The legend says, Yim Wing Chun practised for only a short amount of time before beating the man and winning her freedom from him.

We do not offer a quick-fix self defence course for women. Such courses may impart knowledge but they cannot give realistic skill and ability. What we offer is a safe and supportive, non-macho environment for you to train in alongside everyone else. You’ll simply be given the tools of Wing Chun, which if trained hard enough and to a high enough level will help you reach the point where you will be able to defend yourself should the need ever arise.
