The Emperor’s Candlesticks is a classic 1937 movie. The main characters name is Wilensky or Zelenskyy. Which reminds me of a thought. What if the war in Ukraine was an elaborate ploy to draw out and expose the military holdings of the west. Putin is a judo practitioner. Zelenskyy is an actor. This would be indicative of basic martial art strategy. Expose the enemies weaponry then use said weaponry/tactics against them.
A deeper dive into the Wing Chun concept of grounding. I introduce a new metaphor to help apply this awesome technique.
Without a doubt the best advice I have received in many many years becomes my credo moving forward into 2023. “Don’t over estimate the task at hand“
Be free of passion yet full of love.
The intellectual aspect of Wing Chun is vital to developing self-defense /security skills. If you have trained for any extent of time with me you will recognize the resonance of Mr. Bustamante’s… intel. Observe and enjoy!

The 1st major snow storm arrives on que. 24* with 100mph wind gusts. Post holing knee deep in some areas. Hiking into the wind with no glasses. Icicles stabbing into my eyeballs. Duely noted. 12 miles tonite. Feeling strong.
What a fantastic night hike. The air is so crisp it hurts to breath in too fast. The night sky is epic. Hope you are all doing yer kung fu!
My Wing Chun is used to find and promote solutions to many problems. A leading challange to humanity has always been housing. It is literally a Human Right yet is the most violated. Those that are proactive in furthering education on the reality of “homelessness” are to be applauded and more of us must do our part in whatever way we can. #invisiblepeople
Wing Chun has the answer but the questions need to be understood before we can comprehend the answer: think Man Sau “asking hand” a rather brave and learned hand ready for the response… alert centered and focused yet calm and relaxed. -Sifu Z
