Robert Downey Jr. incorporates Wing Chun into his everyday life—including his films.


The Way Of Martial Arts

The actor credits the Chinese martial art of Wing Chun kung fu, which he started to train about seven years ago, for giving him the strength to overcome his addictions.

    “Wing Chun is all about guarding your center line.Don’t fight force with force; use two hands at the same time; concentrate on your own thing; and after you have that dialed in, effect the balance, look for openings, look for arms to be crossed.”
