Wing Chun is a type of martial art that’s been around for centuries — ever since a civil war in China 400 years ago. At that time, a group of Shaolin masters using different martial arts styles came together and created a new, more practical system. That one became known as Wing Chun, one of the first and oldest mixed martial arts styles.
Of course, over time, Wing Chun has evolved and changed, eventually becoming the modern version we teach today. But its main principles and the underlying codes of honour, loyalty, and family still remain the same. In many ways, Wing Chun is more than just a combat style. It’s a way of living that requires discipline, focus, and determination.
As such, it’s a perfect martial art for all ages and genders. In Wing Chun, it’s not all about the strength of the strike but rather the economy of movement and logic behind each action. You train your mind as well as your body, and that’s precisely why it draws in so many people from all walks of life.
And to cater to everyone, Red Boat Kung Fu offers classes for both adults and children. We used to be an adults-only school, but it’s never too early to start practising Wing Chun. So now, your child can attend too!
The first thing you’ll notice when you come to our classes is how relaxed everyone is. No matter what level they are, none of our attendees will look down on you if you haven’t mastered a certain technique. In fact, we work to promote a pleasant, collaborative atmosphere that encourages everyone to do their best! So, you’ll have no reason to feel insecure — we’re all here to make sure you succeed.
As one of the best schools for MMA Sydney has to offer, we’ve made sure to hire only exceptionally talented instructors. Our staff members aren’t just superb at martial arts they teach, but they also know how to transfer those skills to others. On top of that, they strive to build a positive bond with all their students and thus encourage progress.
Our main instructor and founder, Sifu Rick Spain, perfectly represents everything our school stands for. He’s determined, dedicated, and disciplined, never settling down for average results. He applies a similar philosophy when working with his students, so you can expect great progress with him as your instructor. Currently, he teaches:
Other instructors at our school follow a similar mindset as our Sifu, though everyone has their own teaching style. So come and get to know them all — we’re sure you’ll find all classes enjoyable!
Have you ever dreamt of winning a black belt as a child? Well, now you can actually achieve that!

Here is the progression of belts for adults:
Of course, no one will force you to take part in belt grading if you don’t want to. But for your own sake, it might be worth it!

And when the whole focus is on you, you’re sure to improve much more quickly!
Plus, you’ll no longer be tied to the schedule that the group attendees have. In fact, you can choose any time that suits you best to work with your personal instructor. Call and arrange an appointment — it’s as simple as that!

Stories from our Martial Arts Family
I cannot overstate the benefits on my life. I used to get sick all the time, and was a frequent sufferer of migraines and tonsillitis – both at least once a month. Since joining Wing Chun, I’ve only had one migraine and haven’t had tonsillitis in six months; I recently cancelled surgery for their removal. My blocked sinuses have cleared, and for the first time in my entire life, I breathe regularly through my nose. My flat feet are developing arches – something my podiatrist said was impossible. I sleep a lot less and have so much more energy throughout the day. Though it may be counter intuitive, adding Wing Chun into my routine has allowed me to do more, and has become catalyst for a lot of other activities.
Training has improved my self esteem and given me a sense of achievement. I have been able to set goals to help me overcome my battle with cancer. I have improved as a person and gained self confidence which has enabled me to help other students and also with conducting classes when others are absent.
I have grown confidence in many areas where I know I had fear, as I have learned from teachers and students ways to channel that fear to fight rather than flight when needed, not only in martial arts but in many other mental and physical challenges I face.
