Wingchun is a form of Kungfu with a history of just 300 years, it's considered quite modern but still one of the three great martial art styles of Southern China.
It was founded during the Qing Dynasty by a Buddhist nun, Ng Mui, of the famed Shaolin Temple. According to legend, Ng found her inspiration after witnessing a fight between a stork and large rodent where the stork was able to repel the rodent's attacks by using its wings and legs to attack and defend simultaneously. .
