    ha ha......

    This is the result of the new emphasis on creativity in the classroom.

    Or is it just out infatuation with personal expression?

    As ridiculous as changing the name yet again is, they don't appear to be terrible bullshido at a glance...

    Full contact with protective equipment
    Realistic but safe training. Protected by protectors (shin-,
    chest-, head-guards, etc.), one tries to defend against kicks,
    knee and elbow strikes, and punches, and to use these
    effectively oneself.

    The reason that most schools have different spellings is out of respect for the original style.

    People avoid calling their federations 'wing chun' as they do not wish to insult their instructors (usually Ip Chun/Yip Man).

    Especially, if they have changed the style slightly. For example, we call our style 'Kamon Wing Chun' as we know that it is not a textbook copy of what Yip Man taught.

    I imagine the instructor of Wing Tsjun has created this name for that reason...

    I'm sorry this is your teachers reason. I don't by this explanation you keep trying to assert.

    If it was Kamon Martial Arts, Kamon Kung Fu, or Kamon Grappling, then I'd agree.

    When you add .........Wing Chun you are still living off the name WC. People know or assume what they are going to get.

    Also, by using one of the popular spellings VT/WT/WC, most people will know what camp you fall under.

    I've never heard them called 'piles'...but I believe they are talking about several posts that are dug into the ground upon which you stand and train as you move from post to post.

    They are great for helping w/ balance and strength.


    On a side note...I am impressed that they have the tri-podial form as part of their training since it is pretty rare in Wing Chun.

    God I am so sick of the fucking chinese whispers.

    Wing Tsjun (WT) comes from China

    and belongs to the Kung-Fu (Chinese

    for “hard work”) family of martial arts.

    According to legend, this martial arts

    system was developed around

    300 years ago during the Chinese

    civil war by two women. Over many

    years the system was passed down

    and improved within a close circle of

    friends and family.


    Can someone who speaks chinese verify that kung fu does not simply mean hard work?
    And two women? what the?
    Close circle of friends - have they seen the wing chun community lately?

    Wing Chun is chinese whispers taken to it's ridiculous conclusion...
