Everything Wing Chun has been involved with, or sold products to, quite a few TV shows and movies over the years. While nothing so glamorous as doing the fight choreography for one of the Ip Man movies or training one of the actors in Wing Chun like some of our Wing Chun friends have, it is still nice to be involved in our own way. Especially since the owner has written, acted, and done some fight choreography of his own back in the day. So these are just a few of the shows the company Everything Wing Chun has been a part of in a small way. Read Full Post
We found this to be interesting. At the opening to the Film, “Ip Man 3”, a pair of swords designed for the Everything Wing Chun site by Buick Yip were given to Mike Tyson and used in demos by Donnie Yen.

In particular, the most attractive of the two weapons, Bot Jom Doh. Sifu Randy Williams goes into depth, with the history and facts, complete form, hand details, footwork, form orientation, and one-man drills, through six chapters of this instalment. Read Full Post

Building the right skillsets requires the right tools for the job.

Chi Sau, without question, is a hallmark method of training in the Wing Chun system.
