Traditional Martial Arts vs the Movies (Part 2)

If you do a jump kick, and you teach the purpose on how to “commercial martial arts someone out with it” while showing the 100% full original war/street purpose, I applaud you. If you throw weapons, but you do it because you’re throwing them through an opponent I applaud you. I applaud any and all men and women who teach or seek out such a teacher, that want to instruct them in the “original ways” to survive using a traditional martial art. I also applaud and respect those who are truthful about their teachings and tell a prospective student that by no means will the fancy move they are learning or that throwing or twirling a weapon in the air or around your fingers works on the street, but instead telling them, “Hey, it’s fun isn’t it?”

Commercial Martial Arts -vs- Traditional Martial Arts (part 2)

To all of you out there who train hard through respect, honor and dedication I bow to you and ask for more commercial martial arts. God knows we need it.  We need commercial martial arts more support for all truth bringers within the martial arts from both sides of the fence.

It takes a real hardcore person with a passion to want it, search for the purpose behind it and to learn ALL of it, asking what every moves purpose was for survival.  Original martial arts are not easy and not fast food, they are “Kung Fu”.  Take the Original Karate from Okinawa Japan, Muay Thai from Thailand, Taekwondo from Korea, Brazilian JiuJitsu from Brazil and in its Original Art form its all “Kung Fu”.

No not because I’m claiming they all came from Kung Fu!  No its because  Kung Fu means Time, Dedication and Hardwork and are you not then doing Kung Fu when you practice and teach your style?  I bet you didn’t realize we were Kung Fu brother’s did you?  Well we are so accept it!

So thus commercial martial arts if we are brothers in the art of survival, should we not support one another?  We are not rivals we are family, and we train towards the safety and protection of the ones we love.  The majority of individuals don’t want to push there body for years under rigorous training that bruises the body, toughens the mind and makes one see through the fancy maneuvers of commercial martial arts Hollywood film drama.  Many want to be Bruce Lee without the hard work of Bruce Lee.  A body and mind filled with purpose doesn’t need to put down another art.  Instead of fake or misleading information or techniques. There are many school which have commercial martial arts. Allow the minds of others to become purposeful otherwise they are like sheep and unfortunately they will not see past the hair in their eyes. Stay alert, relaxed and poised on the results at hand, you will succeed you are purpose driven.

For our school with traditions of honor, respect, Chinese cultural heritage are all encompassed within the art of Wing Chun.  Wing Chun is my style of choice just like yours may be another, but we are family in one mindset, self preservation and the preservation of others.  More than just kicking and punching Wing Chun for me and those I teach is an art where students can find and grow in the original intentions of their previous masters.  An enlightenment through reality based survival and increasing endurance and history.

Traditional Martial Arts vs the Movies (Part 1)

No traditional martial art, no matter what its origins, had fancy and ineffective moves. It was created for survival and for the quickest and deadliest moves for battle in that culture, terrain, and for the immediate enemy. Traditional martial arts training refers to training in a martial art that is rooted in the tenets set forth by the original master of the art. There were no triple somersaults, no throwing and spinning of weapons in the air, as this would cause instant death on the battlefield.

For the personal goals of the student even a traditional martial art school that has minimal reality effective moves in it could still meet the needs of the student.  Especially if this student is wanting to learn slow paced techniques for stress management, fancy or flashy that have the  impression of traditional martial art.  These types of schools seek to boost confidence without the reality, pounding and harsh training related to the true intentions of their original traditional martial art.  I have no problem with martial art facilities that teach these techniques as everyone is not looking for reality or combat training.  Though I do take up an accord against ones that tell prospective students they teach self defense when in truth they hardly scratch the surface.  In order to get that student to join they tell them whatever they want to hear and show a few “effective movements”  though once the student joins they are taken for a ride.  This gives people the false confidence and the impression that they know and can use real life saving techniques where in reality these techniques could get them killed.  Thus honesty and respect are big concerns when it comes to practical application.

Original and traditional martial art instructors that show their arts original combative intent have not taken the road most traveled but rather have decided to make and teach you without compromise.  The main stream of commercialized techniques and skills taught in schools can string a student through hoops instead of practical application.

After talking with many instructors of various schools the conclusion most have come to is that they truly believe that the student couldn’t handle real training.  Many have even said that speaking about the harshness of a street fight, knife attack or rape situation would lose them more money than make them.  Thus they should be fed fancy moves, false confidence and almost no practical street purpose and weapons that fly in the air only to be caught and spun on wrists and fingers.

I wish to disagree with many of these practices and schools but unfortunately I have seen these schools fill there classes with hundreds of students.  None of these students ever asking or questioning the logic in this type of training.    Most people want easy answers and to be told they are hardcore.  No matter what your style, once you start to train students in the original arts intent, it is extremely hard to keep all those interested.

Super Saiyan Effect – martial arts

Super Saiyan Effect – martial arts

Currently I am a 1st level Wing Chun instructor at Sifu Och’s Lakeland Wing Chun. He teaches real-life combat, self-defense as passed on to him directly through the Ip Man lineage.

Super Saiyan – at Sifu Och Wing Chun Martial Arts
“Don’t try this at home”

The Super Saiyan Effect – I can honestly say that I have had the opportunity to experience the Super Saiyan effect, so to speak. My body wasn’t glowing like the cartoon characters in Dragon Ball Z and I have no hair, so my hair didn’t turn bright yellow and there were no streaks of lightning emanating from my body. In this situation, I let my instincts and techniques take over. This is when Wing Chun survivor mode kicked in.

On October 15, a gentleman came to our studio and towards the end of class I had the opportunity to spar, full contact with him. I wasn’t nervous or apprehensive yet I had an air of confidence about myself that was hidden. My opponent was slightly taller than me and he had a clear-cut weight advantage than I did. Super saiyan have many effect of martial arts. On the onset of the fight, I didn’t know what to expect so staying in my 50/50 Wing Chun stance helped me see any attack that would be thrown. As soon as he moved I let loose a barrage of chain punches and elbows towards his face. He had a protective helmet on, but I choose not to wear one. I figured if I got hit in the face, then I deserved it. I still wasn’t 100% sure of what I was doing at the time but I kept my face protected all the while landing punches towards his chest and face areas.

Then the inevitable happened. This is what I have dubbed, the Super Saiyan moment. It’s the point in time where you lose track of what you are doing and instincts immediately take over. Once my opponent knew he couldn’t land any attacks on me, he decided to try to take me to the ground. If you are grabbed, it’s pretty natural for one to try and out- muscle an opponent and honestly, that’s what I felt like doing. Yet at that instance, I lost track of what happened next. That moment was a blur to me but as described by my Sifu, my whole body changed and he said he could tell by my facial expression that a “light” clicked on. I went into Super Saiyan mode. As my opponent grabbed me to take me down, I first made sure my stance was grounded for my protection and then I let loose a flurry of punches towards his face, mixed with elbows, knees towards his stomach and kicks towards his legs, until he let go and backed off. That’s my Super Saiyan mode. It was a rush of pure energy where nothing but Wing Chun attacks came out as each punch, elbow and leg attack hit its mark.

I stayed in this mode for a bit longer and I was totally focused on how I wanted to attack. My opponent did mention during the break in fighting that since I didn’t have a helmet on, he felt compelled not to hit me in the face. I told him that if I got hit in the face then I deserved it. In the next round of sparring, he made the mistake of aiming towards my face, which honestly made me a bit upset. I thought “how dare he throw a punch at my face”. Needless to say, the next 20 to 25 seconds was a complete blur, and after talking to my Sifu and sihings, they said that my opponent was rendered helpless and the only thing keeping him up was the wall.

I share all of this for a reason. There are times that one may get frustrated with their training in Wing Chun. It does take alot of work and effort. Sifu Och makes sure that we have the best available knowledge of real-life combat techniques. We may get frustrated with our training at times as we may not get the flow of combinations that we are taught. But trust me, in time, you all will have a Super Saiyan Wing Chun moment where you let your body react and every Wing Chun combination that you had trouble with will end up protecting you and someone else. I encourage all students to train harder in Sifu Och’s system.
