FEMALE ONLY WING CHUN KUNG FU CLASSES

As soft as Tai Chi and as fierce as Thai Boxing, Wing Chun is a practical and effective self defence martial art that works on
the street. It uses speed and technique, not strength, and was created by a woman for a female student named Wing Chun. Wing Chun was a major influence on Bruce Lee. It disciplines mind and body, and can be maintained throughout life, insha-Allah.

Classes are available in the Acton and Ealing areas. Individual lessons are £7.50 per class, or at a reduced price of £6.00 per class if an advance weekly payment of £12 is made for both
classes. Group bookings also available, preferably for weekday classes between 10.00 am and 6.00 pm. However, there is lots of flexibility around days and times.
