    I think the problem with understanding Chi Sao is the same problem with many things in Wing Chun. Things are taken too literally. I just came home from class tonight and there was a guy who thought...

    The way it was explained to me, Sil Lim Tao teaches you what Wing Chun should feel like. The stance, the structure, the centreline, the forward energy, etc. It's a feeling that you want to be...

    In theory, it will work. But in actual practice, it won't. Think about it. If you're both making the same mistake, you'll do the drills and there will be no one to correct you. And since you're both...
