    thank you for the videos !!!. I am a practitioner of wing chun myself, and i must say, that all your moves are great. Every single move goes with the center line intention, they go with the momentum of all the body, without losing structure so they must have a lot of strength. you really know how to read a fight !!!. Best wishes from Chile

    Interesting tape and the use of elbows in wing chun. One thing I emphasize in combat is elbows in, meaning elbows in to the body similar to maintaining center line. This facilitates better technique and power whether punching, trapping or elbows. The jab, cross, hook and upper cut punch is essentially an elbow but hitting with the fist and vice versus, the elbow is a punch hitting with the elbow. When you think of the punch as an elbow or elbow as punch it is easier to transition punch to elbows, elbows to punch, etc. It tends to be easier to understand the generation of power from hips in an elbow, but easier to understand the generation of power from the legs in a punch. When in fact power generates from the legs and the hips simultaneously in both.

    I'm a Wing Chun practitioner ChiSaoDave and I like to train elbows in the air as well as in sparing, although dependent on where I am striking with the elbow I will pull the strike.I also like to use elbows in Chi Sao, I find this to very effective, but you have to be aware of the counter elbow if they read your elbow attack.

    Thank you. I appreciate your videos and look forward to each one.
    However this one has me puzzled… it is conventional in thinking but I don't see the wisdom in a preference for this "moving back out of elbow range to punching range" strategy. Perhaps you would be so kind as to enlighten me. If you can elbow well then why give it up? Would you mind explaining it further? I suppose it is based on the idea that the most power is available at medium range while short power if difficult. Yet why would one want to "slowly wear the guy down" and give up control at close range to hand fight at medium range? To my mind that loses control [ whereas I want to be immediately taking their balance and structure ], initiative [ I want to instantly be putting them off balance in mind, body and spirit with maximum frequency short attacks such as dropping palms and hammerfists, elbows, shoulders, head butts, pokes and gouges, rips, rakes and cranks ] and giving up space, allowing the guy to move to fight me. I want him jammed up, structure broken and off balance, unable to hit me hard at close range. Moving away just gives him a chance to fight back. I want to win ASAP… giving up ground seems to be literally a backward step. Doesn't wing chun teach closing, jamming, taking space and short power rapid striking to eyes, chin and throat? I am confused.
