    How would you defend against a hook?

    You took it out of context, I was referring to the above statement. The video was not meant as a teaching tool, I was demonstrating how WE defend the hook.

    How would you defend against a hook?

    Where did you see a Tan Da? As I stated this is against a large looping hook. It is a simultaneous block and attack and I showed how to stop the second hook or immediately go into an elbow strike. Not all Wing Chun techniques are simultaneous blocks and attacks. It is obvious that your...

    Counter To Lap Sau.

    It has different meanings, and one of them is to protect your head like it is glass and not get hit.

    Counter To Lap Sau.

    We use head butts all the time. I understand if you don't (head like glass) I look at it as emergency technique and it is good to have head butt's thrown at you so you learn how to deal with them in chi sau.

    Counter To Lap Sau.

    Just wondering because when I get pulled hard I go with the pull and strike with my side shoulder. You can even practice the strike on a heavy bag. All good answers by the way. Lan Sau is interesting because I have been playing with incorporating more Lan Sau's instead of Lop Sau's in my WC...

    Chi Sau vs. The Flurry

    From YJKYM I straight punch, my partner pock's and than gives me pressure, pushing straight into my center through his pock. I use my cotton body (sinking of upper body) to let my arm come back towards my body while maintaining slight forward pressure. (I don't collapse my elbow, but my arm...

    Chi Sau vs. The Flurry

    Another related drill from YJKYM is to have your partner throw centerline punches and you are pocking (is that a word :) than he/she suddenly drops their hands and you do three chain punches, than they throw a hook. So the whole loss of hand contact go straight in... I have a nice forward...

    Chi Sau vs. The Flurry

    Good drill Mook: We use the 4 corner drill as well, I like to have small focus mitts on while attacking that way if they miss a block they don't get hurt but still feel some pain. I know we practice centerline punches but they seem the hardest to stop for most students when you throw them in...

    Transitioning from Chi Sau - Lap Sau - Chi Sau

From Dan Chi in Bong , lop Da,(now you are in Lop Sau) to get into Chi Sau the person who has the Bong will return to Tan Sau and with the opposite hand throw there Fook at their partner (at the same time you return to Tan Sau) (we call it...

    Centerline and Turning

    Speaking from a CRCA Wing Chun only perspective: We are 50/50 weight distribution in YJKYM. We shift on our heels, shifting on our heels adds power and length to our Yang motions. Shifting creates Centrifiugal and Centripetal forces. Our motherline does not move during shifting.

    Thought I'd share this.. WT Tripod stuff..

    I have a tri-pod dummy that I built out of pvc. I cemented larger diameter tubes in the ground and placed smaller longer tubes inside. They are strong and provide a flexible target. I agree that he was pulled and went with the pull. He is adapting to the situation.

    Wing Chun uber alles...

    My Sifu allows his instructors to have any Martial Art they want in the same school or train any MA they want, his only requirement is that you only teach CRCA Wing Chun. I would not appreciate someone telling me what I can train and what I can't. I also train BJJ and if I had a large...

    Punching- contract or not?

    I cannot punch hard without making a tight fist, which keeps my wrist from rolling. Which makes tension in my forearm, however I try to limit the tension to just those body parts, which is a skill in itself. If I am punching in the air I can get away with a loose fist, but not on a heavy bag...

    Pacing out Siu Lim Tau

    Hello, I train Siu Leem Tau many ways, if I want to do the slow section with reverse breathing it could take as long as I want it to. For Example: I can do it with 4/3 breathing which can take about 15 minutes. Which means I do 4 breaths out for the first Tan Sau and three from there out...
