Wing Chun is one of the most effective self-defense systems available, and we'll show you how to use it to protect yourself from any punch. This video is for anyone who wants to learn how to defend themselves against any punch, no matter how strong the opponent may be.

Wing Chun Kung Fu taught by Retired Police Officer and Defensive Tactics Expert, Dominick Izzo.

Dominick Izzo has been training Wing Chun since 1998 and has been teaching in the Chicago area since 2008. He was the first American Wing Chun instructor to be published and published in back to back issues in Wing Chun Illustrated.

He is known for his realistic, aggressive and combative approach to Wing Chun Kung Fu.

Wing Chun is a martial art that emphasizes close-range combat and efficient movement. To stop a punch from an attacker using Wing Chun, you could try one of the following techniques:

Deflect the punch: Using a Wing Chun technique called "Tan Sau," you can deflect the punch by raising your arm and hand in an upward and outward motion, turning your palm outward as you do so. This will redirect the punch away from your body and create an opening for you to counterattack.

Block the punch: Using a Wing Chun technique called "Bong Sau," you can block the punch by raising your arm and hand in a circular motion, keeping your elbow bent and close to your body. This will create a barrier between the punch and your body, protecting you from the impact.

Evade the punch: Instead of trying to stop the punch directly, you could try to move out of the way of the punch. This can be done by taking a step to the side or by leaning back slightly. By evading the punch, you can avoid being hit and create an opportunity to counterattack.

It's important to remember that self-defense situations can be unpredictable and dangerous, and it's always best to avoid confrontation if possible. If you are in a situation where you need to defend yourself, it's important to stay calm and think clearly so that you can choose the best course of action.
