    Wing Chun at a job interview

    I didn't get the job :( They said they thought the wing chun presentation was very interesting and they could tell I was passionate about it but I was 'telling' them rather than convincing them. Also the role involves some sales and they thought I wasn't strong enough in that regards. Oh...

    Honestly, I was hoping to avoid SLT. I know how important it is but think it's boring to outsiders.

    SIU LIM TAO - question about Wu-sau and Fook-Sau

    He's not that much more senior than me but he's been training a while longer. It might be that he was nervous because he did it in front of the class. I'll have to ask my sifu. It might be the case though because he's said a few times that it should develop our forearms.

    SIU LIM TAO - question about Wu-sau and Fook-Sau

    Your english is fine! When you say explode, should I be contracting my hand when I change from fuk sao to wu sao? A very quick contraction like you see in the second section of the form?

    SIU LIM TAO - question about Wu-sau and Fook-Sau

    Okay got it! The reason I asked is because I've seen a classmate (someone who generally knows his stuff) doing the form and when drawing back the wu sao, his arm was shaking slightly and I think I saw his lat muscles contracting. I guess I should have done the social thing and asked my Sifu.

    SIU LIM TAO - question about Wu-sau and Fook-Sau

    Hey guys, I just wondered about the wu sao again. Should I feel anything in my lat muscles when I draw it back?
