fight in hong kong, in representation of their countries or larger zones. Although Cheng and students, belittled, defamated and slandered Sifu Ron for years, Sifu Ron, was an indoor student and the honourable Head, World Sifu Director, for one of Ip Mans Sons and also, President for the World Wing Chun Council. Sifu Ron also, titled, Sifu Tony as, Head Representitive of Oceania. Sifu Ron was a very passionate character, Artist, Author, Fighter, Director of Ip Mans Son Association, Father, world Wing Chun Council President, and a great teacher.
IS THERE ANY DIFFERENCE TO TONYS HONG KONG WING CHUN AND CHENG TAIWAN STYLE
BCheng system, is not the same drills, chisau, forms, sparring , respect , as Ip Mans Sons SYSTEM-and forms, drills,ideas, morals, etc.. are different. ie Wing Chun Forms, are done in certain specific ways, for certain power laws, so if the Forms are different, then some power laws are incorrect, as the motion, now has a different usage, or loss of usage. B Cheng teaches according to Taiwan customs, not Hong Kong Family style. Tony passes great skill to his students, and Sifu Tim/ Sifu Mark have proven this, in chengs sparring school, and were awarded top titles instantly.
Hong Kong people speak in Cantonese, and Taiwan people are manderin speaking. We do not use, karate clothes, or add another 10 levels of different martial art,( Chin na), to wing chuns top levels. Cheng Taiwan Weapon useage, is also very different to Hong Kong style. E.g.We do not jump and 360 turn then cut attack. Turn 180 then cut, it is over for Mr 360. A good teacher does not make, misinformation or permit, trolls and bullies.
IS B CHENG NOT FROM HONG KONG
BCheng is a native of Taiwan, he went to school in Taiwan and learnt Martial Arts in Taiwan. BCheng did not not learn, or have any ranks or qualifications, from Hong Kong. B Cheng, is no one, written in the Hong Kong Son System/Certifications/ or Lineage, B Cheng knows no one, in Hong Kong, but his name is known for multiple disrespects to Ip Mans Sons and Lineages.
IS SIFU LMK, NOT A NATIVE OF HONG KONG, DOES HE NOT AWARD JAPANESE BELTS
No, Sifu LMK, is not a native, of Hong Kong. Sifu Lo Man Kam is a native of Taiwan and went to Taiwan School, Taiwan Army, and Taiwan House. LMK is a great style. Grandmaster Ip Man did not have the chance to complete LMK,-Leung .(bc again). Sifu Lo, does not live in hong kong today. Awarded the same sash, as Sifu LoManKam, - but, it is not, the same japanese sash, as BCheng , or his karate belts, and Japanese uniforms . Sifu LMKs sash, is a chinese style, -like Wing Chun. LMK and his Son, Gordon asked Sifu Tony to keep supporting LMK and Sifu Tony always wishes them well.
WHY DO THEY CALL SIFU TONY THE MEASURING, YARD STICK
Maybe because he has done all the actual yards, when many other WC Sifus here, have not certified in the first WC level.
WHERE DID SIFU TONY CERTIFY
Sifu Tony was accepted and -Certifed from Ip Mans home, and Hong Kong school, proven, by the family of Ip Man, against decades of multiple fighters from - Itally, Germany, America, Great Britain, Austria, Turkey, Australia etc.... Sifu Tony,- is also a Senior Student, at the Hong Kong school, where Bruce Lee trained and learnt Wing Chun. Sifu Tony co-trained many winners and the latest are NZs Golden Gloves National Champions.
WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF BEING DIRECT HONG KONG CERTIFIED
Only Certificates, certifing what rank attained, is recognised, by the Official Hong Kong Lineages of authentic Wing Chun Schools. A standard Rank level Certification declearation, not just association membership certificates. We also have free lesson videos and you can learn Wing Chun free, but, the video, will not speak back, and tell you, if you are doing anything wrong. A certified Sifu sees begining to end and knows how to join all together at a speed you can enjoy. After learning, being certified by a qualified Sifu, shows your learning is endorsed, in a lineage where you can be respected as an authentic teacher etc.
WHAT MAKES WING CHUN SCHOOLS DIFFERENT.
Those who are certified in Hong Kong Wing Chun- sign to the morals, as set forth by Ip Man. Many live, like a Sifu, to find they are not qualified or physically taught. Some nz Sifus,never had an actual Teacher /Sifu, but ,although self taught, charge and certify others, is misleading. Some use underhanded mistruths, to detor others, from the opportunity to learn and qualify, authentic Lineages, like Sifu Tony, Sifu Troy Angrove or Sifu Peter Yiu.
After a Teacher is Certified, he maybe, the ideal chinese looking teacher or he may not be the ideal Chinese looking teacher. What matters, is that the Certified Teacher helps the Students attain achievements and their best results, while being positive in society, not a troll or bully at parties.
WHO IS NEW ZEALANDS MOST FAMOUS FIGHTER, IN HONG KONG.
Tony. Multiple Sifu endorsed, you can see Sifu Tony at Ip Mans home with Ip Mans Son and Ip Man Swords including holding one of his Teacher Certificates in hand with Ip Mans Son who co created the Ip Man movies, latest with Mike Tyson.
Ip Man completed his Sons, with special information and teachings, why - because they are, Ip Mans Sons, and they lived with him in Hong Kong. Students were either Outdoor students, indoor students or family style.
Sifu Tony has sparred in Hong Kong for decades against Sifus and fighters from around the World. Although Sifu Tony has fought on behalf of New Zealand, Sifu Tonys bestowed Chinese name, from Ip Mans Sons, is linked as a fighter for the East.
WHAT CAN WING CHUN DO
They say, Wing Chun killer levels, win all fights, but then, your, crippling, killing, is not aiming, to be a gentleman, or glentlelady anymore. And they wont let you in UFC or MMA. Wing Chun can save your life , family and friends, proven on battle fields . Body guard, Evac those in need, control multiple opponents, give you weapon defense, and help teach you with fun tuition. A correct martial arts teacher, makes gentlemen not bullies.
IS ALL THE PEOPLE YOU MEET, GOOD
We teach only polite, fun learning people at a pace all can enjoy. We have no interest in teaching disrespectful people.
WHAT AGE IS THE OLDEST STUDENT YOU HAVE
We teach 11 years to any age. Our oldest student is 86. We do not teach young children. We suggest they have a childhood- protected by Headmasters and parents. Kids only have 20mins attension span. Wing Chun is made to bring the community together. Wing Chun is a certified system to protect the lives of you, family and friends.
Terry - I was walking in Penrose when I was grabbed from behind. I remebered what Sifu said and I temporily paralised him, did a Wing Chun kick and he fell down. I ran
away but Sifu said, after, I should have phoned the Police, to help stop it happening to another Lady.
Jen- I professionally fought in NZ plus USA and had two famous boxer teachers, but Wing Chun is 90% of what I use to win now. My skills are amazing.
Richard- My business was held up, armed Robbery. I knew if they went upstairs to the secretary ladies and staff, it could be mortal. I could sense the danger and time
was the essence.In my experience, some will kill you even if you give up, like the many at Panmure ASB, and RSA plus Pakuranga Piza- they all put their hands up and died.
I could not let the armed Robbers go upstairs.I took out four of them on adrenalin and pure Wing Chun skills. The Police were impressed. I was impressed.Robbers were caught
and stopped from their rampages on bussinesses. Wing Chun gave me the winning edge and a feeling of a safer community.
Jason- I was in an alley, I did not know how I ended up there except my bosses wife was drunk and out numbered. I ran and deflect, neutralised the assults, and guarded her which
made the opposing girls and guys stand back. It was over nothing, but looks, clothes and bad remarks. I knew I could take them all out, I was not drunk.
But I remembered Sifu said about the decent, and how to aspire to it. I asked them to all leave peacefully, and guarded my bosses wife back into the night club. She wanted me to assult them,
but she was safe, I was happy, so was my Boss.
