Class begins with approximately 45 minutes of general exercise aimed at developing the strength, endurance and other skills. While this usually takes the form of calisthenics, emphasis is also given to flexibility, balance, concentration, breathing and coordination. The remaining 1 hour and 15 minutes is spent learning new techniques or refining old ones. Forms, meditation, practical applications and fighting are also covered.

Each class may be divided beginner, intermediate and advanced groups. Each of these is lead by a qualified instructor and each class is supervised by a senior instructor or Master.

Within 2 to 3 years, a student may be eligible to take the test for her or his first degree.

Wing Chun Kung Fu at Michael Militano Wing Chun Kung Fu Michael Militano Wing Chun Kung Fu 1 Photo

Master Instructor — Michael Militano. From an early age, he demonstrated natural talent as an athlete and fighter, but after years of studying boxing, wrestling, some Karate. Jiu Jitsu, gymnastics, and various weaponry, he found his niche in Wing Chun (under the sole instruction of Grandmaster Jason Lau). After only three years of study, Grandmaster Jason Lau appointed Michael Militano to teach, and soon thereafter, to take over the school when Grandmaster Lau left New York.

​Instructors as well as many students from other martial arts schools have turned to Sifu Militano's expertise to enhance their knowledge of fighting - and for good reason. His competitive students (of all levels) have won numerous tournaments when competing against advanced level martial artists. Sifu Militano has taught Wing Chun to law enforcement instructors, military personnel, children, the blind and visually impaired, and he was invited to train the U.S. National Guard.
