Buddhism and Wing Tsun

Despite the existence of both of sacrifices, hard work and suffering, men can, with effort, overcome the trials that life requires addressing, making them more conscious and serene. The sufferings of life are born from the desire to own something or be someone. This desire can be won by following the eight-way, that suggest understanding, kindness, integrity, honesty, commitment, etc. There are different schools of Buddhism, the important one for the martial art is the Chan Buddhism, the school rejects rational thought to search for the "truth" to which it is possible to reach through meditation. The Buddhist influence in Wing Tsun can be seen in training that you undergo, being characterized by suffering and sacrifice. Also while you practice, for example, the Siu Nim Tau (the form of the small idea), the student must focus his attention on single movement, avoiding thinking about the next or to its purpose. The SNT in particular reveals the Buddhist influence in the third sequence known as the "triple prayer to Buddha" or Sam Pai Fut.
