Wei Chi Sanshou
Welcome to Wei Chi Sanshou club
Learn to Punch, Kick, Lock, Reap, Sweep and Throw!
"Wei chi" translates directly as "External or Muscular power".
For us this term comes from the I Ching (The Book of change) and refers to our lives not yet being completed or reaching inside ourselves to use our unlimited potential!
What do we do?
We teach a combat martial art known as Sanshou. Whether you are a future Olympian or wish to learn an effective fighting style for Self defence or health our Sanshou classes are ideal for you. These classes are a great challenge to all who attend and are suitable for total beginners and experienced fighters (of any style).
If you wish to fight there are full and light contact options available, you will have the opportunity to compete at local, national and international events.
The focus of our classes
The goal of these classes are to prepare fighters for competition. If you do not wish to compete but want to train in an environment where you will learn some fighting skills, self defence and/or want to improve and test your technique you have come to the right place. Welcome!
Whether you wish to fight or not you will train the same as everyone else, regardless of age, fitness levels or gender, you will train like a fighter and as a result your body will change, your persona will change, you will become fighting fit and fighting confident. You will be happier and much healthier!
