Wing Chun Illustrated - Volume 60
“Flexibility is the willingness to adapt, or the ability to bend easily without breaking. To be flexible means that you are willing, and to be willing means that you are making a decision and a choice. Therefore, flexibility is simply a result of choosing to experience the benefits of a flexible mindset over our ego or the conditioned self. We must let go of who we used to be to experience who we are, or at least who we want to be. This speaks to the idea of bringing an ’empty cup’ to the Kwoon. Typically, the concept of bringing an empty cup to a learning situation means we are willing to suspend previous knowledge to have our cup filled from a new fountain of knowledge. This allows us to approach Wing Chun as a beginner, even if we are not. You hear many masters speak of this idea because it means that the student is teachable.”

“Wing Chun’s principles are the scientific laws that describe the natural states of the physical and mental worlds and how they work. Understanding them thoroughly will help us grasp the simplicity of the physical and mental worlds. However, they cannot work on their own. They must be applied with awareness, freely, without over-complication along with our final cornerstone, sensitivity.”
Wing Chun Illustrated - Volume 58
“The difference between thinking and ‘knowing’ is monumental in terms of efficiency. Thinking is a cognitive process that not only requires effort and time but also demands our attention and decreases our awareness. Knowing doesn’t have these problems as it doesn’t rely on a cognitive process within the moment. There are two types of knowing: wisdom created through learning and experience, and intuitive knowing created from Internal Awareness. When engaged in a fight, especially for our survival, we must bring our wisdom with us. To gain this wisdom, we use our minds beforehand to delve into Wing Chun’s theories deeply, then relate them to form, drills and application. Practising form, drills and application repeatedly with correct focus reveals greater understanding. When training under greater pressure with a non-compliant opponent, we must relate our experiences back to theory as we self-analyse, correct our mistakes and strategise. This type of knowledge allows us to develop reflexes that are based on automatic cognitive processes.”
