    Three Seeds of Wing Chun

    I think one clue is that tan and bong are somewhat mechanically opposite of each other, almost as if they were the same technique performed forwards and backwards in time (this would be literally true if you switched a regular tan out for a sinking tan or "tun sau"). The question then would be...

    How to recover from this position

    I'm not properly caffeinated yet so my analysis of this post is probably lacking, but this perspective has always baffled me. Yes, there are a million and one things that you technically *can* do with all of WC's tools. Yes, you can, technically, if you go about it a certain way, use your bong...

    How to recover from this position

    I'm having a hard time visualizing this so I can't really provide specific input, but I would investigate why you're trying so hard to hold your bong sau position against that much pressure - bong is somewhat of a transitional technique and isn't really designed to be able to absorb direct...

    Gary Lam Wing Chun ?

    That's a pretty serious misapplication of this advice tbh, some groups consistently produce really good students and Gary Lam's group is one of them.

    Lo Kwai pole

    Ip Man dunmy forms average between 7 and 10 sections so I guess Lo Kwai would be between 15 and 18?

    Bad Chi Sao has ruined WC as a fighting art!

    It seems rather counterproductive to me to try and force Chi Sao to do things it wasn't designed to do in order to incorporate half-assed grappling rather than just learning proper grappling to begin with.

    Wing Chun Vs TKD sparring

    Wing Chun's backweighted triangular footwork exists for the purpose of cutting off, sweeping and tripping your opponent at almost hip-to-hip range. It's not going to be useful at a longer distance.

    WC Bong Shou used in wrestling

    If you receive force that's best responded with to a bong sau, sure. What's seen in the video isn't a bong sau though, which is important because bong is actually an incredibly weak position in and of itself which certainly shouldn't be held for any length of time and certainly not as a barring...

    The Red Boat Opera Wing Chun

    The idea that Wing Chun was practiced on the red boats has largely been debunked as a myth from what I understand, although you'll find plenty of different groups out there who claim to be the red boat style.
