Forty-eight years ago …

Forty-eight years ago

At one point I was surprised to find myself being slammed to the pool-deck’s astro-turf by a Kung-fu Grandmaster …but that is twelve years into my story.

I pretty much stumbled onto martial arts as a teenager in Detroit, Michigan where I grew up. The teacher of my Health Class mentioned that there was going to be an 8-week course in karate taught in the high school gym by a local instructor. Of course I did not know where it would lead. It did become the thing that allowed me to at least try to emulate my hero at the time, Bruce Lee.

Review of Ip Man 2

Review of Ip Man 2

January 23, 2013 –

Like the first Ip Man movie, it took a long time for me do a review of Ip Man 2.  The original Ip Man movie was so dramatically different than other ‘martial arts’ movies, that I am tempted to re-classify it outside of that genre.  However both that movie and this one have enough martial arts action, brand specific, no less, that we have to view them as a much better than average films in that genre.

Like everybody, my expectations were high going in to seeing Ip Man 2…

Mindfulness in WingTsun training

Mindfulness in WingTsun training

It seems obvious that learning a martial art requires one to “pay attention” when training.  However in a martial art, many techniques require repetitive training, that is, many repetitions of the same movement. In this situation, many people have trouble maintaining focus. The trouble usually lies with our busy lifestyles.  Many people are not accustomed to being alone with their own thoughts for periods longer than a few minutes! If they are not speaking with somebody, they are listening to a radio, a television or on a cell phone. These passive forms of distraction are actually harmful in the long term if not balanced with an appropriate amount of time using one’s own brain in an active way. The mindfulness taught in WingTsun is also a form of training in the mediation of Chuan (Zen) Buddhism. It is no coincidence that WingTsun was developed in China, a country with many Buddhists. However WingTsun became separate from the practice of the ancient religions of China after the burning of the Siu Lam Monastery. After that, WingTsun was passed down in a narrow line to various secular successors over its 300 year old history.

 

The Siu Nim Tau form is WingTsun’s way to train a beginner to become more mindful of the training. In other words, it is important to pay attention to the performance of techniques and therefore it is important to train this mindfulness at least once per day in the Siu Nim Tau form. It is hoped that the lessons learned in doing the Siu Nim Tau form will transfer to the rest of the student’s WingTsun training.

Sticky hands

Sticky hands

In learning #chi sau, the WingTsun™ student learns the most unique and coveted of martial arts skills. Sometimes called “sticky hands,” the student is trained to “stick” to the arms of one’s opponent. In this way a practitioner’s hands can receive important information about your attacker’s balance, position, his telegraphed intentions, his flexibility or rigidity.
