I HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN.

 

What we think of as six Forms are better seen as two different presentations of the one “Little Idea”.

 

Hi Guys,

I have not been able to do the videos I promised to do as I have unfortunately pulled the muscles in the side of my neck and the rear of my shoulder that is stopping me from holding my head straight.

I will be doing some videos as soon as my neck/shoulder allows but in the meantime here is some food for thought.

In this time of self-isolation, the only access we can have to Wing Chun is through the Forms.

What we think of as six Forms are better seen as two different presentations of the one “Little Idea”.

The first three Forms present as Information, the second three Forms present as Application.

What most people refer to as the Sil Lim Tao Form is in fact only the “A” Section of the Sil Lim Tao Form, Chum Kiu is the “B” Section and Biu Gee the “C” Section.

Only on completion of the Biu Gee set have we seen all of the components of the Sil Lim Tao Form.

The Dummy, the Knives and the Pole are three semi-practical methods/constructions for exploring the “Little Idea” with a more physical agenda.

Seeing the S.L.T. Chum Kiu and Biu Gee as different levels of the same thing makes it easier to understand the unified nature of Wing Chun and from there to engage in deconstruction and reconstruction which is the only way we can coax them into life.

Break them down and build them up better than before.

To do this we need to have a deep understanding of what the Forms are, how they fit in the system, what the critical components are and how they inter-relate.

During this awkward time, we have a chance to really engage with the Bio-mechanical aspects of the Wing Chun body without the distraction of trying to solve aggressive physical problems in that thing we call training.

If we can all get into this it will save everyone years of stumbling in the dark.

It should not be too long before I can film but in the meantime, I will put up the new page and populate it with some of my previous videos.

 

STAY HEALTHY.
