The fundamentals of Wing Chun training are simple in concept, but can take a lifetime to master.
The basics of the Wing Chun system are:
Conservation of energy – not dancing on the spot while you wait to see what happens, only use power when it is needed
Minimum movement – deflection rather than total evasion
Working on short range attacks – with explosive energy
Straight line punches – this being the shortest route between you and your opponent
Relaxation – enabling you to react faster without muscle tension which can slow you down
Kicking – aimed mainly to the knee or a maximum of waist height (your waist height), such as a stopping kick. This is because high kicks can be telegraphed and compromise your stance.
Complete use of both arms and adopting a square on stance – So you do not have a bad or preferred side during a fight and allows you to attack and defend simultaneously .
