During a 2015 Seminar Tour away from the headquarters in Sydney Australia, Sifu Rick Spain coaches Ipswich students on the finer developments of his Wing Chun fighting system. This is that workshop!
Until now, never released footage on essential concepts and conditioning for kicks. You will learn how to front, side, round and hook kick correctly, how to string together combinations, kick on the off-beat and perform change-ups.
And of course, a good range of motion certainly helps…
Everyone loves the Wooden Dummy. There is a great deal of nostalgia around this training apparatus. In this Short Course you will learn all of the dummy sets, with views from multiple angles, on and off the dummy, plus techniques taken from the dummy sets and put in applications.
For the next level of your Wooden Dummy training see the Wooden Dummy Seminar which demonstrates our integration of footwork into the dummy sets.
Trapping Hands is part of the Chi Sau family and a principle/strategy within our system of Wing Chun that we refer to as “capture, trap, immobilise”.
You will be learning how to trap arms, legs, do 2 on 1’s, change levels, sweeps, throws and chokes.
This is an insight into our trapping game.
Welcome to the short course in Advanced Double Arm Chi Sau techniques.
Chi Sau and Trapping Hands are a unique training method of Red Boat Wing Chun. In this Short Course your will learn the essential foundations for both skill sets.
Blocks, footwork and movement are the absolute essentials to your defensive game revisit these foundations regularly.
Movement is simply the cornerstone of our system. The ability to close, evade, create angles and absorb impact is critical. The elements of posture, stance, centre of gravity and overall balance have to be mastered and the drills used to do this must accurately reflect your needs in combat.
Movement also refers to slipping, ducking, weaving, changing levels and simply anything that allows you to evade or minimise injury while giving you the option to counter.
We must remember Wing Chun is a boxing style with a relatively limited kicking arsenal on the street and therefore needs to be addressed on some levels like a boxing system. But unlike a boxing system we have options to grab, pin, push or trap, which require a different set of developmental drills.
Even though the battlefield is in a constant state of flux and our guard will change according to our needs it is important to address our opponent in the correct stance: feet slightly wider than our shoulders and body angled at 45°, evenly balanced, but with weight not sitting too heavily on the heels and knees bent, basically an athletic stance – ready for movement in any direction.
This weapons workshop was filmed in February 2017 and covers: baton, (kali) sticks and nunchaku. The footage is edited so that you can train along with the video/seminar.

Welcome to the Urban Survival Seminar! This is a fun seminar filled with absolutely essential information. Enjoy.
The most up-to-date seminar on the wooden dummy including advances in footwork developed since the filming of the wooden dummy short course.
At last it’s time for the BLADE. This year we will have a whole new set of skills and drills. Plus we will be introducing the deadly Karambit developed in Sumatra and representing a tigers claw it went from being a farm implement to being weaponised due to conflicts with neighbouring counties made famous in Indonesia by the Bugis warriors. It was considered an ultimate close quarter weapon.

This workshop was conducted on Sunday 9th February 2020 to raise funds for WIRES. $240 was raised and donated to the Emergency Fund to support their wildlife rescue services as a result of the bushfires late 2019/early 2020. If you would like to donate to their Emergency Fund you can do so here.
Thank you for supporting Australian wildlife!
Now… the REAL history of Wing Chun
Welcome to an in depth study of the knife. Please be disillusioned by the fact that knife fighting is dangerous for all involved. There are no real “safe” disarms, but there are varying degrees of good, better and best. As with all of our training we do not promote violence, but choose to have the skills required to cope if violence is thrust upon us.
Welcome to your in-depth seminar on all three empty hand forms in the Wing Chun system.
Sil Lum Tao; Chum Kil; and Bil Gee
While not graded on the Butterfly Sword until after achieving Gold belt, this is a fun form to learn and a uniquely Wing Chun weapon.
The first two sections of this Seminar are from a recent seminar at Red Boat Kung Fu HQ. The final three sections are archived footage from a much older seminar but still relevant today!

This course was a game-changer for me that altered my diet, training technique and attitude. The fitness test sorted out the wheat from the chaff and set goals for all of us. My diet shift caused tensions at home. “Do you want to die?” But ignoring the derision and dire warnings, surprise surprise, I quickly started to lose flab around my waistline. Amazing! Excellent information I would never have just stumbled across otherwise. And a much needed motivational kick along. All delivered with Sifu Rick’s unique humour which always make the point absolutely clear.
Over the years strength training and nutrition has been hit and miss for me (as it is for most people!). This course gave me a deeper understanding of what I need to be doing to perform at my best and helped me to track the results. I had strength gains, decreased body fat, increased lean body weight, better sleep and a feeling of wellbeing. Sifu Rick Spain has collated decades of high performance training, research and teaching to develop this course. Highly recommended.
As a former student I love Sifu’s Endless knowledge and philosophy on combat.
