    I understand there are other non Yip Man lineages and I know nothing of them, but just like the title of this thread asks, was WC meant to change or continuosly improve over time?

    Wing Chun/Tsun + Brazillian Jiujitsu =

    The above link it to a video with a great camera angle my point is based from....that point being that BJJ and WC/T can easily flow together. They both are designed for the smaller fighter to be a step more equal to a larger and likely stronger opponent. This video shows a simple sweep by...

    Relaxing the shoulders and the body...

    This is one thing that holds me back and is the stain of previous Karate, Tae Kwon Do, and MMA/Grappling training I have done in the past. Even in Siu Lim Tao, I still have a slight habbit of wanting to tense up and be rigid in form. It really happens during Poon Sau and Chi Sau, even when I...
