Wing Chun Academy Associations - Sweden Stockholm (WCAA-Sweden)

Wing Chun Academy Associations - Sweden (WCAA-Sweden) is founded in December 2005 by Peter Yeung as a Wing Chun KungFu (martial art) school on an academy level for Wing Chun associations, this is the meaning of the name Wing Chun Academy Associations. Academy's level of school is meaning it is providing an academic level of pedagogical education of Wing Chun as art than acts as a training provider, one of the goals is to provide higher education of the Wing Chun martial art and how to apply the art in a situation.

Our Web site service was started in August 2006. Wing Chun Academy Associations - Sweden (WCAA-Sweden) is a non-profit Academy with a business model following the Swedish "Hobby Verksamhet" According to Swedish tax authority "Skatteverket" SKV 344. In WCAA-Sweden's fee is to cover our hidden cost for bringing the original Wing Chun KungFu to direct from HongKong (Ip Chun Wing Chun lineage) since WCAA-Sweden don't take any subsidy from the Swedish local government or other organizations. WCAA-Sweden is doing further Wing Chun development of martial art, and wellness, etc.

Within the WCAA-Sweden hobby business concept needs also own Java software development & operations (DevOps) of WCAA-Sweden Mobile/Web IT application tool i.e. for education tool and automatic information/business processing in order to achieve distance learning of the Wing Chun theory with team collaboration, privacy data handling for compliance with IT security, etc. This requires fully own developed and hosted IT solutions for complying with the WCAA-Sweden concept and the EU GDPR regulation - 2016/679 regarding privacy data protection. This results in high costs for IT operation, IT solutions, and development, WCAA-Sweden is therefore also applying DevOps.

Wing Chun Academy Association Sweden (WCAA-Sweden) is acting as a supplier to organizations/associations and individuals with Wing Chun services, education framework under the WCAA-Sweden brand, this means that WCAA-Sweden is financially separated without any legal responsibility towards sub-organizations, see our agreement. This includes complete services offerings directly to members/students of the association Wing Chun Academy IF Stockholm (WAIS) or to other academies/association. Today WCAA has terminated the association relation with WAIS.

WCAA-Sweden's aim is to provide high-quality and deep Wing Chun learning for a budget price so that students without a high budget can learn a deeper level of Wing Chun to become an instructor or teachers. Therefore the WCAA-Sweden is trying to achieve a small group of motivated students since the business goals are for spreading deeper Wing Chun rather than aim for profit. Therefore WCAA limits the number of students in this school by putting higher requirements on the candidates that apply for becoming a student.

Since is WCAA-Sweden is a non-profit hobby business with Evangelical Christian Values (ECV). Therefore part of the Wing Chun Academy Associations Sweden hobby business for is donating revenues especially Christian organizations i.e. Salvation Army ( Frälsningsarmen ) to support their aid work and also donate/support Nordic Chinese Christian Church (NCCC) activates (including web/IT hosting for NCCC Stockholm ).

Wing Chun Academy IF Stockholm (WAIS) - opt out 2020

Below is some historical information of the past  WAIS

Wing Chun Academy IF Stockholm (WAIS) is founded in August 2009 by Peter Yeung, Daniel Gomez, and Johan Andersson.

But from 2020-01-20 WAIS was closed as a registered association but will still continue to be a discussion forum for WCAA students.
WAIS was an non-profit association (ideell förening) registered at Svenska Budo & Kampsportsförbundet (SB&K) a federation under Riksidrottsförbundet (RF), this means that WAIS is member of the sub-federation Swedish Kung Fu and Wushu Federation
WAIS's objective was to be a student association forum for Wing Chun training and education decisions using E-democracy in cooperation with Wing Chun Academy Association - Sweden without own business (verksamhet). WAIS has therefore no financial or economics and does not either apply for any financial contribution (bidrag). 
WAIS fee to Svenska Budo & Kampsportsförbundet (SB&K) was paid by WCAA-Sweden as part of WCAA-Sweden student service offering. 

WAIS organisation registrations


Members of WAIS had accident insured via SB&K for training accidents. More information at http://www.budokampsport.se/försäkring 
WAIS have not any economy as it own, so WCAA-Sweden is, therefore, acting as service supplier with the complete operation for WAIS i.e. as Wing Chun academy association supplier.

Now all WCAA students train Wing Chun under own responsibility and with their own insurances.
