The Power of Wing Chun

Title: My Wing Chun Diary

Size: 18"x24"
Year: 2007

The below image demonstrates how the Wing Chun structure really works. A good Wing Chun fighter can only be effective if the practitioner has a solid understanding of the science behind the Wing Chun body structure. Unlike other Martial-Arts which use torque or kenetic energy to engage the opponent, Wing chun uses the entire body weight and structure (legs, hip, and elbow) to deflect, redirect, and attack the opponent. This image of the Forearm Forklift, illustrates the power the elbow joints.

Here's something I did for a vehicle lesson demo. I didn't have time to add the hood scoop, spoilers, and other neat things to supe it up. But nonetheless, it was a fun little exercise. FYI, The design was inspired by the Ford Mustang.
