The ITC: Intensive Training Camp
City Wing Tsun's Intensive Training Camp is unlike any other program that exists. A dynamic, hands-on intensive, specially designed to help any student dramatically improve their Wing Tsun (wing chun) by training all day, every day, for an entire week. The ITC’s fully immersive program combines intensive technical instruction, heavy sparring, and integrated theory - all under the personal guidance of Sifu Alex Richter. Students train for 6 hours per day, Monday through Friday. During the ITC weekend, Sifu Alex Richter teaches two days (4-5 hours each day) of special topics outside of the standard program curriculum. The ITC is perfect for anyone who wants to quickly improve their Wing Tsun or their teaching skills and knowledge.
This unique training approach instills students with a heightened levels of focus and determination, allowing them to improve their skills drastically in just a few days. On top of all of that, it is a tremendous amount of fun while remaining challenging.
ITC alumni find the ITC not only advances their skills rapidly over the course of the week, it also helps them absorb new material faster once they return to their regular classes. All our ITC participants overwhelmingly report a massive leap forward in their Wing Tsun skills.
See what students are saying about City Wing Tsun's ITC in the video below!
ITC training develops fighting skills from the ground up, the way Wing Tsun was designed to be practiced! Sparring training will build skills, cooperatively at first and then progressively increasing the resistance of non-Wing Tsun attacks.
Thematic and Level-Specific Curriculum
Every ITC will have a strong focus on footwork in both fighting and in Chi Sau for all levels. All students will be reviewed on their entire program cumulatively and there will be a serious amount of tough training for all. 201-Level (SL4-8): Chi Sau Program 1, Gwo Sau, practical fighting, and integrating the 5 ranges of fighting. 301-Level (SL9-12): Integrating Chi Sau Program 2 into practical fighting and Gwo Sau. Advanced (Primary Technician – 2nd Level): Focus is on the Biu Tze program, both technical and application. Senior Students (2nd Level Technician +): The Wooden Dummy Program in tremendous detail.
Advancement / Exam Prep
All participants (except those at Student Level 8) who successfully participate in all 30 hours of the ITC (M-F) will advance 2 student levels. Student Level 8 students who attend will prepare for the major test at the end of the week and the transition to Student Level 9.
Qualified participants at Student Level 10 and above may take the exam for Primary Level Technician if they have learned the entire 301 program (SL10-Primary TL) before starting the ITC. Only CWTAA members are eligible to advance in rank. Eligibility for any advancement at the discretion of Sifu Alex Richter. Monday through Thursday will include individual assessments on all areas of the Technician exam – form, program, application, and theory. Instructors including Sifu Alex assess all students in the program and give feedback on their progress by Thursday. On Friday students will have the chance to demonstrate their progress in any areas that needed improvement. After successful demonstration of the material students will advance in level and/or take the final portion of their exams on Friday evening.
