Ving Tsun Drills

As well as learning forms, students will also train two-person exercises that develop specific concepts of the Ving Tsun system. These drills allow students to put the Ving Tsun principles learned through the forms into practice with a partner. As the students progress, they will begin working on the Chi Sau exercise, where students exchange techniques in a free flowing dynamic environment. Chi Sau develops good fighting habits ideal for self defense.


Pak Sau

Pak Sau is the first drill taught to students during their Introductory Class. Pak Sau (slap hand) allows one student to train a basic block while the other student trains to throw chain punches.


Pak Dar

Pak Dar (slap hit) builds off of Pak Sau and allows the student who is blocking to train simultaneous defense and offense, a hallmark of Ving Tsun. 


Lap Sau

Lap Sau (pulling hand) allows students to further develop their reflexes and sensitivity while introducing the Bong Sau (wing arm) technique.


Don Chi Sau

Don Chi Sau (single hand Chi Sau) is a precursor to Chi Sau and emphasizes correct positioning, relaxation, and sensitivity.


Luk Sau

Luk Sau (rolling hands) builds off of Don Chi Sau and allows students to further develop their positioning, relaxation and sensitivity.


Tsui Ma

Tsui Ma (push horse) allows students to further develop their stance by being pushed and by moving others with their stance.


Chi Gerk

Chi Gerk (sticky legs) is a drill that trains sensitivity for the legs as well as developing balance and positioning.


Chi Sau

Chi Sau (sticky hands) is arguably the most synonymous and popular drill when most people think about Ving Tsun. Chi Sau is a dynamic exercise that allows students to exchange techniques and promotes sensitivity, relaxation, and proper positioning.


There are not many sets of training exercises in Wing Chun. They are easy to learn but to master them requires determination.
