WING CHUN KUNG FU/TOUCH ASSISTED COMBAT – WSL/GARY LAM METHOD
We specialise in teaching Wing Chun to all types of people.
Wing Chun Kung Fu is a touch assisted combat system from China used to arrest violence in confined space, in minimum time frame.
It is characterized by the following:
Distance: Utilizing body structure to assist in establishing and maintaining close proximity, in the understanding that during violent assault, space is a luxury and pertinent in maintaining safety. Distance also underpins the ability of an individual to both manifest and deliver power, as well as manipulate balance.
Body Mechanics: Power manifests through bone and mass. The ability to use muscle to deliver force may be circumstantially mitigated during combat. To account for this, Wing Chun is designed to formulate the body into set structures where angle, alignment, compression and rebound are employed as key methods in creating and dispersing force in confined space.
This also creates a fighting method that maintains its efficacy during injury, loss of concentration, or fatigue, making it exceptionally efficient during hostile exchange. It also supports smaller individuals confronting larger stronger individuals, where a deficit of muscle or body weight would usually impinge on the likelihood of success.
Touch Reflex: Unlike the majority of ‘stand up’ Martial practices, Wing Chun utilizes touch reflex. Touch reflex is a gradual process of attunement to directional pressure to identify threat, and stimulate reaction instinctively.
In assimilating to the pressure of another, we are dealing in the known not the assumed.
Learning to read pressure this way enables the individual to work instinctively to modify and manipulate circumstance. Regular practice creates sensitivity so that we may deduce and adapt with an enhanced probability of success.
Rather than attempting to deal at close range with a static guard, Wing Chun operates a dynamic redirection system. Force may be collected, absorbed, added to, or quashed. On a proactive or reactive basis, it is highly efficient in the scheme of command and operates to support timing where simultaneous attack and defense activate to bring violent confrontation to a premature close.
Principles & Concepts: Wing Chun as a system is built upon a series of concepts and principles. It is a collection of applied ideas rather than a collection of techniques. With this in mind, Wing Chun is concerned with reduction (as opposed to collection), in manifesting and streamlining a direct approach to violence. Through observation and testing, Wing Chun exists an a comprehensive tool box, simple enough to be absorbed and utilized, dynamic enough to remain malleable and tactical. Concise enough to refine existing fight competency for superior output.
