Robert Downey Jr. incorporates Wing Chun into his everyday life

“This is all about focus. Wing Chun teaches you what to concentrate on, whether you’re here or out in the world dealing with problems. It’s second nature for me now. I don’t even get to the point where there’s a problem.”

Wing Chun (Wing Tsun / Ving Tsun) is a highly effective combat-tested system of self defense, fighting skills and defensive tactics. Wing Chun emphasizes aggressive tactics, direct/scientific movement and realistic training. It prepares its trainees in the subjects of self-defense, self-protection, fighting and combat skills, as well as skills to defend others. A practical and scientific system, Wing Chun teaches how to prevent, deal and overcome all kinds of violence and attacks.

“Wing Chun became my religion in 2003 when I quitted drugs” says the actor, “And I`m training hard and my dream is to get the black belt. You see, wing chun teaches to get focused on the main things and to throw unimportant ones aside. It teaches self-discipline, allows to restore physical and emotional balance. First it happens in the sports hall and than, later on, in life. And I seem to be quite good at it! Of course, it`s rather difficult to apply a new hold at once correctly and perfectly. It`s a simple life principle: a shy fish never gets high or the less he is shy the more he attains. And if you got interested in what I`ve just told you about wing chun and you want to start going in for wing chun, just take my advice: take lots of pain killers and ice with you to the sports hall. I promise, you gonna need it! Especially at first!”.
