    Sparring with Wing Chun

    Sparring has it's use as long as both parties know what each one is trying to achieve. You pad up and hit full force so that you can work on timing, quicker speed and positioning. However the thing to remember is to not have it end up being an all out brawl fest. That defeats the purpose of...

    WHow they view WC on other forums....

    I gave up in words in telling people that Ving Tsun work. I find out that once they are prejudice in this art either because they don't understand it, or they have tried it but just didn't "get it" or they followed a not so competent Wing Chun Teacher, they will always think that Ving Tsun...

    What keeps you going?

    What keeps me going is that everytime I go, I can always find something new or i find something even more interesting. I make my movements smaller, more accurate and that is already something very interesting. And when I help teach, it is always a great feeling to help someone learn this art...

    Thank you. I didn't even bother to reply that because no matter what, it will be an un-constructive response.

    What is considered Ving Tsun (Wing Chun/ etc)

    Haha... Everyone always hopes it looks like the movies. I guess If we all fought in slow motion, we can make it look like the movies. =P

    What is considered Ving Tsun (Wing Chun/ etc)

    Hunt1- Thank you for your feedback. Perhaps it's different interpretation of of Wing Chun. I am under the Wong Shun Leung Method. Mind I ask you which lineage you are under. I have heard of other mentioning that in their interpretation of Wing Chun was a standing grappling, but I wasn't sure...

    HK Ving Tsun Full Contact Competition

    Thank you for your comments. yes, Vidoes does help us a lot in reviewing what we could have done better and notice the little bad habits that we miss out. I enjoy this type of competition as it helps to put the art into some levels of pressure while maintaining a friendly atmosphere. At the...

    What is considered Ving Tsun (Wing Chun/ etc)

    Going up the center obviously did not end the fight as fast as I had hoped. During the first 20 seconds of the fight i had punches that some were connecting and some weren't. I then realized that I was aiming towards the face area but actually punching a bit above. When we reset, I tried to...

    What is considered Ving Tsun (Wing Chun/ etc)

    As some of you are aware, I posted earlier 2 vidoes of my recent Full Contact Ving Tsun Competition. Although my opponent was not really doing Ving Tsun (according to me that is), nevertheless since I didn't know him and I had no idea of his martial arts background, thus I fought the way I...

    HK Ving Tsun Full Contact Competition

    Maybe, but because he was wild swinging a lot of the times, I couldn't really "feel" what he was doing. I was more focused on what i want to do and how I was to go about it. Also being this was my first ever full contact match, all i wanted to do was to finish it fast and in one piece. Thus i...

    HK Ving Tsun Full Contact Competition

    You are right about the hands. Actually i noticed that i dropped the hands a bit too much too. However my thoughts was that from a far away distance where he couldn't reach me, i can pretty much do whatevers. However at a 1 step or 1 and 1/2 step distance i should keep my hands up. It's a bad...

    HK Ving Tsun Full Contact Competition

    Thanks for your comments. I have was actually using a Wing Chun YJKYM stance BUT at a foward stance. However given that both of us were moving, there were times that I leaned more than I should have and reached more than I should have. Nevertheless, vidoes of this fight helps me pick up the...

    Thanks for your comments. Yeah I know i should have kept up with the pressure when they were backing up then. I blame it on a lack of conditioning on my part. =P

    HK Ving Tsun Full Contact Competition

    Yes the angles/ the Flank is what i am referring to. Just a little bit so it's not so straight on. Thanks for your advice on controlling space as well. Your comments were not critical at all. As I said, I like to keep an open mind on areas where I can improve.

    HK Ving Tsun Full Contact Competition

    The Rules were created to help promote Full Contact Ving Tsun. As for it being limiting or not, personally I think they were okay. Once I was on the mat, i actually forgot about the rules except for the hitting in the throat/ neck areas. As for grappling rules, you can't grab the body...

Honestly, I don't understand the mentality of that, but then again, I am in the WSL lineage and we are open to anyone who is willing to have friendly exchanges. Our doors are always open for...

    Ip man 2

    Just FYI, my Sihing (Sifu Cliff Au Yeung) was one of the Ving Tsun consultant for this movie. So this time around the muk yan joong/ Baat Jam Doo/ and the end fight scene had a tad bit more WSL flavor to it. Hope you all enjoyed it nevertheless. The boxer fight was to make it a bit more...

    Wing Chun's Stress on an Injured Knee

    i still haven't gained back all that muscle, thus the need forever for the elastic metal hinge knee brace. I can't imagine tearing my knee out again. The pain after the surgery the next day was very, very memorable.
