    Palm up block

    So now, what part of the body are you talking is 1 fist distance away from the body? The elbow? The hand? I imagine the elbow, but correct me if I'm thinking wrong. In my family's tradition, the Taan Sau is done with the palm facing the face, as if you're looking into a mirror, and it is not a...

    Benny Meng - WC, Sparring and Competition

    Interesting topic. I admit that I did not read every post fully, I don't have alot of time to do so at the moment. I am also probably a bit biased here,as I am a direct student of Sifu Meng. I will do my best to not take sides, though it seems that everything here is very neutral and productive...

    Bottom Two Knuckles?

    I agree with ed-swfck and others on this, but would like to expand a bit. Using the bottom three knuckles for any punch is both a safety feature for the striker, and a structural improvement for the punch. Jab, cross, hook, upprcut and vertical punches all make use of this structure. As Ed...

    Doing Si Lum Tao fast

    I'm echoing ed-swckf's thoughts a bit. If Wing Chun is designed to allow for simultaneous offense and defense in the trapping range, why do attacks need to be faster than blocks. This kind of mind set seems to be, well, odd. This makes several assumptions about you and your attacker. Fisrt is...

    There is no style of Wing Chun

    This is an interesting thread. I'm sorry I can't be on here more regularly for the gems like this one. It is nice to see others who are not confining themselves by thinking of this style and that style. From my experience in Wing Chun, it is an enhancing technology, making what you already have...

    Crisis in America, can we help as martial artists?

    Thanks to everyone for their input. I offer my apologies for the multiple posts as well. Sorry I haven't been on in a while to be more active in the discussion, this month has been most busy for me with lots of travel and school.

    Just how many style of wing chun are there???

    I echo Danny T's observations. This is like asking how many styles of Karate are there. One for every practitioner of the art is the correct answer. How many systems are there is a more productive question. Just as every painter who is an "impressionist" will do it his/her own way, so will every...

    help

    Speedy, I highly doubt you'll ever see HFY on video. GM Gee is very adamant that it shall never be recorded on video, due to the culture ot the system. To see it first hand, you'd have to visit a school that teaches it.

    Does Wing Chun "teach" a philosophy

    How about Balance. Wing Chin employs many stances that are very well balanced, from the horse to the front stance, the weight is almost always kept in a 50/50 distrubution, keeping the practitioner well balanced. Take this into life and lead a well balanced life, not going too extreme about...
