Russia's Systema looks very Wing Chunnish. Similar circular motions, etc.


Of course I'm out of my mind. It's dark and scary in there.

The Hidden Power of Siu Nim Tau

My master Yip Man first started teaching Ving Tsun in Hong Kong at the Restaurant Worker's Union Association. At the time I was the secretary of the association, so Master Yip and I had many opportunities to be together. Before I became interested in Ving Tsun, I often overheard Master Yip explaining his Ving Tsun theories in his classes. Gradually he sparked my interest in the art. It so happened that I had great interest in physics and mechanics; I enjoyed his theories on body structure and power development methods very much. Through my careful analysis, I was convinced that Master Yip's art was flawless and very advanced. Finally, I decided to follow Master Yip and became his student.

Like every beginner in class, I started my journey with Siu Nim Tau , even though I had already familiarized myself with the form as an observer. It took me little effort to completely learn the basic movements. I then began to wonder about the essence of the form, besides the hand movements. I went to Master Yip and inquired about the meaning of Siu Nim Tau, especially the non-combative tone in the name. Master Yip replied: "This is about Lop Nim -- to establish an idea in the mind". I am sure most of my peers have also heard about this term. Master Yip also added that it required prolonged practice of this form to truly master the essence of lop nim.

This hidden meaning of lop nim really caught my interest. I spent much time analyzing its nature, but could still not grasp the concept. Therefore I decided to drop all my thoughts and simply practiced Siu Nim Tau whenever I could, day and night. After a long time, I began to see the connection between lop nim and the form. I suddenly felt great joy in my Ving Tsun training, which fueled my interest in the art further. I became obsessed with the art. Gradually I discovered some powerful but hidden forces within each Siu Nim Tau movement. All the movements are indeed able to deliver indestructible power, yet they look very soft and graceful. At that moment, the concept of lop nim became extremely enlightening and inspiring to me. I finally understood the reason behind it.

I summarize this hidden power as a kind of nim lik (the force of an idea; or mind/intent force, where nim is the same idea/intent as in nim tau ). In essence, Siu Nim Tau has two major points: nim lik and "structure".

1. Nim Lik (force of idea/intent): it stabilizes all Ving Tsun movements to form a springy and dynamic combination of body structures. It makes Ving Tsun body structure able to sustain great pressure and produce rebound energy. Although there are common terms such as nim lik, qigong, noigong or supernatural abilities that are being perceived as some kind of unusual power, here I would only illustrate the concept behind nim lik (force of idea/intent). Nim lik is the power of a highly focused mind. It helps one bring forth chi flow into every part of the body. Everyone should have this kind of power. However, without training, it is very difficult to focus thoughts. Siu Nim Tau is a great tool to invoke mind focus power. If properly practiced, one can deliver this kind of power at will in every instance. The mind can stay focused even when the structure is adjusting or moving at high speed. So to achieve nim lik is the goal of Siu Nim Tau.

Let's look at a simple example: if a healthy person falls down from a 6 - 7 feet tall platform unprepared, although he/she lands with both feet, he/she is still likely to injury him/herself. However, if the person is mentally prepared for the fall, his/her feet will automatically recoil and absorb the impact. Also, he/she can only have this reflex if his/her feet are relax. This is an unique attribute of human muscle in its relax state. The springy force on the feet that help the person land safely is a direct result of relax muscles and nim lik.

note: according to contemporary scientific findings; when human muscles are in relax state and are moving at steady speed, they can sustain greater pressure than when they are tensed up (using force). It is so amazing that our Ving Tsun ancestor Ng Mui was able to make use of this scientific method to design our Siu Nim Tau hundreds of years ago

2. Structure: Yee Gee Kim Yang Ma allows one to project all energy forward towards the target. Tei Gong (pulling up of the muscle around the anus area) helps unite body and stance. It also helps relax the leg muscles while being in the stance; thus the whole body reaches a highly alert and ready state. These are the necessary conditions to produce nim lik and must be maintained firmly. The core techniques of Siu Nim Tau -- Tan / Bong / Fook -- are indeed subtle uses of body mechanics. These three techniques take the shape of arcs or bows. As we extend the arc shape further, Tan / Bong / Fook become hemispheres. As we all know, an arc or spherical-shaped object can sustain strong impact. It can also transfer or deflect energy dynamically when spinning. A wheel can accelerate faster than objects of other shapes (e.g. square, triangle). Each movement in Siu Nim Tau, inspired by this efficient arc-like structure, and when combined with nim lik, becomes extremely powerful defensive and offensive techniques. In addition, practitioners must not employ brute muscle strength. Siu Nim Tau training should never be tiring. To be proficient in this foundation, all movements should be done with the mind rather than strength.

Many Ving Tsun practitioners like to impose their techniques into frozen and static postures. Many believe that Bong Sau should be done at certain height or angle, or criticize others for not complying to their artificial standards. Some may call this style traditionalist; that style reformist; and on and on. In fact, movements in Siu Nim Tau are not named as if they were static postures. For example, when rolling up Tan Sau into Bong Sau, it is the course of this rolling movement that makes up the Bong Sau technique; the function of Bong Sau exists in its circular motion. Similarly, all other techniques in Siu Nim Tau employ circular movements in various directions.

It is a popular belief that Bong Sau is a passive technique: practitioners only use Bong Sau to deflect incoming forces. This would apply to the scenario where a statically posted Bong Sau is being used to block attacks. However, this explanation lacks an understanding of Bong Sau. In my experience, Bong Sau can deliver enormous offensive power. Indeed, it is a very aggressive and penetrating technique due to its circular nature.

Finally, I suggest that all fellow Ving Tsun practitioners look carefully into each technique of Siu Nim Tau. Discover the subtle circular movements in each of them. Practice with mind focus and steady speed. Use the mind to command each technique rather than using muscle tension. I am sure you will gradually find great joy and satisfaction in your Siu Nim Tau training!

David Peterson - Wong Shun Leung Wing Chun

Unread post by Infinitely Expressed » March 4th, 2011, 6:22 am

Sifu David Peterson has been training in the Chinese martial arts since 1973. He became a student of Sifu Wong Shun Leung after travelling to Hong Kong in 1983.

Peterson is fluent in both the Mandarin and Cantonese dialects, which helped him to thoroughly learn and understand the Wing Chun Kung Fu system, as taught by Sifu Wong Shun Leung. It is David’s sole aim to pass on the skills, knowledge and understanding of Wing Chun exactly as WSL taught them to him. (Continued at bottom.)

David is one of only two qualified instructors of Wong Shun Leung’s system in Australia authorized by Sifu Wong personally, and is a fully-endorsed member of the worldwide Wong Shun Leung Ving Tsun (Wing Chun) Martial Arts Association and the Hong Kong-based Ving Tsun Athletic Association.

Peterson is the founder and principal instructor of the Melbourne Chinese Martial Arts Club (MCMAC), which he established in 1983. There he instructs in the “Wong Shun Leung Way” of Wing Chun Kung Fu.

He is a graduate of the University of Melbourne, where he majored in Chinese Studies, and has been a teacher of the Chinese language for over twenty years. Whenever Sifu Wong Shun Leung conducted seminars in Australia, David would interpret for his teacher.


These three DVDs are seminars on both the Wing Chun Kung Fu Siu Nim Tau, Cham Kiu and Muk Yan Jong Forms. They include extremely in-depth explanations of the forms, it movements, principles and application as well as the Wing Chun drills needed to gain the correct skills and applications of the form in combat. These DVD’s are suitable for any Wing Chun practitioner who wants to gain insight and practical knowledge of the Wong Shun Leung Method of Wing Chun Kung Fu. http://wslwingchun.resolvedesign.com/dv ... g-chun.htm

Chu Shong-tin / Tsui Sheung Tin

Unread post by Infinitely Expressed » March 10th, 2011, 1:02 pm

(TU)

Chu Shong-tin (徐尚田, born 1933) was the third student of martial arts teacher Yip Man in the discipline of Wing Chun, and remained at Yip Man's school to become his senior instructor.
He moved to Hong Kong in November 1949, started learning Wing Chun informally in September 1950, and became Yip's formal student in January 1951. Today, he teaches selected students from all over the world, communicating with English speaking students through body language and hands on demonstration, or assisted by other Chinese students, since he doesn't speak English. Though he considers himself retired, he accepts students for the purpose of passing on his understanding of Nim Lik to ensure its survival.
He wrote the book 《詠春寶鑑》 and has produced instructional DVDs.
He is known as the 'King of Siu Nim Tao', Wing Chun's most important form and its crucial foundation. This is because he believes that more time should be given to practise Siu Nim Tao than Chum Kiu and Biu Jee.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chu_Shong-tin


See the third post above this one for his article on Nim Lik (force of idea/intent). See it displayed in the clips below.





Sigung Chu Shong Tin's Chi Sau #1



Grandmaster Tsui Sheung Tin Authentic Wing Chun Compilation



His Life in Wing Chun

Master Chu Shong Tin was born in 1933 at Kwong-tung Province of Mainland China. In November 1949, he left China and settled in Hong Kong. During September 1950, he started work as a secretary for the Association of Restaurant Workers of Hong Kong at 159 Tai Nan Street, corner Wong Chuk Street, Shum Shui Po, Kowloon. It was at that time that he first met the Grandmaster Ip Man who had just started teaching Wing Chun for about four months at that Union. As Ip and himself both came to Hong Kong alone gave them a feeling of being very close to each other. After several months' observation and urging by Sihing Leung Sheung and Lok Yiu, he asked Ip to accept him as his student and on 1st January 1951, thus starting his life in Wing Chun. (Right photo: Ip Man and Chu Shong Tin on the roof of the address of the Restaurant Workers Union)

As he had been observing for several months, he could show the whole Siu Nim Tau form to Ip on the first day of his lesson. Besides working hard on his own training, he also paid attention to what Ip was teaching to the other students. After about a year, Ip started to ask him to practice pivoting. When practicing this pivoting, he insisted practicing several hours each day. It was about half year later before Ip asked him to learn the Chum Kiu. And it was just like Siu Nim Tau; he knew the movements of the whole form already without Ip showing him.

Roughly after one year, he started to learn the Wooden Dummy. Every year, he learnt about twenty to thirty movements until the whole form was finished. It was about two years after he had learnt the Chum Kiu that he started to learn the Biu Gee form. Around 1955 was the first time he started to practice the long pole. As he learnt roughly one movement of the pole each year, it took him nearly seven years to finish the Six-and-a-half Point Pole.

It was many years later after he finished all the hand forms that he started to learn the Butterfly Knives. During this time, he had started teaching Wing Chun part-time. Between the period of 1957-58, he used his leisure time to teach Wing Chun. This period could be divided into three different stages. The first one, he went to teach at the students' residences. At the second stage, when he stayed in the Hung Lau Hotel at 433 Shanghai Street, corner Dundas Street, Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon, the owner there allowed him to teach on the roof of the hotel. At the last stage, as he changed his job to work for the Association of Textiles Workers of Hong Kong, he made use of the space there to teach his Wing Chun. It was during this period that he started to practice the first part of the Butterfly Knives and it was approximately 1963.

In the summer of 1964, it was the first time he established his own school at Four Five Six Building of Nathan Road, Kowloon to teach students officially. At the same time, he learnt the second part of the Butterfly Knives. In l965, he moved his school to 3rd Floor, 11 Cheung Sha Wan Road, Shum Shui Po, Kowloon and in the same year, he finished the whole Butterfly Knives form. In 1967, he relocated his school again and moved to a block away at Flat C, 4th Floor, 3 Cheung Sha Wan Road, where he still teaches.

When he first started to learn Wing Chun, in order to give himself more time for practicing and also suggested by Leung Sheung and Ip Man, he moved to the Restaurant Workers Union to stay with Ip. He had lived together with Ip for about five years until he moved out in 1955 to Hennessy Road, Wan Chai at the Hong Kong Island side due to work commitment at the new job working for the Association of Taxi Drivers of Hong Kong in Wan Chai. Between 1951-55, he had followed Ip moving in 1953 to Hai Tan Street, Shum Shui Po, Kowloon. Then, in 1954, they moved back to the Restaurant Workers Union and in 1955, moved to Lee Tat Street, Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon.

Within the heart of Chu, Ip was a cultivated elder. Ip never talked about Kung Fu in front of people he did not know well. In appearance, Ip was so gentle that he looked more like a scholar than a martial art teacher. Ip did not put any dominated pressure on others, as most martial art practitioners would do. Before Chu followed Ip in learning Wing Chun, he did not particularly like martial arts. However after he met Ip, due to the personality of Ip in teaching unpreservatively and the profound theories of Wing Chun, he becomes infatuated with this martial art.

Besides learning Wing Chun, he was requested by his father when he was about ten to practice Tai Chi as he was too thin and weak. At that time, he did not really know what Tai Chi was about. He just followed what his Sifu had asked him to do and copied mainly the movements. As for practicing, he needed his father to urge him before he would go to train. It was so until he migrated to Hong Kong in 1949. At that time, in order to keep up with his Tai Chi, a friend of his elder sister volunteered to teach him. It was then for the first time that he started to listen to the theories of Tai Chi. Not long after resuming training in Tai Chi, he started to work in the Restaurant Workers Union. Therefore, he listened to the Wing Chun theories during the daytime and practiced the Tai Chi at nightime. After a few months of deep thinking, he felt that Wing Chun was more suitable for him than Tai Chi. Tai Chi and Wing Chun, on the surface, the theories and the way of thinking is quite similar. But the skill on applying the power, he personally thinks that they are opposite to each other. At that time, he was five feet and eight and a half inches tall but only weighed a hundred and twelve pounds, a little bit too thin. However with the skills of Wing Chun, it can help him develop strong destructive force without using any muscular strength. From then onward, he concentrated on studying and exploring Wing Chun until the present time.

Here he uses Nim Lik to transfer the force pushing on him to the ground, as discussed in the article on elbow force above (post #65). He is standing on one leg on a set of scales.
