Think For Yourself

A lot of people say that the Wing Chun stance is stable because of all these triangles.

I think the opposite.

If I can fight from the most unstable, stupidest looking stance ever –

ain’t nobody gonna f*ck with me.

In Darkness; Be Whole

If done correctly (read: taught with the right intent), martial arts can expand one’s psyche to include brave new inner worlds.

Chin up?  Lean back?  No.

Chin down.  Lean forward.  Somewhat counter-intuitive to put one’s head in the forefront; however, this is of utmost importance to develop the right attitude towards fighting.  Screwing one’s feet down into the floor to uproot the opponent.

You have a Dark Side, says Jung and I.

Scott says that sometimes things need to be explained for the student to understand.  That’s what makes it an internal martial art.  I like that.

And if done correctly, martial arts can expand one’s psyche to include brave new inner worlds.

You know what this Wing Chun shit is all about?

Standing there, in the pocket – taking some damage, all the while you completely destroy your opponent.

You wanna know why?

Because that’s what life’s about.

Rebirth of Slick

It’s what we do, us martial artists.  Us Human Beings.  We reinvent ourselves.  We build it up and tear it down, just to build it up once more.

I don’t know who I am anymore.

So then we reach for the only thing that makes sense: a skipping rope and boxing gloves and weights.

Best thing for now – while I wait.

Wing Chun; Who Cares?

Posted in Death and the Macabre, Martial Arts and Training with tags on October 15, 2013 by ctkwingchun

I guess I’m a funny beast because of the way I see things.

Take Wing Chun for example.  So many people practicing and teaching this martial art.  So many claiming to have the real or true skill.  Who cares?

Honestly, I used to; however, I don’t anymore.  I mean, seriously: we’re standing on a rock, that rotates around the sun, that floats in space.  We’re all going to die one day.  So, seriously, I don’t take it all too seriously.

What’s the defining factor in a martial art?  Principles?  The ability to make robots out of students?  Or functionality – whatever that may look like?

We’re all expressing our learned skill through our personal experiences.  And I think that’s a beautiful thing.
