WCI Review – Wayne Belonoha – WBVTS – Chi Sau Styles Seminar

The hallmark cornerstone of Wing Chun is, without question, Chi Sau. The system’s unique training method offers one the platform to unlock the potential of structure, technique, and application of developing reflex reactions so that the practitioner may “Understand what strategy to choose and how to apply that to your enemy,” submits the video’s presenter Sifu Wayne Belonoha.

Sifu Belonoha prefaces the presentation’s subject of Chi Sau with specific attention to the balance of activity when one practises the relative techniques with regards to speed, positions and energy dynamics. Further pursuing the, “right amount of… defence and offence, shortrange and long-range, fluid and rigid”, that embodies the pursuits of how Wing Chun is to be applied in adherence to the fundamental tenets and concepts that the system is built upon.

Review – WCU – Wayne Belonoha – Hand Skills

Hand skills are the preeminent feature of the Wing Chun system and Sifu Wayne Belonoha explores, refines and demonstrates the specifications that develop dynamic movements built with firm foundations. Produced in conjunction with Wing Chun University, this volume, in a series of installments, is very slick in production value with on-screen footnotes relative to the, pun intended, subject at hand.

New! Wayne Belonoha’s 9 Volume Ving Tsun Blu-Ray Series

Sifu Wayne Belonoha has just released a really awesome 9 Blu-Ray disk set on Ving Tsun Kung Fu. This set is the highest-quality production of any Wing Chun instructional video we’ve even seen (and we’ve seen over 700 to date!). Sifu Wayne is an excellent instructor and his Wing Chun University course is the best-selling Wing Chun video series of all time. So naturally we were very excited about his latest project. But since Sifu Wayne has 55 video lessons and 3 books already, we were also a bit curious about what this new DVD series would cover. So we sat down with Sifu Belonoha and picked his brain. This is what we learned:

Three Perspectives Of The Wooden Dummy

The original purpose of this article was to document the differences in a handful of Wing Chun lineage’s Wooden Dummy form.  However, what I quickly learned was that this is not an easy task in a written format… And I feel it would be unfair to say that ALL Wing Chun people from XZY lineage do such and such.

The reason I bring this up is that I am quickly discovering that many high level Wing Chun people are often influenced by more than one person. For example, I believe that most WC practitioners can agree that Ip Man learned from, and was influenced by, Chan Wah Shun and Leung Bik in some shape or form.

Rather than a comparison of three different lineages, we thought it would better represent the art if we shared three different perspectives of the mok yan jong.  We asked these three well known teachers, “What can you learn from the dummy?”

Below is some of the information I collected:

Interview – Wayne Belonoha on the Wooden Man

After watching Sifu Wayne Belonoha’s series on Wooden Dummy training in Wing Chun University, I had a few questions regarding how to train on the wooden man. Sifu Wayne granted me this interview and below you will find a wealth of information about wooden dummy training.

Although you have explained many of these details in your video, what would say some of the most important things you learn from the dummy?  From beginner perspective? From an advance perceptive?
