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.
