The Martial Art System called Federation Wing Tsun Kung-Fu makes up one part of the complete Federation Wing Tsun System.
Federation Wing Tsun Kung-Fu is an unarmed martial art system derived from the mechanics of weapons.
The complete system is made up of three parts: The elements, the creative relationship, and the control relationship. These parts are all connected as shown in the diagram below:
There are a total of five elements, and each of the relationships has a total of five connections, as shown in the table below:
The term ‘system’ is defined as “related elements with a common function”.
Federation Wing Tsun Kung-Fu is a system of martial art, meaning that the function of this system is to empower you, the user, with an ability to understand, rapidly analyse, and freely converse in the physical ‘language’ that is unarmed combat.

Please note that the Federation Wing Tsun Kung-Fu System is primarily an unarmed martial art. It has been specifically designed to cope with the unarmed vs. unarmed scenario, however it does ‘connect’ perfectly with any armed discipline which employs hand weapons correctly, such as Escrima, Kali or Arnis.
If you wish, weapons training can take place alongside unarmed training right from the start, or at any point in the future, with absolutely no problems. There are no ‘clashes’ between the armed & the unarmed concepts as you learn, and if you are already familiar with weapons, there will be no need to change anything that you’ve already learnt – assuming your weapons knowledge is correct!
This is because Federation Wing Tsun Kung-Fu has been developed with constant reference to correct body mechanics and proper weapons concepts as the baseline standards, by someone who trains & teaches the use of weapons on a daily basis. History shows that this is exactly how Wing Chun was developed in the first place. I believe that I have done no more than return the discipline to the principles upon which it was originally founded.
