After many years of training in different styles, the Fighting Spirit club chooses to focus mainly on the fighting defence system Southern China’s Kung Fu style—Wing Chun.


"Fighting Spirit’s Wing Chun keeps to traditional principles of the art, and then practically converts them to a modern day environment."


This system is the chosen fighting and defence platform for many well known martial artists, including Bruce Lee.

Bruce Lee eventually formed his own defence style mostly using Wing Chun as the source.
