No, not really, the vid was label siu nim tao, but I caught in the comments that it was biu jee. My mistake, tried to correct it right away and my connection decided to slow down to stone tablet speed. Sorry about the confusion.
So one thing I take away from that is that kung fu slippers suck. Gym shoes all the way! Hard to see in that old video, but I believe Emin had better shoes!
My doctor wears 5 finger shoes, I have to strain to keep from laughing every time I go see him (quite often, LOL).
Yeah, I was an "Earth Shoe Victim" back in the 70's, Lol! Good times, eh?Yeah, those five-toed shoes strike me as another silly fad cashing in on the "it's more natural" thing. It will pass. Like the original backward canted "Earth Shoe" people raved about back in the 70's. The Earth Shoe brand is still around, but they don't look like this anymore!
I also doubt that he taught wing chun to himself. He has videos where he demonstrates forms. I don't think he learned this all by himself.
I cannot say that his WC is not correct, but it certainly is not traditional WC. He does not get respect because he so far has not said who taught him, thus we do not know who gave him the title of Master, thus without knowing this, people just are not going to respect him...basic Chinese culture. I am proud to say I attend a school that is of the Leung Sheung lineage. Why does Master Wong not state this? Makes those of us who carry on Ip Man and Leung Sheung's legacy suspicious.I can tell you first hand master Wong is the real deal.
What does it matter if he doesn't tell people who taught him? Some people seem to earn a living by telling people who taught them.
I think Master Wong deserves more respect.
I'd like to know why people think his Wing Chun isn't correct?
BTW, Master Wong had a free training session in the park this last Saturday. He stayed for over 2 and a half hours, answering questions and teaching and giving out free dvd's and t-shirts.
