This style emphasizes the use of speed and extreme arm, leg and body length to defeat and devastate its opponent’s. Chang Quan Long Fist Chinese Boxing uses high jumping fast techniques combined with body hardening and softness of energy. The generation of power, acrobatics and use of strong fighting stances are explosive and beautiful to watch.

Tips Anti-Bully self defense and being bullied in school

“Why do they tease me, call me names? Is something wrong with me? I don’t want to feel this bad.” These are the thoughts from bullying. Hurtful and cruel words directed to make the victim feel helpless and weak. Bullying targets all ages, sexes, and races. It is therefore necessary that children learn techniques for addressing and preventing bullying.

More incidents of bullying are occurring away from adult supervision. On the playground, outside school, or even on school busses where an adult is present but occupied. When parents or adults cannot be counted on children need to learn how to approach these dangerous situations. Learning how to talk down situations and keep cool under pressure are always the first means when approaching a bully. Simple talks can undo misunderstandings and prevent fights.

Sadly not all matters of bullying can be resolved by talking things over. When fighting becomes involved bullying turns into intense violence. Wing Chun teaches children how to defend if caught in a situation where they must protect themselves or a friend. Blocking and attacking simultaneously with controlled movements can render an attacker defenseless or immobile until help arrives.

It is the respect taught for oneself and others that has one of the most important benefits. Through bowing or waiting the next command children learn discipline and concentration. Progress is measured by striped on a belt which reinforce goal settings.Each accomplishment reinforces children with confidence and a self-awareness of who they are and what they stand for. Knowledge that they do not deserved to be bullied, life lessons that will direct them when faced with any adversity.

Bullying doesn’t end there. Parents and kids need to be aware, and more, proactive! Learning how to protect oneself from being a victim of bullying can be a determining factor of how well children score in school and develop socially and emotionally. Sharing information through social media,online publication, newspapers, magazines, local print, or just talking with someone is a great way to reach out to others.

Reminder – Wing Chun Kung Fu does not promote or encourage the use of violence against others! Wing Chun Kung Fu is a martial art founded on high morals and strong principals of protection, fitness and focus. It is through friendship, respect and self-discipline that Wing Chun advances, not through unnecessary violence.
