We are passionate about Wing Chun kung fu and throughout the years our passion has spread to our students, some of whom have become teachers themselves. The Central Wing Chun family was founded in 2009 by Neil Parris who has been studying Wing Chun since 1993.
At Central Wing Chun we combine traditional and modern training methods so we can get the very best out of each and every student. Often described as a scientific approach to fighting, you will be taught the details of each action while being pushed physically and mentally to overcome your individual obstacles.
Is it going to be tough? You'd better believe it, but make no mistake, we are not drill sergeants! You'll be taught and trained in a hard-working, yet relaxed atmosphere so you can develop practical skills. Skills that when applied, can be used both in combat and everyday life.
The students in our London Wing Chun classes are everyday people like you, from different walks of life, but with similar goals. Primarily our students want to learn how to defend themselves on the street, but many want to be more active and simply don't connect with standard gym training. Our Wing Chun classes can provide an outlet for the gymophobes and gym pros alike, but if you want all study and no sweat, or all sweat and no study, we suggest you look somewhere else.
Due to popular demand in the past, we restrict class sizes at our London Wing Chun classes. This way all students can get the attention they deserve and not get lost in the crowd. We therefore request that you get in touch before coming along to one of our London classes to avoid disappointment. Alternatively, you can arrange a private Wing Chun lesson in London with an instructor at a time to suit you.
"At Central Wing Chun we find that one of the greatest things Martial art training gives the student is a channel to disconnect from the daily demands of their life and to focus on something positive while shaping themselves into more capable human beings"
Sifu Neil Parris
Head instructor at Central Wing Chun
Sifu Neil Parris started learning Wing Chun in 1993. Since then he has actively sought out out ways to improve his skill, stating that "there is no finish line for the things that matter". He has been trained both in the UK and in Hong Kong and has been teaching Wing Chun for over a decade.
Having also trained in other Martial art disciplines, Neil Parris has been able to view his Wing Chun from different perspectives while staying true to the principles which were taught to him. His teaching style is a combination of no-nonsense, and meticulous attention to detail, helping students discover what works for them as individuals rather than painting everyone with the same brush.
An integral part of our Wing Chun family, our assistant instructors are often on hand to share their experience and offer private tuition.
