DMAA Toronto

At DISCOVER MARTIAL ARTS ACADEMY (DMAA) our mission is to provide our students with self-confidence, discipline, fitness, and the skills needed for self-protection. We endeavour to cultivate the physical, the mind and the spirit through Kung Fu ideology and training.

DMAA focuses on developing values such as self-control, discipline, self-respect, and respect for others. We strive to teach conflict resolution while helping our students achieve tenacity and poise, rather than fearlessness.

Wing Chun

Wing Chun Kung Fu Techniques
The Traditional Wing Chun Kung Fu Methodology has always been an innovative whole body, functional, and highly practical fitness and self-defense training system derived over many years by Great Wing Chun Conditioning Coaches and Instructors. Through the recent Movie premiere of “IP Man” Wing Chun Kung Fu is displaying that students don’t have to be trying to build bigger, faster stronger muscles to be able to defend oneself from physical attack.

Wing Chun has created the most efficient Kung Fu Training Methodology as an ever-growing body of scientifically-applied, functional, integrative lifestyle conditioning fitness training geared to develop the martial artist in each all of us, no matter what level we start the journey.

This is a place where everyone can be care free and revealing their inner childhood memories of pursuing the path of a Martial Artist.  Capture the feeling once again of an inspiring training environment where a team of friendly patient trainers and Instructors, guided by the Principals and Theories of Traditional Wing Chun Training Methodology put theory and practice together to routinely build martial artist out of ordinary citizens, adult, teens and children.

Discover Martial arts Academy or “school” in the regular sense. We don’t use machines or fitness tools, we us principals and theories of Wingchun Kung Fu to teach techniques to integrate the Philosophy as a Whole in lifestyle

WingChun DMA Academy offers a female friendly training environment. For the benefit of our female students, the school operates it’s regular classes in a co-ed format where males and females train together. This is an important part of proper women’s self-defense training. It is important for females to train against larger males and do so in a safe environment.

With that said, WingChun DMA Academy is proud to offer an in-depth women’s self defense course that is a 12 part workshop, hosted once a month at both our Toronto & Mississauga locations. This course allows women to train together in an all female environment where they can learn self defense techniques that encompass the most common attacks used against females. Such techniques include but are not limited to Bear Hugs, chokes, hair pull, wrist grabs, hostage attacks, mounted ground attacks and weapons defense training.

The 90 Minute session includes a 30 minute Elite Conditioning session (Full body workout based on Martial Arts training) followed by a 60 minute workshop. In addition to the physical aspects of the class, students will be provided a question and answer session where questions and concerns that are unique to woman’s self defense can be discussed in a safe, non judgemental environment.

Wing Chun

Kung Fu Conditioning
The Chinese language has hundreds of dialects.  Some are so different they are like separate languages, even though they all read the same characters.  Most westerners are exposed to Mandarin or Cantonese.  Kung Fu is Mandarin for Gung Fu.  So Wing Chun Kung Fu is a mixture of two dialects.  Wing Chun is Cantonese, so Wing Chun Gung Fu is correct in Cantonese.  Yung Chun Kung Fu is correct in Mandarin.  We will use Kung Fu here because most people,world wide are familiar with “Kung Fu”.  Kung fu/gung Fu means any acquired skill.  A doctor, lawyer or a carpenter is doing kung fu.  The proper term for the martial arts in Chinese is Wu Shu or Mo Sut. Chi, or Qi is Mandarin for Hei in Cantonese.  Chi will be used because of its familiarity.
