Melbourne Sport and Street Wing Chun Kung Fu Academy Welcomes Autistic Students

MELBOURNE, Australia - April 24, 2023 - PRLog -- The Melbourne Sport and Street Wing Chun Kung Fu Academy, founded by Maurice Novoa in 2011, is proud to announce that a group of six young students with autism has recently joined their martial arts training program.

The students practice different movements of Kung Fu using special wooden dummies built specifically for this martial art, as well as leather wall bags filled with rice to practice blows with the fists and elbows. This equipment is provided to ensure that the young people can train safely and effectively.

The Wing Chun Kung Fu style was first practiced by the legendary Bruce Lee in China before he moved to the United States and became a movie star.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) supports the integration of people with disabilities into society by providing professional and financial help to their families. This includes paying for Kung Fu classes for autistic students, like those who attend Maurice's academy.

In addition to teaching autistic students, Maurice also instructs Nicolas a young man with Asperger's, a branch of autism with milder symptoms. This student has been progressing rapidly in his martial arts training because he can also take classes with neurotypical students, unlike the other autistic students who do not yet have the ability to train alone or with others.

Maurice received his Wing Chun Kung Fu master certificate from US-based master Anthony Arnett 10 years ago, and last year he received his certificate from teacher Felix Leong of Adelaide. Both masters have many martial art championship titles.

The academy is committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for all students to learn and grow in their martial arts practice. Wing Chun Kung Fu offers a range of benefits, including improved coordination, concentration, confidence, and physical fitness, and the academy is excited to share these benefits with their autistic students.
