The Progressive Wing Chun Milton Keynes Logo is broken down as follows
- The plum blossom is in the background which symbolises Wing Chun's legendary founder, Ng Mui.
- The triangle represents Wing Chun's structural integrity. Wing Chun uses triangulation throughout the system to deflect force using correct bone alignment and body structure.
- Yin & Yang
Yin is characterized as slow, soft, yielding, diffuse, cold, wet, and passive; and is associated with water, earth, the moon, femininity and night time, dark.
Yang, by contrast, is fast, hard, solid, focused, hot, dry, and aggressive; and is associated with fire, sky, the sun, masculinity and daytime, light.
In Wing Chun the Yin Yang represents the concept of relaxation i.e. if ones opponent is hard you must remain soft, if they pull, you push, if they use aggression, you remain passive etc. You do not fight your opponent you "borrow their energy" to defeat them.
- The circle that encompasses the logo represents the journey that a practitioner must take to become proficient in the of Wing Chun; this means that the practitioner must go almost full circle both mentally and physically to fully understand the art, however the reason why the circle is incomplete is due to the fact that you will never ever stop learning, no matter how long you have been practising and this is mainly because everyone fights differently.
