I have been training in the art of Wing Chun for more than seven years now under various instructors. All of the instructors I have had have shown a great deal of skill both as martial artists and teachers. My journey through the martial arts has led me to become a private student of founder and chief instructor of the WCK UK organisation, Dai Sifu Wes Hussey
Sifu Wes Hussey gives to his students not only a great knowledge of the system that they are learning but also a true understanding of it’s underlying principles, a vital ingredient in the training of Wing Chun.
I’ve been teaching Wing Chun since just before becoming a student of WCK UK and along my journey have met students from other disciplines of Wing Chun. Each time a new student from another Wing Chun system comes through our doors they are boggled by the amount of information I have to give them regarding their art. They are often confused as to why this information has not been given to them before and it would seem that none are given a reason for any technique they are doing.
Training with WCK UK is not like this at all. In my training I have been given a solid reason for every single movement that I make and am shown how to make these movements more efficient and more effective, as is the true Wing Chun way. I have on many occasions tried to catch my instructor out to no avail. A student is not expected to revere his teacher or unquestionably follow orders but is encouraged to think for himself and develop the self defence system that is best for him personally. WCK UK has no ‘secret’ techniques no special way of training and no holding back of students.
All training is offered to help the student progress further and gain a better understanding of themselves and their art. Many people ask me if I will go to China someday to learn Kung Fu from the masters there. My reply is always the same, ‘It would take me a hundred years to search China for an instructor as good as the one I have today’. I believe that Sifu Wes is one of the very few martial arts instructors who will relish the day one of his students can beat him. This is the day that the martial arts instructors job is done. From my study of western swordsmanship I have found the word ‘true’ often used to describe certain techniques, tactics or situations and I offer this word to describe Sifu Wes and the WCK UK.
Training here is true, the techniques you will learn are true, the core principles are true. This is True Wing Chun. It is with this ethos that I and all my colleagues in the WCK UK organisation are taught and it is this that we all pass on to our students.
