About Us


Sifu Peter Atkin began training Wing Chun in 1994 and Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan in 1995 and after training under several instructors in 1996 he finally met his Wing Chun Sifu and that was Sifu Joe Molnar of Knox Wing Chun. In December of 2004 Sifu Peter Atkin achieved his Wing Chun Gold Sash "Out of all my Wing Chun instructors I always found Sifu Joe Molnar was the real deal in Wing Chun and not only because of his physical skill but his theory was practical yet clever! Sifu Peter Atkin achieved his Red sash when he taught and graded his first Gold Sash student Sifu Matthew Edwards. Next was Dr./Sifu Antony Sutherland, Sifu Steven Elliott, Sifu Kaela Varrasso, and Sifu Michael Barry. Sifu Peter Atkin has also been training with Master Yau Yee Kay in Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan since 1995. Master Kay is an amazing martial artist and has dedicated his life to training martial arts. "It is an honour and a privilege to be a student of his and I am always learning more with him everytime I train with him", says Sifu Peter Atkin

At Eastern, we show you how to deflect rather than block hard or hit block. We attack and defend simultaneously - as Bruce Lee once said " Best defense is a good offense" If you are quite small and you think you can hit the bone of a larger stronger human because you know Wing Chun You may be in for a shock as there are no secrets in martial arts anymore Don't be fooled by buzz words like full intensity or the secret way See the proof of real effective methods If it worked for a woman 300 years ago in China it can work for anyone today in Australia We don't rely on the use of brute force unless we are certain it is effective for the situation. Be smart in fighting not tough is the Wing Chun Way Being tough is discipline, patience, and most important constant practice These are the principles you need to be the best you can be regardless if you are a fighter or a lover At Eastern we take our time to show you the basic forms, stances, footwork, defensive/offensive techniques,  sticking arm drills Repetition and slowing it down is the best just as the Sil Lim Tao form shows us Repetition is needed to develop muscle memory but if you practice incorrectly you will make the mistake the primary habit or response The shortest path is always to take your time when learning a skill, this ensures correct technique! So when you begin you will not be submitted, knocked out, or thrown so injury is minimised and you will progress As you progress the intensity will increase but the focus is always on control at eastern.
