Philadelphia Wing Chun Kung Fu
Located in Chinatown, Philadelphia Wing Chun Kung Fu schools students in wing chun—a 300-year-old martial-arts system. Students learn five ways to defeat an enemy: striking, kicking, joint locking, throwing, and through the use of weapons. Unlike other martial-arts forms, wing chun emphasizes blocking and attacking all in the same movement. It's a unique style of self-defense, and one that has been mastered and shared by the staff at Philadelphia Wing Chun Kung Fu since 2007.
