About the CWTAA

The City Wing Tsun Athletic Association is an independent Wing Tsun (WT) network focused on delivering world-class instruction and the life-changing benefits of this art without the politics plaguing other organizations. The programs at City Wing Tsun are optimized both in curriculum & methods of teaching by combining the best aspects of the tried & true traditional methods with modern protocols and sensibility. All instructors teaching WT-curriculum classes are qualified Sifu-level instructors taught and tested by the strict quality standards of the CWTAA who each possess not only Wing Tsun certification, but also leadership certification qualifying them to teach our Wing Tsun curriculum using the best possible practices.

Classes Offered

  • WT-Prep: Never did Wing Tsun (WT) before? No problem. Begin here with the eight lessons necessary to build a solid foundation.  Form, basics, self-defense, footwork, kicks, and so much more. One of the most comprehensive and well-structured programs for beginners the world over. We created this program specifically to give beginners not only the necessary building blocks for future curriculum, but to also ensure that they understand the fundamentals of self-defense as quickly as possible.

  • WT-Foundations: This is for students who already have some WT experience. Foundational training is the most vital to success and one of the cornerstones of Wing Tsun! This program covers the WT program for Student Levels 1 through 8.

  • WT-Mastery: With a solid understanding of Foundations we can build towards Mastery. This level is for students who have completed Chi Sau Program 1 with a minimum of Student Level 9. It continues through 3rd Level Technician (Wooden Dummy).

  • WT-Leadership: These classes are essential for Wing Tsun instructors or those who wish to become Wing Tsun instructors. Our leadership program is geared towards not only preparing instructors to have the most solid understanding of the curriculum, but also the necessary knowledge of how best to teach that curriculum to other students. The minimum WT level requirement is 1st Level Technician.

  • Theory: Sifu Alex Richters holds a monthly live theory class with a Q&A session (any WT topics) for CWTAA LIVE Online Academy students.

  • FITCanvas: This is the best way to stay in shape from home with NO equipment! FitCanvas combines calisthenics with WT & martial arts movements. 

  • Special Topic: The Special Topic class taught every Sunday is all about doing a deep-dive in the details on a particular topic. Designed to increase your knowledge of topics to a higher level that is unrivaled by most other martial artists. 

  • Wing-Bas: A tough 28-minute circuit of WT-Shadowboxing and calisthenics to push your muscular endurance capabilities.
