Wing Chun is a traditional Southern Chinese Kung fu/wushu style martial arts and can be used as a form of self-defense. This practice requires quick arm movements and strong legs when fighting and/or defending.It is fundamental to Wing Chun to have softness when performing techniques.
Wing Chun favors a relatively high, narrow stance with the elbows close to the body. Arms are positioned across the vitals of the centerline with hands in a "protecting hand" position. Some Wing Chun styles discourage the use of high kicks because this risks counter-attacks to the groin.
