Dear Wing Chun friends and colleagues,
Since its inception in 2001, the AWCA Distance Learning Program has helped practitioners all over the world realize their dream for learning Wing Chun Kuen. Participation is literally global, including:
With our headquarters in the United States, we have an abundance of U.S. members realizing their dreams of learning Wing Chun, with participant states including:
What Makes Our Program So Effective?
The AWCA Distance Learning Program is challenging, rewarding and focused on your progress. You have the goal of learning real Wing Chun Kuen, and the AWCA will help you reach that goal.
Today’s fast-paced environment demands the tools to keep up. That’s why our online program is directly accessible from any Internet-connected device, including PCs, smart phones and tablets. Our program allows you to discover how easy it is to learn Wing Chun at your own pace, yet still be part of a world wide organization.
Unlike most distance learning programs, we created our program in consultation with and guidance from professional distance learning educators. With their recommendations, we fine-tuned how our process is delivered.
Step-by-Step Training Videos
Narrated, full and slow-motion videos take you step-by-step through real-time Wing Chun training. Train at your own pace, pause, rewind, and play over and over.
Progression through the complete Wing Chun system, including:
Access to “Volume 1: Siu-Nim-Tau” & All AWCA Training Curriculums
Over 70 MB of narrated full and slow-motion videos.
180+ photos of the complete Siu-Nim-Tau form.
3-step photos and video-illustrated drills/applications.
In-depth concepts & theories of each facet of the Siu-Nim-Tau.
Plus, when you complete the Siu-Nim-Tau, you are granted free access to “Volume 2: Chum-Kiu” and “Volume 3: Chi-sau” to continue your training. When these are completed, you are granted free access to “Volume 4: Biu-Tze.” Each workbook is free when you complete the currculum and submit your testing.
eBook: “How To Train Wing Chun”
Originally written just for my students, “How To Train Wing Chun” is a collection of keypoints for making the most of your training efforts. With important training proverbs passed down from teacher to student over the last 300 years – as well as my own observations for today’s modern training situations – “How To Train Wing Chun” will greatly accelerate your understanding of each nuance for each form and its curriculum.
Chapter 1: The Five Stages of Learning
Understanding the five stages of learning and how to take a simple process for applying it to any level of training.
Chapter 2: Forms Training
Forms training is more than just mimicking what you see; instead, there are a variety of elements that can help you get the most from your efforts if you know about them. With this chapter, you will.
Chapter 3: Specialized Training
Utilizing Chi-sau, Lap-sau and Chi-gerk during sparring sessions.
Chapter 4: Creating Power
Still having problems generating the kind of jack-hammer hitting power you know you should be? That will be a thing of the past after working through this chapter.
Chapter 5: Staying Relaxed
Wing Chun requires a calm, relaxed, explosive nature in order to deliver our fighting methods. Here you will learn how to remain relaxed throughout your rigorous training and sparring sessions.
Chapter 6: Reality vs. Classroom
Many have approached their training from an unrealistic viewpoint, working dangerous and unworkable actions in the gym and thinking it will work in real life. In this chapter, I’ll show you how to keep your training at a realistic level so that you don’t fall into the trap of training something in a way that can see you hurt when you really need it.
Members-Only Online Training Section
Your secured member-only section allows you to access your training videos, study guides, and weekly training/fitness training programs for your specific level. As you progress in rank, the next rank is automatically opened up for you.
Whether you access your training from home, work, or on the road, your programs are always available. Gone are the days when you need to be tethered to just one computer or lug around a bunch of manuals or DVDs. Today’s world of technology is fully exploited in your program, and you can make the most of it right here!
Weekly Class Broadcasts
Tune in every Saturday to our secured class broadcast. Missed a class? No problem. You can view archived classes 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Webcam Sessions for Feedback 7 Testing
Need feedback? Want to test in real-time vs. submitting videos? Want to meet in real-time to make your training more personal? You can schedule a private 1-on-1 webcam session with Si-Fu Phil Bradley and get the personal attention you deserve.
Members-Only Private Bulletin Board & Forum
Stay in touch with your Wing Chun brothers and sisters around the world with your members-only forum and bulletin board. The forum includes helpful training tips and advice on all aspects of Wing Chun training, as well as reviews of training equipment and media.
Annual AWCA Training Camps
There are two members-only training camps held every year: one in Phoenix and one in Pennsylvania. While not mandatory, our members are encouraged to attend the camps in order to get hands-on personal training with Si-Fu Phil and their Wing Chun family from around the world.
Most camps are 3 days and include intensive training for each level vs. an overall theme. This means that no matter what your level is, you will always receive hands-on personal training for your level, plus the next.
Note that these are closed camps and not open to the public. They are made available only to AWCA members so that our members can get to us for personal and group training.
Officially-recognized Ranking & Certification
Regardless of where we all happen to live, all members of the AWCA are one family. Therefore, we make no distinction between a student personally here and a student in our distance program.
To that end, and unlike other schools, all AWCA rank recognition is standard throughout our organization. There are no deviations between certification issued here or around the world.
Want to get your family or significant other involved? No problem. Instead of multiple accounts and enrollments, plans are available so that instead of multiple accounts, you can share resources and save!
30-Day No Questions Asked Money Back Guarantee
Take the AWCA Distance Learning Program for a test spin for a full 30 days! If you’re not completely satisfied, simply cancel your subscription within 30 days. You’ll receive a complete refund with no questions asked.
How Does The Program Work?
Working with the AWCA’s Distance Learning Program is efficient, easy and very straight-forward.
Your Wing Chun journey begins with Student Grade 1. Simply open the study guide and work step-by-step through each hi-def MP4 video in order. Your video package covers every facet of training required.
You will also be using the AWCA’s official training curriculum, Volume 1: Siu-Nim-Tau, for more learning and knowledge enhancement. Very soon you will also see this workbook online so that it can be accessed from anywhere in the world.
Need help along the way or have a question? Si-Fu Phil is always available for you. Anything and everything, help is just an email or phone call away.
When you’re ready to test, you have multiple options: private webcam session, videos sent through email, videos posted on YouTube or DropBox, and even videos burned to DVD. The choice is yours!
After passing each rank, you receive your certificate and rank patch, and then receive access to the next level for continuation through the system. If more work needs to be done, Si-Fu Phil will guide you through what’s needed.
What Do Our Members Think?
Hi Si-Fu Phil… Something happened the other day that I wanted to tell you about. As I was picking my wife up from work, I had an encounter with a guy (my fault but I immediately apologized, which he didn’t want to hear of it). Long story short, he took a swing at me, to which I used a rear-arm Fook-dar and chain-punched him to the ground. The rear-hand defense saved my life, so THANK YOU for making the AWCA DLP possible!

Si-Fu Phil… I want to personally thank you for making the AWCA Distance Learning Program available. Serving in the military and being deployed all over the world means that regular attendance at a school is impossible. Finding the AWCA DLP allows me to continue my training, even to the point that now I create study groups at each new station. All military members should give the AWCA program a try. No matter where you go, the AWCA will be with you.

I finally found what works for my schedule and hectic lifestyle.
Si-Fu… Thanks for making such a great program available for those that don’t have qualified schools in their area. It’s a great comfort knowing I can finally train real Wing Chun with a real organization!
Great videos and easy to understand training makes this just what I have always looked for.

Si-Fu Phil… I spent a long time looking at every Wing Chun distance program I could find and comparing them side-by-side. I chose the AWCA because of the many features it offers and it’s definitely the best training decision I’ve ever made. Thank you for making this possible!
Enrollment & Getting Started
Many schools charge $75 to as high as $120 a month (with some schools charging even more). And that doesn’t even take into account the time getting there and back, the gas getting there and back, or time away from your family while training.
But you won’t find such exorbitant fees with the AWCA.
There are also no contracts at the AWCA because I don’t believe in them. Never have, never will. You’re here because of your passion to learn Wing Chun, not because you have to be.
Before the AWCA, I was paying $90 a month with a contract I couldn’t get out of. Because of an illness, I could no longer train but was still being charged. After it was over and I was better, I found the AWCA. After just a couple of months, I learned even more with Si-Fu Phil than I did at the previous school. Thanks, Si-Fu Phil, for actually caring about your students and doing the right thing by us.
