NOW IS THE BEST TIME!!

The Martial Art for Women

One of the great things about Wing Chun is that it is said to be the only martial art founded by a woman and takes its name from its legendary ‘founder’; Yim Wing Chun.   In Chinese Wing Chun literally means ‘beautiful springtime’ or ‘everlasting spring’.

The style does certainly lend itself to those of us with a smaller stature because it relies on technique as opposed to brute force.   Wing Chun is about understanding the use of force and a successful student will learn to use force correctly; this is a key element in Wing Chun practice.

Punching

 

The Wing Chun punch is different from a traditional Karate or boxers punch, the punch should be down your center line, with your fist upright so your thumb is on top. 

This movement and positioning allows Wing Chun to generate enough power to perform the Wing Chun one inch punch.

Center line

Wing Chun places a great deal of emphasis on focusing on your center line, as long as you are facing your opponent, the center line should be the shortest route, between them and you, it is both used as a line of attack and also should be well guarded, it is essentially the high ground of Wing Chun.

Tan Sao block

One of the first the blocks used in Wing Chun and which we have practiced in class is the Tan Sao block.

Tan Sao is perfomed by pushing your hand forward with your palm upwards and your elbow in, your hand should initially follow your center line.Tan Sao
