    Wing Chun ranking system proposal.

    Good evening SamAbb. Yes, the students within our school are aware that most other Wing Chun schools do not have ranks, certs etc. Thanks for your input and concern.

    Let me know where you live and maybe I can help you connect with a nearby Wing Chun Sifu.[ QUOTE=Grasshopper22;1481359]Hi, I don't have any experience in Wing Chun but I would really love to. There are no Wing Chun classes near where I live but when I'm old enough to move out (I'm 15), I hope to...

    I have been taught many different views in how you should stand, where you should look etc when you spar but when I started Wing Chun, the way my Sifu put it was the way he was taught from his Sifu Duncan Leung. We drop our weight and sit in the horse (right or left foot forward) We look at our...

    Wing Chun ranking system proposal.

    SamAb, Thanks for your input. We've implemented it in our school locally and it has had a real positive affect amongst the students. I thought it would have been more of a motivator for the younger group but surprisingly the adults have really stepped up their game. Is it the full-proof...

    Thanks SS. I love receiving feedback to see what others may think. The good and the not so good. Most of the CMA people I have encountered thus far on this forum have been straight forward, provided input and or feed back and for the most part, true professionals. I "eat the meat and spit out...

    Wing Chun ranking system proposal.

    Sending off and paying templates for embroidery, silk screening, patch prototypes, shirt purchases shipping etc. but that's not my point. My point was that I'm not in this for the money. "Leave more than you take." was the philosophy I was referring to. Thanks~

    To everyone who has been replying to my thread. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!! Your opinions, insight, professionalism and "boots to the head" :D have truly been a blessing. I hear all of you and am "listening" as well. I was blessed to have been taught by many great teachers and leaders. Many of...

    Wing Chun ranking system proposal.

    I agree. The attention span of this generation is technology driven. "microwave mentality", and wanting it all RIGHT NOW is beat of the drum that many of today's society march to. Thanks for the input.

    Wing Chun ranking system proposal.

    I agree. It will be a challenge. I don't know if the WC world is willing to "share their knowledge" but someone has to start the dialogue. Why not me? I'm used to dealing with people with a "CAN'T DO" , "SHOUDN'T DO" or "WHY DO?" attitude. I will do the best that I can do and hopefully...

    Wing Chun ranking system proposal.

    Xue Sheng, thank you for your input. Unfortunately, I am not as learned of the Chinese martial arts history as you are and could not tell you what impact Chinese Duan had on the CMA house nor am na簿ve to believe that all the Wing Chun families, styles and systems will jump onboard to this idea...

    Ranking System Within Wing Chun

    Ed, I find it amazing that back in 2004 you had the intuition of what we've recently come up with and I invite you to please review my post on our newly developed ranking system and view the You tube feed I did. Please remember its not fully completed but I think we're well on our way that will...

    Wing Chun ranking system proposal.

    Storm Shadow, thank you for your input. I am actually drafting up some certificate examples to show to my chief master to get his opinion/ input. I would love to dialogue with you on how your kwoon does it. I'm envisioning (for example) green shirt level knowing the 1st & 2nd forms (Sil Lim...

    Wing Chun ranking system proposal.

    Ian, I fully agree. A colored shirt does not prove a person's ability just like we've seen in other arts where a person has a black belt and their martial abilities don't validate the belt color that they are wearing however, visible goals for students, consistency in teaching, having the...

    Cyriacus, thank you for your input. My heart is just to see the art grow to its greatest potential and if it's going to happen, there must be some structure.

    Wing Chun ranking system proposal.

    Greetings to my fellow martial artists but at this time more specifically to my brothers and sisters in the Wing Chun/ Ving Tsun family. As most of you probably know, Wing Chun, under the Ip Man family linage, never had and type of visible ranking system. Some schools have incorporated belts...
