Review – Austin Goh’s Training with the Master DVD

What It’s About:

Sifu Austin Goh, presents a complete training class for martial artists of all levels. This DVD includes basic stretching, kick forms, sparring techniques, applications, breathing exercises and chi sao.

Comments:

If you were to go to England and worked out at Sifu Goh’s, studio or Kwoon, the kind of training which you would encounter is best shown in this DVD. This production is done in sort of a hand held camera style to give one the feeling “that you are there” with lots of moving frames and at times problems with the sound, at least in the copy that I have. But pictures are worth a thousand words, so in a movie your eyes and internal auditory dialogue have lots to feast on…given the production style of this DVD, you’ll see how intense Sifu Goh, makes his students work!

What It’s About:

This DVD covers the basic training associated with Chi Sao practice, which includes single and double hand movements. Chi Sao Ring Training, basic hand techniques, with attack and defend applications, as well as showing fundamental movements of Chi Sao leg techniques known as Chi Gert.

Comments:

There is much criticism associated with the Sifu Goh, Wing Chun DVD training series, some of it is warranted and in others it’s not. Most of the Chi Sao techniques demonstrated in this DVD are done by his students…at times it appears their application of Chi Sao, is not all that polished in its execution. The danger with this is, is that the beginning student might establish bad habits in their practice, which could make the techniques ineffective. Read Full Post
