The history of
Wing Tsun
Wing Tsun is an approximately 300 year old Chinese martial art and its historical origin is strongly linked to the traditional Kung-Fu, especially to the martial arts from the now defunct southern Shaolin Monastery.

During its destruction by a devastating fire, the leading masters of the shaolin fighting styles, known as the “Five Elders”, were able to escape and evade the subsequent prosecution.

Ng Mui was part of that small but special group and is, at least according to legend, the founder of our, at that moment still nameless, martial art.
She especially developed Wing Tsun for a single purpose, to be superior to other "hard" fighting styles.

Ng Mui decided to teach her newly developed martial art to the young woman Yim Wing Chun, so that she is able to defend herself against a thug in her village.

After Yim Wing Chun was fully instructed by her mistress, she was able to defeat the thug in a single combat.


The name "Wing Tsun"therefore comes from the first student of the original developer of our martial art.

Wing Tsun was passed down through several generations to Yip Man (Ip Man), who was the last exclusive master of Wing Tsun.
Yip Man is responsible for the general distribution of Wing Tsun. He was the first master teaching his knowledge and skills publicly on a large scale.

Yip Man had many students, including the far and away most famous Bruce Lee. One of the students of his closer circle was GGM (Great Grand Master) Leung Ting, who is also a grandmaster now.

He in turn had his own closer circle of students, wherein GM (Grand Master) Keith R. Kernspecht was probably one of the most prominents.

In 1976, Keith R. Kernspecht founded the European Wing Tsun Organization (EWTO), in confederation with the International Wing Tsun Association (IWTA) headed by GGM Leung Ting, he spread Wing Tsun like wildfire in Europe.
