What is Buddha Hand Wing Chun?
This Southern Chinese martial art was brought to the United States by Grandmaster Henry Leung. To honor his late teacher, Shaolin Abbot Hsu Yun (also known as "Gao Ghi Fut Sao"), Grandmaster Leung incorporated his Sifu's name into the name of the art. It has the aggressive, springy power for which all Wing Chun is known, but has retained the soft, internal components usually associated with martial arts such as Tai Chi Chuan, Hsing I and Ba Gua.
Don't be confused by terms such as "Traditional" and "Modified" when inquiring about Wing Chun. These are terms that were originally used by members of one Wing Chun lineage to distinguish themselves from other members of the same lineage. Also, don't be misled by martial artists who suddenly add Wing Chun to their curriculum. Sifu Bruce Nepon has been practicing Buddha Hand (Fut Sao), an authentic Cantonese lineage of Wing Chun, since 1983.
