Pacific Wing Chun Celebrates Sifu Mara Miller Promotion

It is with great pleasure during this auspicious holiday season that I announce Mara Millers promotion to Black Shirt Certified Instructor here at Pacific Wing Chun Kung Fu Association. Please help us in congratulating her on this momentous life achievement, and beginning of a lifetime journey. Our Certification Ceremony was attended by students and visiting Sifu Scott Cannam from Red Deer Wing Chun in Alberta Canada.

Mara challenged this undertaking holding down career, home with two children and training all with absolute dedication.  Studying and teaching up until weeks of giving birth. Physical movement only light controlled contact so don’t be alarmed.

Most people can learn to fight, some can learn to teach people to fight, but very few can learn to fight and teach others to fight.

Mara has shown she can do both quite effectively, and efficiently.

As my Sifu Alan Bak Fu Vasquez says,

“Kung Fu is only good when it leaves your hands and goes to another.”

Be well and absolutely happy always, much respect,

Only a practitioner of Wing Chun Kuen really knows the amount of time dedicated to study and training it takes to become proficient. I have had many students proficient already in other disciplines start the journey into Wing Chun Kuen only to find the key in becoming a solid Wing Chun fighter is time and dedication to practice, study.

We here at Pacific Wing Chun Kung Fu Association wish to applaud and congratulate Josh Martin, Tristan Reyes and Andrew Nguyen for their efforts in dedicated study. Tristan, and Josh both received white shirts signifying beginners level proficiency testing in San Sik (open handed training technique) and for competency and understanding of Siu Nim Tao formwork. Andrew earned and received a red shirt signifying competency and understanding of Chum Kiu formwork, knowledge and competency in up to the fifth section of the Mook Yan Jong, and proficient in intercepting attack and defense also Chi Sao Structured movement.

Honor Dedication and Respect

w375c

Honor Dedication and Respect

  The words in the title all intend and hold within a common theme of positivity,  virtue. As a teacher, coach or mentor it is imperative that these values are instilled unto your student especially where the skill being taught holds knowledge that could potentially end or take a life.

  This title or mandala is posted in bold type style on the website I created for my kung fu organization, the Pacific Wing Chun Kung Fu Association. The words hold special meaning and remind me of the many hours spent with my Sifu Alan Bak Fu Vasquez and Kung Fu Brothers working to understand and apply all the technique within the Wing Chun Kung Fu System.

I was blessed to have found a mentor in Sifu Bak Fu he truly cared enough to help us understand and made sure we worked hard at every technique we were taught. I spent a little over four years training at Orange County Wing Chun Kung Fu Association, and I am honored to have met and trained with some of the finest martial artists today.

 I consider it a great Honor to be a part of my Kung Fu family which extends to our mother association in Hawaii via the Hawaii Wing Chun Kung Fu Association headed by Sifu John DiVirgillio.

  The time spent studying a martial art or any skill based activity requires some degree of dedication, but in the case of Wing Chun Kung Fu there is no substitute for the dedication you need to put into studying and practicing this Kung Fu style.

  In ancient times the perseverance one needed to have just to even become a student at many kung fu school was a testament to the prospective student in regards to their resolve or dedication to learn. This helped the Sifu make decisions on who to admit and give this knowledge to and who was not worthy.

  Life in these times were a little more cut and dry in the fact that if you were in a fight or struggle, it could mean one lost life. Respect was paramount where study of the martial arts was concerned. Training was also very serious, students dedicated themselves to study, having and holding respect for the art, their Sifu and for themselves. Respect was demanded in all aspects within the training. If a student didn’t show proper respect or dedication to their training they were removed from the kwoon or worse they died due to the course of their actions.

  Today’s students and practitioners are held to a much lower standard if any standard at all, due to the attractive monetary gains to be had. There are also paid advertisements where they expound anti-hate , or  anti-bully campaigns, wherein a true martial art or kung fu system would hold their students and practitioners to these base ideals.

  As martial arts came to be popular in the late 60’s and into the 70’s these positive ideals were intact and true to these ideals, which produced many of the great martial artists of today.  Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris, Bill Wallace, Jim Kelly, Wally Jay, Ed Parker, Mas Oyama, and Morihei Ueshiba to name a few either created their own style of martial art or influenced the world with their mastery and dedication to the martial arts world in general. These true martial artists held themselves and their students to the highest of standards.

  In my training it was instilled that respect was paramount, and being a good student was my job when in stance. It was within the first lesson where we were taught this ideal. Respect for our Sifu, the art, our fellow students and for ourselves.

 For those whom were dedicated in training and whom progressed through the ranks it became clear whom honored these base ideals.

  It is an Honor to have had the opportunity to study under my Sifu whom I respect and hold in the highest regards, and with a few my Kung Fu Brothers whom to this day I consider close family.

  At some point every teacher of martial arts come to an important crossroad, where they are transmitting a skill-set or knowledge which only few are worthy to possess to running a business where these ideals are bypassed for the sake of a dollar.

  Dedication to your art, and students is paramount, uphold our Sifu’s teachings with honor, and respect yourself, your Sifu and your fellow student no matter where your particular art come from. This is the Tao or Way of a true Martial Artist and a true Kwoon or Martial Arts School.

Train Hard, Be Well, and Much Respect!

The Core Structure and Principles of Siu Nim Tao

15 - 1  The Core Structure and Principles of Siu Nim Tao

  As the first open hand form within the Wing Chun Kung Fu system, Siu Nim Tao has the important job of introducing practitioners to basic body structure, and the structure of all the open hand techniques within the system.

  The Little Ideas, or Small Ideas as it is called represents all structured movement within the system, but it doesn’t only teach structure but also helps practitioners build ideas of how to utilize these structured movements.

  At the beginning of the form, root is gained by sliding feet out to proper width, then pressing the hips and pelvis forth to engage the spine and muscles across the back, around the core all the way down the legs to the floor to create a solid postured body mass.

  In practicing this posture the practitioner will eventually be able to feel the proper width of this stance and recognize their body engaging in a very structured root, stance, or ma.

  As the hands and arms engage into bridging postures, Iron Bridge theories are practiced as mucsle memories are created and tendons ligaments are toned, strengthened.

  The open hand movement in Siu Nim Tao is intend to train the practitioner, how to properly strike powerfully within a limited distance, the limits within their upper, middle and lower gates while keeping the bodies posture or root, structured and sound.

  Through out the practice of this hand form students are encouraged to use Lok Nim or use the mind to visualize actual use of every hand posture. In coupling these hand movement with the mind, a very powerful connection is created.

  As practitioners progress through the system reflection on the core principles of Siu Nim Tao give the practitioner an opportunity to fine tune all the structures needed to create solid a kung fu repertoire and true warrior fighting skill.

Train hard, be well and much respect
