I do Ip Ching wing chung, Ip ching is the son of Ip man so that is where our school originated from. Our teachers are Master Garner Train and and Sifu John Graper. Both are very good teachers.

We also Study jujutsu as well and occasionally work on some escrima.

chum kiu is really an amazing form and Im really enjoying learning it, sadly ive been taking alot more time with certain aspects of it then i should because i have a knee injury that is making really hard for me to practice some of the foot work.
Just outta curiousity how long have you been working on siu lim tao? I know some schools spends different amounts of times on different forms before they move on. Ive been going strong on it for about a year know (i was up to chum kiu a couple years ago but then stopped going to class for personal reasons and know im back in and having a great time).

ive been doing sil lum tao (actually knowing it all and practicing it along with the san sao that goes with it) for about a month now. We go through the forms pretty quickly. Sifu says a year in youll know the 3 empty hand forms. Then you learn how to use it more by perfecting structure and sparring.

sweet, that sounds like a pretty good approach. Although i really like our kwoon and teachers, if there were more wing chun schools in the area i would probably go sit in on some classes just so i could see how others do it

If the style is taught any other way than the traditional way, then its not Wing Chun anymore, and should be re named IMO.

the only problem is that alot of different people will tell you that alot of different ways are the traditional way. Thats one of the reasons that wing chun has so many arguments

The book Complete Wing Chun has details on many different styles of Wing Chun. I'm reading it now and it's very interesting!

That sucks, I guess the best thing to is learn it straight from Ip Chun.

Not really, ip man taught many others besides ip chun and everyone will have a different slant on wing chun. And there are many different styles of wing chun, the best thing to do is think for yourself and avoid closing oneself off to differences because of pollitics.

Kwok cheung is a knowledgable man.

I study yip man wing chun also, my lineage goes through sam kwok who has represented ip chun for a long time and is representing ip ching at this moment in time.

Regarding the Yipman students. Sifu Leung Ting of Wing Tsun branch has a very organized ranking levels, it is organized to an idea that you start the difficult long routes of the system only to learn shortcuts in the future. www.IWTA.com and www.EWTO.com (European Wing Tsun)
