Announcing Early Morning Classes …

We are adding two early morning classes per week to the schedule, Monday and Wednesday as a one month trial run. The time will be 6:00 am – 7:00 am starting Monday July 9, 2018. The idea is to accommodate those who have full schedules in the evening hours and cannot normally attend our evening classes. In addition, morning is a great time to have a practice or a workout according to experts in the field of physical fitness. The class is being offered initially with the purchase a Pre-Paid Tuition card, normally priced at $130 for 10 classes. For this trial run, 5-classes will be $45 and 10-classes will be $80. If you wish to try a class before purchasing a pre-paid card, you may try a one-on-one trial lesson for $25.00. We will take the $25 off the purchase of a pre-paid  card if you decide to go forward with your 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.

WingTsun™ Kup Jarn

Kup Jarn is a downward smashing elbow technique from WingTsun’s third form called Biu Tze  (thrusting fingers form). The form contains several advanced elbow techniques. 

The strike is with the point of the elbow while sticking to the attacker and borrowing his force.

 

WingTsun™ Sut Sau

The WingTsun Sut Sau technique is a special method of attacking the neck with the open hand.  It is taught in the third Wing Tsun form called Biu Tze (thrusting fingers form).  It is executed like a Biu Tze sau hand technique except that the strike is with the edge of the hand.

 

WingTsun™ is a way to Functional Fitness

Do you have trouble jumping onto the treadmill and hoofing it for 30 minutes?  Do you have trouble dropping to the floor and doing 20 push-ups?  How about ten arm curls with each arm with a 25 pound dumbbell on a Sunday afternoon?  Would you feel strange or afraid stepping onto a floor with a lot of screaming dudes in white uniforms lunge punching with blood-curdling intensity?
