START LEARNING NOW!

Wing Tsjun Kung Fu has been proven to be one of the most effective self-defense systems of all times. Armed special forces of various countries (such as BOPE in Brazil, GSG9 and KSK in Germany or NOCS in Italy) have implemented the system into their training to ensure the survival of their professionals.

Now modern technology allows us to bring this incredible art into your home.

The Wing Tsjun curriculum consists of twelve student grades each of which has been carefully designed to ensure the best possible progress for the student. In the videos Dai Sifu Thommy Luke Boehlig himself explains the programs in detail and illuminates all topics, essential for a student test. Having taught WT to thousands of people from all over the world (including elite armed forces such as the Brazilian BOPE), GM Boehlig discovered that in order to effectively have a student develop in the system, a one-on-one training situation serves this goal much quicker and more efficiently than a group class format in which one instructor has to serve the needs of multiple students.

Therefore you will be taken into a private class environment where you will learn everything you need to pass each student grade straight from the source. As a student of the WT Online Academy you will be guided through the curriculum in the exact order that you would experience if you were a private student at BDS Headquarters in Germany. And the best thing is that you get to learn at your own pace from anywhere in the world.

Begin here by watching the first two videos for free.

Upon completing each segment of a student level, you will upload a video of yourself and your partner demonstrating the techniques required to pass each student grade. A Wing Tsjun master at the BDS HQ will evaluate your performance. If your performance meets the BDS standard you will be promoted to the next level.

See Grading Center for details

The Wing Tsjun curriculum is divided into three stages:

  • Basic Stage (student grades 1-4)
  • Intermediate Stage (student grades 5-8)
  • and Advanced Stage (student grades 9-12)

After having passed the eighth student grade, you are eligible to visit an Instructor Qualification Course, held at the international HQ in Germany or any of the national offices. Please visit How to become a WT Instructor to learn more about this course. Upon qualifying for your eleventh student grade, you will be prepared to participate in the Black Belt Qualification Course (twelfth and last student grade).

Although you will learn all the techniques required for black belt promotion online, the highest rank you can achieve through the Online Learning Academy is the eleventh student grade.

A Wing Tsjun Black Belt is more than just a person capable of defending himself. He is an ambassador for the art and a representative for the Wing Tsjun family. We hold the highest standards for our Black Belts. Therefore we will invite you to Germany to participate a five-day Black Belt Qualification Test at the BDS Academy headquarters in Langenfeld. In appreciation of the years of hard work you will have invested into your training, when the time comes, we will allow you to participate in the evaluation at no charge other than travel and living expenses. This offer only applies if you have been through the whole curriculum using the WT Online Academy. During this live evaluation we will test you on all aspects of Wing Tsjun, including technique, history, philosophy, principles, concepts and mottos (all of which will be available to you through the Online Academy). Upon successful completion, we will personally award you your Black Belt. Please click here to learn more about how to become a BDS instructor.
