The five phases of a fight
In a situation of self-defense there are no real rules of loyalty that can alter the outcome of a fight. This is because in Wing Tsun we attach importance to a workout that is as complete as possible and that it recognizes all the "five steps" that are part of a combat situation.
In every situation above mentioned principles of Wing Tsun can be successfully applied, this is the reason why many martial artists embrace the WT.
The WT starts where most other styles ends: the short stage combat without compromise!
The WING TSUN is the smartest self-defense system ever thought of by humankind, because:
1. It is not based upon physical strength or acrobatic ability and therefore allows a weaker person to defend himself
2. It teaches you to use the attacker's force and ritorcergliela against through the four-way force ":
2.1 Be free from your own strength
2.2 Get rid of the aggressor's force
2.3 Use the aggressor force
2.4 Add your attacker's strength to strength
3. WT self defense movements derive from tactile reflexes that are mechanical and directly determined by the opponent. In this way WT is not susceptible to optical manipulations intended to mislead the fighter.
4. It meets the demand of "proportional defense" and therefore lends itself for use by law enforcement.
5. It's a full martial art. His sense is not so much in the outside as in the revolutionary totality of stylistic concepts! The immediacy, the small number of movements used, etc.. They make WT the fastest martial art!
"Less is more"
- 1. Forms
The "Forms" derive from the fundamental natural range of motion of the body that has been integrated for self-defense purposes, and have also been traditionally recognized as contributors to overall relaxation, meditation, and to feel good.
6 forms in order are:Siu Nim Tau
Muk Yan Chong
Luk Dim Boon Kwan
Barth Cham Dao
- 2. Chi Sao (Sticky hands)
WT is a martial art that is characterized by the exercise of tactile reflexes, one of a kind, which are determined by the sense of touch. Chi Sao defense reflexes are triggered mechanically and immediately from the attack of the aggressor. They are always exactly tailored and appropriate to the situation. The Chi Sao reflexes are much faster than those caused by the reaction to a visual input and also allow a WT fighter to defend himself without seeing. The Chi Sao is the glue that integrates a number of single movements into coherent combination that is not intended, but still adapted to the needs of a given situation. Without Chi Sao WT would consist only of an accumulation of single or dead movement techniques. This makes Chi Sao is the very soul of WT!
- 3. Lat Sao (Exercise of Sparring)
The end of the WT is to develop the ability to fight. In Lat Sao (which means free fighting) the WT-student learns to fearlessly confront in a fight one on one. He may examine the level of his work without fear of hurting his companion, which makes Lat Sao a significant and motivating part of WT.
The 4 Principles of Wing Tsun
Principles of Action
The WING TSUN more than a compendium of many single techniques is a complete martial art system.
It follows the strategy of aggressive defense from Latin aggredio approach something.
At the highest level of the system hierarchy are the four principles:
1. If the road is clear, forward!
2. If there is contact, stay glued to it!
3. If the attacker is stronger, give in!
4. If the attacker moves, follow it!
The economy of WT
The WT is conceived in such a way that a person can manage a fight effectively with just a few movements. The best self defense is one that can defend the most attacks with the least amount of movements!
