Sydenham Wing Chun | Part Of The WCK UK Organisation


I’ve known Sifu Steve for many years and have always found his training/teaching methods to be excellent!
He teaches in a friendly manor… I personally need things broken down into small bite size pieces so as to understand the concept of what I’m being taught which is something Sifu Steve manages easily with a great amount of patience!

Highly recommended!

Testimonial for Sifu Steve Dare

I am a 5 year student in Wing Chun kung fu which has opened my eyes to the potential that lies within me.

I have been training martial arts for the past 10 years on & off and have found nothing like Wing Chun and the way that Sifu Steve teaches it!
Most martial art classes just take you through the motions, but do not cover the finer details. Sifu Steve is able to transmit those finer details in an easy to understand fashion!If you are looking for the real deal and to have fun along the way, than Sifu steve is the instructor you have been looking for!

Testimonial for Sydenham Wing Chun

I’ve been training in Wing Chun for about 4 years & can honestly say Sifu Steve is a great instructor!
He has excellent teaching abilities with a great skill set to boot! You will learn a no nonsense rapid powerful System that will allow you to protect yourself, family and values.

Through the teachings of Sifu Steve, I have developed as a person and a Martial Artist. I myself have defended myself using Wing Chun on a couple of occasions and I am very thankful for the Wing Chun that I have learned which has proven to be an excellent self defence system!

Sifu Steve Dare is someone you can trust 100% and what you see is what you get, skill, knowledge and devastating effectiveness!

Testimonial for Sifu Steve Dare

Having been fairly inactive for a number of years, but always having had an interest in martial arts I was pretty anxious about taking one up, both from a physical fitness and a “please don’t let me be an embarrassment” point of view. My concerns were allayed within the first 10 minutes of the very first class!

Steve Dare runs a fantastically welcoming club, part of the WCKUK Organisation, and is so supportive, encouraging, and dedicated to ensuring that every student becomes the best they possibly can.

So grateful I found this club!

Testimonial for Sifu Steve Dare

Fearful of taking up a new hobby due to time constraints, family commitments and work, I was concerned about learning something utterly out of my comfort zone and walking into a martial arts lesson as a middle-aged mum, far removed from peak fitness. It took many weeks to take the plunge and go along for a free trial at my local club in Sydenham. I figured the worst thing that could happen was that I’d discover it was too physically demanding or just wasn’t for me and I had nothing to lose.

I could have kicked myself for not having gone sooner as the welcome I received from Sifu Steve Dare and from the students in the class was warm and inviting but not overbearing. It is my good fortune to be a member of this club: Sifu Steve is incredibly patient, engaging and a great guide for somebody with bad knees and zero martial arts knowledge!

My fellow students have been very helpful, patient and kind to this newbie. I don’t know what I expected, but there’s no chest puffing or strutting egos; just nice people who are genuinely happy to help others. Taking up an alternative hobby or learning path, entering something completely different and new can present itself as a challenge. However, I’ve had no pressure to progress rapidly beyond my ability and although I’m not the fastest of learners (!), things are clicking into place (I’ve been a member for about three months at this point) and I’m happy to have this opportunity to learn something new and rewarding in a friendly, fun and safe environment.
