The Day To Day Of Wing Chun

It is indeed possible to connect Wing Chun to your daily life.


Many state that Wing Chun is Chi Sau and Chi Sau is Wing Chun, and at the same time there are many people who see their Wing Chun as a way of life, therefore, if Wing Chun is life & life is Wing Chun, and if Wing Chun is Chi Sau, then by the same token, Chi Sau must be life.


I often find this in the most obvious of connections, the straight line approach.

For instance, when asking a student, “How did you get here today, which road did you take?” I am always to be given the same answer, the most direct route.

We would not usually deliberately decide to take a 15 mile diversion so why would we do that with our punches?


While sitting at your computer you do not usually sit there tensing your whole body and burning yourself out, so why do that in a confrontation before a strike is even needed.


The same could be said for the breathing in Siu Lim Tau, and so on…


Give it some thought and see how many elements of your Wing Chun you can connect with your day to day life, I think you’ll be surprised.
