✅ Chum Kiu, the second form in Wing Chun,
focuses on the bodies coordinated movement of your body mass and entry techniques to “bridge” the gap between you and your opponent.
✅ The second level of Chum Kiu
is designed to give you the skills to break your opponent's defenses down while moving in close range, disrupting their structure and balance to utilize your Wing Chun repertoire even more.
✅ Chum Kiu teaches
that once the defense is broken to launch your attack with a series of elbows and knees. This allows you to strike once the defense is broken by launching a series of elbows and knees.
✅ These particular techniques
require you to step in with force behind them while twisting your torso and hips, bringing you inside their reach almost in grappling range.
✅ Your elbows are used for blocking while bridging the gap.
This can often lead to your opponent breaking or fracturing their hand. If your opponent throws a kick, raise the leg to use the knee to block.
✅ This is a demonstration of how Wing Chun’s defense can be utilized as an offensive measure, causing damage to the attacker while simultaneously blocking.
✅ Chum Kiu teaches how to regain stability if your structure is lost while moving in your stance.
✅ The results of any fight may never go as planned, so if you lose your defensive integrity you need to know how to regain your foundation and composure to be able to get back into the fight.
