Wing Chun is a close range martial art, which emphasizes practicality and efficiency in its techniques rather than brute strength.
Efficiency in Wing Chun is based on the concept that, the shortest distance between two points is a straight line and it always focuses on the opponent’s centre line.
Practicing Wing Chun helps to improve sensitivity , reflex , balance and co-ordination.
Siu Lim Tau (The First Form)
Translates as ‘little idea form’, this is the fundamental training of Wing Chun martial art and it consists of three parts. The first part develops the understanding of the basic movements. It also defines the centre line principles and the body structure. The second part focuses on the proper use of power and the energy flow. While the third part is the practice of the techniques utilising the ‘xing’ (action) and ‘yi’ (mind) which cultivate the internal energy.
Chum Kiu (The Second Form)
Known also as ‘seeking arm form’ or ‘building the bridge’, you learn how to reach out and bridge your opponent. It trains the shifting stance, footwork, kicks and various blocks.
Biu Jee (The Third Form)
Known as ‘flying fingers’ or ‘thrusting finger form’, it develops the attacking techniques, particularly in the fingertips, hands and elbows. You also use it to recover from missed or ovr-committed strikes, thus its other name, ‘gow gup sau’ which means ‘first aid hand’.
Chi Sau (Sticky Hand Technique)
In Wing Chun, Chi Sau is the most important aspect of the training. It is a sparring technique which functions as a bridge between the 3 forms of Wing Chun martial art and free fighting. Chi Sau develops extreme sensitivity and reflexes using all the techniques, positions, knowledge of how to use the energy, learnt from stage to stage.
It is to train the techniques without a sparring partner. Practising on the wooden dummy enables you to generate full power which is not possible with a training partner. It develops the ‘inch-power’ i.e., the focusing of the energy into the last inch of the strike. It also allows you to angle the strike to achieve maximum effect.
