As many of you will know I have been putting together a new Event concept.
Wing Chun Trinity.
The idea of Wing Chun Trinity was formed to bring all Wing Chun practitioners together in order to develop a stronger community between different styles plus build a platform to shine a light on the skills of Wing Chun. The events are International and held by key instructors of Wing Chun.
Workshops Open Exchange Competition Event
Guess Instructors will teach workshops
Open mat for general training, rolling, sparring making friends and loving the art.
Via International Chi Sao Competitions with the same rule set. This way the art will have a testing ground which will be consistent world wide. The format will mean that anyone with Wing Chun Chi Sao skill will be able to test skills and learn from the experience.
Problem – Wing Chun is designed for the street so testing under pressure is hard to do safely. So either do not test it, which mean a lack of development. Or test it in MMA, which many have but it means one must learn other arts as well. Plus a very high level of fitness is required and the risk of injury is very high.
Solution – Many people will enter a BJJ competition but would not enter MMA. This is because BJJ competition is much safer and closer to their normally training. Of course BJJ rolling is not a fight it is a sport style which can be used in a fight. BJJ competitions have helped develop many skills within the art. So Wing Chun has it’s own platform – Chi Sao. Yes Chi Sao like BJJ rolling is not a fight but it is a test of our skills and adds value to ones development. Of course Chi Sao as a competition format limits some of one skills. But that is the same for all and the core skills gained are worth the controlled environment. Much the same as Tai Chi has pushing hands for competition. It is the core values of the art that one is testing. The Chi Sao platform is perfect for testing Wing Chun’s core values. Balance, Positioning Control, Timing and Striking Skills.
