  1. Are you 100% positive that the power of Wing Chun techniques come from the wrist? I've trained for less than a year, but for certain the emphasis has always been on the elbow.

    Same with Bong Sao. You don't turn your arm from the wrist. You let the elbow go forward (the way it was going, until someone interrupted your punch), but because your arm from the elbow forward is basically shut down, it rotates naturally.

  2. How I wish I could met you Shifu

  3. It's definitely important how to do the bong…


  4. this is an excellent video. You clearly had a very good teacher.

  5. Nice videos subscribe I am a Cartoon Animator..

  6. Elbow is a stronger joint, and the principles in Wing Chun emphasize the elbow, even the forms do that. Turning your wrist send a signal to opponent who is in contact with you where as the sudden burst from elbow will totally get him confused and he finds himself in a bad situation. Your videos are interesting but I do not agree with Bong Sao energy projection with you. Bong Sao is a full arm technique and for sure uses elbow and shoulder more than the wrist. I liked your Heun-Sao video better than this one. May be it is because Heun Sao is really using the writs and you are in love with the wrist motions. I learned to flow energy from the bigger gear to the smaller ones. :)… Thanks for your videos SiFu. 

  7. Very nice explanation and demonstration of Bong Sao as WC practitioners know translates to "wing arm,"referring to a  crane's wing. This is the basics of Lok Su. Without the proper technique, Dan Chi, (single sticky hand) ,and Sheung Chi Sau (double sticky hands) would be both ineffective especially if your elbow were to break and fall down or into you.

    What people who don't practice WC don't appreciate is that Bong Sao teaches the student concept of the centre line and understanding of gates and body proportion.

  8. Where do you teach from? You seem very very very good.

  9. how i wish these pre planned techniques work in unplanned random shower of strikes in a street

  10. Bong sao is mainly supposed to be just transition technique for swithing force from one hand to another.
    Making bong sao as primary defense for first opponents high punch is very, VERY dangerous and very risky and can end up with your fast defeat if opponent knows what to do ….

  11. he sucks you cant even see in the video how is the right bong he cuts it in the right time

  12. learning a technique is hard but to teach is harder, good job, and thanks.

  13. i acually go to this guys classes!

  14. I thought this same question immediately after watching. Does anyone have an answer? I've also been learning that in the absence of your opponent's pressure, you should be shooting forward (1st principle).

  15. is he in america?

  16. i have a question. when i learned WT, i was told that WT's principle includes having sort of a spring- loaded in your body, and by consistantly having the pressure, whenever the enemy's hand is gone, our hands should be automatically chopping the opponent's neck from bong sao. your instructions seem to be a little different even though it involves consistent energy. is it just difference in branches of WT?

  17. Beautiful instructor!!

  18. i have never seen bong sao reflex applied against a proper punch successfully…its only useful in a grappling scenario realistically

  19. Can you please show this same explanation with the foot work?

    Thank you!

  20. Great communication skills. I'm so new to wing chun, that this energy explanations makes it a lot more exciting to learn and easier to memorize, cause now there is a reason and a purpose!

    Thank you for posting…

  21. @entertaichi from the way you explain things you sound like you have a degree in a math related subject- or have at least taken the basic physics courses- am I wrong? Either way I have enjoyed these vids.

  22. this guy obviously had a very good teacher and he brings in his own ability to explain thinks in a way everybody understands. This is actually one of the few videos I see where the Bong Sao is shown in the correct way and explained properly in his application.

  23. @akirahojo2 Try not to do bong sao by yourself.Basically non technik must work with thought but they depend on the pressure.Here i think the punch is too high (i look the elbow)so he could just hit from inside.That means no technik is needed.But this punch for me is wrong cause is like a hammer.Push front initially and then hit like hammer.In my opinion bong usually comes when the opponents elbow is low and his force go down .

  24. Just a few suggestions, don't let your elbow fly when doing lop, like tawn and fok the elbow should only be a fist distance from your body. the best way to practice lop is hold a towel under your arm pit to prevent that from happening. you'll find its much stronger having your body behind it (2nd form), don't lop with your thumb, lop is intercept-redirect using the thumb is a no no at first. also it will help get rid of your "crippled" hand so your thumb and fingers are together. take care

  25. when i saw controlling energy i was hoping u would of mixed chi into ur martial arts, if u have the art full out ready u should meditate and learn how to use ur chakra, ur natural body's energy is crucial for speed like bruce lee's and mental use

  26. @akirahojo2 btw guys i had the same problem and i know the answer and i was upset to how easy it was, all u have to do is angle ur bon sau upwards more like ur hand is higher up but same position, u wanna be at ur opponents shoulders not yours if u get what im saying. i wish i had the muscle memory i have the concept down forsure, i need to get in a dojo

  27. I think bong-sao cannot be used! Whether bong-sao happens (by the incoming force, whichs bend my limb) or not. If someone MAKES a bong-sao-like movement, it will be no wingchun from this point any more. To understand passiv wingchun-movements one must achieve a comprehension of the active aspects, like the chain-punch and the forward step. No chain no gain.

  28. when all these varous martial arts style can match upto mma fighters in the ring, thne ill be kimpressd

  29. sifu is master, right? or instructor? trainer? what?

  30. @akirahojo2 – your legs and kneecap energy must be fully developed along with your spine posture or else the bong will collapse under slight pressure, not to mention against much heavier people. If all the fundamentals are mastered, your basic techniques will be able to manage enormous pressure as they were designed to do in the first place.

  31. @akirahojo2 I believe a Lan Sau is – bar arm where a bong sau is a wing arm. If you watch the video and take notice of the elbow position in relation to the wrist I think you will see that it is a bong. A bong sao could turn into a lan sao. I feel both techniques are just transition techniques. The emphasis of both techniques is controlling and distributing the pressure. Really all of the wing chun movements are meant to flow together smoothly.

  32. @entertaichi thanks mate, I have to give this a few tries (concentrating on the wrist rotation rather than the shoulders). How would you differentiate Lan Sau compared to Bong Sau. In some parts of this video series, the Sifu uses the Bong Sau vertically, isn't that essentially a Lan Sau?

  33. @akirahojo2 Hi I am not the sifu in the video , I am the guy being used in the video 🙂

    I am 5'8 I teach guys who are much taller than me and never had a problem using a bong. Because the way the bong is structured your opponents energy is being displaced so it isn't directly going into you. Rather its more like going to the left or right of you. So you never feel the pressure coming down on you. What you describe can really only happen if you are using your shoulder and not your wrist.

  34. A good insight. My question: can bong sau still be used against an opponent who is much taller than you? It seems the contact point, especially your elbow, may not be able to sustain the amount of pressure coming from a higher position going downwards. Can you do an example of bong sau being used against a much taller opponent?
