QUEENS KUNG FU
My name is Paul Matthews. I teach Wing Tsun (Wing Chun) Kung Fu in Forest Hills, Queens using private and semi-private lessons. I also teach self defense lessons at a weekly drop-in class.
-About Wing Tsun
Wing Tsun is a 300 year old Chinese Martial Art that was actually invented by a woman. It is designed to allow a smaller person to defeat a bigger and/or stronger opponent. In Hong Kong Wing Tsun is called “Gangster Fist” because local gangsters favor it as the most practical style of Kung Fu and the easiest to learn. But the “good guys” i.e. elite law enforcement units, SWAT and Hostage Recovery Teams around the world, including the FBI, SEK (Germany), RAID (France), etc., have learned it. Why? Because it works, its deadly, and because the basics can be learned very quickly. But Wing Tsun is also tremendously fun to learn and practice. A class is like a “mini-vacation” from the stress of modern life.

-Benefits of Wing Tsun
Wing Tsun can help you lose weight.
Let’s face it, exercise can be boring which is why most people quit. But learning and practicing Wing Tsun is so much fun that, before you know it, you will notice that your body has changed. You will find that you have lost weight, your muscle tone is improved, and your energy level has also gone up. If you keep at it, you will get the tight beach body that everyone wants and admires.
Wing Tsun can improve your mind
“Remain Calm in the Midst of Motion”
(Wing Tsun proverb)
“I Don’t sweat the small stuff anymore. Training is so much fun”
Wing Tsun is based upon the Taoist principles of simplicity, spontaneity, and harmony with nature. After you have been practicing for a few months you will notice that your reflexes and concentration have greatly improved. You may also notice a new sense of calm pervading your life.
Wing Tsun can help you defend yourself in a real world situation
The Wing Tsun expert uses devastatingly effective techniques to attack the opponent’s most vulnerable points with the goal of finishing the fight as quickly as possible. There is a saying in Wing Tsun that a fight should last no longer than 3 seconds, otherwise it is considered lost. Using the principle of economy of motion, the Wing Tsun expert or advanced student can deliver 7 or more hand strikes in a second, and his tactile sensitivity can become so great that he can actually beat his opponent while blindfolded.
Private lessons greatly accelerate the learning process. It takes on average three times as long to correct a mistake or incorrect movement than it takes to learn the movement or technique correctly in the first place. Private instruction allows the correct movements to be drilled into your muscle memmory, instead performing many repetitions of an incorrect movement. Also, Wing Tsun is primarily a conceptual style. Private Instruction promotes learning the all-important concepts of the style.
-Semi-Private instruction is an even more affordable option. You and your buddy can share the cost of a private lesson. The advantage of this type of training is that you will be able to practice later outside of class with your buddy.
