Wing Chun Adults Curriculum

Wing Chun International Martial Arts

Adults Curriculum Overview

 

Wing Chun International Martial Arts Adults Curriculum, is a well written adults curriculum aimed to give you the utmost confidence in all Wing Chun International Instructors, All instructors will be teaching the same Material for Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced level students the first time upon learning Wing Chun, Then and only when the student has a solid foundation in the core basics of Wing Chun will the instructor start to develop your training.

Wing Chun International has over 30 years as leaders with in 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 training 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 to be practical and realistic when applied in real life situations however we must understand and appreciate that you are in the classroom and not in the streets. Wing Chun International is dedicated on teaching its students the complete system of Wing Chun Kung Fu along side give 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 move our students training on 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 whilst running along side this we teach some basic kick defences.

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

This phase starts with knee's and elbow's (dealing with and applying) and is the specialist range of Wing Chun where you look to finish the attacker. Then we show how to deal with grappling, (someone trying to overpower you with grabbing your arms, legs or body and also head locks and then moving on from there to 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, and 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 overall concept of the Wing Chun Person to not be on the ground and to get back on there feet as quickly and as safely as possible.

The third phase of the Wing Chun student programmes 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 multiply 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 at the same time of working back through phase one and phase two again.

The adult Curriculum 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, we call these forms the road maps of your Wing Chun.

Lat Sau – This translate or stands for free fighting (Some have a different name for this) but as a beginner we start by learning 10 keys points of this drill which then develops into your fighting programmes and then further more onto your free sparring, at the beginning this game is used to get you use to being in close distance to a partner and learning to deal with basic attacks being put onto you and once you feel confident enough you can dispense with this way of training and move onto being more realistic where you can work through different ranges of application, it is however a fantastic tool to develop your skills as a young Wing Chun Student.

Chi Sau – This is known as Sticking Hands (Hand = Sau) however can be translated and trained for complete contact of the body, once you are at 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 and open the other person up once you are in contact with the attacker. It is the training of this skill that makes Wing Chun so individual and unique and makes the Wing Chun Practitioner a true specialists 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, in Wing Chun we learn how to generate power without using the body so to rely purely on the theory of the shortest and most direct route, these punches are also trained to learn explosive power generation and that 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 foot work is the more balance and co-ordination 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 our basic steps as well as advanced sequences for our students to Master.

Theory - Wing Chun has 5 Physical elements and then layered with the 6th which in reality what Wing Chun actuallly is! Wing Chun Kung Fu is a set of theories, Principles and Motos and understanding the theory of Wing Chun is the key to applying the physical elements of the system and 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 is what 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

PLEASE NOTE our grading system is NOT a test, A test is something that you pass or fail and this is not what Wing Chun is about, Our Grading system is a Mark of improvement and for the student to identify where they sit within the complete system of Wing Chun, The Wing Chun System is so big that if you do not have this Reference point on your journey for most students they will feel lost, a little like stepping out of a spaceship and having the rope cut, you will get lost in space or rather for us you will get lost with understanding what you have or have not learnt, this following material is a guide only and is a massive help for students who wish to Master that Art of Wing Chun Kung Fu.
