According to legend, Wing Chun (詠春) was a style of Chinese martial arts technique designed by the Shaolin monks for the smaller stature of women fighters. Martial arts historian please confirm.

The fighting style is now adopted by fighters with small stature regardless of gender. The technique emphasizes in close-body combat which deliberately "stick" to the bigger opponent in such a way that opponent's long reach of arms, legs or weapons becomes a liability instead of an advantage over a smaller person.

Bruce Lee trained in Wing Chun and later incorporated some of its moves and philosophy into the Jeet Kun Do style he later personally developed.
