Are You Driving From The Elbow?




A common problem I find in Wing Chun drills, and even Chi Sau, is people stopping or applying energy too soon, making their technique pretty but just ‘Style over substance’.


This problem reared its ugly head once again this week so I decided to address this once again too.


Below is an video, taken when I was trying to help a student through this exact issue of mistiming his energy, therefore creating tension in his hand, which in turn resulted in the techniques becoming slow and rigid.


Please forgive the lack of sound quality but this was taken during a busy training session,


Thank you.
