Does anyone recognize this dummy form?
How about this knife form?
Maybe this one is easier to spot?
Ha, that's cool! I might steal this idea from you if you don't mind
Very cool. If I had a form like that, I'd definitely teach folks those variations as they progressed.
Pretty good for only 3 weekends of training
I thought it was 3 days.
Is this the William Cheung version of Chum Kiu, done solo on dummy & with knives? Or is this your own innovation? Either way I like the utilitarian concept.
Yes. This is the Traditional Wing Chun Chum Kiu.
Do I get a prize now? Maybe an all expenses paid vacation to someplace exotic, like Jersey? Lol!
I really like the utilitarian concept. I have a small set of San Sik called Lin Wan Kou Da that follows the same concept. Empty hand, pole & knives, no variation in movement & rich in concept. Throws, locks, chokes strikes & weapons. All basic movement but diverse in application & theory. It was what I taught (altered to suit CQC tactics and weapons) to various infantry & special operation units when I was a contractor for the Army.
If this was indeed something William Cheung created, it took a great deal of knowledge & insight to create to make cohesive. Thanks for sharing.
CK with knives?
Squarest peg, roundest hole.
Me? I'm too distracted by the weapons in the background. Cool. Hema stuff ...and the Kabong. Don't see too many of them used these days.
Y'all know about the Kabong, right? Here is a picture showing the usage of "El Kabong":
One of my favorite cartoons growing up.
Like some people on the forum.
Other KF styles that employ butterfly swords often adapt their empty hand forms to the weapons.
I played around with adapting the sword form to short sticks and empty hands for a while. And people say there are no hammerfists in Wing Chun! Swords on the dummy as well.
I can almost hear LFJ choking on his beer from here.
Yup, a very popular form of practice in the various Hung Kuen styles, adapting empty hand to weapon. After all, the weapon is just an extension of the hand.
Yeah. Kind of ironic, isn't it? You claim that your version of YMVT was derived entirely from the weapons. Yet you can't do your Chum Kiu form with the knives. Go figure!!!!
It's not a dance routine.
Like Aikido people on the Wing Chun forum.
Ah, because there's nothing similar between different arts! I get it...you don't use the same physics or species of human we do. Good point.
