copy deck
Inner Taun Sao

Sharp recoil to exercise CBJ

Snapping toe kick
from OBJ foot directly to target high knee foot/ankle relaxed toes snap to groin short sharp recoil quick recovery to exercise CBJ
Upper perimeter
your major targets are there therefore it is the most active perimeter for incoming techniques are designed to penetrate that perimeter. Therefore your hands should act primarily with in that area
Middle perimeter
contains your pivoting access for torque techniques and it contains your center of gravity which is responsible for loading in relationship to your feet and legs
Lower Perimeter
your primary power base all techniques used in Wing Chun Do are either generated from or supported by the lower perimeter
Inner perimeter
nothing can penetrate the inner perimeter your opponent shouldn’t be there no part of your hand should be there it is very difficult to control anything in the inner perimeter it limits your offensive versatility and your power you only have elbows, knees, and short hooks
Outer perimeter
your optimum working range for trapping, blocking or striking. You have 2 advantages, you have the bridge for trapping and you have potential to power load from the elbow
Extended perimeter
it is your best kicking range and it correlates with the danger zone, which is from the outer perimeter to the threat zone
Kill Range
It is your opponents extended leg plus 3 inches prior to engagement you want to keep your opponent at or just outside the kill range because he has to make some kind of gross or telegraphic movement to reach you. Keep the opponent at the kill range compensates for your lag time when you are setting up for motion you wish to get as close to kill range as possible as oppose to threat zone which can be longer if I can get inside his threat zone and approach the kill range my close will be less telegraphic and I will have a more successful launch capability
Left and Right perimeter
your left hand and leg should act in the left perimeter and your right should stay in the same area also not crossing over the centerline because it imbalances and weakens you and isolates out your core muscles from the equation so you become less efficient. (This is perimeter 8 & 9)
Wing Chun Do Creed
I will strive to achieve my personal best to use my knowledge of the martial arts to help myself and my fellowman.
To never be abusive and only use my skills for self-defense.
To show proper respect and self-discipline at all times

2. Arm Angle- Forearms slightly raised (up) and slightly in- form power lines.

4. Rhythm and Timing- First chung choie is extended to maximum its expression and then the arm retracts back to elbow pocket before the second chung choie is initiated; this is to prevent the arms from obstructing each other
