Wing Tsun Kung Fu Vancouver event
Saturday, March 7th 2015 was the date for yet another open-air bonus class for members and friends of the first Canadian ‪#‎WingTsun‬ branch (est. 1994).
Beginners and advanced members trained together, working on example exercises that help to further the idea of awareness of surroundings and our individual space, the borders.
Working on:
- generating force = functional strength,
- fluid motion = moving from toes to fingertips
- elasticity = whiplash like strikes to beat a physically stronger opponent
- coordination of hand- and foot-work
- mobility = today: footwork, whole-body work
- bridging of the distance = our attacks are our defenses are our attacks ...

Introduction
My NEW motivational story book can be found at www.dropyourpantsBOOK.com

Ralph Haenel, German-born self-defense expert, author and publisher, looks back at over 37 years of martial arts training. He started his studies in Judo, Japanese Jiu-Jitsu and Karate. In 2014 now he is celebrating the 30th anniversary of learning and teaching Wing Tsun Kung Fu.
For well over two decades, his life is committed to teaching Wing Tsun full time. Benefit from his experience of having learned in the worldwide largest professional Kung Fu organization. For 16 years Ralph was educated by expert WingTsun masters whose previous careers spanned from professional boxing to full contact champions to military combat instructors.
More than 10 years were invested into the development of his teaching and learning method named "The Complete Core Concepts of Wing Tsun Kung Fu". Draw new motivation out of this blueprint for successful training and supercharge your results. New aha-moments for students and instructors alike.
