When I see people try to perform a pre arranged chi sau sequence/ section on someone, it tells me they've missed the point.
You wouldn't do that...
No, thou speakest the truth.
The goal of the sections is not to get good at doing the section.The goal is to learn what the sections are teaching...
I didn't say I don't have time.
That's not my point.
I strength train and encourage my students to do likewise.
But not so you can outmuscle your opponent.
Exactly. We're not trying to pit our strength against his strength. If martial arts are simply about the person who's bigger and stronger then why...
Playing devil's advocate here...since English is his 3rd language perhaps he was referring to brute strength more so than power?
I like the Alan Orr stuff but honestly I don't watch much of it.
I don't know if it's the accent or what but he just seems to ramble on and on
No no, not does WC fight trains, I believe the question is. 'does WC fight on trains'.
Emin may have said it at one time, but I specifically remember hearing it from Simon Mayer.
One of the WT guys I've had the opportunity to train with told me instead of just an onslaught of continuous punching, it's better to throw them...
Make no mistakes, I'm weird alright.
Yes of course I can , but that's not the way it should be trained.
As I and a couple of others have mentioned, the goal of WC is to breathe...
Because WT/WC very often deals with an opponent by blitzing in with numerous attacks, even as many as several attacks per second, there is no way...
You reminded me of something that happened with Leung Ting many years ago.
He was in Louisville with Emin teaching a two day seminar. We all went...
Wing Tsun : keep your friends close and your enemies closer
Yes, we refer to it as chi gerk (sticking leg).
I've heard that not all Yip Man lineages do this training though.
Lat sau means "free hand", not that I speak Cantonese but my Si-Fu does.
So it's not so much a series of drills as it is concepts of what to do...
You're right . If you're not able to bridge the distance and get in close where you can wreak havoc on your opponent, or worse, get knocked out...
Actually I check a quite a bit, but WC Forum has been deader than a doornail
Nice to know I've been missed, a welcome back cake would have been nice.
Just like there are different intensities of sparring, chi sau is done at different intensities as well...at least it should be.
I think this...
Since you don't need the exactness of a wooden dummy to practice the form on maybe something like this would do the trick?
Yeah but let's see if they can understand cricket.
Now that sounds like an interesting thread... just sayin
I don't know, but it's sounding more and more to me like you've outgrown this organization thing.
I'm sure everything's fine. If there's one thing I think we can all agree on is that the Wing Chun community is a reasonable and forgiving group....
Either way I think you and I would come out ok.
. I don't think there's an Albany Kentucky but I'll check
