The key stance connecting Wing Chun with its ancestors like Southern Dragon, White Eyebrow, and Hung Ga Kuen is the Yee Gi Kim Yeurng Ma for a good reason. This is a very powerful exercise that focuses spinal and pelvis alignment, quadracept tension, core engagement, and breathing.Any suggestions for traditional Wing Chun leg drills? There's tons of hand drills on the internet but not nearly any much leg stuff
A lot of Wing Chun students practice this is a fighting stance, and shouldn't. It's really an exercise in endurance and flexibility (which is why it's a fundamental stance in the other southern arts).
Grab a big pillow (or other person if you're that lucky), and squeeze with your inner thighs. Repeat. I think this is probably one of the best drills there is (trapping someone with your legs and core until one of you expires). How far in you can turn your toes is, believe it or not, says a lot about your inner tension. If you're tight anywhere else, forget about your toes, man.
