There’s almost nothing I enjoy more than sharing the benefits of WingChun. Although my preferred mode is through physical contact, much of this communication is via words, especially online.
As of today, there are 231 total comments on our YouTube videos.
Admittedly, I felt it was a waste of my time responding to anonymous commenters. Plus, the crass ones turned me off. So much so that I deleted several comments. But I realized herein was actually an educational opportunity.
Some commenters had genuine confusion. Others were just curious, despite strong contrary opinions. I wanted to acknowledge where they were coming from. And answer with a new perspective based on my experience.
Moreover, I could create a sort of FAQ archive on a public forum. Even non-participating visitors could gain valuable perspectives by reading the ongoing conversation.
Thus, fresh after teaching a couple Private Lessons last Wednesday afternoon, I sat down to respond. My goal was to be as clear, precise and succinct as possible about the unique IAW paradigm. I even through in a little humor here and there. Well, I did my best.
Students occasionally ask me for book recommendations about WingChun. Unfortunately, I haven’t found any I really like besides general recommendations to study human biodynamics, perceptual learning and flow pyschology.
But now I suggest digesting the following ongoing threads:
- WingChun Flow (41)
- WingChun Action I (21)
- WingChun Action II (56)
- WingChun Function I (30)
- WingChun Function II (10)
- WingChun System (73)
I invite you to join the dialogue.
