The Formula


I used to think that there was a method of learning that would be the magic secret sauce to my Wing Chun.

I used to think that someone out there had the means to make me good if I trained with them – that some lineage/family/approach was the right way of doing things and would lead to my success.

Roll at the wrist, roll at the elbow, hips forward, hips back, more stickiness, more sticking, more control, more punching.

I was wrong.

The formula: adapt in the moment with the opponent.

The method: practicing adapting in the moment with the opponent.

I finally understand the statement The Sweet Science.
