Wilde Ving Tsun Association

Traditional Ip Man Ving Tsun (Wing Chun) Kung-Fu. Sifu Jeff is certified instructor in the Ip Ching Athletic Ving Tsun Association. Sifu Jeff is under Sifu Damon Neilson, who is a personal student of Grandmaster 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.

The purpose of the dummy form is to 1) teach coordination of Yiu-Ma with techniques, 2) teach travelling the shortest distance from one movement to the next, and 3) teach the technique application/purpose. The dummy form has been referred to as a “high level combat form”, it should be done with power and intent.

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.

When the front arm is performing Biu-Sau or Cup-Jern in Biu-Gee, the back arm should have Wu-Sau energy. This is done to ensure the proper elbow energy is there so the back arm can transition to a Biu-Sau.

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.

Roland Tong Cho Chi discusses Wong Shun Leung's skill with Yiu-Ma in this video. Note that it has English subtitles.

He points out that a lot of instructors don't understand Yiu-Ma and use muscles instead.

This quote summarizes how you coordinate Yiu-Man - "Legs, waist, elbow together to generate power" (0:37).

Yiu-Ma isn't just turning your waist as this quote points out - "They twist waist not ascend waist" (0:18). Sifu Jeff was told by Grandmaster Ip Ching that you turn at the belly button. Ip Ching had incredible Yiu-Ma. This means you don't turn using your hips, knees or legs.

Grandmaster Ip Ching 葉正 doing Sil Lim Tao, Chum Kil, Bil Jee

Ving Tsun doesn't change concepts when you learn a new form. The stance you learn in Sil-Lim-Tau is the same as Chum-Kiu. You just learn new ways to apply it such as stepping, kicking, etc.

When you're in your Sil-Lim-Tau stance, your knee should be over and inline with your toe. Even when you shift/turn, your knee shouldn't be past your toe.

Be careful to not have your feet splayed out. The lower leg bones aren't completely straight up and down, but the angle is very minimal. This doesn't change when you shift/turn, refer to 5:51 in the video.

Sil-Lim-Tau 07/21/2021

Sil-Lim-Tau

The opening movements in the empty hand forms are teaching the concept Hoi-Ma, not getting you into your stance. Hoi-Ma is the motion of turning your foot in or out to control your opponent's leg. The shuffle after the second Hoi-Ma movement (0:04 in video below) is to get into your stance. You should know your stance well enough to get into it without going into Hoi-Ma first.

When you're working your forms, be aware of both correct intent and incorrect intent. For example, when you're doing the 1st Tan-Sau in Sil-Lim-Tau, you should have elbow intent and no shoulder tension/intent. Being able to control your intent in your whole body is a very important, and challenging, Ving Tsun skill.

Sil-Lim-Tau: 1:47 - 1st Tan-Sau, his shoulder doesn't tense or raise and there is no wrist wiggle or wind up

Biu-Gee: 10:44 - He doesn't flick his wrist as it comes out, which many practitioners do.

Does practice really make perfect? 06/27/2021

Does practice really make perfect?

Consistent training is important for keeping and improving your skills. However, it's not just how often you train, but how well you train. Per the article below, deliberate practice significantly improves your results.

"Within each domain, the researchers averaged the reported results across all relevant studies. They found that "deliberate practice" -- defined as engagement in structured activities created specifically to improve performance in a specific field -- explained 26 percent of the variance in performance for games, 21 percent for music, 18 percent for sports, 4 percent for education and less than 1 percent for professions."

Does practice really make perfect? Does practice really make perfect? It's an age-old question, and a new study finds that while practice won't make you perfect, it will usually make you better at what you're practicing. "Other factors matter as well, but even so, no one says that practice will ever hurt you; but be careful if you ar...

We worked this drill in class last week (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJXZpjT9SIw&list=PLZlOoArU-yWZBGFAzfwjVmIj6_Ey7eimH&index=1). Several students told Sifu Jeff that the third Lap-Sau (0:11) can be challenging. It can be at until you get familiar with it. The second link is a video of Grandmaster Ip Ching reviewing Chi-Sau at a Sifu Samuel Kwok seminar. He does the same Lap-Sau at 8:15. We would recommend watching it in slow motion, see playback speed under settings.

The second video is a great example of how to use the Chi-Sau structures. We recommend watching it at least once a month.

The 1st Fak-Su in the 2nd section of the wooden dummy is used to attack your opponent. Because your elbow should already be pointing at your opponent's core, all you need to do is extend your arm using elbow power/intent. Don't use a sawing motion or push your arm forward, that's using shoulder intent. Also, don't turn your arm so that your palm faces the dummy body. You need to use the side of your hand to attack, not your palm.

Our Story

Ving Tsun is a southern Chinese boxing style martial art created in 18th century Qing Dynasty in the Shaolin Monastery. Ving Tsun is a principle based combat art that focuses on self-defense. Principle based martial arts allow the practitioner to adapt to any situation versus using a prescribed set of techniques.

Ving Tsun is composed of three traditional empty hand forms, a "wooden dummy" form, two weapons forms, and a unique exercise called Chi-Sau. Ving Tsun loosely translates to "beautiful springtime.

Sifu Jeff Wilde is a certified instructor in the Ip Ching Ving Tsun Athletic Association.
