    It is a new year and a very exciting time for everyone as we look forward to another great year of training.

    In the spirit of openness and further education, I am inviting Sifu Robert Chu to San Diego to teach a seminar on the 29th and 30th of January 2005.

    This promises to be an exceptional seminar and I encourage everyone who can make it to sign up ASAP. I have had a lot of great response from local Wing Chun, Mixed Martial Artists and practitioners from other Traditional Chinese and Japanese systems. Committing to come to this seminar is committing to seeing a jump in your understanding and skill in the New Year.

    Since originally posting this in November, I have received some great feedback from people who have met, trained with or hosted a seminar by Sifu Chu. I hope to see you all there.

    We host seminars in Germany with Sifu Robert Chu. He is a excellent teacher and I’m looking forward to meet him next year.

    For those interested, Robert does teach an effective Wing Chun method and any one interested in progressing their knowledge is well advised to attend. I have many differences from his approach, but his approach is very good. I have known him for years and have always thought he was very knowledgeable and has very pragmatic aproach to wing chun. I have attended a mini class/seminar durring a wing chun friendship meeting and have to say I thought his stuff was functional.

    If people have a chance, they should go. Robert is one of those rare individuals who can often improve your application ability drastically in a short period of time. You won't get a specific historic lineage or super secret technique, just incredibly solid mechanics to increase power and efficiency.

    “Every time I attend a seminar taught by Sifu Chu, I find my understanding increases dramatically. Meeting him opened my eyes to the efficiency of the Wing Chun combative method.”

    Robert Chu will be teaching a two-day seminar focusing on the functional combative methods of Wing Chun Kung Fu. Sifu Robert Chu specializes in the combative application of Wing Chun and this promises to be an eye-opening seminar for anyone not familiar with his practical and direct methods. Robert is one of those rare individuals who can often improve your application ability drastically in a short period of time regardless of experience or style. This is not a seminar geared to teach a specific historic lineage or “secret” technique, just incredibly solid mechanics that work to increase power and efficiency.

    Robert Chu is an internationally respected teacher who has taught numerous Wing Chun Seminars in Germany, England and across the United States. Sifu Chu began practicing the martial arts in the early 1970s. He specializes in combat application of Wing Chun Kung Fu. He is the co-author of Complete Wing Chun, (Charles E.

    Saturday January 29th 9am – 6pm
    The focus of the first day will be the introduction of body structure and the use of the Wing Chun conceptual methods in application. Static and dynamic exercises for testing and tuning the body structure will be taught to reinforce and develop it as a functional skill set. The conceptual model will be used to break down and diagnose the anatomy of combat from the Wing Chun mindset, which will segue into the next day’s instruction on Wing Chun fighting and Chi Sao methods.

    Sunday January 30th
    The second day of the seminar will cover two main topics in detail, the Wing Chun methods of Gor Sau (Fighting) and Chi Sao (Sticking Hands) application. (***Seminar attendees are not required to have previous Chi Sau experience to gain benefit from this section***) Topics will include the Five Stages of an encounter, the Chu Sau Lei Key Word model of understanding, evaluating and focusing the combative mindset in application, and the Body structure methods of intercepting an attack, breaking structure, changing the centerline and controlling an opponent.
