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.

Roland Tong Cho Chi on Wong Shun Leung (English subtitled)

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.

Dai Bong-Sau has the same dissipating energy as regular Bong-Sau. You rotate the forearm to ensure you're using elbow power. If you lift your elbow you're using your shoulder, which isn't correct. Don't put intent in your wrists or shoulder or it won't be effective. Keep your shoulders relaxed and make sure you're not making a diving motion with your arms.

Body awareness and being able to control what your body is doing is very important in Ving Tsun.

The purpose of chambering your hands in the form is you are 1) learning original position, 2) your hands are doing something even when they’re not doing anything. #2 is very important because you're working on your ability to be aware of what your chambered hand is doing. Making sure it's not creeping forward, your wrist isn't curling upwards.

Not crossing over to your opponent's other arm in Chi-Sau provides several benefits. 1) you don't need to rely on your other hand, 2) it's faster because you don't have to move as much, 3) it's less risky because you can potentially leave an opening when you cross over to the other hand/arm. Note that we are not saying crossing over to your opponent's other arm is wrong. Rather, we are highlighting the benefits of staying on the same side.

10 minute video of Grandmaster Ip Ching Chi-Sau'ing at the VTAA. At 0:38 he uses his right hand to attack while controlling his opponent. At 0:44 he uses his right hand to shut his opponent down without crossing over. At 0:48 Ip Ching attacks with his left hand and controls with his right hand, both on the same side and switches sides and attacks with his right while controlling with his left.

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.
