Buick Yip: Stories of Wing Chun #01, Biu Jee Footwork

The following took place many years ago, I think it is about time to share.

Me and my American Akita, Chat Chin, used to walk to the fountain in Tsimshatsui East in Kowloon at nights where it is spacious to run, that night, we chased each other, dogs run faster than human, when I am losing him, I whistled and turned back, he took over the chase. In no time he is just right behind me, all at a sudden my adrenaline buildup and I simulated desperation, I must turn back and get him. The chain of movements below is never rehearsed and just came in natural sequence as if having been trained for the situation.

WCI Review – Moy Yat – Gerk Jong

Continuing with the Moy Yat series of archived videos to digital, the magnanimous Sifu posthumously bestows his knowledge from what was once a closed-door audience to an open source platform to impart his wisdom and experience.

Put pen to paper as the late figurehead of East Coast Wing Chun pens his ideas to the easel.
