Where does the name IWKA come from?
IWKA stands for Internal Wisdom & Knowledge Association and was founded by Grand Master Sifu Sergio Pascal Iadarola. He has carried out extensive research into the history behind this Martial Art. This knowledge is now being shared around the world via the IWKA system.
Sifu Sergio is one of the first westerners to open successful Wing Chun Academies in Hong Kong and Mainland China. There are IWKA schools in several European countries including The Netherlands, United Kingdom, Italy, Austria, Lithuania, Germany, France, Belgium, Cyprus, Greece, Croatia, Turkey and Australia.
The art of Wing Chun has a number of spellings/ translations but all share the same historical roots around the 1700s. Wing Tjun is the spelling the IWKA uses to distinguish from other systems and lineages. Some other spelling variations you might find are Wing Tsun, Ving Tsun, Weng Chun and Wing Tzun. Wing Chun Kung Fu originated from the fusion of two disciplines; Emei 12 Zhuang and Fujian White Crane and was created for use in short distance fighting.
At our spacious and fully equipped South Brisbane Kung Fu School, our students learn Sifu Sergio Iadarola’s renowned Kung Fu Systems. The systems are practised by thousands of students in IWKA schools and academies worldwide.
