    Starting Off In Wing Chun

    Can you guys give me any advice on what a beginner might look to do when starting in WC from the ground up?

    Also - how does one end the habit of tensing up during training? It seems like I hear "relax" often, but is it more of a mental thing?:dontknow:

    Just keep training and it'll go eventually. As weird as 'relax' sounds, it is a good idea if possible, also keep check of your breathing, I used to actually hold my breath when I started the Chun. Also the more 'alive' your sessions are the quicker it'll go.

    Question everything you are taught and make sure to test out every technique against a fully resisting opponent.

    But first, make sure you can properly utilize the right angles/movements/footwork/etc.

    Despite claims, Wing Chun is a complex art that is very easy to **** up and lose effectiveness. Took me at least 3 months of self practice to properly execute bong sau alone. I have previous background in Nam Wah Pai / Ashihara / TKD so the other moves, paksau, gan, hun, weren't that hard to pick up. For a beginner, I can imagine the learning curve will be much longer.

    The satisfaction is very much worth the work you put in. Nothing is as satisfying as a "flimsy" bong sau holding up against a man twice your weight.

    A good teacher is critical here.

    Good teachers here. See Representative section

    A good teacher is critical on this aspect.

    Check to see if they spar, do they do padwork (very important!) relaxing - don't focus on power, imagine your wrist being floppy(I know sounds dodge lol)

    Southpaw put it best! Question everything, test it out against resisting opponents!

    counter a roundhouse kick? .. check it with the shin and fire off a punch OR catch it and throw a punch (lower percentage and more likely to get hurt, but if you hit them they will probably drop)

    ..or was you looking for a chun answer?

    well, the best counter for a roundhouse since you do shotokan is a strong reverse hand to the face, stepping in takes away connection from the shin/instep, you might get hit with the thigh/knee but the exchange is worth it, just make sure the step-in is fast enough...
