    Question:
    Does anyone know if there's anyone who teaches/practices wing chun in St. Louis, MO? The closest thing I've found are classes in jun fan gung fu. If anyone has any info, I'd greatly appreciate the feedback.

    Thanks,
    Joe

    Thanks for the reply Matt, sorry I've taken so long to respond. Do you know anything on the background of S.C. Ray?

    Hi. I'm new to Wing Chun and was looking for a good dojo near the 63103 midtown area of Saint Louis, Missouri.

    I saw the link above but was looking to see if I had more options. Is the dojo above any good?

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks!

    I am located in St.louis Missouri. I have trained wing chun for ten years. My Sifu is not taking new students. But I still see him once a week. Some of my other Wing Chun brothers I see through out the week so we can work out and spar. What part of STL are you in? Where are the Jun Fan classes at? I also know some others who teach Mixed Wing Chun if your interested?

    i spoke with the Sifu at:http://stlouismartialartscenter.com/

    They do not teach pure Wing Chun. There are some WC concepts but its basically just MMA. They teach a little Muay Thai, Wing Chun, other shaolin styles and alot of BJJ and Wrestling! So if you like MMA this a great school. But there is a Wing Chun school in St.Charles Missouri!

    They teach Wing Chun and Hung Gar. They give a great work out. Try the free class. I am not sure how well they fight. I didn't get to spar with anyone!

    Here is a site similiar to their school: Not the actual school though!!!

    Not the school in St.louis/St.Charles
    http://www.afn.org/~afn59160/

    I think the school is off Fifth I do not remember. Its hard to find their info on the net? There is also a free Tai Chi Class on Sundays where there are two Wing Chun instructors who also do a little Wing Chun later on during push hands, Chi Sau and light sparring? I never been to a Tai Chi class that did Chi Sau before...its great and its free! Plenty of sparring partners from other styles. The class is located on Olive Rd in University City. Or U.City for St.louisans. Sundays from 10am-12pm. Its free I love it.

    stay away from st. louis martial arts center. i have first hand knowledge of the amazing craptasticness of "master" ray.

    if you have any questions, google master steven c. ray. you'll see the bullshido investigation comes up as number 2 or 3. i activly participated in that investigation along with others. we found very disturbing trends and practices at his school and in his background.

    Thanks Bannana Smoothie. I talked with the Sifu at the school It is pretty much just mixed martial arts. He takes alittle from many different arts an fuses it into a fighting style.

    But if you looking for a great work out or well roundedness that would be cool. I perfer to authenic traditonal chinese boxing. Thats what I like the most.

    But I havent heard about any investigations...Do you have a link?

    I don't think it's WC, but they might point you in the right direction.

    Black Dragon Society

    From what I've seen, they're a really fun, friendly school.

    Yes i had a chance to chi sau with him a few times when he first came to Saint Louis. i wanted my Sihing to meet with him. I Like his lineage of Wing Chun its cool to see how different lineages feel. I practice Yuen Kay San Wing Chun. I have to check you guys out again one day.
