What is WingTchunDo?
WingTchunDo™ is the martial art system formulated from the training and fight experience of Sifu Fernandez. This is based on the WingTsun™ system, created by Grandmaster Ip Man’s penultimate private student, GM Leung Ting, as well as the teachings of Ip Man’s third disciple, GM Chu Shing Tin and the Ip Chun lineage via Felix Leong.This is the most in-depth look at the WingTsun (Wing Chun) system ever put on video. The WingTsun™ System is from the Yip Man lineage passed down to Leung Ting. It is the most practiced version of Wing Chun in the world – yet the higher levels are kept secret and students are charged tens of thousands of dollars to learn them. It is not uncommon for a Sifu, like Master Fernandez, to have spend over $150,000 acquiring this knowledge. Now, for the first time ever, this system (and all of its secrets) is taught openly to the public. This includes the famous Butterfly Swords and Long Pole (acquired from 2 lineages and blended wonderfully together) – which have never been shown on video or taught publicly before.
Sifu Fernandez started his studies under Grandmaster Chu Shong Tin’s student Jim Fung in 1972. He was at the time the youngest student to ever learn Wing Chun in Australia. (Chu Shong Tin is Ip Man’s 3rd disciple). He later studied under various Sifus of the Leung Ting lineage (learning the westernized versions of the system), and then under Grandmaster Leung Ting himself (learning the Chinese versions of the system) (Leung Ting was also a private student of Ip Man – about the 15th one more or less). Master Fernandez has also worked security for over 20 years, including body-guarding Grandmaster Ting himself. He has had hundreds of documented fights from his work, and many more “encounters” working security at clubs. He comes to you with 40 years in the martial arts, the knowledge of 2 complete Wing Chun systems, and a lot of real street-fighting experience – and with the pure intention of teaching you everything he knows.
WingTchunDo is Sifu Fernandez’s evolution of the WingTsun/Wing Chun system. You will learn the Chinese version, the Westernized version, and Sifu Fernandez’s evolution of the system to encompass modern fighting systems and teaching you how to adapt and use your Wing Chun in every situation possible.
“…at over 92 hours of instruction, this is the largest and most complete video course ever made for the art of Wing Chun. The level of detail Sifu Fernandez goes into is amazing! Plus he reveals the WingTsun Butterfly Swords for the first time on video as well as all the WingTsun system ‘secrets’… Not to mention the improvements to WingTchunDo based on 40 years of fighting experience. Thank you, Sifu, for honestly giving us the entire system (for the first time ever!) with nothing held back!”

Your teacher/Sifu for the WingTchunDo Course will be Sifu Fernandez – an experienced instructor, renowned bouncer and body guard. His street fighting experience has helped him formulate and further evolve his studies in combat and martial arts – bringing you the best experience and knowledge he has to offer.
He began training Wing Chun in 1972 under the lineage of Chu Shong Tin (Ip Man -> Chu Shong Tin -> Jim Fung -> Sifu Fernandez) and has mastered the WingTsun system as a private student of Grandmaster Leung Ting (Ip Man -> Leung Ting -> Sifu Fernandez). In addition, Fernandez also excelled in other arts such as boxing, kick boxing, Greco-Roman wrestling, Doce Pares, Filipino escrima and various lineages of Wing Chun Kung Fu.
These WCU lessons are very precise and informative. Sifu Fernandez gives you detailed and realistic views on Wing Chun as an art and as a street fighting system. He breaks away from many myths, taboos and hocus pocus misinformation found in the art today. His broad-minded view on many fighting systems shows in the evolution of classical Wing Chun to WingTchunDo (which is a global application of the Wing Chun and Wing Tsun systems). WingTchunDo was officially founded in 2005.
