Wong Shun Leung Wing Chun/Ving Tsun II – 21 First Generation Video
As I mentioned in my last article, even after his passing for 18 years now, Sigung Wong Shun Leung’s influence on Wing Chun is still growing. The reputation of Wong Shun Leung Wing Chun is still spreading to many corners of the world. Sigung Wong had many challenge fights; thus he was known as “King of Talking Hands”, which influenced his Wing Chun. I think Sigung’s reputation also attracted students of a similar mindset. No wonder some say Wong Shun Leung Wing Chun is very aggressive or more combat-oriented. The way I see it is through Sigung’s repeat emphasis on‘Lat Sau Jik Chung’ ( it can be literally translated into“When the hands are off, attack immediately”) ,‘,Lat Sau Jik Chung’ has become a trademark of people who practice Wong Shun Leung lineage of Wing Chun. Although as a martial art, it is inevitable that individuals would develop his own style, however I could see this mark on all genuine Wong Shun Leung Wing Chun practitioners. I was delighted to see above video which complies Sigugn Wong’s 21 students; including my Sifu Gary Lam, in one video. Although the video might not have shown essence of every individual practitioners; I know how hard it is to do so with limited resources and in such a short clip, but it was so wonderful to see Sigung’s legacy in so many students. Most people talk about Sigung’s fighting skill when they think of him, but he must also be a great teacher to be able to produce so many excellent Wing Chun Sifus.
