The 11-hours Chi-Sau marathon at Wing Tsun Kung Fu Vancouver
mobile structure - whole-body motion - building functional strength
Working on finding the ideal middle ground.

Friday, March 11th 2016 was the perfect "warm-up" day.
Great work with +Siavash Panahandeh, Sifu +Steve McMinn, Sifu Gary, +Bojan Subotic+Adrian Law and +Philip Lee

Saturday, March 12th was the day of the 11-hour Chi-Sau marathon.
Back to back training from 8am until 7pm. We all had a blast.
+Evan Kwong Chung, +Carlos Lourenço Thomas, +Nilo Lida +Ada Tuck Mike, +Darrin Chen +Brian Yam Marcel and Eric.
Eight T-shirt changes later, I heard comments about wobbly legs, dead shoulders, the tiring weight of 3 pounds of oranges in the grocery store ...

Welcome to the advanced team, Sunny!
Group class at Wing Tsun Kung Fu Vancouver on Wednesday, March 2nd 2016
As always, everybody worked very hard in their programs. Members of the advanced team were reviewing the 3rd and 4th section of Wooden Dummy Chi-Sau. And BAM, a new member was introduced to the advanced team, from now on joining the 23 members who constantly train programs from the Siu-Nim-Tau form to the Double Knives form. The team that trains the Cham-Kiu concepts as well as Biu-Tze Chi-Sau sections, the instructor programs from the 1st level to the 5th master level.

Here a quick note from Sunny from his first evening with the advanced team:

"It was quite an experience. There was a LOT of information and it was initially very overwhelming. First of all I’d like to thank you for the opportunity to move up my level of training.

During class I noticed how differently the guys moved and how precise and direct they were. I was especially impressed by their strikes. They all had a lot of force in their strikes with minimal effort.

I was especially impressed by +Sebastian Molnar. He is very technical and performed his movements and actions so accurately. I trained with several partners and he easily moved me across the room more than anyone else.
During the class I felt like I didn’t belong there as everyone else was so much more advanced than me…..but the guys reassured me that everyone has gone through this and there is a steep learning curve.
This actually excites me and motivates me to practice more at home and in private lessons so that I am able to catch up to everyone."

I was just going through my martial arts library and found the following picture, which looks almost like a perfect Wing Tsun Fak-Sau. The drawing comes from the second volume of the distance learning course by German Jiu-Jitsu pioneer Erich Rahn. I bought this set around 1980 and was told back then, that the letters were first mailed to students in the months following the end of World War 1. Other editions are said to have been mailed after 1945.
Born in 1885, Erich Rahn opened his first Jiu-Jitsu school in 1906.
