Eight Pattern Wing Chun Kung Fu

The Author

The author, Matthias Gruber, is a professional researcher, specialized in biomedical informatics and artificial intelligence.

He has been studying Wing Chun (Yip Man 葉問 lineage) since 1991, mainly with Grandmaster Keith-R. Kernspecht's Organization. His Sifu is Master Mario Janisch, 6th level practitioner. He has developed the Eight Pattern Wing Chun System during the years 1999 to 2011, using some of the methods and knowledge from his research and from other lineages.

In Wing Chun, intensive private training is the most efficient way to progress. Furthermore, it is better to learn from more than just one source. For this reason the author only teaches a handful of students privately and focusses his own training accordingly.
