Wing Chun master demonstrates impressive skills in sparring

Friday, September 29, 2017

Wing Chun is a Chinese martial art that specializes in close range techniques like the rapid-fire ‘chain punching’ techniques that it is perhaps best known for.

Compared to many other traditional Chinese martial arts, Wing Chun is said to be more practical, direct and efficient but, unfortunately, it seldom holds up in competition against skilled opponents.

However, in this video from Gary Lam Wing Chun, we see Wing Chun actually look kind of cool for a change and like it could maybe actually work in the right type of situation.

We see in the video some very impressive work from the master, who has very quick and accurate hands that he doesn’t hesitate in bouncing off his training partners/students’ heads. Luckily for them, they are all wearing an interesting type of headgear that has a big bubble protecting their face area.

There is something oddly satisfying watching the rapid-fire, popping-type punches land in this video. This master, in particular, has some really smooth technique and, like previously stated, is one of the rare times Wing Chun techniques look like they could actually work and be effective in a real-life situation.

However, these type of punching techniques may not be as effective or pretty looking against say a boxer or MMA fighter but against an untrained attacker on the street, perhaps they could be effective.

Wing Chun Kung Fu is a close quarters combat system from China used for fighting in confined spaces and stopping violent confrontation quickly and efficiently.
