Footnote to Gor-sau Footage Clips
by Mr. NG Chun-hong
website has recently released a selection of motion clips of our class
during gor-sau practice. The
aim being the heightening of interest in Wing Chun Kung Fu and make
known to visitors the actual occurrences in our class.
We have not purposely fabricated any scenes or techniques to
achieve any sort of goals whatsoever.
should be realised that during the gor-sau practice, both the students
may possess different skill levels and intentions.
While engaging in such practice/training, the pace can be very
quick and the students have to endeavour to practice both attacking and
defensive techniques, and the inter-changeable nature of the two.
Occasionally, students would practice techniques of controlling
and neutralising incoming forces. Most
important, however, is the need for concentration during the practice so
as to prevent inflicting injury to the partner.
Nevertheless, due to the high pace involved, the occurrence of
errors, large and small, in the application of techniques are
mistakes and errors during training can seldom be avoided and it is
hoped that viewers would look upon these with understanding.
Further, it is hoped that viewers would not miscomprehend the
nature of the clips since they are not clips of actual sparring
competitions and certainly not performed for the purpose of
understanding of the principal “Receive what comes, escort what goes,
thrust forward when the arms are disengaged” should include the method
of attacking and defending. Thus,
the practicing of this principal should include, at the same time,
attacking and defending. If
the student only concentrates on the attacking aspect, and overlook the
defensive, then this is an incomplete way of training.
The method of training at our Association is that of the
traditional way, which has been passed down in its purest form.
People with an adequate understanding of Wing Chun would, I
believe, understand that the gor-sau clips are merely those showing a
single aspect of our training and where the situation warrants, we would
select the ever more simpler and direct alternatives.
the release of the clips, we have received many emails from fellow Wing
Chun practitioners around the World.
We are thus very grateful for the support that has been received.
The aim of establishing our website is to attempt to link up and liaise
with Wing Chun enthusiasts around the World and to increase the learning
boundaries and interest of our art.
