Learn Wing Chun…Chinese Martial Arts Classes in Ulsan, South Korea.
This was originally a page I put up whilst I lived in South Korea and was for those interested in learning Wing Chun with me in Ulsan. Since I have now left South Korea this advertisement is no longer relevant.
However I have left this page up in case I return to Korea in the future.
Below are links to the Wing Chun schools that operate in South Korea at this moment in time:
There are also several Facebook pages dedicated to Wing Chun in Korea:
Are you a foreigner in South Korea and looking to learn a flowing and soft martial art? Then Wing Chun is the system for you, it’s simple to learn, fast, effective and most importantly based on scientific principals so it actually makes sense.
When learning Wing Chun you won’t be left in the dark about how it is applied in a street self defense situation. Simply put learning Wing Chun will give you a pragmatic and direct way to defend yourself against one or multiple opponents.
If your small, thin or a soft person – see how Wing Chun can work for you, you don’t have to be a body builder or an aggressive person to use Wing Chun in order to defend yourself against large or multiple opponents. In fact Wing Chun was created by a woman (legend has it) and was designed in a way to eliminate the factors of size and strength in a confrontation.
The Problem for Foreigner People in South Korea
South Korea itself is fairly tourist friendly but very little social and sport classes of any kind are taught in English with the foreign population being less than 1% – which can be a drag for people living here who do not have the time to get prolific with the Korean Language. I myself had been searching for a martial arts class to join. There are plenty of none English speaking Taekwondo classes in Korea, a few Korean Speaking Hapkido classes, the odd Brazilian Jujitsu class in the major cities such as Busan and some Wing Chun classes in Seoul) Realizing everything is taught and advertised in Korean I gave up the hunt.
Let me fill you in on an obvious point from my own perspective – if you are wanting to properly learn a martial art, having a teacher who doesn’t speak your native language fluently can be too greater obstacle to overcome – especially arts so intricate as Ju Jitsu and Wing Chun.
In the end I decided to offer foreign persons living in Ulsan the chance to learn with me. I myself a student had been studying the Wing Chun for around two years (on and off) and hoped to pass on my limited knowledge and great enthusiasm of sharing the art to fellow students or to find someone who could help me! Teaching what you know is the best way to develop yourself. But unfortunately I did not find anyone in time.
If you currently live in South Korea and wish to post an advertisement on my site as either an English speaking martial art school or as a student looking to train in a particular art please contact me here and I will open a page for you.
Believe me with the clear lack of competition out there for English speaking martial arts schools in Korea your advertisement will get to the top of Google and hopefully be noticed by someone who can help you!
