Arghhhhhhhh!!! Boo-hoo!!

It`s no surprise that martial arts training is expensive. On my income I seem to be having a hard time and it is doing my head in cos I would like to be able to train every other day if possible. Sadly, commitments, work, time, energy all come into play. And even though you have the motivation, the costs and time just isn`t there. It is frustrating cos you want to be good at martial arts and well it seems that you`re let down at times either by your own financial situation...or blame the system and the working week. I`m starting to think that actually martial art isn`t a way of life anymore as I find myself doing less and other people, government demanding more of the same. Is it just me?

Hello.

Hi guys. Just joined here my first community. Wing Chun is great - I love it! I`ve been doing it [Wing Chun Kuen] for about a year and a half here in the Uk. Are you all American here?

I`ve got my grading soon - my instructor says I can do it and I think I can but I just find can`t help thinking they are unimportant. So much of life is proving yourself, posturing and overcoming things. Lol. I guess I`ve gotta do it, man! As Bruce Lee would say.

Introduction

Good evening =)

Just thought I might introduce myself. My name's Bethany, I'm 17 years old and I have begun Wing Chun training a little over a month ago under Sifu Felix Leong (Cheok Son) who trained under Yip Chun, whom most of you would probably know as one of Yip Man's sons.

Wing Chun was a very awkward concept for me to begin with at first, as I have 'dabbled' in Karate and Tae Kwan Do in the past; both being far more stiff and formal. Now I am slowly getting the hang of sticking hands and the physical and mental attitude of a WC practitioner, though I do find what is required ahead of me a bit overwhelming.. especially considering many of the other students have been training for upwards of 10 years and still on their black/purple sashes. This is unusual to me, as at clubs before there were far fewer requirements for a grading and generally took about a year-two years to recieve your standard black belt. I see this as positive though, because WC certainly seems more realistic as a science of fighting rather than mere form.

More than anything, I'm interested in the psychology of the style... especially geometric visualisation. The article posted earlier about 'Wing Chun consciousness' was very helpful, so thankyou to whomever posted it.

I am posting this in the wing chun forum as well, as I study wing chun, and theres a couple guys that show up at the park and this class, that do wing chun. two of the guys forms and styles are very different. one guy studies under Wong Siu, and I forget the other teachers name, I will find out and edit the post later. but the one guy who's teacher I dont' remember, the style is a very old style, I think a different lineage than yip man. maybe a red boat style.

Just some pictures from the day in the park wiht Lu Sifu...
some pictures before class, and during...

anal retention:

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.
