and detailed videos on correct positioning and structures of every single movement.

Standing Meditation Practices

which are a unique and simple way of delving into the mind-body-connection aspect of this internal practice which leads to a deep level of mindfulness, focus and results in the calming of the nervous system.

The Important Foundational Tools

for method that makes it rather unique from other methods of Wing Chun:

  • Taigung (activation of deep core muscles and mental visualizations and analogies to help better understand it application)

  • Seng (the alignment and ‘rising up’ idea and releasing tension in and around the spine which is the ‘on switch’ of the internal aspect)

  • Correct Postural alignment (and its application in Wing Chun which leads to deep relaxation and ultimately muscular pain relief and balancing of the musculoskeletal system)

  • Mindful Relaxation and the idea of ‘Placing’ (which details the difference from the common misconceptions of what relaxation means in internal Kung Fu arts and how it is tangibly applied in this method, leading to opening of the joints)

  • The internal idea behind Wing Chun’s core principle of Centerline and triangulation and unmasking the misinterpretation of these important principles.

  • Elbow and Knee Force and correct methods of settling of the shoulder girdle for inter-connection of the body and the limbs. 


Power Generation

detailed videos on how to apply the learned ideas and tools like Elbow Force in every single part of the form, how a training partner can apply resistance to every movement of the SNT form, how to read the feedback from the experience and what feeling to look for etc. These videos are very useful even for people who do not have training partners as they allow you to understand how to guide a non-Wing Chun person such as a friend, spouse, or family member to apply resistance to your movements for feedback.
