Wing Chun is pure self-defense, the goal is simple: to end a violent attack as quickly as possible. For this purpose, logical principles com into play. Developed and practiced as self defence, Wing Chun incorporates all aspects of efficacy: tactics, distance, timing, adaptability, assertiveness, aggressiveness, and a practical sense of direct solution.
The world of Wing Chun is now a big business. More and more tempting promises are added: Wing Tsun for more health, more satisfaction, more work-life balance. As if from a matryoshka doll, in acts of magical self-creation, new providers and demands emerge that carry their skin to market. The point of reference of our academy is not values without measure, the fight against the limp epidermis or experience correlates, as they can be achieved by water aerobics. Our Wing Chun is about practicality. The goal is to acquire an immediate ability to act in an emergency – not the learned procedure (it works in an emergency not strong> ! Strong>).
We work conceptually based, our teaching follows a simple idea: The function of Wing Chun is self-defense, as simple and as direct as possible. All necessary principles, structures and techniques result from the six Wing Chun forms, which contain solutions for practical situations. The syllabus and didactics become lean and comprehensible: the focus is on the sense of function of movements in the context of the application. The principle of simplicity and directness applies, Wing Chun has to work in all situations and situations, in the S-Bahn, on the forest path, in the car, in the parking garage, on the ground etc.
Wing Chun is based on simple principles and logical structures. “Technology” arises and then passes spontaneously and flexibly – defined by the situation.
Take the room!
Attacking at the same time, always simple, always direct, always aggressive!
Bring it to an end! Em>
The Wing Chun forms we understand evolutionarily, i. as a carrier of all essential information of a self-defense system that wants to get straight to the point. For the classroom this means: every element of a form has to be clear in the sense of function. Forms include: 1st technique, 2nd structure and 3rd principles. Understanding the form does not mean that it can run statically (after-). The goal is a variable availability strong> of the elements, as the situation requires (ability to improvise in an emergency). The Wing Chun forms, so to speak, form the “table of contents” of our teaching – each student writes his own “book of improvisation” right from the start.
Control Center & amp; Chi Sao strong>
An important part of our Wing Chun lesson is the so-called Control Center exercise, as well as its subform, the Chi Sao. Man is primarily a visual being. With no other sense channel he can record more information (3.000000bit / sec), calculate cerebrally (8bit / sec) and save (short term memory: 0.7bit / sec). Especially in melee, visual information processing and reflection guidance are quickly overwhelmed. If it is too much, it will reflexively blindfold the eyes. One idea of the Control Center and Chi Sau is to condition another reliable sensory channel for these situations: tactile information processing (about 200,000bit / sec).
An idea even more important to us is to see an exercise in the Control Center to control and manipulate the center of mass. Mediated via arm structures, the center of gravity of the exercise partners are in contact. The goal is to conquer the enemy’s center of mass and effectively use the opportunities that arise. It is true that what works, i. E. in a given constellation represents the individually simplest and most direct problem solution.
Wing Chun is not a sporty performance comparison based on mutually accepted rules. The goal from the perspective of Wing Chun is simple: to neutralize the threat situation as easily, quickly and directly as possible. A central aspect, which receives appropriate consideration in every training session, is therefore the application. Shapes and structures are translated into realistic scenarios – at all distances, against one and several opponents, with and without weapons. Questions of the effectiveness of the system and above all of the individual implementation ability in terms of variable availability decide here.
