Beginner Level will start, exactly as it sounds – at the beginning.
Initially we will take you step by step through our structured beginner course, teaching you, in detail, all the basic hand positions needed as well as footwork & structure, and helping to build your confidence in partner training though exercise drills and the amazing art of Chi Sau (Sticking Hands).
We will also tech you Siu Lim Tau (Little Idea Form), this ‘form’ being a sequence of moves to help train your focus, relaxation, internal health and the building of elbow and explosive energy, all the tools you will need for a healthy life and successful street self defence.
This stage will take you through the early elements of the Wing Chun system, from the basic hand positions and footwork, right through to the 1st of your hand forms, Siu Lim Tau (Little Idea Form) and even into Chi Sau (Sticking Hands), the main sparring method used in Wing Chun.
If you are completely new to the style then this stage will be very exciting as everything is new, but at the same time do not think it stops here, these are just the tools needed for progression further down the line.
During this level everything starts to come together and progress starts to speed up. Now it’s time to work!
We will be taking your Chi Sau development much further throughout this stage by working more on techniques and your attack and defence in general, gaining a better understanding your 1st form by giving applications to each of the moves, and also working on more drills for your partner training.
Also through this stage we start to focus on your street self defence, and even begin work on the 2nd of your hand forms, Chum Kiu (Bridging The Gap).
