Wing Chun Summer Camp 2016

Over the summer we held two Wing Chun Summer Camps for students who wanted to spend an intensive week (or two!!) training an aspect of Wing Chun, in further depth. We had Wing Chun students of all levels training and learning together which created an engaging and enjoyable learning environment for all involved.

The first week (with the yellow T-shirts in the videos/photos) focussed on sparring and preparation for sparring exercises. Lots of movement drills and opponent guard recognition, looking to start in a tactically favourable position where possible. The second week (with the red T-shirts) continued this with reaction drills at closer range, moving onto a focus on bridging and then attacking or counter-attacking from these positions.

The over-all message this year was from Confucius “It does not matter how slow you go, as long as you do not stop”.

Everything was trained slowly to enable us to analyse and improve our movements and positioning, before slowly speeding up until we reached a speed where things started to break down where we then slowed down a bit to improve and then test again and repeat.

Hopefully you’ll be able to join us next year!
