    Amazing no wonder the world laughs at wing chun. We don't even understand whats in our own forms. The very first thing you learn ,stance opening is a method of locking and breaking a knee when used in conjunction with pulling or pushing the upper body throwing them to the ground so the knee...

    Amazing ! Truly Amazing the willful ignorance shown by you and others on this board truly is astounding. By the way I have many hours of tapes of my training directly with TST. It is hard to comprehend not only your ignorance of martial arts as a whole but how you are so ego driven that rather...

    How will you respond correctly to your opponent if you already have a solution? If you don't understand the solutions before you get into a fight you will always be working off the opponents timing. Wing Chun is very clear clear on this point. "My opponent moves but I move first" . When you get...

    Argus have you ever been in a real fight? Have you ever fought all out against another trained fighter? The most basic response to getting hit a response that everyone from grade school has seen is the person being hit attempts to grab. Wing chun operates close. This is grappling range. A...

    Great vid

    Jeff I think you are right. I do tend to read to much in to what is said or look for more than was intended.

    Great this is what I was trying to get to with my questions about the Izzo video on the other great vid thread. His comments about fook and huen and how to do tan da show a very limited understanding of wing chun. Fung Chun shows something different. The problem with the Izzo vid is that he...

    Great vid

    Can anyone please be specific about what they think is good about this video. Not trying to flame just want to understand what you see that is good not is a general, he thinks like I do way but specific. There is no fook sau? Do you agree and if so why? Stuff like that.

    William Cheung's Biu Jee

    Interesting to find an article about Lo Kwai wing chun on that site. At the time I was taught I was the only non Asian. There are others now.

    William Cheung's Biu Jee

    Well that's not true. No one teaches as a profession,that's true but that doesn't mean the Wing Chun isn't taught. My students are taught. I have had folks come from around the world to learn. They have been taught. One person made over 35 hours of recordings while he was here. A student of...

    William Cheung's Biu Jee

    Lo Kwai- Butcher Kwai is how he is most commonly known and referred to in the Foshan martial arts community. He was one of Leung Jan's first students. Other styles other than wing chun have stories about Kung Fu of the era that refer to him and his skill's.

    William Cheung's Biu Jee

    No he is not teaching a pure form of Leung Bik Wing Chun. Lo Kwai kept a records of almost everything Leung Jan taught him. I have been taught by the family of Lo Kwai and have seen all of Lo Kwai's notes and records. Lo Kwai was Leung Jan's second for almost all of his challenge matches and...

    Wing chun legitimacy.

    Question was loaded in the sense that I try to comment on the wing chun I see only. Not the person in the video. I try not to get personal. I understand your point and probably agree but it's hard to know what is going on before and after.

    Wing chun legitimacy.

    Loaded question. Now? Today? No, I am not aware of anyone I would pay to learn from at this point but then I am listed on the martial altar of Lo Kwai's family as a descendent of Leung Jan's Wing Chun tradition through his second in all challenges Lo Kwai. Our wing chun can be a bit different...

    Wing chun legitimacy.

    First it doesnt matter how fat etc the guy is. Is what he does effect and will it be effective for others is the questions. The entry he uses is not based on his size and is one way a closing the gap that can work. Notice is slow motion he steps in and uses por cheung/pak/gum to intercept and...

    Master Wong - Legit?

    Never have watched this guy much before. Love what I see. Very entertaining. Nothing inherently wrong with what he is doing. He comes from Pan Nam line so this wing chun should be different from Yip Man line. Their center line idea's are different so it won't match with Yip Man sensibilities. He...

    scared of blocking a round-house-kick

    3 families for methods to deal with kicks. Which family depends upon your speed,stamina comfort level etc. The arms always used in a covering fashion 1. Move into the kick. With a round kick you must get to the depth of the opponents knee. This requires the best awareness stamina and timing 2...

    Just a good video I found on youtube.

    Yes, there are many acceptable variances. Basic is we all have 2 arms,legs etc. However then there are other things we do not share, all have different athletic abilities,different physical abilities so to make the system usable by all there must be individual changes like my house analogy. As a...

    Just a good video I found on youtube.

    Geezer you are right. One reason I don't post often is that I have a difficult time expressing myself in a not so harsh manner. and you a right about wing chin not being tested. That was the point of my post. Since it is not often tested we at least should look for example where at least the...

    Just a good video I found on youtube.

    Suffice it to say, football and golf have no reference when it comes to self defense. LOL, the fact that you could say this shows how little you understand about wing chun or physical activity in general. Nothing I have done is flaming rude or obnoxious. I clearly said the flow was nice...

    Just a good video I found on youtube.

    Excellent question! Thats where the kuen Kuit come in. My best wing chun friend is Phil Romero. He is Hawkins senior student. We have different wing chun backgrounds and yet when we get together our performance and understanding of wing chun is very similar. We even joke about the same wing...

    Sorry have to disagree. If all we go by is" it works" then By your logic all the NFL scouts at the combine are just wasting their time. All Olympic trainers should just hang it. First to think that it worked on you and there fore it will work on everyone or is valid is egotistical and...

    Just a good video I found on youtube.

    Not an insult just a statement of fact from my pov. I tend to be direct don't really have the time to play around. Kuit are the wing chun instruction manual. You have probably heard them or know them even if you don't identify them as such. The first thing everyone is taught is basic elbow...

    Just a good video I found on youtube.

    Wing Chun comes with instructions , the Kuen Kuit. The flow is nice but the actual wing chun skill is average. Many Kuit are clearly violated

    Pao Fa Lien Wing Chun clips:

    I believe this strory is based on one I heard 29 years ago. it has just gone through the telephone game and come out 29 years later as a classic 1970's kung fu movie. Original story: in 50's a Yip Man student ran into a pfl student. Discussion of real or true wing chun etc grew into a fight...

    Grappling and Wing Tsun.

    I would like to point out to Steve and Wang in particular but everyone else as well. The comments tend to show a lack of understanding and the fault in making general assumptions about wing chun. Not all wing chun is the same. The arm drag video is both very good and is teaching the arm drag in...
