Some comments we received for the year 2009. Thank you all!

To whom it may concern,
I started learning Yin Kin Wing Chun (“YKWC”) in the beginning of 2009. Prior to signing up with YKWC, some common online research was done. As I went through several websites / blogs, I finally decided to pay a visit to Grandmaster Yip Fook Choy’s YKWC class in Taman Tun Dr. Ismail. This was merely triggered by a friendly and prompt SMS reply from the YKWC instructor, Kahar Saidun.
The visit was very appealing, as I was able to experience the two YKWC core forms (Saifa & Daifa) and its training methods. I also experienced a very impressive Wing Chun inch punch from the instructor, Kahar. In addition, the people were very nice and friendly, especially Kahar. This visit marked my first class.
Surprises continued to unfold. In my third class, I met the grandmaster, our Sifu, Yip Fook Choy, a reputable, humble, friendly and patient man with an amazing and versatile Kung Fu skill highly acknowledged by the martial arts world. It is truly an honor to learn under Sifu Yip Fook Choy.
Throughout the learning, my enthusiasm for YKWC kept on growing. Starting from the basic stances / foot works to Qigong, then moving on to the seven hands and the eight legs, followed by the core forms, Saifa and Daifa. Every learning stage excited me, surprises just never stopped. It is really learning joy for me to attend classes. It is difficult for me to express how wonderful YKWC is. The energy application, principles, movement, etc, are just so amazing and fascinating to me.
Apart from the joy of learning, I noticed a tremendous improvement in my health. After practicing YKWC, I now rarely fall sick and my usual clinic/doctor visit has been reduced significantly as compared to before. As a result, I had a very high percentage of unutilized medical leaves for 2009 of above 75. This never happened before in any of my previous jobs. This improvement is mirrored by my immune system where I now generally recover much faster from the common sicknesses caused by foods or fatigue, as compared to my condition earlier. Besides, my stamina had also been strengthened, as I can now do double portion of my usual cardio exercise without being breathless like before. I feel energetic and refreshed in almost every area of my life now. These may sound unrealistic or like some kind of magic, but these are truly what I have personally experienced.
Lastly, but not least, I wish to take this opportunity, to sincerely thank Sifu and Kahar for introducing YKWC to me and for patient teaching and guidance. I wish them good health and all the best in 2010!

Yip Kin Wing Chun is a TOTAL ARTFORM, it provides me means to manifest myself: mind body and soul as one.

I find the class very unique because this Chinese martial art (Yip Kin Wing Chun) is taught by a Malay Instructor (with 18 years of Wing Chun Background Mr. Kahar is really somebody), which actually open up many aspects for example: the class is in English so we can see many students who are from other races, and it make the art's explanation much easier.
In short, I enjoy this class very much, its atmosphere friendly and always interesting. So I encourage everyone to drop by for a class for a trial class :-)

I find that Wing Chun displays a sort of practicality that is often missing from other martial arts. The practical use of the techniques are equally important as the theory taught. Through this, the techniques learned from Wing Chun can be applied properly, that is if the need arises, in real life. Besides that, Wing Chun's theories and principles are supported by logic. For example, when I apply the principle of the center line, I manage to reach the target quickly as the shortest distance between two points is a straight line.

Sifu Yip Fook Choy and Kahar Saidun have an answer to every type of attack and are passionate to see their student improve their skills. These are the ideal attributes to look for in a kung fu school. I've been to quite a few kungfu schools worldwide from the Leung Ting and Wong Shun Leung lineages in Germany and in the UK. But Yip Kin Wing CHun is unique by far and possess an unparalleled depth with respect to the training of the specialized energies required for Wing Chun fighting.
