    Chum Kil Video

    Re. OP: My opinion (of which I have loads not all of them valid so make of this what you will) that was just aweful. No apparent connection between the various parts of his body when turning in what was a pretty aweful stance to start with. Love n peas Uke

    Is Wing Chun taught backwards?

    Great posts so far thanks y'all. It is my contention that the Dragon pole was brought in as another training tool for the knives. Although I get where you're (geezer) comming from with the knives dont stick thing. I would disagree when it comes to fighting against something like the Dragon...

    Inspiration from outside your WC...

    Nice vid Mook. Nowadays I would say Wing Chun is more of an inluence from outside for me.

    Is Wing Chun taught backwards?

    During my normal morning trawl through martial arts forums (in a vain attempt to put off starting work) I came across a post that suggested that Wing Chun was initially a weapons based system and developed backwards to an empty hand system. This is a great idea and in some ways makes sense to...

    Seconded. I've stopped watching them as I dont see the point if there is no dialogue about them. We could of course talk amoungst ourselves.......

    The Bast@&D Son of WING CHUN has returned...

    At the end of each section I do a double jut then a double tok sau, as opposed to the stroking movement you do. Could you explain your reasons for doing it the way you do?

    Turning revisted...comments pls

    So recently I was talking to a guy from a different WC school to the one I attended and the subject of turning reared its ugly head. I'll summarise the conversation... Him : We dont turn on the heels because that was something that was taught to westerners due to them being too fat to turn on...

    question about WC from a non-practitioner

    In a way yes and in a way no. It more about training reflax to particular contact IMO. Whilst blending and yeilding are a part of this so is the use of power. Chi sau is the game of Wing Chun its an environment where attributes, tactics and techiniques can be practised and experimented with...

    'Empty' wooden dummy form

    Mo Jong - I think it lierally means 'no jong'. Anyhoo yes we used to train it. Personally I think the dummy form can be taught around the time students are introduced to Chum Kiu. It (besides SLT) remains my favourite form from WC.

    Bart Cham Dao Swordmanship

    I think there are alot of atributes that can be gained from the form/ Not sure about comparisons and all that, but Niten Ichi-ryū sprang to mind when reading your post, as a Japanese style that incorporates two swords. Also there are various Wudang double sabre forms and the like...

    Why are escrima and wing chun often paired together?

    He was just breaking it down Geezer. Most blocks/deflections come with a control or an attack. Simulatneous block and attack of a weapon weilding arms is a basic premise in FMAs in general. I think the difference in this case is the target of the attack. With WC the focus is the centre line...
