Wing Chun - What will I learn in class People take up martial arts for many reasons. Some to improve their health & fitness, some to learn how to defend themselves, some for increased sense of confidence and others simply for a pastime to immerse themselves in. The Wing Chun class in Grimsby, with its high level of teaching and the friendly relaxed atmosphere caters for all these differing needs. Forms Wing Chun has three forms. These are Siu Lim Tao (for training stillness and Gong Lik), Tsum Kiu (for training footwork and turning) and Biu Ji (for training special attacking techniques using the fingers and elbow). Chi Sau - Sticking Hands Chi Sau is the practical training of the applications found in the forms. Whilst training with a partner you will develop sensitivity, footwork and timing. Soon you will begin to understand how to use an opponent’s energy against them. Regular practice develops instinctive reactions allowing you to adapt to change without thinking. For successful self defence, this is essential. Chi Sau is like a game and is not meant to be treated as fighting or sparring. It allows you to develop your skill in a safe environment because you can relax and let go. Wooden Dummy - Muk Yan Jong The Wooden Dummy training helps us to bring together all we have learnt in Chi Sau and forms to polish our ’fighting techniques’. It also allows us to practise Wing Chun kicks and train the accuracy of our stepping and body position. Weapons Wing Chun has two weapons: The Six and a Half Point Pole and the Baat Jam Dao (Wing Chun Knives). The more you train these weapons, the stronger your bones will become and so your Qi will develop to a very high level. Back
