Wing Chun terms

Wing Chun terms

These are terms used in the Chinese martial art Wing Chun. Note that Wing Chun terms are originally colloquial Cantonese (or even slang spoken in Foshan). The meaning might therefore be difficult to trace.

Some of those terms are used in Jeet Kune Do, sometimes with a different meaning.
