DIRECTIONAL CUES – REFERENCE POINTS

 

Self-correction is only possible if we understand the function of the shapes and positions that we are referencing.

 

First and foremost, Forms are not about movement.

It is easy to think that they are because we are moving as we do them.

Forms are about establishing “Directional Cues” in our practice that can be developed into practical actions that may perhaps look and feel like nothing we have worked on in training, but will never the less be influenced and informed by the training we have done.

It is the “Cues” that are important and not the shape or movements of the Forms.

What “directional Cues” are we getting from the Forms when we do them?

By “Directional Cues” I mean what are the relationships that the movement of the Forms are making us aware of?

“Cues” are reference positions, reference positions between Wing Chun philosophy and practical usage.

We will never use anything from the Forms in the way that we do them, this should be obvious, but the IDEAS behind these movements we should be able to transpose them to other shapes, other situations.

It is the Cues inside the Forms that we should be researching and spending our time on and not the Form itself.

For example, Taan Sau is a reference position for when I intercept an incoming strike and not a methodology.

Self-correction is only possible if we understand the function of the shapes and positions that we are referencing.

 

 

STAY FROSTY.
