EDWARDO A. - WING CHUN - PRIOR; BJJ, MUAY THAI, KICKBOXING
I have trained in brazilian jiujitsu, kickboxing, karate and muay thai for years, but in my first class, I realized there was so much I could gain from Wing Chun Kung Fu & Chinese Combat. I'm in better physical conditioning now then when I was in my twenties, thanks to Sifu Och's Boot Camp Style Training, Hardcore Wing Chun Sparring, cross training us on what other styles do in combat to increase our abilities in Wing Chun and tips on what to eat, I am not only leaner but 15lbs lighter & am far beyond what I was. One day I want to achieve the Highest Levels of Wing Chun Kung Fu under Sifu Och and make him proud.
- PRIOR; TAEKWONDO AND OTHER SELF DEFENSE COURSES
Having gone to other martial arts in the area, once we saw and practiced at our first class of Sifu Och's Wing Chun Kung Fu Self Defense, the only thing I can say is... Absolutely Amazing! We and our girls trained in the Sifu Och Wing Chun Self Defense courses. We have learned so much for the safety of ourselves and our girls! Thank you Sifu Och and the instructors at Sifu Och's school for teaching and showing us Wing Chun Reality based training.
- PRIOR; COMBAT TRAINING, SHAOLIN KUNG FU & SPORTS
Flying in from Egypt we came to Sifu Och's Wing Chun Training Facility not knowing what to expect, we were not only greeted with enthusiasm and friendship from all who train there especially Sifu Och. In my opinion the Training was by far the best I had ever seen and been apart of, it was realistic and straight forward. There was no fluff or wasted movement, every movement meant something devastatingly effective. I intend to continue this training in Egypt and Fly back to the United States as much as possible until I can eventually move here to take my Wing Chun & Chinese Combat Training to the next level.
NATE'S FATHER - WING CHUN - PRIOR; WING CHUN KUNG FU
Training in Wing Chun previously and having a comfrontation arise where I had to defend myself from two attackers out in a parking lot the only Martial Art I trust and go to is Sifu Och's Wing Chun Kung Fu. Having had to use Wing Chun myself in a serious situation I know this works and so will you.
NATE & MOTHER - KIDS KUNG FU - PRIOR; NONE
We love the confidence and protection that Chinese Combat Kids Kung Fu has given to our Nate, we have seen an increase in discipline and confidence I would highly reccommend Sifu Och's Wing Chun to any Family and we do.

MICHEAL V. - WING CHUN - PRIOR; TAEKWONDO, KARATE
By experiencing an art like Wing Chun, I have gained confidence in myself and have also gotten a better understanding on how to handle difficult situations if they arise. Training & Sparring in Wing Chun training has put me in better shape. I have improved my eating habits and I have more energy and I do not get tired in class anymore. It has made me more alert and more aware of my surroundings.  I have met great people in the school.  Wing Chun has brought me to a whole new level of fitness and self defense ability and I would recommend it to any teenager.  Sifu Och is a great instructor and I look forward to learning more from him in the future.
NECKO D. - WING CHUN - PRIOR; FATHER THAILAND MUAY THAI
Practicing Wing Chun has made my body stronger, more flexible, and my mind sharper.  Wing Chun has made it so that I can multitask. Becuase of this I have gotten better grades through the focus Wing Chun has given me. I have learned a lot of respect for other people and become healthier because of all the exercise and conditioning we do, now I can do 1 handed pushups. Sifu Och's Combat Wing Chun has brought me more confidence in everything I do, whether to defend myself or taking tests in school. Not too many people at school can say they can do what I am now able to do.  I appreciate all my Sifu and parents have done for me with Wing Chun.
KIM M. - WING CHUN - PRIOR; TAEKWONDO, BUSHIDO
Two years ago, I was 15 pounds heavier, quiet, and very unsure of myself in public. For my entire life, my only method of defense was a scowl. In my short time here I have come leaps and bounds, not only in appearance, but in personality as well. Before, I wasn't what you would call “Model Material.” But the combination of hardcore training, realistic defense and healthy eating had literally transformed the way I looked. I have gained muscle and toned up, going from a size 13 to a size 5 in juniors. I now also model on a semi-regular basis. The most exciting thought is that this is a practical life skill that I can use until I am an old, old – very spry – woman.
CATHY M. - WING CHUN - PRIOR; MMA, KARATE, KICKBOXING
Because of Wing Chun I am a completely different person, physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Physically, I am now in the best shape of my life. Before WC I weighed an extra 40lbs & could barely walk, much less run and jump had 2 injured ankles, no energy and was a basketcase of emotion. Now I lost 40lbs, have incredible energy, my emotions are in check, well I'm happy all the time and I have a deeper connection with God & Jesus! Sifu Och wouldn't allow me to hide or pretend. I believe in miracles again.  In my career as a nurse, I have witnessed many miracles, but now it is my turn.  I am the miracle! This school & Sifu Och saved my life!!
JEFF G. - WING CHUN - PRIOR; MILITARY RANGER, VEE JITSU, BOXER
Searching every style within 40 miles from Karate,Taekwondo, Jiu Jitsu & MMA, none taught for reality effective techniques for the street. I was a boxer for 4 years, a Ranger in the U.S. Army, & had taken many martial arts. I was completely capable of holding my own, but was blown away by the effectiveness of Wing Chun (Ving Tsun). The capability to flow in & out of an opponents defense was unlike anything I had ever seen. Very direct, to the point & much more devastating. If I have a street realistic question, to this day not a single one has gone unanswered. Over the course of my Wing Chun Training, Sifu Och has taught me an unequaled quality of self defense.
TOM M. - WING CHUN - PRIOR; NORTHERN PRAYING MANTIS
I have been training in Wing Chun for about 3 years. Not long after the first few classes did I realize the power & devastation of Wing Chun. I have lost 20lbs & gained lean mass. At 47 years of age, I never thought I would feel this good after having gone through back surgery and 2 knee arthroscopies. Sifu Och has shown me that physical limitations are fine, and he has the ability and compassion to work with students on any physical level. I have developed many friendships in class, and they have become my second family. The art of Wing Chun requires determination and hard work. My dedication has helped me tackle obstacles in my personal and professional life.
PHIL M. - WING CHUN - PRIOR; NONE
Sifu Och and Wing Chun has helped me in so many ways from fitness goals to confidence in the face of comfrontations. Wing Chun training is awesome, tough and is what I look forward to at the end of each day. Through hard times I find Wing Chun and Sifu Och to be a Sanctuary for the mind and a training ground for the body. I would highly reccommend Sifu Och's Wing Chun Kung Fu and Chinese Combat Martial Art Training to Anyone interested in real life self defense, protecting there family in a dangerous situtation and getting themselves in amazing shape.
RAPHAEL F. - YEARS WING CHUN - PRIOR; NONE
I have always wanted to practice martial arts, but didn't get a chance to do so. I finally decided start training, in my search I found Sifu Och and Wing Chun which is unlike anything I found. Wing Chun looked so effective and devastating, yet simple, that I immediately fell in love with it. Since I started training, my endurance has increased and so has my flexibility. My self confidence has increased as well; knowing that I can defend myself and others really shows in your personality. Sifu Och teaches in a fun, interactive way that it is never monotonous. I would definitely encourage anybody to train in Wing Chun and even better, train under Sifu Och.
BILL M. - 1 YEAR WING CHUN - PRIOR TRIAL; KARATE, TAEKWONDO, KUNG FU
I was at first skeptical about Wing Chun Kung Fu. I spent some time trying out various martial arts, though never for more than six months. From Karate, Tae Kwon Do, even some Kung Fu. Wing Chun made a lot of fantastic claims, and I didn’t see how they could all be true. Other martial arts had disappointed me. They were unable to take a real hold on me. Still I maintained an interest in martial disciplines. I am pleased to say that Wing Chun has far surpassed my expectations on every level. It lives up to the hype. From the techniques to the people I have met, have changed my life for the better. I would highly suggest Sifu Och's Wing Chun to any fellow skeptic.
JANE B. - WING CHUN - PRIOR; NONE
I came to Wing Chun because I wanted to get in shape but that wouldn’t bore me to tears like the gym did. At 33, I was sorely out of shape, at first It was intimidating because I had never done martial arts but the students really made me feel welcome and before long I was sweating and having the time of my life. I don’t think I have ever worked as hard or sweated as much as I did in that first class but I loved every minute of it.  After the first class I was hooked and after a year I am still in love with Wing Chun. I feel confident to walk down the street alone as a young woman without fear. I have found a new confidence that I did not have before, plus I've lost 30lbs.
GARRETT B. - WING CHUN - PRIOR; 8 YEARS INTENSE BOXING
Honestly, I had no idea what I was getting into when I joined.  The training is VERY rigorous, but well worth it! Very well planned & organized getting you in the best shape of your life.  Before I began I was 225+lbs & thought I was in shape. In 7 months, I shed 30+ pounds, two waist sizes and my energy level soared. Sifu Och pushes you beyond your max potential. We test & perfect our techniques during sparring, which is my personal favorite.  It's one thing to know Wing Chun, However, it is totally different to use the same Wing Chun techniques in a real-life resisting sparring sessions. Where practice meets application. Come down, You won’t regret it.
- PRIOR; GYM TRAINING & WEIGHT LIFTING
After taking my first class I was hooked, the students there treated me like family and once I spoke with Sifu Och about my goals to attain more discipline, lose weight and get the energy I always wanted but never had. That first day he presented me with a plan and a set of goals to achieve as well as a "way of eating" plan, not a fad diet. After just two weeks of going twice a week and following this new plan of training and eating I LOST 20 LBS in the first two weeks, I also had more energy and was really attaining my goals.
- PRIOR; STATE WRESTLING
I love Wing Chun, my only wish is that I could come more but being there when I can I have seen great results in my personal life as well as my family relationship with my son. Wing Chun is something extremely practical and fun. The workouts are great and the Instructor is top notch. I highly reccommend Sifu Och's Wing Chun Kung Fu to anyone interested in a no nonsense self defense system that will get you in great shape at the same time.
- PRIOR; STATE WRESTLING
Having to have used what is taught in class is the biggest proof anyone can get, I recently had to do just that. A guy from my school came up and out of no where tried to knock me out, with one movement I not only block his hand but redirected him into the wall pinning him and his body against it while locking his arm in a break maneuver. I informed him that I wasn't sure why he was attacking me but that if he did it again I would "actually" have to hurt him. He agreed and ran away from the situation, I know Wing Chun works because I have had to use it.
DON M. - WING CHUN - PRIOR; STUDY IN JAPAN - KARATE, JUDO
My name is Don M.  I have been involved in the martial arts the majority of my life.  I began with judo in the mid-1950's and started with karate in 1956.  In 1961-1964, I trained in Shotokan Karate in Japan obtaining the rank of nidan, 2nd degree black belt, I presently hold the 7th degree in this style of karate.  I have trained in jiu-jitsu, arnis, southern style praying mantis, kung-fu and am proud to be presently studying Wing Chun under Sifu Och.  This is a fascitating form of self defense that focuses on center line protection. Sifu Och's approach to fighting is Real, bottom line. I look forward to the daily training because I learn new techniques with each session.
ZACHARY - KIDS KUNG FU - PRIOR; NONE
From the beginning we noticed a difference in our son, we have seen him come alive in discipline and in confidence. We truly enjoy Sifu Och's Wing Chun Kids Classes and would reccommend them to anyone interested in building there childs confidence, discipline and there self protection.
DYANN Q. & son SETH Q.- KIDS KUNG FU - PRIOR; NONE
In the few short months that he has been attending, we have seen an increase in his self-discipline and responsiblility, but even more rewarding than that, his confidence level has soared! He is now starting Middle School and as parents, we feel that he is better prepared to be a happy, confident, and successful student. Thank you Sifu Och, and the entire Wing Chun team. Son- I feel that I have gained exceeding confidence and mental strength. I feel better knowing that I have the ability to defend myself and others when necessary. It has affected my life in a completely positive way. I know that I can succeed in anything I do.
JUSTIN C. - WING CHUN KUNG FU - PRIOR; NONE
While I've only been attending the Wing Chun Kung Fu & Martial Art Academy in Lakeland and Orlando under Sifu Och for a short time, I can already see an immediate improvement in my attention to detail and focus. The art itself is amazing but what really stands out for me is SIfu Och's very unique teaching style which encompasses a mixture of Fierceness with happy and friendly undertones. I truly look forward to each class, because in every class I expect to learn something spectacular, its why I travel 2 hours. Thank you all for such a warm welcome!
JOHN G. - WING CHUN - PRIOR; NONE
I am a medical executive who just got back to working out. After much research I came to the conclusion that Wing Chun was the only combat self defense martial art that I wanted my daughter (law enforcement professional) to know. Now my daughter and my son-in-law have started training. Wing Chun has been responsible for me loosing 47lbs and I can honestly say I am in the best shape of my life, and I am now very confident that I could defend myself. Sifu Och is a great motivator and his instruction is to the point. He explains not only the theory but always proves the actual application of the art. Wing Chun is absolutely amazing. Its the Best decision I ever made!
JANE C. - WING CHUN - PRIOR; TAE KWON DO & P90X
When I signed up for Wing Chun with Sifu Och, I never expected that I would value and look forward to my training as much as I do. The benefits of training in Wing Chun are tremendous and were quite obvious after the first 10 minutes of my free trial. I have seen first hand the power of Wing chun when a "skinny whimpy" friend quite efficiently (within seconds) shut down a large aggressor. From that point on, I have been searching for a Wing Chun school that wasn't "watered down". I have been blessed to finally arm myself with this knowledge. Thank you Sifu for how you care for & train your students  It's no wonder your students honor & respect you.
ALEX K. - PRIOR; GOJU RYU, JIU JITSU, MMA & BOXING
I have been training for 18 years now & traveled all over the country participating in many events & trained with many very skilled instructors. My chance meeting with Sifu Och is one of the most inspirational moments in all of my training. It is very rare to come across an instructor that is willing to openly share the concepts, tactics & techniques of their art with a stranger, while maintaining an attitude of humility & respect. Sifu Och's display of obvious skill and virtue were extremely impressive. His alignment, speed, explosiveness & ability to realistically apply techniques ranks among the best in the arts. I can't wait to gain some of the ability I have seen him display.
TYLER E. WING CHUN - PRIOR; SHOTOKAN KARATE BLACK BELT;
I have been training with Sifu Och for almost a year now and I love it. Sifu Och provides a realistic combat martial art that proves devastating in any street situation you could think of. Few schools provide REAL self-defense. Most focus on tournaments & flashy kicks and not the actual purpose of martial arts which is obviously to protect yourself. Wing Chun is a “what if” Martial art so even if a situation doesn’t play out how you want it to be then it’s alright. You learn to recover with deadly combinations that are sure to damage the attacker in the most brutal ways possible. Other schools just don’t match up. One of the best Dojos in our area I welcome you to give it a try.

JACI E. WING CHUN - PRIOR TAE KWON DO;
My son and I went to many schools in Lakeland and nothing seemed to spark much of an interest, until we went to Wing Chun Kung Fu and met with Sifu Och. My son participated in the class and we were both amazed, excited and inspired by all the benefits of Wing Chun. I myself enjoy martial arts but being overweight, out of shape and having lower back issues I sat on the side lines and watched my son. After a few weeks Sifu Och encouraged me to try it out. My brain thought he was crazy, that there was no way I could do this, but I said why not! In two weeks I noticed that I was happier, energized & the pain in my lower back pain is almost gone. I have gone from a size 18 to a 14 and look forward to being a size 8 again. I would encourage anyone to do this!
MIKE A. - WING CHUN - PRIOR; NONE
I've never really been a fighter, most of my life I avoided all fighting and aggression as much as possible. I was a huge skeptic when it came to martial arts. The reason my wife and I joined Wing Chun was for the Awesome Workouts that Sifu Och provides. Slowly we started learning Wing Chun & how great & usefull it can really be. Personally I love the real life threatening situations, the resistance and how you can drop a person trying to harm the ones you love, no games, no fluff. Thank you Sifu for always giving your best and being a great teacher, you are a true friend.
ERIC E. - WING CHUN - PRIOR; PERSONAL TRAINING & INTENSE FITNESS
I truly feel that on the 1st day of training you leave with the ability to defend yourself against a single punch. However, your knowledge continues to progress from that point at a rapid rate. Sifu Och's Training is systematic & practical. Along with the confidence to be able to defend myself and my loved ones. I have improved my weight management, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels. I am estatic to be a student here and think anyone who has the slightest interest should visit and see for themselves!
JOEL - WING CHUN - PRIOR; GOJU RYU KARATE
During a special event My friend (instructor in Goju Ryu, MMA and Boxing) practiced against Sifu Och. Both of us were blown away by the sheer ability of his technique. He gave us a warm welcome & after the event took time to talk with us over dinner, welcoming us to his school to train. We couldn't hold back our excitement. Once at the school the excitement reached an even higher level. The dedication & passion shown through every student was beyond compare. Sifu Och welcomed us as if we were his own. Never have we seen such great hospitality, needless to say we were touched; this is the real deal with real people showing true passion in what they love.
GEORGIA T. - PRIOR; PROFESSION IN SELF RESTRAINT & TAKEDOWNS
I wasn't sure what to expect out of Wing Chun. When I first saw Sifu Och forced to defend himself against a 6 foot 300lb attacker at an event I was blown away by the speed, strength and power in action. I found his use of tactical attack and blocking simultaneously to be extremely effective and excellent for self defense, If ever necessary of course. I love Jiu-Jitsu and Wing Chun! I believe what better martial art to study than one that is proven and rooted in honor, respect and designed by a woman.
JIMMY M. - PRIOR; CHANG QUAN (Northern Long Fist) BAGUA ZHANG (Northern Shaolin)
Chang Quan / Bagua Zhang styles emphasizes fully extended kicks & striking techniques and are considered long range weapon fighting system. The techniques are most memorable for their whirling, running, leaping and acrobatics. Better body structure, Positioning for fight Success, Passion, Respect, Integrity, Discipline and Enlightenment; In my opinion Sifu Och exhibits all of these qualities. With a wisdom and sense of humor beyond his years, personally this out of practice Martial Artist can honestly say that my original Sifu (may he rest in peace) would've been as I am, extremely honored to know Sifu Och.
LISA H. - WING CHUN - PRIOR; SEMI-PROFESSIONAL SWIMMER
Sifu Och's Wing Chun Kung Fu is a place like no other. I find myself looking forward to Monday, actually counting down the hours for the weekend to END, because I want more Wing Chun! I am not your typical martial arts type person, I do not like or cheer on conflict or fighting of any kind. But Kung Fu especially with Sifu Och, is not just about fighting. It is not about seeing who is stronger. This is a place where in 3 short months I have begun to find balance in mind, body & spirit. I have found a new family that holds my hand in tough times & applauds the celebrations.
EVAN M. - WING CHUN - PRIOR; SEMI-PROFESSIONAL SWIMMER
At the beginning of my first class I had no experience. I had no idea what Wing Chun was or had any kind of Martial Art experience. During my first class I had noticed how all the students acted like one big family treating each other with a genuine kindness. Working together and pushing each other, it was everyones desire to make you better. Everyday in a desire to strive to become better and learn how to defend yourself and more importantly make long lasting friendships. Wing Chun is more than a martial art, it teaches self control and respect for oneself and to others.
KEN E. - WING CHUN - PRIOR; NONE
I met Sifu Och two years ago & considered checking out his classes but felt intimidated due to my age (51) & fitness level. In August of 2010 I decided to try the classes & have been coming ever since. Learning Wing Chun Kung Fu has boosted my confidence, increased my fitness & mental abilities. I have also lost weight during this short period. Sifu Och's instruction is outstanding! His passion for teaching and constantly uplifting me to reach my goals is evident in every class and with all levels. I look forward to every class & thank Sifu Och for his help & support.
FRANCOISE E. - WING CHUN KUNG FU - PRIOR; NONE
I joined Wing Chun Kung Fu as a personal challenge to learn something completely new (at age 40) Martial aarts was never a part of my life as a child or teen. From day one I was impressed with the workout and the variety of information to learn. Being out of shape wasn't an issue and I was encouraged to junp in with both individual and group attention that helped me learn right away. Sifu Och was very thorough with what was expected and provided all the necessary materials to get started. I definitely believe GOD led me to the right place.
CHRISTINA M. - WING CHUN KUNG FU - PRIOR; NONE
When I called this school I was looking for a place to build my stamina and a place to lose weight. After speaking to Sifu Och it made me excited to come in and see what Wing Chun was like. After the first day I was hooked. Sifu Och took a ton of time and went over Wing Chun's benefits and why to learning it. After a couple of weeks I feel my stamina increasing. I also want to eat better and train more because I see the difference already. Being here is the best thing I could have done. Everyone welcomes and helps you. Everyone here trains for the same reason, to be safer.
- WING CHUN - PRIOR;
I'm a Trucker and all I can say is that Wing Chun works, when you have to use Wing Chun it is there for you, and as much time as you put in, it gives back. This art is not fancy its extremely practical, I don't want to waste my time doing tournaments or point sparring and I wouldn't look forward to it either. I want something I can use on the road, something proven Wing Chun has been proven to me by having to use it.

TERRY - PRIOR; NAVY, WING CHUN, TAE KWON DO, MI ZONG KUNG FU
Wing Chun Kung Fu has given me the self defense skills that are in the movies, before wing chun I was always able to fight at a distance and hold my own, I could handle any single attacker. I trained in Mi Zong Long Horn Kung Fu, Tae Kwon Do and did my time training in the Navy. Now after discovering Wing Chun I can fight in close quarter combat, (like a bathroom stall or office cubical) and now multiple attackers are not much of a concern. Wing Chun has given me more than I could have ever imagined was possible.
TROY M. - WING CHUN KUNG FU - PRIOR; AIKIDO, BOXING, FOOTBALL COACH
IWing Chun has given me and my family more discipline, confidence and the ability to protect ourselves and others in very REAL LIFE SITUATIONS. We are more and more able to do so with every class. Our Sifu (Sifu Justin Och) and Sihings help to push us and support us as we grow within our Wing Chun Family. Wing Chun is so practical it is perfect for me and our family. Absolutely the Best Martial Art for real self defense!
RUSSELL V. - WING CHUN KUNG FU - PRIOR; AMATEUR BOXING
I've only been practicing Wing Chun for 2 1/2 months, but the knowledge I've learned surpassed my boxing experience. I've gained more confidence now than I have ever had. Sifu Justin Och pushes me to my limit everytime I train, in return I'm more fit and I feel more energetic. Sifu Justin Och's Wing Chun Kung Fu and No-gi Jiujitsu classes are constantly challenging and uplifting, I would tell anyone to come down, you won't regret it!
JESSICA & MARANDA . - WING CHUN KUNG FU - PRIOR; NONE
The kids wanted to join Wing Chun Kung Fu after the 1st class, they have enjoyed learning and have gained alot of discipline and confidence. We are very pleased with how the kids have progressed with the program. The Downtown Wing Chun Kung Fu & Martial Art center is a Great place for kids to learn self defense and get a great workout! Our son actually recieved a "Respect for Authority Award" from the Mayor right here in Lakeland!
KIM T. & FAMILY (DAUGHTERS)- WING CHUN KUNG FU - PRIOR; NONE
My husband specifically asked me to search out the Best Wing Chun Kung Fu school, he didn't want any other martial art in polk county. My husband had trained in Vietnam and is now a leading doctor here in Lakeland. When we found Sifu Och's Wing Chun Kung Fu school in Downtown Lakeland we knew we found the place we had been searching for. This has been one of the best things for our family and we would highly reccommend it for any family seeking a truly protective and realisitc martial art.
SLADE F. - WING CHUN KUNG FU - PRIOR; WRESTLING
I did High School wrestling for a year in hopes of gaining knowledge on ground disputes & grappling. I didn't gain as much as I thought I would. Being a kid in H.S. their are tons of bullies that attack you everyday that know martial arts. I spent most of my time looking for a way to stop these bullies, talking and reasoning doesn't work. I saw Sifu Och's youtube videos and I was at his school in the same week. I loved the first day & everyday since. I used wing chun when they attacked me again, they no longer bother me, I now study in peace. Wing Chun is Amazing!
TERRANCE S. - WING CHUN KUNG FU - PRIOR; STREET FIGHTING
Ever since I started in Wing Chun (Kung Fu & Martial Arts) in Lakeland I've noticed a change with me, both inside and out. I feel good inside, while looking great physically outside. I've gained moer confidence in facing day to day challenges. Wing Chun pushes me to strive to be a better person. I have had no martial arts background before, and I already feel more confident. It also helps me with the line of work where I do constant lifting and running. Wing Chun is amazing.
LEO. - WING CHUN KUNG FU - PRIOR; NONE
I joined Wing Chun Kung Fu as a personal challenge, it has strengthened my body and mind. There has been nothing like it in my life.
WYATT. - WING CHUN KUNG FU - PRIOR; NONE
Our children have never taken to a martial arts class, until they started wing chun. They are really learning great self defense techniques and are getting in great shape at the same time. We couldn't be more pleased.
HARRELL - WING CHUN KUNG FU - PRIOR; NONE
I joined Wing Chun Kung Fu to help our families kids and to reach personal goals, I wanted to improve my physical and mental capabilities. I continue to reach those goals every class. I am not interested in belts but rather the progress I see, for that I thank you Sifu Justin Och for everything!
JACOB C. - WING CHUN KUNG FU - PRIOR; NONE
"The thing that has meant the most to me in Wing Chun is defending myself and making new friends. I love Wing Chun and I think I have improved alot." Jacob (8 years old) As Jacob's mom, I have seen Jacob become very confident in himself over the past 2 years. I have seen him grow in confidence, self-esteem and discipline. Sifu Justin Och has an amazing gift in getting the kids to do their best in class, school and at home. Jacob has certainly grown in character and I am so proud of what he is learning!
TACI T. - PRIOR; PERSONAL TRAINER, REHAB THERAPY
I was looking for for a new experience that could challenge me mentally and physically. I found that challenge in Wing Chun Kung Fu and Sifu Justin Och's center in Downtown Lakeland. I enjoy everything at this center from the workouts to the real techniques. Anyone who chooses this martial art center will not be disappointed!
JOSE De D. H.. - PRIOR; TAE KWON DO, SELF DEFENSE, POLICE TRAINING
I didn't know what I was getting into when I began training in Wing Chun, what I do know is that I felt led and urged to experience it. After 2 months of training here, I can honestly say that I've attained more than just a few techniques and decreased two belt sizes on my waist; I've learned that great things come with great sacrifices and determination. I've gotten P90x-like workouts that quickly shaped by body. I feel very confident about my self-defense capabilities and no longer afraid to take my shirt off. All those benefits by only going to class twice a week for less than two months. Sifu Och's style of teaching real life combat and techniques far surpasses anything I've come in contact with in the past.
TRACY J. - WING CHUN KUNG FU - PRIOR; NO MARTIAL ART EXPERIENCE
Although wing chun is very new to me, actually martial arts in general is new to me, I can honestly 100% say thank you to Sifu Justin Och for inviting me down for a trial class. It has absolutely changed me life!!! In 1 month, to date, I have lost 21 lbs while learning to defense myself and my family, all while having fun. Everyone has welcomed me, motivated, pushed and encouraged me. I'm glad to be part of the Sifu Justin Och Family and the Downtown Lakeland Wing Chun Kung Fu Center!!

We were told to just try one class, we did and we can't imagine not being here.
CRAIG H. - PRIOR; WUSHU KUNG FU, SOUTHERN SHAOLIN, (5) FIVE ANIMAL
Wing Chun Kung Fu is the most practical self defense technique I have ever had the pleasure of studing. It has provided me with confidence, endurance and stamina. Classes are difficult but also very informative. The Sifu (Justin Och) is extremely knowledgeable, I have learned more practical application here (Downtown Lakeland Wing Chun Kung Fu and Martial Art Center) than I have in any of my previous styles. This is the best place for me and my families protection and confidence.
JOHN S. - PRIOR; EXTREME FITNESS
Originally skeptical that Wing Chun or any Martial Arts would be for me, I was converted as soon as I stepped into the gym. I was looking for something that would work me extremely hard, build stamina, but teach me a new skill at the same time. There was a combination of respect, discipline, and a light-hearted spirit. I did not feel awkward, because I did not know the drill- Everyone stepped up and helped. I am tired, I am learning, and most importantly I am having fun.

Sifu Och motivates and pushes you to your best ability. One the first day I was submitted on the ground 3 times by my brother who had only been training for 3 months. As a previous wrestler I was suprised that Wing Chun Kung Fu had no-gi Jiujitsu, I was even more suprised my brother tapped me out with only 3 months training on the ground. This place builds confidence, great stamina & cardio workout. I was sore for a week after my first class. The standup is amazing and they are very open to new ground work and techniques. I've come to learn, so should you.
