She soon crosses paths with a Buddhist nun--Ng Mui. and asks the nun to teach her boxing. The common legend as told by Ip Man[7] involves the young woman Yim Wing-chun. (Wing Chunliterally means 'forever springtime' or 'praising spring'. The legend goes that Ng Mui taught Yim WingChun a new system of martial art that had been inspired by Ng Mui's observations of a confrontation between a Snake and a Crane.) at the time after the destruction of theSouthern Shaolin Temple and its associated temples by the Qing government: After Wing-Chun rebuffs the local warlord's marriage offer. she says she'll reconsider his proposal if he can beat her in a martial art match.

arms are positioned across the vitals of the centerline. A correct Wing Chun stance is like a piece of bamboo. Muscles act in pairs in opposition to each other (e. not only for reasons of defense. Performing Wing Chun's forms such as Chum Kiu or the Wooden Dummy form greatly improve proprioception. stable base. the practice of "settling" one's opponent to brace them more effectively against the ground aids in delivering as much force as possible to them. firm but flexible. Since the system was developed during the Shaolin and Ming resistance to the Qing Dynasty. Within the stance. This perhaps explains why no one has been able to accurately determine the creator or creators of Wing Chun. In Wing Chun.one fight.[8] [edit]Characteristics This unreferenced section requires citations to ensureverifiability. Structure is viewed as important.  Tension reduces punching speed and power.[citation needed] Balance is related to structure because a well-balanced body recovers more quickly from stalled attacks and structure is maintained. This structure is used to either deflect external forces or redirect them. Wing Chun favours a high. maximum punching speed cannot be achieved as the biceps will be opposing the extension of the arm. tendon. but also for attack. which is later named after her. including the story of Yim Wing Chun. Additionally. or aligned so as to be braced against the ground. and articular sources. [9][10] [edit]Relaxation Softness (via relaxation) and performing techniques in a relaxed manner. balls. When the practitioner is effectively "rooted". [edit]Balance. rooted but yielding.g. Wing Chun trains the awareness of one's own body movement derived from muscular. or middle (K1 or Kidney 1 point) of the foot depending on lineage. the force of the hit is believed to be far more devastating. structure and stance Some Wing Chun practitioners believe that the person with better body structure will win. Wing Chun rarely compromises structure for more powerful attacks because this is believed to create defensive openings which may be exploited. All attacks and counter-attacks are initiated from this firm. the arm should be relaxed before beginning the punching motion. . Yim Wing-Chun there-after marries Leung Bac-Chou and teaches him the style. narrow stance with the elbows kept close to the body. biceps and triceps). is fundamental to Wing Chun. many legends about the creator of Wing Chun were spread to confuse enemies. Shifting or turning within a stance is carried out variantly on the heels. If the arm is tensed.

Wing Chun practitioners attack within this central area to transmit force more effectively. whereas a relaxed limb provides an opponent less to work with. another center defined in some lineages and referring to the vertical axis of the human body where the center of gravity lies). The stance and guard all point at or through the center to concentrate physical and mental intent of the entire body to the one target. the interpretation of the centerline concept itself is not. but focused. A large emphasis and time investment in training Chi Sao exercise emphasizes positioning to dominate this centerline. the vertical fist straight punch is the most common strike in Wing Chun.  Muscular struggle reduces a fight to who is stronger. although . without need for recomposure.   Unnecessary muscle tension wastes energy and causes fatigue. since it targets the "core center" (or "mother line". Striking closer to the center transmits more force directly into the body. [edit]Centerline While the existence of a "central axis" concept is unified in Wing Chun. To reach outside this area. footwork is used. as well as compromising the striker's position. solar plexus and groin. with the limbs drawn in to protect the central area and also to maintain balance. the principle of simultaneous attack and defense (Lin Sil Die Dar) suggests that all movements in the Siu Nim Tau with a forward execution flow into a strike if no effective resistance is met. This is very much in the spirit of the tale of Ng Mui. Other explicit examples of punches can be found in the Chum Kiu and Bil Jee forms. The most commonly seen interpretation emphasizes attack and defense along an imaginary horizontal line drawn from the center of the practitioner's chest to the center of the enemy's chest. the hands do not move beyond the vertical circle that is described by swinging the arms in front. Wing Chun techniques are generally "closed". For example. stiff limb provides an easy handle for an opponent to push or pull with. [edit]Punches Because of the emphasis on the center line. striking an opponent's shoulder will twist the body. stiff arms are less fluid and sensitive during trapping and chi sao. Many variations exist. However. nose. limb affords the ability to feel "holes" or weaknesses in the opponent's structure (see Sensitivity section). with some lineages defining anywhere from a single "centerline" to multiple lines of interaction and definition. with the hands crossed at the wrists. The human body's prime striking targets are considered to be on or near this line. With the correct forwarding these "holes" grant a path into attacking the opponent. Minimum brute strength in all movement becomes an equalizer in uneven strength confrontations. In most circumstances. throat.  A relaxed. Tense. A tense. including eyes. dispelling some of the force and weakening the strike.

Wing Chun practitioners believe that because the elbow is behind the fist during the strike. the practitioner would step in closer and closer to the opponent. a punch that starts only an inch away from the target yet delivers an explosive amount of force. as per the formal name of the punch (which is translated as "The Sun-character Rushing Punch (or Hammer in Cantonese)") [citation needed]. it is thereby supported by the strength of the entire body rather than just a swinging fist. and therefore has more impact. The punch is not "loaded" by pulling the elbow behind the body. Many skilled practitioners pride themselves on being able to generate "short power" or large amount of power in a short space. A common analogy is a baseball bat being swung at someone's head (a roundhouse punch). In some lineages of Wing Chun. and his body as the "hammer". to the middle two knuckles.  Protection. a short burst of energy in which the arm is momentarily tensed at the conclusion of the strike. as opposed to the butt end of the bat being thrust forward into the opponent's face (wing chun punch). Also with the elbow down. It is more difficult for an opponent to execute an elbow lock/break when the elbow occupies this position. driving the fists forward as a hammer drives a nail. to punch in a straight line following the shortest distance between the fist and the opponent. The vertical punch is the most basic and fundamental in Wing Chun and is usually thrown with the elbow down and in front of the body. a practitioner typically would thrust his full body weight towards his opponent. the fist is held anywhere from vertical to horizontal (palm side up). The elbow is kept low to cover the front midsection of the body. Depending on the lineage. . The contact points also vary from the top two knuckles. the fist is swiveled at the wrist on point of impact so that the bottom three knuckles are thrust forward adding power to the punch while it is at maximum extension. This aids in generating power by use of the entire body structure rather than only the arm to strike. With each successive punch. The punch travels straight towards the target from the guard position (hands are held in front of the chest). Wing Chun favours the vertical punch for several reasons:  Directness. with the fist as the "nail". A common demonstration of this is the "one-inch punch". which would cause far more damage than a glancing hit and is not as easy to evade. The punches may be thrown in quick succession in a "straight blast" or "chain punching". it can be used as a disorienting finisher. Wing Chun is often criticized for encouraging weaker punches that do not utilise the whole body[citation needed]. to the bottom three knuckles.these punches may appear to be superficially different they are simply the result of the punch beginning from a different origin position while following the same fundamental idea. Wing Chun punches are delivered using Fa Jing. However. it offers less opening for the body to be attacked while the forearm and punch intercept space towards the head and upper body.  Strength and Impact. When executed correctly. This concept is similar to impact loading in engineering.

Because of Wing Chun's usage of stance. the rebound of a horizontal punch uses only the arm to strike. When an opponent is "trapped". he or she becomes immobile. This is a desirable trait to a Wing Chun practitioner because it promotes use of the entire body structure to generate power. this kick can also become a knee at close range. the practitioner's position or balance is less affected. Other kicks include a stamping kick (Mook Jong) for very close range and a sweep performed with the heel in a circular fashion. The limb directly in front of the chest. Variations on a front kick are performed striking with the heel. a beginner is often introduced to basic kicking before learning the appropriate form. targeting anywhere between the ribs and the back of the knee. [edit]Uncommitted techniques Wing Chun techniques are uncommitted. Any punches or kicks can be strung together to form a "chain" of attacks. though some have made interpretations of small leg movements in the Siu Nim Tau and Bil Jee to contain information on kicking as well. Aroundhouse kick is performed striking with the shin in a similar manner to the Muay Thai version with most of the power coming from the body pivot. According to Wing Chun theory. Every kick is both an attack and defence. [edit]Trapping skills and sensitivity The Wing Chun practitioner develops reflexes within the searching of unsecured defenses through use of sensitivity. In this elbow-out position the hinge-structure directs force outwards along the limb producing torque in the puncher's body. If the attack fails. Depending on lineage. This means that if the technique fails to connect. [edit]Kicks Kicks can be explicitly found in the Chum Kiu and Mook Jong forms. Training through Chi Sao with a training partner. . This is characteristic of southern Chinese martial arts. break down the opponent gradually causing internal damage. Kicks are delivered in one movement directly from the stance without chambering/cocking. kicks are kept below the waist. Alignment & Structure. Whereas. Traditionally. This kick is usually used as a finisher at closer range. in contrast to northern systems which utilize many high kicks. the practitioner is able to "flow" easily into a follow-up attack. elbow down. vertical nature of the punch allows a practitioner to absorb the rebound of the punch by directing it through the elbows and into the stance. these attacks. the vertical punch is thus more suitable. with legs being used to check incoming kicks or to take the initiative in striking through before a more circular kick can land. Chained vertical punches are a common Wing Chun identifier. one practices the trapping of hands. All Wing Chun techniques permit this. in contrast to one big attack. or a pivot may be involved with the foot and knee on a plane at an angle (Mook Jong). The body may be square and the knee and foot are vertical on contact (Chum Kiu). At short distances this can become a knee.
