Wing Chun Gworr Sau MasterClass

By James Sinclair | In MasterClasses | on October 9, 2017

Sparring Master Class

On Sunday October 15th from 1-4pm the UK Wing Chun Assoc. Founder and Chief Instructor, Master James Sinclair, will be conducting his Wing Chun Gworr Sau MasterClass.

Gworr Sau is the Art of crossing the bridge in Wing Chun Kung Fu.  Crossing the Bridge refers to the ability to beak down or pass the guard hands of your training partner.  It is a unique, specialised skill that is entails good footwork, distance judgement, balance and timing.

With over 40 years experience in Wing Chun, Master James Sinclair will be using this vast experience to help students to understand how to apply the forms and frames of the Art in a dynamic manner that is suitable to sparring.

This seminar will also be held in Birmingham in November so no need travel vast distances for this one if that is closer.

The event will be held at the UK Wing Chun Kung Fu Assoc. National HQ in Rayleigh Essex.

The cost is only £55 and will bring your training closer to completeness.

Please book in advance as the HQ is small (we prefer intimate!) and can only accommodate a few students.

The seminar is one of the most enjoyable and active seminars available.  This is a must attend event if you are serious about your training.

Sparring Seminar

 

On Sunday 15th OCT 2017 Master Sinclair will be teaching the drills, skills, thrills and sparring methodolgy that helped him use Wing Chun very effectively over the last 4 decades, and helped him develop some of the most talented Wing Chun students today.  the Wing Chun Sparring Seminar is a must do event if you wish to grow as a Wing Chun Martial Artist.

As a system for self defence Wing Chun is world class. Made famous in gang fights on the rooftops of Hong Kong it is also a dynamic fighting system. What people find hard is translating the theories, training methodologies such as empty hand forms, wooden dummy and sticky hands into Western Sport based ‘Sparring Practice’.

Wing Chun Kung Fu is a style with an idiosyncratic approach. The problem with such a unique style is that some even some of the most recognised martial artists in the world, such as Dan Inosanto senior student, Guru Rick Young, state that even after many years experience in Wing Chun that they love the training but simply don’t ‘get it’ when it comes to sparring.

Some Wing Chun schools simply do not spar and feel that it is unhelpful to real self defence. The UK Wing Chun Assoc. teachers and students could not disagree more. If you have any questions relating the the efficacy of modern training and the approach of James Sinclair, then this Sparring Seminar will place you in no doubt about how you should approach your training.

Quite some time past a former student of the UK Wing Chun Kung Fu Assoc, Kamon’s Founder and Chief Instructor Kevin Chan, made the perfect statement that encapsulates James Sinclair’s thoughts too. He stated that Wing Chun is the only art he has trained where you can strike a person and still be told you were wrong! May we add for clarity his thoughts were based in his experiences after he had left the UKWCKFA….

In Hong Kong in 2005 the greatest compliment given to James Sinclair by many of the Masters gathered for the 2d World Conference was that they felt James was the only person they had seen to be able to ‘Bridge The Gap’ and make the link between Forms and Fighting.

To enable Wing Chun Sparring it important to realise that you will need to develop an ability to work with the longer guard at times and it should look very, very skilful and beautiful when two practitioners of the same school meet. However, there should be considerable ability to deal with all other Arts and, therefore, a focus on developing the ‘Attributes’ and core skills that ALL martial artists should have.

If you love your training under Sifu Abid Mahmood, Sifu Nick MartinSifu Mark Phillips or any other UKWCKFA teacher, just remember, it is James Sinclair’s ability to coach and get the best out of any student that makes him one of the very best Wing Chun teachers available.  This is your chance to truly enhance your ability in the Art of Wing Chun Kung Fu.

If you wish to take your skills to a higher level,  call NOW to confirm your place on 07860 276923.

Total Cost £55.00
