DVD#24209 Siu Nim Tao Actual Combat
By Ma TengLong, World Southern Boxing Champion, International Martial Arts All Round Champion, National Martial Arts Champion
He studied under Chen Jin Hui (CLF), Deng Hua (Wing Chun), Huang JiaDa, (Zong He Synthetic Boxing), Luo Qiang (Dragon Form Boxing), Wu YiMing (WC), Chen LanGuang (Nan Quan), Chen MaoGuang (Nan Quan), Liu Jin Quan (Tai Chi). Not only has he won many championship but so have his students.
As the saying goes, “There’s a hard Wing Chun and a soft Wing Chun.” This is the hard approach. Ma shows the first form which, in the main, is relatively standard. He definitely emphasizes issuing power and some of the movements, such as Cross Hands, are done with quite a bit of Fa Jing. Every movement is broken down by performing in front of his class how it is applied. Some of the applications seem unnecessarily direct and simplified but there is no lack of intent. This is, of course, the foundational form of the style and Ma’s responses are strong and straight forward, no pun intended.
