Re: Wing Chun King Fu

That's OK. Robert was planning to do a Shakespeare production with Mel Gibson at one time. He also appeared in Ian MacKellon's film "Richard III". But he says he is not very interested in Shakespeare.

A VERY BIG APOLOGY

I am only just catching my egregious typo. Writing fast. Obviously I meant KUNG Fu, not KING. Apologies to Mr. D and his Sifu.

Re: Wing Chun King Fu

Did it just arrive now? I remember when I posted it you were going to pre-order it. That was a few months ago.

Fiona,
I recommend finding a teacher (Sifu). If you are in decent shape, you'll be fine. Be sure your teacher has the proper lineage so that you know you're being taught correctly. A book is good for info and philosophy, but it can't really take you through the forms. Perhaps a video if you're really nervous about joining a class...but most places will let you sign on for a month at a time, so if it turns out that it isn't for you, it won't cost you too much.
I'm studying with a great Sifu and really enjoy it! I go 4 times a week - it's also a great extra workout on top of my daily....
I say give it a shot! You know, Wing Chun was developed by a woman and is specifically designed to give you a strategy to overcome the size and power of your opponent.
Good luck!

Re: Wing Chun Kung Fu

Hey
I judt haf my first lesson of Wing Chun. It was great! I play soccer now for 8 years but I was never the perfect sport for me because you have games every sunday and such. I always wanted to do some martial arts but never had the courage or enough determination to finally try it. When I read RDJ does it, I finally told myself to just try it. So right now I have to decode between soccer and wing chun. Both won't work out since soccer is already 4 times a week....
What lineage did you choose? I read that Robert is taught traditional wing chun coming from william cheung. You don't have this lineage close to me but there is applied wing chun from lineage duncan leung. Both come from yip man. What do you think about this?
And could you also send me the foreword of the book to my email milena_kuhn@yahoo.de? That would be great. Maybe I will buy it too!
Thanks a lot for your thoughts
Love
Milena
