This Martial Art form is currently taught by WOMA at 3 Forssman Close, Barbeque Downs, Kyalami, Gauteng, in association with EBMAS (Emin Botzepe Martial Arts System).

Wing Tzun is conceived in such a way that one can manage a fight effectively with just a few movements, teaching you to use the force of your opponent and turn it against him.

Wing Tzun is not based on physical strength, allowing physically weaker people to defend themselves.

Though Emin has trained in many different martial arts disciplines, he currently basis his training solely on Wing Tzun Kung Fu and Latosa Escrima. He feels this helps him end conflict quickly by using effective and simple techniques.

These techniques are the hallmark of Wing Tzun. Emin confesses, "I only like using techniques that work as fast as possible with minimal injury to myself."

Next to the emphasis on self-defence training and reflexes, Wing Tzun is a discipline that benefits fitness and conditioning, breathing and meditation, concentration and confidence culminating in a practical life philosophy “less is more”.
