This list offers a best effort for the most common used Wing Chun techniques using verifiable sources for everyone to check. If your lineage uses other names for a certain technique you are not wrong, it is your “local dialect” and interpretation. My guiding principles for compiling this list are:
- I stay true to my lineage and will respect our family’s naming of techniques.
- I honor the Cantonese /Jyutping Romanization, as Wing Chun Kung Fu originated in the central Canton area.
- I use various sources to check spelling and Romanizations:
- Cantodict (for checking Jyutping, Pinyin and translations).
- Falk’s dictionary of Chinese Martial arts
I will regularly update this page as I continue researching, discussing, and updating Wing Chun’s terminology.
It is free and open to all. You can access/share it by pointing your browser at
