Sifu Nick Martin and Sifu Mark Phillips worked closely to arrange a special event to celebrate the milestone 21 year anniversary of the UKWCKFA. Over the years the UKWCKFA have produced very many well respected Wing Chun students and teachers. This event was particularly enjoyable as a number of our former instructors were also in attendance.
There were approx. 300 students in attendance with the groups divided into 3 groups. One group trained under the tutelage of Abid Mahmood Sifu who covered back to the wall fighting. The second group were under the auspices of Eric Wilson Sifu who delved into the use of the guard hand and touched upon ‘entry techniques’. The last group were under the careful guidance of Matt Tucker who gave a good insight into hand skills against the blade.
Interspersed throughout the day were very many demonstrations by the students. The demonstrations have been put on a DVD and they total over 45 mins alone. Every aspect of Wing Chun is seen at some level. There are also interviews with a few of the senior teachers giving an insight into their own training, motivation and ambitions. The interviews are full of biographical footage of the teachers in their early days. A great inspiration to anyone wanting to embark on the road to Wing Chun mastery.
We will be posting some clips on the web site but can’t post them all!
Below are just a few of the kind comments from the day.
