The terms 'research study martial arts' has gotten some debate over the last 10 or twenty years. Major martial artists have slammed the term. In its place, they state, need to go the words 'practice martial arts' or 'train in the martial arts.' This has some credibility. The words 'research study martial arts' appears to suggest that those who state they study martial arts simply checked out books and discuss it with their buddies. They never ever really train. On the flip side, lots of individuals just train away and never ever differ from the programs and training approaches laid out by the leaders of their system. This keeps the art intacthowever, it likewise can make it stagnant. By never ever questioning a strategy or understanding its application, a trainee can practice a motion for several years and years without ever understanding how it is used.
In WingTsun, we make sure to teach the applications of every motion in the types, in some cases at various phases in the trainee's development. Nevertheless, a repaired application does not actually operate in the world of genuine self-defense. WingTsun needs more of the trainee in the way of a versatile mind, a calm behavior under tension, and a desire to yield instead of withstanding. One should avert the force of an approaching attack because brute resistance cannot work against another, higher force. It can work against a weaker force, however, why would you require self-defense abilities versus a weaker force???

In discovering the art of self-protection, we cultivate our minds and establish healthy bodies. As the WingTsun Grandmaster Leung Ting stated in his very first interview with me in 1980, "Male does not have a roar or sharp teeth, so the male cannot battle like an animal. He does not have the power of a gorilla nor can he ever end up being a superman, so we use knowledge and ability to beat the opponent." With comfort, we get a calm spirit.
