FIST LOGIC

IMPROVE BEING HUMAN FIRST.

In Wing Chun, in particular, there is a perception that using “Softness” translates to there being no need to be fit, fast or strong.

As you all know in the 60 years that I have been a practising Martial Artist I have explored many variations.

Different styles and different approaches within styles.

Some, such as Bagua Zhang, Xing Yi Chuan, Kali {Doce Peres} and R.M.C.C.Q.C. for less than two years so I do not consider myself proficient at these but their influence was valuable.

Others like Western Boxing, Judo, BuJutsu and Wing Chun I trained in for quite extended periods, as such I consider myself knowledgable and capable in this space.

In the competitive arts, Boxing, Judo, there is an equal weight given to non-specific physical conditioning training as there is to skills specific training.

In my experience, this is missing in the “Real World, Real Self-Defence Style” training that Kung Fu inhabits.

In Wing Chun, in particular, there is a perception that using “Softness” translates to there being no need to be fit, fast or strong.

We should think about this and determine our own position.

I can, if needs be, hit someone softly with an Iron Bar, but I doubt that I could knock them out with a Foam Pool Noodle.

When I did these videos this morning my intention was to cut and paste them into one video, however when I did this the result was uneven and the ambience was a bit off so all three of these videos are essentially the same but with some differences that may just make one of them easier to understand.

At the end of the day it is only your understanding that will take you forwards.

This is the same info delivered a little differently.

WORK ON YOUR WEAKNESS – PLAY TO YOUR STRENGTH.

WHAT KIND OF DAY IS IT FOR YOU?
