Specialized in a unique self defense concept using the most efficient and logic techniques, it has been developed with great care to be in line with the criminal law.
Wing Flow System evolves from a logic and easy street defense concept into the more refined art of combat: from a simplified ‘street defence system’ with barely four counter techniques to the more complete and brutally efficient no ruled ‘art of combat’ using the whole body to defend and attack.
Sifu Mark Stas has been discovered by some instructors of the French special forces, who were astonished, not only by his mastery but also of the brutally efficiency of his self defense system, which at the same time breaths simplicity in action.
Mr. Mark Stas est l’une des personnes les plus impressionnante que j’ai pu voir depuis 20 ans que je me forme aux techniques de self défense…La maîtrise technique et physique de Mark STAS est l’une des plus impressionnante que j’ai pu observer. Son système est particulièrement adapté aux réalités de la self défense…Le plus important dans mon cas, est que les techniques enseignées répondent parfaitement aux réalités de mon métier, en prenant en compte les contraintes de mon équipement et mon cadre légal de travail.

In Europe there are independent Wing Flow instructors who received the permission to teach his martial art. They are all part of the “World Wing Flow System Association”.
‘Wing Flow’ could be explained by a start of new horizons (Wing), where the practitioner will learn to flow in a precise action. Through training the body and mind will get in a flow state of mind.
Wing Flow System belongs to the category of martial art where the longevity of practice is stressed: quality over quantity.
With strong self defense skills learned in the core levels, the practitioner evolves into the “art” of combat: one need first to understand that no human masterpiece has ever been created without great labor. There is always room for improvement: art is never ending.
Punching, kicking, elbowing, throwing, tactics and honing defensive skills, the art of combat in Wing Flow System has it all. The economy of motion, a perfect combination of visual and sensitivity reflexes put into innovative training methods makes this brand new concept loved by martial arts instructors, champions and practitioners all over the world. Although Wing Flow is not only very strong in the close quarter combat, we could say that especially the innovative training methods together with a unique vision of martial arts makes Wing Flow System unique.

Stages of Mastery

Basic Core foundation

Advanced Core foundation
The practitioner who gained skills through many years of dedicated and hard training becomes an Expert in Wing Flow System.
Is the practitioner who after being an Expert in Wing Flow System, is fully qualified, skilled and experienced as a Master in Wing Flow System.
The Flow Level or the ‘Virtuoso’ in Wing Flow System, represents the perfect example of this martial arts system. Although there is a theory behind our art, the Wing Flow Virtuoso will express his martial knowledge in combination with his personality and character, his preferences.
Although the practitioner followed the art of Wing Flow, the path of this system will guide the practitioner towards his own expression without the rigidity of what to do and when. Although fully developped in skills, the specialisation will be of more importance.
The highest level in Wing Flow System will not be characterised by forced answers, but mere by flowing into action with body and mind. The gesture will be guided by sensation and intuition.
Agressivity will be replaced by focussed determination when necessary and release of power will be controlled at master level.
