    Robert Downey Junior and how wing chun help with his addiction!


    During RDJ's fight with addiction, wing chun helped Robery concentration and discipline his mind and body reach sobriety...

    During RDJ's battle with addiction, wing chun (or wing tsun as we call it) helped Robery focus and discipline his mind and reach sobriety. After only one year of wing chun instruction Robert said this. "Martial has just been... I can’t even say how much it’s impacted my ability to stay well and focused,” RDJ went on to say. “It’s a spiritual practice. It’s grounded me and its primary purpose is to promote a sense of spiritual warriordom and to respect your society and to be prepared to defend yourself and your society if necessary.”

    Just 3 years into his kung fu training with his Sifu (teacher) Oram when he was just about to start his grading at his school. Downey opened up about his devotion to the martial art on Late Show With David Letterman. “I am deeply committed to Wing Chun,” he said to David, before avidly explaining and showing off Biu Tze form - the form of thrusting fingers.

    Wing chun just not only helps centre a person when struggling with mental health issues and/or diseases. It also helps protect the individual from physical danger, discipline the individual and teach the important and effective self defence for any situation.

    Fight Fit additions

    This week's new addition to the fight fit programme revolves around reactions. Duck and move! Allowing the pad holder to test the student's ability to react to: sweeping gestures to the face( can the student duck and weave when an unexpected attack comes), attacking in the right window of time (can the student move and counter when necessary) and following the centre line (can the student follow the centre link under pressure). These are all key skills needed in combat - hence an essential addition to our students training. More is to come next week - so stay tuned for more fight fit.

    Train hard, fight easy

    A look back...

    A look back to when i first started kung fu! (That's me in the orange shirt!) a couple of months into my training and i was already loving it! A lot has changed since then, but the one thing that hasn't changed is my love for the art.

    Train hard, fight easy and i'll see you all in class!

    A new week of training

    The great martial artist bruce lee once said "A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at." Make your wing tsun goal to come to class every week and you'll reach heights you never thought possible! Have a great week and i'll see you in class for kick ass kung fu!
