A strong foundation is essential for good kung fu, which is why a great deal of emphasis is placed on developing basic skills. This foundation in place, the students can then evolve to the chi sao and sparring practice that hones devastating self-defense applications.

Beginning students concentrate on footwork, reflex training, and dan chi sau - which build the fundamental skills for chi sao.

Advanced students concentrate almost exclusively on chi sao - an intense, intricate drill at the heart of Wing Chun study that develops reflexes, timing and response. Properly taught, chi sao is exhilarating, energizing, and remains a remarkable safe, effective way to learn the art. Chi sao study, which quickly becomes a lifetime pursuit for dedicated students, presents a practical way to program the body and mind to respond with unsurpassed skill in fighting situations.
