OPENING UP AFTER COVID 19 LOCKDOWN.

AT LAST, AT LEAST A LITTLE.

 

TRAINING RESUMES AS NORMAL FROM JUNE 13, 2020.

 

As we emerge from the lockdown as much as we may want training to ramp up and get back to normal we will need to act with responsibility regarding “Social distancing”, and keeping at 1.5Metres from each other.

These ‘Social Distancing Rules’ have been mandated by the N.S.W. Government, non-compliance can lead to a hefty fine.

A goodly amount of what we did previously will remain on hold until we see which way the community responds to opening-up and if the Government allow close physical contact, i.e. hand to hand contact, handshakes.

Chi Sau will not be doable for the first few weeks, even if restrictions get eased and we used extended Arms we would be within the 1.5M. zone, the same holds true for most of our application training but we can still hit pads as long as both the pad man and the striker adopt bladed stances.

Applications can be adapted so that the passive partner could be holding an extended pad and striking with a foam ‘Pool Noodle’ to simulate an arm or leg.

This may sound like a negative but it can so easily be turned into a positive.

The ‘Theory of Training’ {Forms} is different in just about every way from the ‘Theory of Fighting’ {Applications} and we need an equal understanding of both if we wish to be proficient Wing Chun fighters.

Focusing only on the ‘Theory of Training’ will not help anyone become a proficient fighter, it is primarily a method of developing a Wing Chun Body.

Focusing only on ‘Theory of Fighting’ may help us become a decent Street Fighter, but not a decent Wing Chun fighter, which is our ultimate goal surely?

From our ‘FIST LOGIC’ perspective the Theory of Fighting ‘ is primarily a method to effectively use the Wing Chun Body.

If we do not develop afully functioning’ Wing Chun Body we have nothing to use.

Our skill level in fighting will always be intimately linked to our understanding of the Theory of Training, they are codependent on each other.

Remember to notify me if you plan to attend any of the training sessions as we are legally limited to 10 people per session, this should not present any difficulties as there are very rarely more than eight in attendance, but I would not wish for any of you to turn up and be turned away.
