    Please Help - Seeking Legit Wing Chun in Chicago

    Hello,

    I am located in Chicago, and am seeking instruction in Wing Chun. However, like much of the Wing Chun scene generally, I am finding a tremendous amount of bickering/in-fighting/politics in the area makes it tough for a newbie to figure out where to find good instruction.

    Any help/leads would be greatly appreciated.

    The best wing chun is called BJJ. Keep it secret, keep it safe.

    The likely not very satisfying answer might just be move to Seattle, find Jesse Glover.

    Well, not quite so far as Seattle is http://www.chanskungfu.com/. I can't comment on how good they are but from what I hear the lineage is good. At worst maybe you could ask them for a reference in Chicago.

    Might I interest you in another type of kung fu though? Wing Chun isn't too high on my list. There's gotta be a ton of good stuff in Chicago. I can personally recommend Golden Mountain Kung Fu in Naperville.

    they have some youtube vids if you wanna see some footage of training.

    also Wong Shun Leung lineage. which in my biased opinion, is the best. and proven.
