4th and 1st TG WingTczun
Sifu Remko Steffers from Tilburg received the 4th TG in WingTczun on 7 November 2015.
Jeroen Lourens received the 1st TG WingTczun on 22 November. On the same day Martijn Wessels and Harm Grote Beverborg received their 12th student degree.
Sifu Edgar Zimmermann explains and demonstrates some basics of the 6 ½ Point Long Pole (Luk Dim Boon Kwun) of the Wing Chun/ Wing Tsun/ Weng Chun Great Grandmasters Tang Yik and Yip (Ip) Man – Enschede/ NL, 28/8/2015 – published on 15/11/2016.
Similarities between the Long Pole and the European (Historical European Martial Arts) Quarterstaff (short staff/ half staff).
“The Short staffe is the best weapon against all manner of weapons.” — George Silver, Paradoxes of Defence – 1599.
“For a man that rightly understands it, may bid defiance and laugh at any other weapon.” — Zachary Wylde, English Master of Defence – 1711.
People who say that the double knifes are superior to the long pole should think again.
Chi Kwun (sticky pole exercise), like some of the Ip Man lineages practice (Leung Ting and others), is wrong and redundant.
