Style: Wing Chun

Part of preparation for TMA is observing some of the various styles of Eastern Martial Arts. Today’s clip is an excerpt from Ip Man, displaying a stunning example of Wing Chun.

In particular note the moves from 1:50 to 1:55. You get a good look at Wing Chun’s signature short and narrow stance, and the flurry of centre-line punches, called Chung Choi. You’ll also note the minimal movement which leads to efficient defences followed immediately — if not simultaneously — by a counter-attack, and kicks that generally do not aim above the waist.
