Wing Tsun is an ancient Chinese Kung Fu System. It was created about 300 years ago by a chinese nun. She wanted to create a secret martial art that was superior to other, better known martial arts. It also needed to provide the ability to protect against other martial artists, no matter which style they practiced.
