Wing Chun Adults Curriculum

Wing Chun International Martial Arts

Adults Curriculum Overview

 

The Wing Chun International Martial Arts Adults Curriculum aims to give you the utmost confidence in all Wing Chun International instructors. All instructors will be teaching the same material to newly joined students regardless of the level they wish to reach in Wing Chun Kung Fu, and only when the student has a solid foundation in the core basics of Wing Chun Kung Fu will the instructor start to develop your training.

Wing Chun International has over 30 years as leaders within the Martial Arts industry and at the forefront of Wing Chun within the UK; we pride ourselves on being at the cutting edge of Martial Arts training and the classroom environment.

The adults Wing Chun curriculum is broken down into student phases which define particular fighting and self defence ranges and includes the knowledge and experience of the most advanced Wing Chun teachers within Wing Chun International. The classes are there to build your skills and give you a practical and realistic experience of a real life confrontation, always bearing in mind the fact that the classroom cannot fully mimic a street fight.

Wing Chun International is dedicated to teaching its students the complete system of Wing Chun Kung Fu whilst giving you the immediate skills and ability to defend yourself very quickly: these are 2 different tasks.

Wing Chun International starts you with an overview of the Wing Chun system so you can see what the future holds within your training but at the same time teaching you the most obvious and common attacks and we then move forward with our training from there.

The first phase of Wing Chun covers grades 1 to 4 and is all about stand up fighting.

In Western culture almost every physical confrontation starts with a straight punch, grab, push or a big hook. So we focus mainly on dealing with these and a few other variations such as a low punch and back fists, and we also teach some basic kick defences alongside this.

The second phase of Wing Chun covers grades 5 to 8, we close the range to throwing and ground work.

This phase starts with dealing with and applying knees and elbows, and is the specialist range of Wing Chun where you look to finish the attacker.

We then show you how to deal with grappling, (someone trying to overpower you by grabbing your arms, legs or body), head locks and then moving on from there anti-throwing; if you are going to be a stand up fighter then learning how to avoid or counter being thrown or tripped is essential.

Lastly for the second phase we show you the best tactics and skills to deal with being on the ground with either the attacker still on their feet, or when you both go to the ground, with the overarching principle being that the Wing Chun person wants to spend the shortest possible time on the ground, and to get back on their feet as quickly and as safely as possible.

The third phase of the Wing Chun student program covers grades 9 to 12 and is focused on specialist subjects.

This phase has been developed to allow our students to gain an insight into the specialist subjects of dealing with multiple attackers, attackers with weapons and controlling and restraining the attacker where required, these programmes are developed through drills and exercises for the advanced student and is accompanied by working back through phase one and phase two again and developing them further.

The adult curriculum is taught through the 6 key subjects of Wing Chun within each class:

Forms – The Wing Chun forms are used for solo training and allows you to learn and remember how Wing Chun practitioners use their arms and legs and the positions that they should be in, we call these forms the road maps of your Wing Chun.

Lat Sau – This translates to free fighting (some have a different name for this) but as a beginner we start by learning 10 key points of this drill, which then develop into your fighting programmes and then furthermore into your free sparring. At the beginning, this game is used to get you comfortable being in close distance to a partner and learning to deal with basic attacks being directed towards you. Once you feel confident enough, you can dispense with this training style and move onto more realistic training where you can work through different ranges of application, Lat Sau is however a fantastic tool to develop your skills as a young Wing Chun student.

Chi Sau – This is known as Sticking Hands, however can be translated and trained for complete contact of the body. Once you are in punching range or closer then you will be in contact with your opponent; Chi Sau builds directly into your body the skills you need to defend yourself once you are in contact with the attacker, and find openings in their structure which you can then exploit. It is the training of this skill that makes Wing Chun so individual and unique and makes the Wing Chun Practitioner a true specialist in dealing with people at close quarters and understanding close combat.

Punches – Wing Chun Kung Fu is the only martial arts system that uses a vertical fist in application as well as a horizontal one. Iin Wing Chun we learn how to generate power without using the body, and so rely purely on the theory of the shortest and most direct route. These punches are also trained to learn explosive power generation and this is the tool of the Wing Chun student to end the confrontation in a physical way when needed.

Footwork/Steps – Wing Chun is well known to be a dynamic Martial Art, one where the applicator should move quickly and effectively with speed and accuracy, The better your footwork, the more balance and coordination you have, and therefore the quicker you can move and the harder you can hit. The importance of great footwork can not be overstated in the art of Wing Chun and we work through basic steps as well as advanced sequences for our students to master and incorporate into other aspects of their training.

Theory - Wing Chun has 5 physical elements which are all encompassed by the 6th and final element: theory. Wing Chun Kung Fu is at it’s core a set of theories, principles and mottos, and understanding the theory of Wing Chun is the key to applying the physical elements of the system, therefore allowing you to act as a Wing Chun Martial Artist. Understanding the ideas behind how you should be and act as a Wing Chun martial artist will give you everything you need to apply the art to suit yourself as an individual.

A confrontation usually has three stages: the visual, the verbal and the physical. Over time these theories and concepts can be developed not only to give you a guide on how to deal with a confrontation in a physical fight but to be able to deal with and end the situation at either of the first two stages as well.

ADULT COURSES AND GRADING CURRICULUM

It is important to note that our grading system is NOT a test; rather than a pass or fail, our grading system is a mark of improvement and is for the student to identify where they sit within the complete system of Wing Chun.

As there is so much within the system it is vital that we have reference points in order for us to have a clear idea of our progress thus far. The following material serves as a guideline for this and is a massive help for students who wish to master the art of Wing Chun Kung Fu.

Wing Chun International Martial Arts Adults Curriculum

Basic Course Overview - Phase 1

The Wing Chun International Basic Course is self explanatory, it is a basic method for new students to try out our classes and introduce themselves to Martial Arts and the art of Wing Chun Kung Fu.

The classes will be slow paced and kept to a minimum with the material that is covered so as not to overload the new student with too much information, it is just enough to help the new student get started. As the student progresses, they can then decide to take the next step and set the goal of 12th student grade.

Below is an indication of the material covered on this course, however it is by no means a fixed curriculum, it is merely a guideline for what you can expect to learn.

Please check with your school for the current rotation.

Wing Chun International Martial Arts Adults Curriculum

Technician Training Course - Phases 2 and 3

Our Technician training course is designed to set the student the goal of their 12th student grade. This can be set from the start of your journey and in martial arts this is the recommended method - we simply have the basic course to allow students to try Wing Chun Kung Fu before they conclude that they wish to study the complete Wing Chun system.

Within the 12 student grades you will find all of the necessary material to form an understanding of the Wing Chun system; after this point you can decide whether you would like to master the art of Wing Chun to truly understand the technical elements of the Wing Chun system and how to apply them.

Again, the following is just a guide for you to determine what entry level material is covered, this is however by no means the complete system of Wing Chun - for that you should invest your time in training and attending classes.

Phase 2

Throughout this phase, for all prior material, the emphasis is on development:

There is no set footwork expectations for Phase two, however students should be able to show the required steps of the advanced footwork, as well as dynamic movement of the previous basic steps.

The student should demonstrate development of the SNT; there is no set requirements for this and it should be noted it is the duty of your instructor to highlight areas of improvement for this form.

Students should now be able to show focus and power in all punches, the advanced punching set of 8 movements and a combination will be expected.

Phase 3

In addition to learning your phase 3 material, phase 3 requires maintenance of your phase 1 material and development of your phase 2 material:

Phase 3 for the Siu Nim Tao Form is all about maintenance and ensuring your standards do not slip whilst learning the Chum Kiu Form, there is no set requirements that can be written down for this and it should be noted it is down to your instructor to highlight areas of improvement for this form as you should now be working towards your Technician Qualification.

Phase 3 is about development of the Chum Kiu Form, again there is no set requirements for this and it is down to your instructor to highlight areas of improvement in each quarter of the form. At this later stage of your Wing Chun journey you should have advanced your goal to achieve your Technician qualification and should therefore be learning the outline of the 3rd Form, called the Biu Tse Form. If you have not decided to aim higher then you must maintain your focus on the first two forms only.

Students at this stage in their training should have advanced their goal to achieve mastery of the art of Wing Chun and therefore be demonstrating back the Technician material of the subject of Chi Sao. Again, there is no set material in this phase as Chi Sao is about sensitivity and feeling/responding,however below you will find a guideline for what can be expected at each grade. if you as a student have not set the goal of Technician qualification then demonstrating a competency with the material given thus far is all that is required.

As with phase 2, there is no set footwork requirement, although you will find below what may be expected at each grade.

Phase 3 theory is about being able to talk about all of the theories learnt so far. As a senior student, you should now research and study these and explain how they fit within your normal daily classes and your life in general. Theory from the current student programme should be explained.

Wing Chun International Martial Arts Adults Curriculum - Master Course

Taking this next step in your training means that you are aspiring to master the art of Wing Chun, and so will aim to learn the complete Wing Chun System. The basic and advanced courses are designed to serve as short term, attainable goals to work towards on your journey to mastery of the Wing Chun system; setting your goal to become a master doesn’t mean that you miss the first two stages of your training, it just gives you manageable chunks in your training journey.

Please note this now moves from a grading to a testing and should not be confused with the student grades; testing means that you can PASS or FAIL, and although it is still a mark (grade) of your personal development and improvements, you will be tested in accordance with the criteria required by Wing Chun International.

Chum Kiu Form: Phase Four is about the maintenance of the second form and demonstrating power, this is the key point of this form for students now working towards their TG Qualifications. Again, there is no set requirements that can be written down, however improvements over the complete form should be clear.

SNT Form: The first form should now be maintained and improved with sharp and precise positions.

Footwork: Moving in an appropriate manner without being drawn back into a routine. The emphasis here is on demonstrating the five rules of sparring:
1) Do not move unnecessarily
2) Punch and leave your movement in place
3) Apply pressure
4) Reset your position
5) Be Prepared

Technician Course TG 1

It’s one thing knowing how to do something and another to be a specialist in a specific subject and have the technical understanding to back it up. The Technician training course is like being a GP who knows a little of everything but is not a practitioner of one specific element.

As a masters student you will predominantly learn the Wing Chun system backwards when covering the higher level material.Students working towards their Technician Qualification should start to show the theory of the Wing Chun System through the demonstration of the material requested, it is less about showing a routine or movement like the 12 student grades. Again, the following material is just a guideline and should not be taken for fact:
