Wing Chun improves you; Wing Chun improves your life.

The day I started to make positive changes in my life was the day I first walked through the doors of Reading Academy.

Since then, 8 years have passed, and I can honestly say that still find the training as fulfilling and fascinating now, as when I started.

The personal development benefits of training at such an establishment as Reading Academy are easily overlooked when one thinks only of fighting or self defence; the systems of Wing Chun and Kali both have much more to them once you scratch the surface.

Sifu Loukas and his team have retained and progressed their skills through personal commitment and diligent training - a very rare find indeed!

Wing Chun

Master Loukas' experience in fighting as such in the conjunction with his character and knowledge brings Wing Chun in a real sense – a lot of sweat, drills; thousands of repetitions; examination of techniques not only by the intellect but by dormant faculties. There are awakened by various drills and methods, from those very raw, up to those so subtle, that fine touch on skin is enough to determine, how to react.
But Loukas' school has been passing the principles profoundly deeper.
I developed a new cognitive realisation and body health through workouts. My personality is changing due to emptying the brain full of preconceptions, and deluded constructions of intellect. Self-discipline, humility, acceptance, and strong will are shaping too. The path is through the dark forest of optical illusions, misunderstandings, frustration and fears, but I know I have my Master and friends here, which can help me to achieve the goal – to eat fruits from the tree, planted a long time ago.

This is so much more!

I joined looking to join a martial arts club to get fit. This is so much more! I’ve now become part of a family of fighters with a great Teacher who have different fighting backgrounds. This has made learning what works easier as we are able to test each other thoroughly. I have loved every minute, continue to learn and would suggest to anyone looking to improve their own skills and confidence to get involved. Thank you Loukas and the guys at the Academy.

No nonsense, just progression to match your commitment

I've been training here for more than two decades in both Wing Chun and Kali. We have a great atmosphere and enthusiastic students, genuinely nice human beings. There's great passion and good skills both of which we love sharing with others.

We want everyone to progress, be the best version of themselves and have a little fun along the way. Everything we do, classes, seminars, international training camps (and much more) is designed with that purpose in mind.

I could talk about lineage and so on but really, you'd need to come see what we do with your own eyes as that's the ultimate proof.
