    Palm up block

    So now, what part of the body are you talking is 1 fist distance away from the body? The elbow? The hand? I imagine the elbow, but correct me if I'm thinking wrong. In my family's tradition, the Taan Sau is done with the palm facing the face, as if you're looking into a mirror, and it is not a...

    Benny Meng - WC, Sparring and Competition

    Interesting topic. I admit that I did not read every post fully, I don't have alot of time to do so at the moment. I am also probably a bit biased here,as I am a direct student of Sifu Meng. I will do my best to not take sides, though it seems that everything here is very neutral and productive...

    Bottom Two Knuckles?

    I agree with ed-swfck and others on this, but would like to expand a bit. Using the bottom three knuckles for any punch is both a safety feature for the striker, and a structural improvement for the punch. Jab, cross, hook, upprcut and vertical punches all make use of this structure. As Ed...

    Doing Si Lum Tao fast

    I'm echoing ed-swckf's thoughts a bit. If Wing Chun is designed to allow for simultaneous offense and defense in the trapping range, why do attacks need to be faster than blocks. This kind of mind set seems to be, well, odd. This makes several assumptions about you and your attacker. Fisrt is...

    There is no style of Wing Chun

    This is an interesting thread. I'm sorry I can't be on here more regularly for the gems like this one. It is nice to see others who are not confining themselves by thinking of this style and that style. From my experience in Wing Chun, it is an enhancing technology, making what you already have...

    Just how many style of wing chun are there???

    I echo Danny T's observations. This is like asking how many styles of Karate are there. One for every practitioner of the art is the correct answer. How many systems are there is a more productive question. Just as every painter who is an "impressionist" will do it his/her own way, so will every...

    help

    Speedy, I highly doubt you'll ever see HFY on video. GM Gee is very adamant that it shall never be recorded on video, due to the culture ot the system. To see it first hand, you'd have to visit a school that teaches it.

    Does Wing Chun "teach" a philosophy

    How about Balance. Wing Chin employs many stances that are very well balanced, from the horse to the front stance, the weight is almost always kept in a 50/50 distrubution, keeping the practitioner well balanced. Take this into life and lead a well balanced life, not going too extreme about...

    This may seem biased, but check out Sifu Meng's school and the Ving Tsun Museum. I have been a student there since 1998 and the learning and quality of instruction is just astounding. If anything, stop by for a tour of the Museum, it is most educational and enlightening. The Hung Fa Yi istelf...

    In what manner to perform SNT?

    I would advise you to practice it they way your were taught. If you were taught to play it gently, do so. if you were taught to play is hard, do so. If with both elements of soft and hard, then that way. Once you have it down the way you were taught to play it, then you can freely play it in...

    I'm new to Wing Chung what can I pratice at home?

    Ask your Sifu. He is your guide through Wing Chun, so ask for his advice. No offense to anyone here, but that is probably the best course of action as Martial Arts are individualized training programs for the most part. Also, ask your sihing at the school as they have been through the testing...

    Looking for a good WC school in the San Francisco area.

    Tydive, Let's see, the main differences between HFY and other systems of WC. Good question, but it can also lead to many long discussions, some of which can also become heated battles. In my expereince with Hung Fa Yi the main quality that sets it apart from other systems of Wing Chun is...

    chi sau

    Mikers, There may not be too many sites with such videos, especially labeled in 'sets'. Keep in mind that there may be different "Set 1" versions in different lineages of the art. However, if you're jonesing to see some chi sau action, check this site out. It has some decent chi sau videos...

    Not dissapointed in Wing Chun

    DeLamar, If I may ask, who is the Sifu you found? I only ask because I noticed you live in Akron. Are you going to begin learning WC? Oh, and don't become too frustrated with your previous training. Without it, you may not have been able to recognize the value of Wing Chun. It sounds as if...

    Internal, grappling in Wing Chun

    At my school, both grappling and anti-takedowns are taught making use of the earth line of wing chun. We learn how to stay on our feet against grapplers shooting for our waists or legs, as well as how to get out of headlocks, chokes, bear hug and the like. We also incorporate internal chi...

    what lineage are you from?

    Lineage: Well, I have studied the Siu Nim Tau of the Yip Man / Moy Yat System. It was required cross training at the time I was studying Tae Kwon Do. We used the Wing Chun for advanced hand drilling and such. I think that cross training was what got me interested in Wing Chun, just due to the...

    Hate Teaching!

    Tony, If you're not wanting to teach, you shoudl try to talk with your instructor, respectfully of course, and inform him of what your primary motivation is. However, he may also be asking you to help judge other's forms and such in order to help you learn at a somewhat advanced rate. You...
