Wing Tsun (alternatively 詠春, "chant spring") is a branch of Wing Chun, led by Leung Ting.
The particular phonetic spelling of 詠春 as Wing Tsun was picked by the branch founder Leung Ting to differentiate his branch from the others. WingTsun (without a space) is the trademarked form used by the International WingTsun Association (IWTA), not the name of the style.
