You may attend a variety of martial arts schools these days. In some
towns and cities, the schools are on every block. However, relatively few teach
the higher Chinese skills on a routine basis. Usually very advanced skill-training
goes to only the most senior black-belt students. Most of the intermediate training
involves random sparring and forms. None of those long-range styles teach the
sticky hands handed down to them from Yip Man. In Leung Ting WingTsun®, sticky
hands is an intermediate skill.

To analyze martial arts effectiveness, first one must define whether it is important to be effective for participation in a sport as in tournaments or ring fighting or for self-defense. WingTsun™ is practiced as a self-defense system while offering a mental training that directs a student to the simplest solution in an encounter and improved overall confidence. Complex procedures have the effect of possibly failing in a real situation.

In a self-defense class, if you are taught to dissolve an arm grab by circling your arm in a clock wise direction for the right arm grab, are you really going to remember, in a panic situation, which arm grab requires clock-wise or counter-clock wise rotation? The WingTsun concept is to simply hit / kick your attacker. Complex procedures are time-consuming. Time is a critical element in all self-defense.

The Brain on Wing Tsun

The brain on Wing Tsun is about creating ‘muscle memory’ and is therefore a true mind-body exercise.The traumatic brain injury of Arizona U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords in 2011 caused by a bullet to the head  highlighted some of the medical knowledge advances born out of soldier injuries during the two wars our country has recently been through. Rehabilitation from brain injuries apparently involves repeated movements that cause the human brain to create new areas that can take over for damaged ones to perform old tasks. According to CBS news, the soldier-patients undergoing the rehabilitation called progress “challenging.” The fact that it is challenging doesn’t take away the fact of their remarkable progress.

Understanding imitation

To find a good martial arts school it might be useful to understand imitation. If you are looking for a genuine Wing Tsun™ / Wing Chun school, you can help yourself by doing some research.  Check lineages.  Check history.  Check the writings, books, videos, and the geographic stretch of the organization behind the school.

You Need Wing Tsun

You need Wing Tsun for the most effective way to get benefit ‘mileage’ from a martial art. You do not have to learn 400 different, separate modes of movement unrelated to each other to learn complete self-defense. Under attack, a non-trained person can freeze. No movement – no action, just a victim for lack of learned automatic reactions. Fear creates this freeze reaction because the victim has learned no confidence, had no training, has mind-body conflicts because of inappropriate principals learned, or has no knowledge at all.

Wing Tsun punches

Wing Tsun punches are not like the punches from boxing or other martial arts.  The most basic Wing Tsun punch is called the “character sun thrusting punch.”  It is executed, starting from the center of the chest outward toward one’s opponent.  The aim is at his center line.
