    Does Wing Chun train to Fight?

    You have light sparring and hard sparring. Until you can do both effectively you will be a fish out of water when it comes to using your wing chun in a real fight. Until you hone using your WC at high level of intensity with a resisting opponent who is freely striking as they light. You will not...

    Front-on, side-on, and evasive techniques

    Very Good comments i love it. Well Wang. I say either or, I agree you can use the bow and arrow stance to put more of your body behind it. But for me and my stature that would be committing to much of my body forward. I would use the arrow stance as transition from the MaBu stance. I want to be...

    Saving Wing Chun by Eliminating Chi Sau

    YKS WC has Grabbing and Jerking techiques and locking techniques as well. Simple fight on the outside. WC should have both outside and inside fighting. You should know how to feign attacks and how to keep your opponent at bay or how to bridge if you so choose. Some people by denying them a...

    Wing Chun Sparring

    I have trained Judo, Kick Boxing and Akidio when i was a kid. My Sifu already knew throws, Joink locks, and other things when he taught us the Wing Chun. Many things in the forms and training teach throws. But i will say My sifu was big proponent of cross training. But this whole idea of cross...

    Wing Chun Sparring

    But if you don't spar people of different disciplines then your cross training is more theoretical conditioning with out an actual expression.

    Front-on, side-on, and evasive techniques

    To Answer your question in short, Practice Stepping footwork....I suggest practicing footwork for atleast 20 minutes a week. You should divide it up with partner drills, solo practice or even using it in chi sau. Once you get comfortable with all three i suggest using your footwork from the WC...

    Head Hunter why is that? Can you explain more? Do you practice WC? I some what agree. I love Mike Tyson as a fighter. But if i was a beginner. I would want those Italians who train him to train me not Mike Tyson. Not to say his trainers were fighters per se. I dont recall any of them being...

    Is your WC about fighting or about Kung Fu. Do you train for a work out or to fight? I think people take up martial arts for different reasons. It can be same thing about boxing. You can punch the heavy bag every day, you can shadow box, You can jump rope and hit focus mitts and even Run three...

    Beginners Question - William Cheung and Rick Spain

    I started Learning WC when i was 16. But it was based on sparring. So we learn AXE kicks, Side Kicks, Front Kicks, Back Kicks and Crescent kicks and Sweeps. I have to say throwing endless kicks wore my *** out. The Key is they Fought with their WC and made it work for them. A teacher can teach...

    WELL Said. The YGKYM is good when your toe to toe, At elbow and knee range. But not so good at side kick range.

    Wing Chun Vs TKD sparring

    Its would be different if it was MMA Rule SET like This one. Below. How ever he showed how WC attacks are effective minus using power and fajin with it. The key is to add snap and put your body behind the punches. He did not do that because this is not a Rule SET where he can hurt the guy like...

    Wing Chun Sparring

    Elbows are a great tool. Not a last resort perse, Nor is a kick necessarily a first resort. I will explain. You have three ranges. Kick range, Punch and low kick range, Knee and elbow range. Yes body or waist twist behind a punch or elbow is very effective. Especially if you can connect to weak...

    Do you modify your Wing Chun when sparring?

    I free flow, stick close if possible and continuous strike them with what ever range their in. I can also play the counter game too. But its boring to me. I like to brawl. Basically if a person is a counter fighter, I use grabbing arm techniques to strike simultaneously. I also when close enough...
