How old do I have to be to join the North Devon Wing Chun Academy?
Due to the nature of some Wing Chun techniques our classes are unsuitable for anybody under the age of 16.
Is this class suitable for beginners?
Yes, all classes are mixed ability, so it’s perfect for beginners too.
Do I have to wear a special uniform?
No, you just need to wear a t-shirt, lose fitting trousers / track suit bottoms and trainers. You will have an option to buy a club t-shirt or hoody if you want. After you’ve been training for a while we recommend buying boxing boots – we can advise you on some reasonably priced styles. Boxing boots are recommended because of the ankle support they provide during training.
How fit do I have to be to learn Wing Chun?
Average fitness is fine, the advantage of Wing Chun is that it’s not a competition style sport, and so is suitable for all ages and fitness levels.
Are there any club rules?
Yes, good personal hygiene (no-one wants to train with stinky :-). Also, we do expect our students to show respect for each other when training.
