Wing Chun is known by its distinctive punch, wing block, and stance. These three are enough to demonstrate Wing Chun’s function as a system in the mathematical sense.
The vertical fist provides the Sunken Elbow needed for JeetKune (slicing fist). The BongSao (wing block) snaps up momentarily to cover the attractive opening above the sunken elbow. The small stance provides mobility as well as leg trapping and kicking. Like a finely-tuned basketball or soccer team, these three “pass the ball” from strength to strength.

“Wing Chun is a System...If you understand Wing Chun, any art can apply, the Principles of it.”

--Wang Kiu

Wing Chun training improves stability, balance and coordination. Things happen fast and close in Wing Chun - strikes and jerks are explosive and surprising. Two or more things are almost always happening at once. Learning to use both hands and both elbows as a finely-tuned team shows you things you never imagined your body could do.
Wing Chun learning improves thinking skills including decision making, organization and planning, and situation awareness. It is important that we emphasize Wang Kiu’s principle-based approach, as demonstrated in Herbert Maier’s Ph.D. research.
Wing Chun character develops the critical attribute of Initiative, as well as calmness and forethought.

Our Heritage:

Yip Man amazed Hong Kong with the art he brought from FatSan in the late 1940’s His students have swept the world with the art he started teaching in the back room of a temple.

Wang Kiu is one of the original Core Students from the early 1950s. He and Wong Shun Leung organized and fought in the famous challenge matches the generated the explosive growth of the school.

–Wang Kiu also wrote the news articles that built the original school.

–He was the first student taught the “Wooden Man” by means of the partner version.

–He moved to Europe in the 1970s, where his students have many students.

In his own words: “I am a simple Chinese man doing Wing Chun. I am not a professional.”


World-wide, Wang Kiu is respected for his character and his expert knowledge of Wing Chun.

Wing Chun’s ChiSao exercise, popular as a sensitivity drill, teaches  interacting with the complexity of a live partner, while maintaining technical accuracy.
Wing Chun’s forms teach critical basics of motion. Each movement performs numerous different applications.
Wing Chun’s Wooden Man trains advanced technique and allows us to “go at it” harder than we might want to with a partner.


To retain Wang Kiu's spirit in the training we prize, we named our Association according to his inspiring words.



The characters for “Wing Chun” read across to show the scope of our work, while the characters “Wang Kiu” read down to show our CenterLine in the Principles he teaches.

  "I do not see myself as a Teacher, or a Master, or a GrandMaster, but as a Farmer, planting one seed of the White Plum, the Wing Chun Flower, among all your beautiful Yellow Roses of Texas."



Yellow Rose Wing Chun Association (1987-2007)

Herbert Maier is Wang Kiu's only American student. When SiGung Wang first came to America to visit Sifu Maier in 1987, he spoke to Sifu Maier's students:


Wang Kiu Wing Chun (2007-present)

In 2007, we moved our base from Texas to North Carolina. With this move, we changed our name and enriched our well-known emblem.



Making Good Decisions, Fast!

It’s not just “having the moves”, it’s anticipating and responding appropriately that wins the day in self-defense, and in much more common situations like business or driving.

Where Am I? What’s Going On? What Do I Do?

These are fundamental questions that can not be answered by “cookbook” remedies. Principle-based learning is flexible, adaptive.

Yes, this is an effective martial art.

You will learn useful, practical self-defense, but we are not a “fighting” or a “competition” school. So we will not appeal to some preferences.

Wing Chun teaches exceptional coordination, engineering, and understanding of how your body works. What we like to emphasize is the logic and tactic behind this powerhouse. That is briefly what Sifu Maier earned his Ph.D. with.


We train in a non-threatening manner that has been satisfying for school teacher groups, retirees, and other “non-macho” folks.

Like Chess or Tic-Tac-Toe...

Like in business or well-known classic tactical games, decisions in “Chinese Boxing” rely on organization, trained concepts and broadened awareness.
