RENE RITCHIE YUEN KAY SAN WING CHUN KUEN RRYKSWCK21-THFO12

Emphasis in Yuen Kay Shan Wing Chun Kuen is placed on sensitivity training and on practical use. Starting with simple excercises and applications from early movements, sensitivity training progresses through a wide variety of two-person drills. The drills develop the many levels of application, from the obvious to the subtle, in a steady, step by step, method. The most important and often used form of sensitivity training is a version of the dual arm (Sticking Arms) seen in many Wing Chun Kuen styles. These exercises serve to bridge the gap between practice and actual combat and aid in developing many of Yuen Kay San Wing Chun Kuen’s different forms of power. As with other types of training, the initial exercises are simple and predictable, with more subtle, instinctive, and skillful changes being introduced as feeling increases. This helps to release the practitioners from pattern and repetition and allows them to apply their knowledge creatively and spontaneously.

Wing Chun: Yuen Kay San Wing Chun Kuen with Kwok Wan Ping Sifu

Yuen Kay San started training in the early 1900's under the renowned constable Fok Bo-Chuen. When his studies with Fok were complete, he became a student of the famed marshal Fung Siu-Ching. Yuen Kay San lived from 1889 until 1956, and with his passing, Shum Nung (Yuen Kay San's first student and only disciple) named the style Yuen Kay San Wing Chun Kuen, in honor and memory of his teacher.
