Wing Chun Techniques
A fundamental in Wing Chun is the idea of the centre-line – an imaginary line descending from the top of the skull down to the groin area. When fighting, the primary aim is to guard the centre-line.
All Wing Chun training starts with learning Siu Lim Tao (little idea form). This form teaches the student the idea of the centre-line, movements, the use of hands, and the basic stance. The two other forms are Chum Kui (searching for the bridge) and Bil Jee (stabbing fingers).
A famous training aid of the Wing Chun system is Chi Sau. This is not used as a fighting technique. By teaching correct elbow positioning and the usage of minimum effort to defend oneself, Chi Sau is used for developing the sensitivity of the arms, so that a practitioner can feel the intentions and movements of an opponent.
There are several fighting techniques; this includes three bare-hand fighting forms, wooden dummy technique (8 sections), and one double-knife form and one long pole form.
Wing Chun fighters exert a minimum amount of force to do the maximum amount of work, thus having more stamina than other fighters. Wing Chun looks simple but all these elements live and work as one body. If learnt correctly, no force can stand against it.
