    Stength & Conditioning for Wing Chun

    Hi Everyone, I am wondering what kind of focus everyone has for improving strength & fitness for Wing Chun (if any). Do people just rely on the practice or do you do anything separate. I know my school does some fitness as part of a class sometimes but mostly it is something people have to do...

    Wing Chun Punches

    Since there is a big discussion in other forums, i am posting it... Some claim that the no-straight punches are JKD (just because Bruce Lee was using them). But finally it seems that it is pure Wing Chun... Which means that people are stuck to training principles (useful but short minded)...

    would Krav Maga be the best fit for me?

    I'm 25. I have mental illness. I am not in good physical shape but I am physically very strong. Though a lot of that is because I'm big and I'm only in the top fiftieth percentile of my height so I guess I really mean to say I'm a big guy. I was overweight but I have lost a lot of the weight. I...

    Would Martial Arts created by women fundamentally be better than those created by men?

    The only martial art I know of that originated from a woman is Wing Chun, according to a documentary by the History Channel I watched a while ago. But I have been thinking during my hiatus from posting here. Would martial arts founded by women be more efficient for their intended purpose due to...

    Wing Chun Vs TKD sparring

    I think this guy did and excellent job showcasing his WC techniques while landing strikes and controlling the opponent. What are some things you see. I hate seeing people just stand there stagnate waiting for someone to walk in on them. This was pretty good. What are your thoughts?

    MA and shoulder dislocation/subluxation

    The worst part about it: recurrence. So i am amongst those, having my right shoulder semi-dislocated (this means it doesn't dislocate fully and every time i can by myself put it back, and it is not that much painful) once every 2-3-4 months. I live with it the last 2 and a half years. I've...

    How do I make sure that I train Wing Chun correctly?

    Hello, I am really new to Wing Chun. I just read, heard and watched stuff about Wing Chun. So because of that, I heard about the 'Wing Chun VS' and 'Wing Chun ineffectiveness' war. And I really don't want to write down all of my thoughts because that would be way too long. To keep it short: I...

    Healthy Tension & Limits of Relaxation

    In sampling a few arts, I've heard a variety of thoughts on relaxation and would love to get thoughts on this from an MMA perspective. How relaxed is too relaxed? How much tension is too much tension? What complementary muscle groups do you activate/deactivate in different scenarios?

    Do you have a personal Sil Lum Tao?

    Hello all, I learned in my training to treat the Sil Lum Tao as a dictionary of sorts. To use it essentially ensure I "never forget" while also providing a "wet stone" to sharpen hand positions and moving energy through my centerline. That said, in addition to the Sil Lum Tao that I learned...
