Somerset Wing Chun Kung Fu 

Ip Man Tong Foshan


Somerset Wing Chun Kung Fu are a group of Martial Arts clubs based in Weston-super-Mare, with branches in Taunton, Shepton Mallet and students training groups in Axbridge, Bristol, Nailsea, and across the Somerset area of the UK.

  • We do not operate a fitness class with a martial arts theme.
    • 100% of your training time is spent on the martial art.
    • You will get fitness and conditioning as a by-product of the Wing Chun training.
  • No Contracts or Hidden Expenses - Simple, Affordable Monthly Training Fees.
  • No Annual Membership Fee. 

The emphasis of our training is on providing you with a sensible, useable, self-protection system based on a traditional martial art which has stood the test of time for over 400 years, rather than for sporting/competitive/lifestyle martial arts.

Enjoy an ego-free, friendly, supportive environment which tailors the training to you.

Allowing you to develop relaxed power and automatic responses that are not based on muscular strength or athletic prowess.

You produce a personalized martial art which uses soft energy without being weak and hard energy without being rigid.

This is the style where age, physique or gender is genuinely not a barrier to training or a limiting factor in your ability to employ the art.

Note: wing chun, wing tsun, ving tsun, wingtsun and other variations generally refer to the same core Kung Fu style, the spelling differences and pronunciations are an attempt to reproduce a Chinese sound in written/spoken English or differentiate a lineage's emphasis in their training. At their core there are generally the 3 hand forms, wooden dummy, knives and pole.

We are the longest running Wing Chun training group in Somerset and earned an enviable reputation.

Sifu Bill started with Grand Master (GM) Samuel Kwok in 1987 and trained with his Sifu’s instructors, GM Ip Chun and GM Ip Ching, regularly in the interim.

The following 18 years Sifu Bill expanded his knowledge and skills following GM Kwok in the GM Ip Ching lineage methodology.

Over the last 30+ years Sifu Bill has taught many instructors and students from most of the main Wing Chun lineages and respects the other Wing Chun lineages, in the UK.
