THE WING CHUN FORMS

 

Are Forms Important.

In any traditional Martial Art there is often direct conflict when it comes to the opinions around the question of Forms, are Forms of any use? Do they teach us anything?

Like so many things in life, and as stated by the big man himself, Albert Einstein, ‘it all depends on your Frame of Reference’.

Put plainly it depends on what we want them to be, it really depends on our definition of ‘Important’ and what we mean by ‘can it teach us anything’

My take is that Forms are passwords used to unlock a file that is full of important, even critical information if we wish to understand Wing Chun.

Memorising the password {the Forms} is obviously an intelligent thing to do so that we never lose access to that information but the password itself will not teach us anything that has application value.

Here are some thoughts on Forms, and how best to get value from them.
