Master the Wing Chun Double Punch

Wing Chun Kung Fu is known for being an extremely fast martial art. Allowing the practitioner to counter and intercept in the blink of an eye. Following these with a continuous flow that can utterly stun and surprise most, if not all opponents. Within this flow is a special technique that Wing Chun uses that can cause an immediate concussion if done properly. You need to master the Wing Chun Double Punch.

Most styles popular styles, Karate, Boxing, Tae Kwon Do, Muai Thai, alternate their punches typically from left to right to create combinations. For instance in boxing: Jab, Cross, Hook, Upper Cut, is a very basic combination taught from the beginning. From there, further combinations can be created. To do this, a practitioner must turn his body away to complete the strike. The body is then rotated back into the strike from the opposite shoulder to allow the other hand to strike. While of course, not every combo alternates at every strike, that is the bulk of the attacks.

One of the main differences with Wing Chun, is that while in some instances also alternating between the left and right hand, it does not twist the body. Wing Chun keeps both hips forward allowing both hands to stay in range. When a punch is thrown the entire body lurches forward to give power to the strikes. You can also see this with the Wing Chun whipping punch.

A Double Punch Concussion

When the brain collides with the skull, a concussion usually follows. Imagine a strike that causes the brain to rattle inside the skull resulting in extreme damage. That is the purpose of the Double Punch. With the Wing Chun Stance allowing both hands to be forward the Double Punch can now be used. It is shaped by placing one fist at the wrist crease line of the first fist. Since the elbows are kept in tight, it gives the shape of two “straight” punches lined one behind the other.

Both fists travel out together until contact. Once the first fist has made contact it is lowered and immediately followed by the second fist. Since the entire body is thrown into the strike both hits have the full force of the body. The initial strike rocks the head back and the second causes the rattle due to the quickness between the strikes.

At Sifu Och Wing Chun the Double Punch is taught early on. They are difficult to understand and train but once understood they can be placed into almost any combination to compliment and enhance an attack. They are quick and powerful, and most of all effective. Along with the attack capabilities The structure of the double punch also allows for a quick and easy cover should an uppercut or body shot come from the opponent. Since the elbows are kept tight the arms are able to sink in and protect the ribs very quickly. With the ability to throw this type of strike at any point in a fight it gives the right person, with the right training, a chance against any attacker. This attack allows one to fire a powerful attack from a defensive starting point.


Finally, the only way to develop your double punch is resistance. Using a heavy bag for raw power and focus mitts and a partner for speed, timing, and distance, the Double Punch can be fully developed. Just like boxers learn how to strike right from day one, so it is with Sifu Och Wing Chun. To many schools get lost in forms, and drills and forget to hit! Find a good bag and friend. Train hard and long. If you can learn the Double Punch, develop it well, you can actually say that you have a punch that’s faster than most others!

6th Dan Taekwondo Master, Now WING CHUN!!!

6th Dan Taekwondo Master, Now WING CHUN!!!

I had 28 years training and achieving in Taekwondo, a Master in my own right as a 6th Dan.

I was very impressed with Sifu Och’s Now Wing Chun from day one, you will be too.

Taekwondo Master chooses Sifu Och Wing Chun in Lakeland Florida

I trained to be able to defend and protect myself and my loved ones.  I know you’ll hear the so called EXPERTS and MASTERS talk about how you train to (not fight) whatever that is suppose to mean, but its not reality.  Yes you should avoid any and all conflicts but if you can’t avoid them then you should be able to devastate your attacker or attackers.

My last 2 to 3 years in Taekwondo was very unfulfilling I felt inadequate in fighting, think about that 28 years training and felling inadequate and I had trained under some real masters and experts.  I was in a martial art that had very little contact.  Most kicks and punches were done in the air with no contact.  There was never any force or power.  Classes were one hour, which didn’t leave a lot of time to work on (in my opinion) real fighting.  After all, this was the reason I wanted to do the martial arts, why I wanted.  To be able to defend and protect my loved ones, so I decided to  look else where.

I was told about Now Wing Chun through another Taekwondo instructor that had gone looking for something more realistic then what we had trained, he led me to Sifu Och Now Wing Chun.  I was very impressed with Sifu Och’s Wing Chun from day one.  This was what I was looking for. Now Wing Chun is a lot different than any other art.  I feel better with just one year so far of training in Wing Chun than I did with 28 years in Taekwondo.  I’ve even become more focused and more capable in my fighting.  It hasn’t been easy to ROOT, keeping your elbows in, and straight line punching but I see the benefit and the simplicity  of Wing Chun. But it’s hard to break a lifetime of bad habits but I will keep on trying.

SIFU JUSTIN OCH is very good at teaching and explaining every aspect of why a technique works or won’t work. I have learned a lot since I’ve been in Wing Chun.  But I have a lot further to go to be where I want to be.

Furthering my Testimonial to Sifu Och Wing Chun

My punches are more controlled, powerful, my body is more rooted, and I’m not (as much) off balance any more.  My power has increased and my speed is better now then it has ever been before.  I have gotten into better shape, just from Wing Chun and the blocks, punches and training.  Chain punching by the way is fantastic at building muscle mass in the arms and chest. I have lost about 10-12 lbs in one year just from working out in Wing Chun blocking and attacking.  My endurance and cardio has improved greatly.  I still have a long way to go. I would like to be able if a fight breaks out, I just want to end the fight very quickly.  I also want to be able to be good enough to not be hit that easily.

My endurance, power, speed and cardio has improved greatly but I still have a long way to go.
