Shunde Wing Chun

Click picture to view video.

For fans and followers of Wing Chun, we have a gem of a video clip today. It is Part 2 of a two part series on Shunde Wing Chun by CCTV7 (Part 1 is mainly historical stuff). Among the vignettes packed into this clip are:
  • A spritely 100 year old Wing Chun lady practitioner.
  • Shunde Wing Chun's butterfly knives form which is totally different from the Yip Man version.
  • How Wing Chun's hand greeting differs from its Northern version and its combat application.
  • The application of double Gan Sau (Wing Chun's two hand side block).
  • The application of Bil Jee's windmill arms as seen towards the end of the Bil Jee form.
The commentary and dialogue is in Mandarin and Cantonese but non-speakers should be able to discern the action and concepts without too much difficult. A translation of the transcript is available here (scroll down for Part 2).
