Having devoted their lives to the art, Mindful Wing Chun's passionate teachers possess an impressive collective experience of over half a century. Furthermore, what sets Mindful Wing Chun apart is their exceptional “internal” style of Wing Chun, which was pioneered by the legendary Grandmaster Chu Shong Tin. He was widely regarded as one of the most adept practitioners and mentors of this revered martial art.

Mindful Wing Chun Kids Kung Fu classes cater to kids from 3 years old to teenagers and offer a unique approach to martial arts that goes far beyond physical training. At Mindful Wing Chun, each class is designed to promote discipline, correct posture, coordination, balance, and self-defence, while also prioritizing fun, confidence, and emotional well-being. Before every class, children recite the Mindful Wing Chun mantra, which emphasizes respectful behaviour, compassionate communication, persistence, focus, self-awareness, and integrity. These values are integrated into every aspect of teaching, creating a holistic approach to martial arts and helping kids develop not just their physical skills but also their emotional intelligence.
