Gather the Wing Tsun Ideas

As a student of Wing Tsun kung-fu, you must start at the beginning. It is important to your understanding of Wing Tsun that Wing Tsun is not just a grab bag of techniques or ‘tricks.’

You can gather the ideas present in Wing Tsun by attending class, training hard in the principals and by reading the books by Great Grandmaster Leung Ting. This all takes time but the more you train and study the ideas, the faster this will come.

Is Wing Tsun a Form of Athletics?

One can argue, in my estimation, that Wing Tsun is a form of athletics. It is a step-by-step training method to train the muscles to react in a flexible way to defend against attack. It can be a form of athletics without being a sport, however.

To be a sport, it would have to have rules. Wing Tsun does not have anything called a rule.* It does, however, have movement principals. All the fine skills in small muscle groups must be trained. You cannot expect a muscle to react like you want it to without repeated practice.

Wing Tsun Theory of Self Defense

Many a Wing Tsun / Wing Chun / Ving Tsun student and lay person has read and studied the story of the origins of Wing Tsun. They have heard of the Buddhist elder, Ng Mui who was a Siu Lam (Shaolin) kung fu expert. The story goes that she escaped the burning of the Siu Lam Monastery by Ching soldiers along with four others each of whom gave rise to various kung fu styles that exist today. Ng Mui eventually taught another female, a teenager named Yim Wing Tsun. The teenager eventually married her betrothed. Her husband decided that this secret style should be named after her. Wing Tsun was eventually passed down in a narrow family line until the present day. Read more


Forward Energy

There are analogies for life within the art of Wing Tsun kung-fu. One such analogy is the idea of forward energy.

Martial arts analogies exist in other arts but Wing Tsun seems to have many, perhaps because of its concepts. To prevail in an encounter with an opponent, it can be necessary to maintain forward energy and forward direction. To stand still can be deadly to you. Forward energy and forward movement forces an attacker to spend time and attention to deal with you. In addition, it is far more difficult to stop, block or deflect an oncoming counterattack than one that stands still. A moving target is difficult. One that is coming right at you is worse.

Confusion Between Academic Learning and Training the Body

When learning a subject in school, whether it be in first grade or for your PhD in college, one needs to use the higher brain functions to memorize terms or words or to understand concepts. However, a disconnect can sometimes occur when learning a physical skill that requires automatic actions. If we are to safely drive an automobile, we must do a few things without thinking about them. The idea of true multitasking has been debunked by scientists who study such things. The big brain can truly just handle one thing at a time and must continually shift attention back and forth in order to handle several tasks.
