Yee Gee Kim Yuen Ma
Stance training helps us correct our posture and get the proper alignment by learning tai gung (rising up the spine to the crown of the head), which in turn is good for health and the beginning stages of our training. This training gives us awareness of our full body and helps us relax and open the joints so they can move freely allowing our weight to sink down through relaxation and letting go.
Sui Nim Tao (Small Idea)
This is the First and most important form of Wing Chun as without achieving the purpose of this form you will not be able to grasp the Second form. We learn how to build the proper skeletal Structure and how to rotate the three main joints in the arm simultaneously while maintaining a relaxed body and controlling the movements with the Mind. This stage is like building the structure of a car!!
Chum Kui (Seeking the Bridge)
This is the Second form and can only be performed once a certain level in Sui Nim Tao is achieved. The first stage is to learn to pivot on the spot to find Our Centre of Mass and be able to pivot without uplifting our weight up as gravity goes down. Once we have found our Centre of Gravity we Start our movements from this point, So when we apply our footwork we will be able to move our full body mass in one unit, delivering our full body mass to the point of contact. When stepping in this form we combined the movements from Sui Nim Tao enabling us to move the body mass and rotate the joints simultaneously. This Stage is like putting the wheels on the car!!
Bill Gee (Thrusting Finger)
This is the Third Form and Can only be Performed once a certain level in Chum Kui is achieved. Bill Gee is an Attacking form which teaches us speedy movements to accelerate our mass to increase our force. We also learn how to use multiple vectors of force in different directions simultaneously to create destructive power. This Form Enables us to further use our intention (Yi or Mind Force) to direct this force to any part of our body, even the fingertips. This Stage is like putting in the engine of the car!!
Chi Sau (Sticky Hands)
Chi Sau is a unique training exercise which teaches us sensitivity in the body through contact and sticking to our partner, disabling them to attack freely. The objective of this exercise is to protect our centre, while attacking our partners centre simultaneously through contact therefore enabling us to manipulate our partners balance, while maintaining stability in our stance. This is achieved by making it difficult for your partner to find your centre while we are constantly attacking their centre so they lose their stance making them vulnerable for attack i.e. strikes, sweeps, takedowns and throws..
Chi Girk (Sticky Leg)
Once we understand how to protect our centre and find our partner’s centre then we can manipulate their balance and set them up for a sweep, takedown or throw. This drill does not include strikes the objective is to takedown your partner with a sweep or throw while maintaining standing.
San Shou (Free Fighting)
Once we have a good foundation we can learn how to apply fighting techniques through sparring in a controlled environment.
Muk Yuen Jong (Wooden Dummy Training)
The Wooden Dummy is a great training tool which helps us develop our footwork, angles which helps us create the proper distance as the dummy is not a moving partner its a fixed object therefore we have to move properly so we don’t restrict our potential power.
Bart Jam Dao (Butterfly Swords)
The Bart Jam Dao training is when you learn proper Swordsmanship (Fencing) the Swords act as an extension of the arms we learn to deliver the power to the swords so we can Parry, Cut, Slice and Stab effectively. When we do Weapon sparring protective gear must be worn so as we dont cause any injuries.
Luk Din Bon Quan (Long Pole)
Long Pole Training is very difficult to direct the power to the tip of the pole due to the length and weight of the pole. So only very diligent students will be able to apply the pole training effectively.
