[prMac.com] New York, New York. Wing Chun Illustrated; the world's only magazine dedicated to the art of Wing Chun regardless of lineage or style, announced it is celebrating this year's Annual International Wing Chun Day by offering 52% OFF on their one-year subscription, exclusively through The #1 global newsstand, Magzter from the 9th to the 31st of March 2015.
The Wing Chun Martial Arts specialist publication, Wing Chun Illustrated signed up with the world's largest and fastest growing global digital cross-platform newsstand and magazine & bookstore; Magzter, for its digital distribution and has received an exceptional response from readers around the world including those who have switched over from other platforms.
Celebrating this day with Magzter will help continue its mission of spreading awareness on Wing Chun to over 25 million readers on Magzter.
"The International Wing Chun Day was founded in 2010 as a way to further the art of Wing Chun across the world," said Eric Liller, Editor & Publisher of Wing Chun Illustrated. "The day is held each year on the 3rd Saturday in March and Wing Chun schools use the day as a way of promoting the art and their classes. Celebrations include demonstrations, free events and seminars offered by schools and instructors across the world."
Wing Chun is the world's most popular form of Southern Kung Fu and is probably best known as being the core of Bruce Lee's personal martial arts approach Jeet Kune Do. Wing Chun has gained additional exposure with the very successful 'Ip Man' movies starring Donnie Yen and there is an estimated 2-3 million Wing Chun practitioners worldwide.
"Being the world's only magazine dedicated to Wing Chun, we clearly want to celebrate this day with our global Wing Chun brothers and sisters. So, till the end of March, I have decided to offer a one-year subscription for just $9.99," added Eric Liller. "Magzter has been a very solid partner and supporter of Wing Chun Illustrated from Day 1, and I'm confident that they will help us to conquer new readers globally. Partnering with Magzter has definitely been one of the best decisions I have made during my 16 years in magazine publishing."
"For many months, I had grown increasingly frustrated with our previous digital distributor but thankfully a fellow publisher made me aware of Magzter. From my first exploratory inquiry, Magzter has been extraordinarily accessible, candid, professional, and flexible. I was truly impressed with how quickly they made our large back issue catalogue available and on top of that created several branded apps - all for free! WOW! The customer service is simply second to none! The staff is extremely friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. It's quite refreshing to deal with people who are both competent and amiable. To partner with Magzter has definitely been one of the best decisions I have made during my 16 years in magazine publishing! I look forward to have Magzter in our corner for many years to come." - Eric Liller - Publisher & Editor, Wing Chun Illustrated.
"I would like to congratulate Wing Chun Illustrated for celebrating the spectacular sport of Wing Chun martial arts with this offer exclusively for the global readers on Magzter. As a fan of martial arts, Bruce Lee and the Ip Man movies I am happy to see WCI giving such a special offer to Magzter's global readers, I am certain that this move will be welcomed by our users and will do a great deal towards furthering Wing Chun around the world." - Girish Ramdas, CEO, Magzter Inc.
"As a person who thoroughly enjoys keeping fit, I also look out for newer sports and arts to stay enthused about fitness. And this is how Wing Chun Illustrated caught my interest. This magazine is an exceptional demonstration of Wing Chun martial arts and offers vast information on it; enough and more to have Magzter's 25 million global users hooked. I'd like to congratulate Wing Chun on its International Wing Chun Day celebrations and here's wishing the team all the success." - Vijay Radhakrishnan, President, Magzter Inc.
