FIST LOGIC

HOKA HEY ON THE MOVE.

We will never use Wing Chun if we are in a stressful and violent situation, we will just do stuff, any stuff our body thinks will do the job of getting us out of there.

If we allow ourselves to approach this work we call Wing Chun as play it is usually effortless, it is only when we over invest in it, attach importance to it, elevate it, forget that it is, in the end, just normal human movement that it gets tricky.

Even before we embark on Crazy Horse practice we learn that torso is independent.

Add to this that the arms are independent of the torso.

Also that the legs are independent of the torso.

In throwing sports this is referred to as separation.

Keeping it simple, from a purely physical perspective, Crazy Horse is pretty much what we do when we push a shopping trolley around a Supermarket.

Think about that and then go out and find a shopping trolley.

One of the reasons, in fact the main reason I have so many props and tricks is to prevent us from elevating it to something other than simply ‘work’.

We will never use Wing Chun if we are in a stressful and violent situation, we will just do stuff, any stuff our body thinks will do the job of getting us out of there.

Under stress our body reverts to the things it knows how to do best, or at least is the most familiar with. We all do other things in life far more often, and usually better and more naturally than when we do Wing Chun.

It is only in training that we do Wing Chun, if we can reach the point where we regard our training as just ‘stuff’, ‘ordinary stuff’ not ‘special stuff’ there is a good chance our body will pick it when we need to ‘get stuff’ done.

Once more for the late comers.

Play with it, do not take it so seriously, this is possibly the best information you will ever get.

If we need to concentrate {which is essentially a form of mental isolation} on what we are doing we will never have access to that skill in a dynamic, ever changing, hectic and stressful environment that is a violent situation.

Even one of our own choosing.

As alway…
