wing tzun is a chinese art of self-defense. it enables men and women of every age to defend themselves against a stronger opponent.
the student learns quickly how to protect him/herself efficiently in a realistic situation. our students build upon their natural reflexes that are trained with the ebmas training system. through this specialized training, one stays calm in a fight situation. one can rely on his / her reflexes that are much faster than a reaction started through visual contact.
wt teaches one to utilize the opponent's force with soft movements.
ebmas students become more self assured through a new self-confidence with the result that they rarely get in dangerous situations. and if they do find themselves in a potentially dangerous situation, they have efficient, weaponless techniques and are able to effectively use them with explosive movements.
one who learns wt develops a complete new sensitivity for one's body and relaxes its muscles. through this new understanding of the body, joints and bones might go back to their natural position.
everybody can learn ebmas-wt and perform it independently from age. it offers safety, mental and physical balance and joy. a student of wt can continuously learn something new and develop it.
