Is the description of this forum adequate?

Seems ok to me. You could expand upon by talking about skeletal alignment, sensitivity, no over-committed techniques and such like, but the more u say the more it will be debated.

What I love about WC is its free flowing fighting techniques that allow you to flow from one to another. The utilization of one structure instead of brute force and aggressive close range attacks both kicks and hands are extremely impressive to me!

I have trained in Shotokan, and Shorin Ryu most of my MA experience is in okinawan karate, but after some research i am convinced Kung Fu is much better, and i agree, WC seems much more realistic in a real world 'street fighting' situation, better at close range.. I am really enjoying it!

I have a question for any wing chun teacher or some one who knows how to answer this question how can you relax in a fight or sparring match when have a hard time sensing what the other person is doing.

Hi,

It would be best that you create a new thread for this as you have posted in a sticky.

However I would say you need to practice concentrating on your breathing while doing Sil Lim Tao and concentrate on how relaxed you feel.

In James W. DeMile's book, Power Punch (1 inch and 3 inch punch) there is a section on relaxing. It pretty much tells you to meditate and self hypnotise. So while you are in a relaxed state you repeat to yourself somthing along the lines of every time I say the word relax I will remember how I feel right now and instantly go back to this feeling.

You want to try the same in Sil Lim Tao. Relax and concentrate on your breathing. When you feel very calm you want to remember it and when it comes to sparring tell yourself to relax and go back to that calm state.

It works, I do it every time someone annoys me.

However sensing what the other person comes through sensetivity training through Chi Sau. So its as simple as telling you to keep practicing.

Dean.

I'm pretty new to WC but have many years in multiple styles of Okinawan Karate. I too have a love for this combat system for many reasons. Angles and traps are among my favorite things thus far!

I learned early on to relax by keeping my guard up! I don't mean to sound condescending by making this statement but if you are hard to hit you naturally are more relaxed. When you reach this point you will find it easier to see what's coming at you. You should also keep an eye on the leading elbow and move to the side to fight from the blind side as much as possible. If you do this you virtually eliminate the other arm as a threat for that moment and you can deliver effective blows which should end the conflict!
