OFFICIAL STATEMENT : Wing Chun is NOT intended for competition. We do not train for competition or points sparring , nor is competition participation required (or even encouraged). However, in the rare instances when some of our students have expressed a desire to participate in an "official" competitive environment, Sifu Bradley has supported their decision and worked with them to help them prepare. So while competing is an exception to the rule, we are not afraid to compete and on the rare occaisions where we have, we have done exceptionally well (according to the judges). So with that in mind, here are the results of the last competition a few of our students chose to particiipate in...
Bringing Home The Gold
Sifu Bradley and three of his students competed in the July 2007 Taiji Legacy International Martial Arts Tournament Competition held in Dallas Texas. They won the beginners, intermediate and advanced level for Wing Chun (forms, chi sau, wooden dummy and Free Fighting - not points sparring) and Martial Arts Spirit, bringing home 16 medals, most of them GOLD.
Our School Won More GOLD Medals than ANY other Wing Chun School at the Event!
Pictured above from left to right are: Marcus, Gary, Sifu Bradley and Darwin (Sifu Bradley's personal disciples). Sifu Bradley actually competed along side his students at the tournament in the advanced level, and as you can see by the medals he is wearing, did extremely well.
It's also noteworthy to mention that Sifu Bradley was the only wing chun instructor in attendance that actually competed in the event along side students. Based on his demonstrated knowledge and skills, he has been invited to be a judge at the next international competition.

Wing Chun Middle Weight Division Results
In the middle weight, wing chun chi sau competition, the last two competitors left standing were both our own (Pictured below) and had to be paired off to fight each other. However these two guys have crossed arms with each other many times in class so it was pretty natural for them.

Wing Chun Heavy Weight Division Results
In the heavy weight division the student who won ALL GOLD MEDALS for everything he competed in was also our own. The interesting thing to note is Gary (pictured below) at the time of this competition was only a one year student of Sifu Bradley.
It's one thing to claim a martial art is effective and a Kung Fu School is one of the best, it's another thing to actually be willing and able to prove it in the heat of real International Competition.
Congratulations on a job well done guys. Thanks for bringing home the GOLD and thank you Sifu Bradley for teaching us how to make it happen!
