IWKA Kung Fu Birmingham UK plays such an important role in helping you to increase your confidence, raise your self esteem, reduce stress, strengthen your immune system, improve your fitness and to learn self defence skills.
We’re looking for people like YOU, who care about their health and well-being and want to be the best that they can be.
The IWKA Road to Black Belt is the journey of a student from 1st - 12th level (Black Belt). The main focus is on realistic self-defence in all five ranges, as well as learning the basic forms, Snake Engine striking methods and also theories of the system.
Student level 1- 8 are mainly external. Level 9-12 is an introduction into the internals through the IWKA Song Form exercises.
The Bridge to Mastery is the journey from Black Belt all the way through the different Black Belt levels until finally reaching 10th Grandmaster Level.
The student is taken deeper into the internals through the learning of the IWKA 1700’s Sil Lim Tau, the 1848 Yik Kam Kuen Kuit, the Six Core Elements and also the IWKA Song Form. Another topic of study will be from the sister art Weng Chun, in the form of Tang Yik and Lo Family linages, as well as training in Hua, Na and Fa skills.
The Master levels 5-8 are purely about internal Wing Tjun. Here you will develop a deeper understanding and the ability to apply Hua (Yielding), Na (locks) and Fa (Issuing) skills, the 8 energies and also the Six Core Elements.
The Grandmaster levels 9-10 are the domain of the spiritual path and Wing Tjun Chan Buddhistic roots.
The IWKA Road to Black Belt and Bridge to Mastery are a clear roadmap for the student to follow and the red line throughout the IWKA Wing Tjun system of Sifu Sergio Pascal Iadarola.

The IWKA Kung Fu family is part of the tradition which dates back thousands of years.
The unique IWKA Wing Tjun and IWKA Taiji systems are the result of over 3 decades of intense research in China and South Asia. Diverse linages have been explored by world renowned Sifu Sergio Pascal Iadarola to form the curriculum of these two systems; this has enabled Sifu Sergio’s work to help preserve an authentic piece of Chinese culture.
Sifu Sergio has dedicated his life to the preservation of the most important Wing Tjun and Taiji knowledge in existence and spreads the knowledge he acquired from his Sifu’s. Through the IWKA association, you can be part of mastering your body, mind and energy to a whole new level. This is the main aim of our state of the art programs.
Every new journey begins with a first step. If you have made that step, CONGRATULATIONS; your Sifu and Shihing will be there to support you in achieving your goals.
Always remember, a student wearing a Black shirt is a student who once wore a White shirt and never gave up.
