and lineages


The Internal Wing Chun of the Oriental School is the synthesis of four different lines, represented respectively by four Masters of this style: GM Yip Man, GM Tang Yik, GM Cheng Kwong and GM Cho Hung Choi

GM Yip Man 
Perhaps the most famous Master in the West and the East, having had the star of Bruce Lee among his students. 
His rapid, linear and effective system has become the very emblem of Wing Chun and is the backbone of our journey thanks to the learning scheme created by Sifu Leung Ting, the last student of the late GM Yip Man.
Sifu Sergio Iadarola, one of the world's leading exponents of this style, was a fundamental pillar in bringing this knowledge to our school.

GM Tang Yik
GM Tang Yick is perhaps the emblem of Weng Chun (or "Eternal Spring" lineage). First-rate teacher in Hong Kong's Dai Duk Lan (GM Wai Yan's famous spice shop) he was also known, thanks to his undisputed skill with weapons, as the "King of the long stick".
Many elements of his valuable curriculum are integrated into our program, and in particular his "Look Dim Poon Kwan" (six and a half stick) and his "Mook Yan Chong" (dummy).

GM Cheng Kwong
A very important line responsible for our Wing Chun is that of the Lo Family.
GM Cheng Kwong, direct student of GM Wai Yan, handed down a lot of knowledge before his death, both from a technical point of view (it is worth mentioning his ability in Kam Na, locks and joint breaks) and from a spiritual point of view ( was in fact a Taoist spiritual guide).
Sifu Mauro was lucky enough to see him for some time during his stay in Hong Kong and to be close to him even during his death.

The GM Cho Hung Choi
The Cho family, in the important translation of Wing Chun, has the responsibility of having handed down to us what is perhaps the most internal knowledge of this style.
In fact, this language possesses the "Kuen Kuit" (or mottos) of the primordial Internal Art and of the Siu Lin Tao form.
This form represents what later took the name of Wing Chun in history, giving life to the most modern forms: Siu Nim Tao, Chum Kiu and Biu Tze.

In a precise and defined teaching program, our internal Wing Chun can refer to these four lines, without however wanting to represent the "authenticity" of one of them to the detriment of another.
The line of thought is to be able to have four full and complete perspectives of the same discipline, Wing Chun, in order to have the widest and most complete vision and understanding of it.


The study path of Yang style Taijiquan of the Oriental School is divided into three different and complementary methods.

These are fundamental steps that make our School unique in its kind, offering the practitioner the most complete vision and maximum potential of the Yang style.
The first method is represented by the system called Huang Taiji, or the style of GM Huang Sheng Shyan (student of GM Cheng Man Ching).
Master Huang implemented elements and methodologies of the Whooping Crane style in his Taijquan practice.
The Song Shen Wu Fa exercises, the 37 posture form and the 18 Two Man Sets are the cornerstones of this practice.
In this first phase you will learn the solid foundations of the physical, structural, dynamic and internal concepts of Taijiquan.
The second method refers to the teachers of GM Sam Tam (Tam Maan Yin) who condensed in his practice the essential and deeper concepts of two important internal systems such as Taijiquan and Yi Quan (I Chuan).
Maximum exponent of internal skills worldwide, Sifu Sam Tam accepted Sifu Mauro as his direct disciple in 2022 and today represents a firm point of reference for our School.
With the second method, the practitioner will focus his practice on activating and using the strength of the Dan Tien, the most advanced engine of the Internal Arts.
The third method could be defined as the "Ancient Yang Taijiquan".
The continuous research and will to reach the roots of this art, have pushed Sifu Mauro to study the system handed down in his language under the guidance of Sifu Liang De Hua. Specifically, we are talking about GM Yang Shao Hou's style.
The traditionality of this third method will be in the study of forms, exercises and in the use of classical weapons.
