Revision of the jab plus how to pull and punch using both sides of the shoulders. Cutting off the ring with up and over – over and up step, plus a stamina round at the end.

The title says it all, this workout is from a livestream in April last year and is about dealing with a side kick on the inside with a counter strike to finish. We also do set 6 on the Wooden Dummy, Chum Kil and a Tabata style workout.

Greetings to all the Red Boat Kung Fu members and welcome to 2021.

As 2020 slips into the rear view mirror, we can now concentrate on the task at hand and that is the continuing evolution of our system, the development of elite level instructors and of course helping you on your martial journey.

As all instructors are aware I have redeveloped the entire grading structure to more accurately reflect where we are in our evolution. This will provide you with some necessary and exciting challenges and lift our game across the board. Gradings will increase to every 2 months as every second grade will be Tip Grading which is now much more comprehensive and is compulsory before a belt change to ensure quality control. Obviously you will need time to get a handle on new material, so grading dates are at the discretion of each branch instructor. Starting with Tips and finally ending the year on a belt change.

For the Headquarters here in Sydney, there is also now a 3 tier membership package – standard, silver and gold – with corresponding benefits and discount. These will be explained in another message.

Finally I want to discuss the Wing Chun Blueprint. For the past 45 years I have tested and measured this amazing system. Now each aspect of it has a blueprint attached to it. Look at the grading structure as the big picture blueprint. But every part of it has its corresponding blueprint. My motivation for this was to ensure everyone and I mean everyone has the tools necessary to achieve excellence. All you have to do is turn up and put in a big effort, we and your coaches will do the rest.

So, once again welcome back to the mat. See you soon.

Kuen Yao Sum Faat,

Sifu Rick Spain

Dealing with and countering with kicks – leg checks, rear stomps/oblique kicks, low side kicks and crescent kicks – all in this video, with Bil Gee to finish.

Encompassed in the Wing Chun Blue Print is an impregnable defence. This live stream / class video is a study of Wing Chun’s unique defence strategy, also known as “box defence”. This class is about checking and blocking.

Live streamed class, detialing the side kick plus drills and exercises to improve your kicks in general. All a MUST for your kicking game.

Breakdown of the new Level 2 grading structure under the new/expanded curriculum. Plus, a mat chat discussing the four virtues of Courage, Temperance, Justice and Wisdom …and overall, being a good person.

Some sample striking combo additions to the new grading structure!

A quick Mat Chat regarding the new grading curriculum being implemented this year and a welcome back message from Sifu Rick Spain.

This video includes a discussion on what has influenced our knife fighting curriculum, the Sil Lum Tao form, then Wooden Dummy to set 6 and Baton revision including the 15 angles of attack and box defence.

PS: For those unaware while side kicks in set 4 are demonstrated as low kicks, they are in fact meant to be mid-section side kicks. Sifu’s hip injury is currently preventing him from kicking that high.
