The first episode of Vahva Fitness Podcast! This time we are talking about the legitimacy of Wing Chun Kung Fu, what is the real purpose of ancient Fighting Qigong and Miyamoto Musashi's Five Attitudes of Striking.
We just launched a new Vahva Fitness Podcast.
Now available on Spotify (Vahva Fitness Podcast), YouTube and soon on other platforms.
We already filmed several episodes but to celebrate the Chinese New Year, the first one is largely about Eastern martial arts, Qigong and Kung Fu.
Inside this podcast, we will touch on:
Everything is recorded in a professional studio and we can promise that the episodes are only about to get better.
It’s time to spread the message of authentic Ancient Kung Fu and ego-free training methods and philosophy.
Enjoy the first episode!
PS. It's officially the Year of Water Rabbit! To celebrate the Chinese New Year, all courses by the grandmaster Jiang Yu Shan are on SALE at WarriorNeigong.com
While I normally love your content and admire the beauty of Eero’s movement and martial journey… on this occasion I’m compelled to say I’m not a fan.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but as a Wing Chun practitioner I can tell from your comments that you haven’t actually tried the art first hand, just watched a lot of videos of poor practitioners.
To be fair, I actually agree with much of what you both said. 99% of what you see on YouTube of Wing Chun is rubbish. And that’s coming from someone who loves the art.
So much of what is portrayed IS robotic and rigid with no head movement or mobility. They only use a fraction of their body’s potential power, only using the arms, not the body. Never truly pressure test it against other styles. And getting the range and intent completely wrong.
But the fault lies with the poor depth of knowledge and martial attributes, and lack of fighting experience of the teachers and students shown, not Wing Chun.
To decry a whole art without trying it for yourself is no different to keyboard warriors who simply say ‘That’s rubbish, it won’t work’.
There is soooo much more than centerline, chain punching and “funny hand movements”.
If you want to see Wing Chun applied for real I have the privilege of being taught by someone who is a true master of Wing Chun. He applies it based not on theory but a lifetime of numerous real life street and challenge fights with no-rules, rounds or refs.
If you’re open minded (which I think you are) his name is Master James Sinclair of the UK Wing Chun Kung Fu Association.
Watch his videos on YouTube and reach out to him to speak with him on your podcast. Better yet go and train with him and see for your self the true beauty and brutality of the art, taught by someone head and shoulders above all others, who has walked the walk, and shunned the spotlight.
As lovers of movement and mastery of body he will blow your mind and change your martial life.
