Sample text

Each of these moving stances is built on the structure and principles of “Yee” Jee Keem Yeung Ma. For example, from the basic stance, 32 •RWBook1 8/19/04 1:55 PM Page 33 “Yee” Jee Keem Yeung Ma keeping the knee bent and pivoting either foot 90º out on its heel until it matches the angle of the other foot creates the Choh Ma Sitting Horse stance. The strength and balance developed in the basic stance will improve that of all Wing Chun footwork. ” Moving Stances are used in advanced drills and actual combat but are all derived from the “Yee” Jee Keem Yeung Ma.

B 13A Photos 14A and B—Two views of the Biu Sau, or “Thrusting Hand” motion. Biu Sau, unlike the other Yang blocks of Wing Chun, originates from the opposite side of the Centerline. It starts from a chambered position under the triceps muscle inside that line, shooting forward, upward and outward to derive a type of “bounce off” power from the outward snap of the wrist from its previous 45 •RWBook1 8/19/04 1:55 PM Page 46 Close Range Combat Wing Chun: Volume One “loaded-up” position.

In other words—less chest (forward) resistance would cause the Wing Chun fighter to be knocked backwards by the force of his own punch making contact or pulled off balance by a grab from either fighter, so he needs straight-on support from the stance. Less shoulder (sideward) resistance would cause him to be knocked off balance by the force of his own Yin blocking motion contacting an oncoming strike. As can be seen in A5, standing in Bai Joang ready position—feet turned 45° with the toe of the lead foot and the heel of the rear foot on the Centerline—gives the Wing Chun fighter a balanced 16" of resistance in either direction, resulting in the best possible blend of push/pull resistance.
