Well, after tonight I think it is pretty much a given that I need to upgrade to 30 minutes now. I was a little bit tired at the end of Total Body, but not so bad that it was a struggle to get through Core Cardio. For the rest of the week I will just do whatever the autoschedule gave me. Then, when I start the third week, I will go full steam ahead with 30 minutes.
Ever since my last wing chun class, I have been whipping through sil lum tao and biu jee so that I can focus mainly on chum kiu. I still perform them to the best of my ability, but right now I am worried more about refining chum kiu the most. That is where you start to pivot and use your whole body to get power into your attacks. In fact I think the two most important forms in the whole style are sil lum tao and chum kiu. Biu jee is more of what they call a “desperation form;” it features techniques that you would use in a fight if you lost control of the centerline. The dummy form basically uses what you have learned in the first two forms. As for the pole and knives…well, I have no experience with the knife form and don’t remember much of what I learned on the pole. I DO remember that I never finished it.
There is so much else lining up now, things are just barely over the horizon. If I can just get back to a job with normal hours, then I could go to wing cun more often and get better faster. Sifu said to me one night, “Getting a good handle on the style is within your grasp. You just need the hands on experience.” So that is my goal: to do something so I can get it!
