One of the defining techniques within the Wing Chun Kung Fu System is without a doubt the Wing Chun straight punch. The movie Ip Man brought the Wing Chun punch into the spotlight again.
Wing Chun Chain Punch
Wing Chun Chain Punch is a simple but powerful technique. It is a series of fast and straight punches aimed at the opponent’s center line.
The punch is designed to be interrupted and strike with maximum force. This is achieved by the use of a straight and loose wrist. However, excessive muscle contraction can reduce the speed of the stroke. Consequently, it is important to train to have a strong heart and a powerful body.
If you are a beginner, you should learn the basics of chain punching. With practice, you will develop significant power.
To develop this power, you should focus on developing the right habits, including timing and relaxation. Practice these techniques with a partner to get a feel for how each move impacts the target. You should also make sure that you are never static.
A good wing Chun chain punching practitioner should be able to deliver multiple punches quickly, but not overextend. In addition, the punching arm should be slightly retracted.
The technique is very effective at close range, but it is not effective at long distances. Nonetheless, you can still learn how to use the chain punch in conjunction with other effective Wing Chun techniques.
Unlike the jab, the wings punch is designed to be interrupted, which means that it will not be over-extended. Therefore, it won’t be easy to counter. As a result, it is a great weapon to use in self-defense.
NDN And The Wing Chun Straight Punch
The WC straight punch is one of the punches that has been integrated into NDN. Like most all of the techniques we teach, there is a time and place to use a specific technique. Depending on your positioning and the energy you are feeling will let you know what exactly you should be doing at the moment.
Used in the right moment using a wing Chun straight punch is very effective.
