There have been many famous practitioners of the art over the course of history, most notably Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan. Also in recent years, actor and film star Donnie Yen has helped spread the popularity in the popular IP man films.

The video is roughly 10 years old and the man behind the talent seems to be a mystery. It’s hard to tell just how many strikes the practitioner lands on his opponent, but it is at least 6 which is an incredible feat as it takes him roughly only 1 second to complete.

The man shows excellent technique and incredible striking speed, and demonstrates his abilities more than once with different combinations to show he is a very legitimate and talented practitioner.

Wing Chun practitioners believe that the person with better body structure will win. A correct Wing Chun stance is like a piece of bamboo, firm but flexible, rooted but yielding. This structure is used to either deflect external forces or redirect them. Wing Chun favors a high, narrow stance with the elbows kept close to the body. Within the stance, arms are positioned across the vitals of the centerline.

Shifting or turning within a stance is carried out varyingly on the heels, balls, or middle of the foot depending on lineage. All attacks and counter-attacks are initiated from this firm, stable base. Wing Chun rarely compromises structure for more powerful attacks because this is believed to create defensive openings which may be exploited.
