MOTION CREATES EMOTION
Stressed, work getting to you? Feel overburdened? Perhaps you turn to alcohol, smoking or over-eating - all of which are bad for your health and can lead to a self-destructive lifestyle and depression.
Learning Wing Tjun with IWKA offers a way to create positive emotion through exercise that requires concentration and interaction with your training partners and instructors in a friendly relaxed environment.
ENERGY FLOWS WHERE EMOTION GOES
Once you begin to feel positive, you will find your energy levels rise, helping you deal with stressful situations in a positive and proactive way.
Learning Wing Tjun with IWKA can be an effective way of de-stressing and can help you build confidence to not only walk down the street with your head held high, but also help you carry yourself at work so you can get noticed.
In fact, many blue-chip companies now use martial arts training to help employees deal with stress and pressured situations.
SIZE DOESN'T MATTER
The system uses body mechanics, sensitivity & relaxation rather than brute strength and offers its exponents a dynamic and effective way of fighting.
For a long time martial arts classes carried the stigma of burly men marching up and down a dingy hall shouting, huffing and puffing. At IWKA we promote very different view of teaching martial arts.
The practice of WingTjun offers more than just a way of defending against physical encounters, but offers a way to create positive emotion and release stress through exercise that requires concentration and interaction with your training partners and instructors in a friendly relaxed environment.
IWKA classes are ego-free and friendly, which helps female students to feel relaxed in class. We also promote a safe family type class environment and you do not need to worry about being hurt. Let Wing Tjun empower you and make you feel more in control of the world around you.
So why not learn an effective easy-to-learn martial art with no fancy moves or unnecessary movement and release stress in positive way.
WHY IS WING TJUN RIGHT FOR WOMEN
Kung Fu and martial arts training isn't reserved exclusively for men.
Learning a martial art as a woman increases strength, awareness and allows you to deal with the increasing threat of harassment by men. Increasingly, women find themselves in situations that can put their lives in danger and martial arts training with IWKA allows you to take these threats head on.
Learning a martial art and proper self-defence techniques takes time and dedication. Repetitive training is needed to build up strength and technique. But it is not just about physical prowess. Martial arts training give's you mental as well as physical strength to deal with anything life throw's at you.
There are many examples of actresses that use martial arts to keep fit, from Angelina Jolie to famous martial arts actresses such as Michelle Yeoh. And the London Olympics casts a shining light on fighting women - with gold medals in Taekwondo and boxing for women, as well as silver for Gemma Gibbons in Judo.
KEEP FIT WITH KICKING AND PUNCHING
The practice of martial arts is a good way of getting your heart rate up and burning fat. Punching and kicking can help develop and strengthen muscle groups and improve core body strength. And, unlike the gym, IWKA offers constant teaching assistance and encouragement as well social interaction with the rest of the class.
Modern life is stressful and juggling a work/life balance can be needlessly stressful, can increase blood pressure and damage your health. WingTjun is an excellent stress-buster allowing to release pent up frustration by hitting the pads.
We hope you'll take the time in visiting one our classes. You will not be disappointed taking the steps to a better you!
