Wilde Ving Tsun Association

Traditional Ip Man Ving Tsun (Wing Chun) Kung-Fu. Sifu Jeff is certified instructor in the Ip Ching Ving Tsun (Wing Chun) is a principle-based martial art that applies simplicity and efficiency to combat.

Around 300 years old, Ving Tsun is named after one of its first student (a female), Yim Wing Chun. The concept of "principle-based" allows the system to conform to the practitioner rather than the practitioner conforming to the system. This principle-based practice is what makes the system truly an art.

Kung Fu Mediahouse presents: Grandmaster Ip Ching Chi Sao Seminar

One of Sifu Jeff's pet peeves is sloppy techniques. Having the correct structure makes a huge difference. Make sure your techniques have proper structure and power in the forms and Chi-Sau. Don't let your fingers curl in too much on your Tan-Sau or Wu-Sau. Make sure your Bong-Sau is correct when you Chi-Sau. Make sure you're making a fist for the punch in the Lap-Sau drill.

Sifu Edmund Fong - Demonstrate Chum Kiu 03/15/2022

Sifu Edmund Fong - Demonstrate Chum Kiu

Chum-Kiu's purpose is to teach you Yiu-Ma and coordination of Yiu-Ma With Siu Lim Tau techniques. However, it also teaches you about combat. It teaches you to keep your eyes on your opponent (know where they're at) by having you lead with your eyes. It teaches to you keep your hands out when you approach your opponent. It teaches you how to step into your opponent. It teaches you to have as much power as you can while staying relaxed with proper position.

Sifu Edmund Fong - Demonstrate Siu Lim Tau - 示範小念頭

Sifu Edmund Fong demonstrating Sil-Lim-Tau. Sil-Lim-Tau is where you learn Ving Tsun and practice the fundamental concepts. It's important that you pay attention to each motion to ensure you're using proper structure, power and position. Pay attention to your body to ensure you're not using muscle instead of structure, you're not using shoulders when you should use elbows and you are in your stance.

1st section of the wooden dummy

The following concepts are fundamental to Ving Tsun and should be practiced at all times. Training these concepts on the wooden dummy will help improve your efficiency in the forms and Chi-Sau. References to the video are included to show examples.

Point of origin: Techniques start where the hand is, moving to a better position gives your opponent time to react
Video reference: 0:09. Note that the Tan-Sau and palm transition to the low and high Gan-Sau from where they are.

Relaxation: Keep all techniques relaxed and only apply enough intent for proper position and power.
Video reference: 0:33. Note that the shoulders are relaxed and Sifu Jeff is in the proper stance even though I stepped in with power.

Shortest distance: Techniques travel the shortest distance possible, both going out and coming back.
Video reference: 0:13. Note that the Dai Bong-Sau (low Bong-Sau) transitions to a Tan-Sau without any wind up or unnecessary motion.

Sifu Adie Gray Chi Sau with Grandmaster Ip Ching

Chi-Sau Tenets:
• Come to stay - Stick to opponent and control when there is no opportunity to strike
• Go to hit – You must stop sticking to strike opponent
• Hit when necessary – Not taking of advantage to attack provides opportunity for opponent to attack
• Afraid to hit, easy to hit - Your opponent can attack when you move away from attacks
• Want to hit, easy to hit - Striking when there’s no opening provides opportunity for opponent to strike

You use Yiu-Ma to control the line instead of your arms. This ensures you use structure instead of muscle (tension). Great example of this from Sifu Edmund Fong. Sifu Edmund was a student of Grandmaster Ip Ching and a very humble and skilled Ving Tsun practitioner.

Wing Chun Chi Sao lessons in Hong Kong

It's important to be careful with Dan-Chi and not face sideways like you're fencing. Dan Chi-Sau allows you to focus on one arm, but the concepts and principles are the same as Chi-Sau. One of Master Heimberger's principles was "Face the form", which means you should keep both hands in range of your opponent to help control and avoid getting hit.

Sifu Jeff also requires his students chamber the hand not in use to help with training and body awareness.

Ip Ching on Wing Chun’s first form, Siu Lim Tao (English subtitled) 12/07/2021

Ip Ching on Wing Chun’s first form, Siu Lim Tao (English subtitled)

A good Jing Ma (front stance, Sil Lim Tau stance) stance should feel like you’re sitting on a chair or a stool. The standard below is what is considered proper. Video for reference below.

1. Inside of feet are equal to outside of shoulder

2. Toes pointed slightly in – be careful not to turn them in too much, this is something a lot of practitioners do and it's hard on the knees and makes your stance weaker

3. Knees are bent to, but never past, toes - many practitioners aren't low enough, making them less rooted in their stance

4. Knees pulled in just enough to keep feet flat, should feel like you’re gripping the floor with your feet - don't pull your knees in too far or else you will have knee pain and a weaker stance, we've been told this is done to protect against a groin kick but that's not going to protect you against a groin kick and it's making your stance weaker

5. Hips rocked forward and butt pulled up - many practitioners don't keep their hips and pelvis in the correct position and lose structure in their stance, especially when stepping

6. Flatten back and raise the skeleton - don't pull with your chest, use your back, this provides a lot of structure without using tension (muscle)

7. Back of head in line with the back of the feet - your balance will be at risk if your head is beyond the back of your feet

8. Knee to shoulder is in a straight line - a curved line is less structurally strong and more likely to sacrifice your balance

Poon-Sau focuses on Sil-Lim-Tau lines and same side while Chum-Kiu is more dynamic and adds crossing to your opponents other side. Sifu Jeff likes to think of Poon-Sau as Sil-Lim-Tau and Chi-Sau as Chum-Kiu. The concepts you learn in Poon-Sau can and should be applied in Chi-Sau.

When you are in Chum-Kiu-Ma, you should be able to lift your front leg without having to move or adjust your body/balance. This is true no matter how little you shift/turn.

Grandmaster Ip Ching uses the Biu-Gee Lap-Sau at 0:24 in the video below. It's different than the two handed Lap-Sau in the dummy because the back hand is pinning (Gum-Sau) rather than Lap'ing. Note how it causes his opponent to bend over. This is why you need to think Gum-Sau with the back hand when you practice this in Bui-Gee.

Ip Ching Wing Chun Wooden Dummy Section 1 (English subtitles)

Your elbow does not always point straight down. Where it's pointing depends on both the position of your arm and the application. If you force your elbow to point down when it shouldn't, your shoulder will turn in and you will lose proper structure and power. And you will probably be more tense.
