At Wing Chun & Jiu-Jitsu Melbourne we believe that everyone should learn martial arts to defend themselves both on the feet and on the ground. Wing Chun Kung Fu and Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) complement one another, and in combination are a most effective way of dealing with an attacker.
The martial arts techniques we teach are effective for anyone regardless of age, gender, size or athleticism – because we always assume you are defending against a larger, stronger and more agile opponent.
Our Martial Arts School is about realistic training and the pursuit of excellence in self-defence.
We don’t just teach martial arts techniques. We emphasise the importance of timing and positioning in our martial arts classes, and highlight how even perfect self-defence techniques will fail if you don’t learn when and when not to use them.
Come train in a family-friendly environment, where people of all ages and martial art experience are encouraged to learn self-defence to protect themselves.
You are guaranteed to make new friends in a welcoming and safe atmosphere.
We teach people martial arts in Melbourne to defend themselves in the hope that they will never need to.
Better to have trained in martial arts and never need it, than to need it and have never trained.

Wing Chun Kung Fu and Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) martial arts classes both begin with a warm up that focuses on stretching to help prevent injuries. Strengthening and conditioning exercises may also be included in the warm up.
The proper use of techniques and their application is demonstrated in each martial arts class. Students are encouraged to discuss what is taught and the situations in which martial arts techniques should and shouldn’t be used, problems they are having with particular martial arts techniques, and self-defence issues more generally. The instructor will give personal attention to students to enable them to learn and practice martial arts techniques of varying levels of difficulty and to prepare for grading when appropriate. Sparring is introduced to the curriculum as students advance. Wing Chun Kung Fu students are taught various “forms” and encouraged to practise them most classes. There are no forms in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu).
Women of all ages are encouraged to try any and all of our martial arts in Melbourne classes. A number of women already train at Wing Chun & Jiu-Jitsu Melbourne, and more are most welcome!

Students are taken through the school syllabus systematically. Students are catered to individually consistent with their martial arts experience and level of proficiency.
Curriculum-based teaching is important so that students learn everything there is to learn as efficiently and effectively as they can.
Naturally, easier techniques are taught first in martial arts classes.
Once students have mastered the simpler techniques, the level of difficulty increases. The simpler techniques are not abandoned, but a greater level of proficiency is developed.
Pressure-testing of techniques is employed to teach students how best to apply the techniques they have learnt. A cooperative opponent is used initially. Once it is appropriate, a fully resistant opponent is used. Sparring to pressure-test skills and developing adaptability is essential. Martial artists only fully realise their potential in a contested situation. Pressure-testing and sparring reveals why techniques need to be practised time and time again, then further refined so that they can be implemented properly and powerfully at a moment’s notice. Nothing is more important for morale than having confidence in the arsenal of techniques that we, as martial artists, possess when confronted by unavoidable conflict.
Students are encouraged to question the efficacy of all techniques taught at Wing Chun & Jiu-Jitsu Melbourne training sessions. Declan is happy to accommodate pressure-testing on himself for those who doubt the efficacy of the techniques being taught. It is best that students test themselves using their instructor or a senior student nominated by him — in other words, someone who is proficient in technique and able to adapt to random attacks as a result of years of training and experience in sparring and fighting. This allows the students in martial arts in Melbourne to exhaust their energies and extinguish their doubts without risk of injury.
