Wing Tsun Kung Fu - Chi-Sau sections

Please find the video for the following blog post here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tv3Vzhd9n5Q
In the video I am showing one example out of each one of the 19 Wing Tsun Chi-Sau sections.

During last Wednesday’s class, we once again reviewed the 1st section of Wing Tsun Chi-Sau. I never get tired of it. For me it's a key section that lays the foundation for any other Chi-Sau training.

Even the most advanced techniques or drills, applications don't really matter ...
- if your structure is not connected,
- if you lose too quickly your balance,
- if you resist too long and/or too much,
- if your timing is off,
- if you misjudge the distance,
- if you generate power too early or too late,
- if your foot- and hand-techniques do not connect,
- if your actions are not fluid enough,
- if you are not mobile enough, even in the smallest space,
- if you yield too early and/or too much (and into the wrong direction!),
- if the purpose behind the design of your positions doesn't come to life,
- if the often misunderstood and misinterpreted idea of the WT centerline is not present,
For now, we keep this list short! :-)

Using the number 3 as an optimum example we also touched upon ...
- the three Pak-Sau/Punch attacks of the first section
- distance of the attacks (far apart, medium, close)
- technical positions while connecting with the concepts behind SNT and CK, even BT
- height of attacks delivered (low, middle, high)
- direction of the attack, inside and outside ... and fake(-out)
- inside and outside responses
- stance training of SNT (Siu-Nim-Tau)
- horizontal movement of CK (Cham-Kiu)
- vertical movement of BT (Biu-Tze)

Once we went through above points, about ten minutes had already passed!
