Welcome to the Midlands Wing Chun Kuen

Established in 1982, in Birmingham (UK) the Midlands Wing Chun Kuen is a small friendly Association offering traditional Hong Kong Wing Chun as taught directly to Chief Instructor, Sifu Shaun Rawcliffe in Hong Kong by Wing Chun's Grandmaster Ip Chun, eldest son and senior student of the late Grandmaster Ip Man.
The Midlands Wing Chun Kuen (MWCK), with 10 Regional Headquarters around the UK and 1 Headquarter in Northern Italy, is run by a dedicated group of very experienced senior MWCK instructors and is the ideal organisation for learning one of the most practical and dynamic street self defence martial arts.
