Wing Chun’s stances and movements are designed to drive the entire body weight forward with a strong forward momentum or intent. Whereas most martial artists try to create distance between themselves and their opponent, a Wing Chun fighter always seeks to close the gap by employing simultaneous defense and attack.

This counterintuitive reaction will often surprise an attacker, and create a close-range combat situation in which the highly trained reflexes of a Wing Chun fighter will have a significant advantage.
