Brutal TV:

What do you need to become a Wing Chun master?

It’s not easy becoming a master at anything. But what if we told you you could gain self-peace, be one with yourself and the nature around you, become more than just a body, and become a vessel of absoluteness. And then we told you that it would take years upon years, and you would have to undergo an immense amount of pain and discomfort. Do you think you would still seek that self-enlightenment of becoming a true Wing Chun master?

Brutal TV:

Taking on the task of becoming a true Wing Chun master can be done in a shorter time frame than what it takes for other martial arts. A person could successfully complete their training in as little as 5 years. Yes, as little as only 5 years. That’s just half a decade that you can separate from the world around you and gain the bragging rights of getting even closer to becoming a Wing Chun master, which can take a complete lifetime. But what happens over the course of those 5 years is what truly changes a person.

Wing Chun is a super fluid style of self-defense that is designed to shut down opponents with explosive and high-powered attacks. The basics of Wing Chun are made up of three key elements. Wing Chun derives from a system of martial arts that was developed in southern China approximately 300 years ago. Buddhist nun Ng Mui was a master of the Shaolin Kung Fu and utilized this knowledge to develop a way to take advantage of weaknesses inherited within the other Shaolin martial arts. This new system was well guarded and was passed on to only a handful of truly dedicated students.

Brutal TV:

In 1949, Yip Man, who was considered to be the grandmaster of modern Wing Chun, brought the style out of China into Hong Kong and eventually to the rest of the world. Defensiveness and attacking abilities, center balance and control, and the power comes from the forward pressure practices. These techniques are used all while in a state of relaxation. No, we are not talking about sitting by the beach sipping a pina colada kind of relaxation. We’re talking about a balance of mind, body, and spirit, all coming together to achieve complete balance. Through these relaxed practices, immense power and agility is performed. It was designed to be learned quickly and easily. But this doesn’t mean that what is learned is to be taken lightly. A student learns about the overall center line principle of the martial art.

Brutal TV:

A center line is an imaginary vertical line passing through you downwards. Basic understanding of footwork helps tremendously in this area. Across the center line, there are critical organs and therefore, it should remain protected against the opponent. Whenever a person is throwing a punch from their center line, they must utilize their entire body, the hips, and everything that offensively generates a lot of power. The years spent training to perfect just this area of the martial art takes a massive toll on a person. You have to be such a strong-willed individual to commit to these practices because it breaks your body down piece by piece, putting you through an agony that you would never have expected.

Brutal TV:

When it comes down to combat, a student is not rushed into sparring. It takes quite a while before a master allows for their pupil to spar with another student. This is not always because they feel they are not ready for a fighting match but for the safety of both individuals, the sparring element of the training is held off. You wouldn’t want to have your trainee being sent to the morgue due to negligence or from poor preparation. With the art of Wing Chun, poor preparation will land you in the hospital faster than you can say, “I should have practiced more”. Lessons like these are something that the Shaolin would rather not have to deal with. Punches, footwork drills, stances, and meditation become a part of your everyday life, from sunup to past sundown. Training is rigorous and over the course of 5-10 years, it becomes a lifestyle that you must accept.

Brutal TV:

When a student has not accepted this as their new awakened and balanced life, that student is destined for agony. Luckily, you can drop from the training if you just feel that you can’t bear it. But know that the weight of shame will be heavy on your shoulders.
