☯ COVERAGE ☯
Wing Chun places extra emphasis on coverage. Hit and don’t get hit is the mantra.
Unlike combat sports, where often, practitioners engage in tic for tac tactics, and will take a hit in order to land a hit, In Wing Chun, we want to always cover ourselves and shut down the opponent’s defense.
The reason is simple. Wing Chun is designed for the street. We must always assume that our opponent is carrying a concealed weapon. That punch to the face is in fact an attempt to cut our throats with a small concealed blade. That must ALWAYS be the assumption.
The Knives teach us to cover ourselves carefully during every strike so that we do not expose vulnerable areas, even when fighting empty handed.
