Class News

New Class Location!

Fall has arrived, and winter is around the corner! Class will be held indoors on saturdays starting in November at the Central Presbytarian Church, who have kindly let us use their space for our training. Please see the class info below for more details!

Why Train With Us

We are a small and welcoming school focused on training Traditional Ip Man Wing Chun. Classes are relaxed and friendly, with individualized attention given to each student so that they can progress at their own pace.

Health and Wellness Benefits

Wing Chun is a principles based art that focuses on relaxation and development of good body mechanics. It is an excellent art for stress relief, improving muscle coordination, and developing healthy movement patterns.

Skill Development

Wing Chun is based on principles of efficiency, directness and simplicity. It is a great art to learn for all ages and body types. On the surface it seems straightforward, but it is a deep art that can be enjoyed and developed for years upon years.

Caring Instruction

Sifu May Chan provides direct, personalized instruction to each student based on their current level of skill and comfort. With her many years of experience in Wing Chun and other martial arts, she is able to cater her lessons to meet each student's individual goals and needs.

Outdoor Training in the Downtown Core

Our Classes are taught out in the open air right in the heart of downtown Vancouver. Enjoy the sunshine and the fresh air as we make the most out of summer!

Sifu May Chan

May has been training Wing Chun since 2010. She has trained under two separate Ip Man Lineages and maintains good relations with both of her schools. She believes in developing skills through slow, deliberate exercises that build strong foundations for future techniques and applications. Her instruction encompasses both hard skills such as body coordination and partner drills (cooperative and non-cooperative), as well as soft skills such as relaxation and mindfulness. She believes that learning Wing Chun is an excellent vector for personal development.

Her martial arts journey has lead her to train at the Shaolin Temple in Deng Feng China and to compete in kickboxing events here in Vancouver. She strongly believes in the value of cross-training and incorporates modern training practices and pedagogy into both her own development and those of her students.
