Wing Chun is a martial art that originated three centuries ago in China. Its principles and spirit embody China’s warrior mentality and culture. On the other hand, China’s rising political, economic, and technological revolution is worthy of understanding. It is important to decipher China’s Grand Strategy. There are similarities in culture and style between China’s Grand Strategy and Wing Chun. As a result, China’s Grand Strategy can be defined by five key principles. The first principle is the simplicity of a policy of non-intervention in other countries despite having the power to intervene. The second principle is directness of a national cause, which has the purpose of reasserting territorial interests and reversing what has been known as a century of humiliation. The third principle is China’s practicality in technological innovation in evolving from low-quality products to unparalleled cutting-edge technology that translates in all its instruments of national power. The fourth principle is an economy for international business, which has transformed China’s economic system into a resilient economy that has the best performance in the world despite unpredictable circumstances. Finally, the fifth principle is the minimum use of military force, which has the effect of protecting the nation from external aggression and intimidation. Consequently, countries should decode China’s Grand Strategy if they want to counter or adapt it.
