In Depth Tuition with Master James Sinclair
Master The Art
Carousel contents not found!
Before I started any training I wanted to learn a self-defence system that would
work against a bigger and stronger opponent that did not require a lot of size
and strength to be effective. My brother’s friend told my brother and I about
wing chun and the calibre of Master James Sinclair. I did a little research into
the style and saw Master Sinclair on an episode of Way of The Warrior and in
1990 I joined the UKWCKFA knowing that I was on the right track. Master
Sinclair’s high level of practical knowledge and excellent teaching skills was
immediately apparent and I began to experience everything I was told about the
teacher and the organisation. The time and attention he devotes to each student
in the class can sometimes feel like you are having a private lesson. After two
and a half years of training I left to further my education at university and
stopped training to focus on my career.
In 2010 I returned to the UKWCKFA; I could have gone to another wing chun school
(as my friend did) but due to my previous experience of Master Sinclair’s
excellence of execution and teaching abilities, I knew that to train anywhere
else would be second best. Once I started training again, I noticed a slight
difference in the teaching style and in the application of some of the shapes
and techniques compared to when I first trained in 1990. Master Sinclair had
progressed the applications, making the fighting style and the training drills
much more alive and more suitable for a self-defence situation in the world we
live in today. His developments, his passion and his determination has produced
some talented wing chun practitioners and a great teaching and training
environment for any wing chun student at any level.
Thank you for all of your hard work and the years you have dedicated to your
skills and talents in the art, which you endeavour to pass on to your students.

I’ve been studying Wing Chun under Master James for the past 2 1/2 years.
From day 1: I’ve enjoyed the practicality in which the art is taught and how it can be applied in a street fight scenario. Ive found the training to be tough, mentally and physically, with a grading system to keep you encouraged.
All of the instructors are friendly and approachable, they also explain shapes and training techniques in great detail so It is easy and enjoyable to learn.
For me, it’s a disciplined class which is character building and self rewarding.
I would highly recommend anyone wishing to learn a self defence system to learn Wing Chun Kung Fu at the UKWCKFA

“I’ve been a student of the UKWCKFA for 15 years. And to say that it has transformed my character and overall well being is an understatement with words not putting my experiences to justice.
I typically joined wanting to learn the art and to get fit. But as the years progressed, it turned into a passion and a way of life.
Its safe to say that the person I’ve become could partly not have been made possible without the guidance and positive influence of Sifu James and Sifu Mark and will continue to train at the Academy for the indefinite future.”
As Master James Sincliar will agree, Wing Chun is best practiced with a training partner.
However, in these times of social distancing that is just not possible.
At UKWCKFA Sifu has managed to keep us students engaged by shooting live broadcasts of 30 minute lessons on Zoom that enable us to practice on our own.
The lessons so far have involved in depth understanding of the Sui Nim Tao and Cham Kiu forms. There were also discussions on the importance of correct movement of the body by floating and sinking, 6 point alignment, gaining energy from the ground up, to mention just some of the applications.
I am really enjoying the lessons and getting great insight so I can develop my skills – looking forward to the next one!
