    Trainer Academy: From beginners to masters

    Don’t be put off by the term ”Trainer Academy”. The classes are by no means intended only for instructors. It’s not only more advanced students who are most welcome, but also beginners who want to work on their student grade programmes.

    The heart of WingTsun or the secrets of the higher grades

    While training for your student grades, you learned how to defend yourself effectively. You have learned many new things that were unknown or unfamiliar to you. Now you are at the transition point from the student grades to the 1st higher grades. Our subject this time is what happens there.

    Tenerife, the silly season and other misconceptions

    Again and again we find that a number of long-outdated, once new introductions are still in regular use. WingTsun terms – their pronunciation or use – and also EWTO seminars are no exception.

    Everybody knows what a weapon is. But what is an improvised weapon? The answer: improvised weapons are day-to-day items that can be used as a weapon. For me these also include weapons that are not recognisable as such by laymen, for example a palmstick.

    The most important things are already in the first lessons!

    For over 16 years I have experienced and lived with WingTsun on a daily basis, as what might be called an ″in-house student″ of Sifu Kernspecht. For him, literally everything revolves around WingTsun, and all other topics are merely reference points to be applied to WT.

    The sucker punch – an unfair surprise attack

    Although it has been in common use in the street for a very long time, the term ”sucker punch“ from American slang only gained common currency in non English-speaking countries in 2011, when the American action fantasy film of the same name directed by Zack Snyder came to the cinemas.

    A master teaching beginners – waste of time or enrichment?

    Again and again I hear highly graded teachers say “I don’t teach student grades, I don’t find it interesting.“ This point of view is understandable. It can certainly be tedious to explain the same things over and over again – having to start from scratch, so to speak.

    Standing still means going backwards

    While the saying "Standing still means going backwards" does not come from me, but from Rudolf von Bennigsen-Foerder (1926 - 1989) – a top manager and company chairman of many years standing – I think it expresses very nicely why changes are necessary.

    Tactile reflex training with "sticky arms"

    In this editorial I will explain why tactile reflex training with "sticky arms" is the ideal training for self-defence. You can try it out for yourselves at the Easter Seminar in Großwallstadt near Frankfurt/Main, where I will be teaching it. To set the scene, here is an extract from my coming book on tactile reflex training with "sticky arms", "ChiSao":
