DVDs: Wing Chun Pai

These DVDs show the art of Wing Chun as demonstrated by students of the famous Pan Nam of Fo Shan, in GuanDong province. Mr. Pan's Wing Chun is considered a national treasure in China. Though quite different from the more universally known Yip Man version made popular by Bruce Lee, the Fo Shan branch is a respected member of the Wing Chun family.
Other demonstrators include Benny Meng the proprietor and head trainer of the Wing Chun Museum teaching the Yip Man styles of the art.

NOTE: The Pan Nam DVD's are SUBTITLED in English and have Cantonese tracks as well as Mandarin (PuTongHua) audio. Read about Pan Nam style Wing Chun.

Pan Nam style Wing Chun Chi Kung QigongDVD#24181 Chi Kung (Qigong) Kidney Breathing
$39.50, English language

Eddie Chong has studied under some top people in the Southern branch of Kung Fu. Besides the White Eyebrow transmission of Li Yang Jian he was in the last group of disciples of Pan Nam, a famous Wing Chun figure. This particular form was handed to him by Pan Nam and is considered a Shaolin heritage in the Wing Chun family tradition. Definitely a Southern Fighting Chi Kung, it pays particular attention to sending energy to the hands. It has some unusual hand formation based on the meridians and is a sophisticated combination of dynamic tension, concentrated postures and fa jing (energy issuance). A well constructed DVD.

Eddie Chong with Pan Nam WIng ChunDVD#24182 Pak Sau Drills & Advanced Footwork
$39.50, English language

In this DVD Eddie Chong, an accomplished Southern Boxing stylist, shows what he considers to be almost a "missing element" of much student training: the Pak Sao exercise. Taking the pattern of Pak Sao and some counters he shows a wide variety of training methods which can increase speed and certainly challenge one's timing. In additon and necessarily supplementary to; Chong Sifu shows advanced and flexible foot patterns from Wing Chun which blend with the Pak Sao to form a complete course of exercises and practical applications. Pak Sao is meant to be the bridge to double Chi Sao but it has much to offer on its own. In our opinion one of the most fluid and varied presentations we've seen of the Pak Sao with minimal emphasis on mechanical and rigid patterns.

Hung Gar Wing Chun 13 Post HandsDVD#11477 Thirteen Post Hands
$19.50, 50+ Minutes Cantonese/ English Subtitles

This is the Hung version of Wing Chun as a Guang Zhou style. This is Hei Ban’s (Liang Zan's) Wing Chun and here Lam demonstrates not a form but the major strikes, stances and movements of his "Hard" style of Wing Chun. Most of the applications are the same but the actions definitely have a “Hung” flavor and favor power a bit more and a wider and more circular interpretation. Worth the look for enthusiasts. Instructor Lin Xin is a student of Deng Jin Tao. He has studied Hung Gar, Wing Chun, Xia Men (Tibetan Kung Fu) and Yang Tai Chi.

Hung Gar style Wing Chun Sil Nim TaoDVD#11478 Siu Nian Tou
$19.50, 50+ Minutes Cantonese/ English Subtitles

This is the first form of Wing Chun, Xiao Lian Tou. If you are unaware of it, there is a definite connection between Hung Gar and Wing Chun and this version, shown by, is a perfect example of the hybrid which sometimes occurs. Most of the movements would be familiar to anyone doing the style but there is a greater emphasis on power issuance, and somewhat rounder arm motion as in the Hung style. Lam himself is very specific. The only problem is that, though he goes into a lot of details about the technique, he doesn’t shown anything with a partner. Instructor Lin Xin is a student of Deng Jin Tao. He has studied Hung Gar, Wing Chun, Xia Men (Tibetan Kung Fu) and Yang Tai Chi.

Shaolin Chi Sum Wing Chun

DVD#12048 Shaolin Chi Sum Wing Chun
Demonstrated by Andreas Hoffman
$29.95, English only

The director of the Ving Tsun Museum in Akron Ohio hosts this never-before filmed material. It features a demonstration of the Saam Baai Faat "Three Bows to Buddha". Curator Benny discusses the historical significance of this almost unknown branch of the Wing Chun family and its relation to other branches.

"This tape contains the set called Saam Baai Fut - meaning Three Bows to Buddha . This is the heart of Chi Sim Weng Chun. In this set, the student learns to multiply energy through the waist as in bowing. Every technique in Weng Chun has a special bow to add power and structure. When the skill of Saam Baai Fut is mastered, a practitioner can rob the energy of an experienced opponent, or even prevent it from arising at all. This set also introduces the concept of thinking vertically as well as horizontally and laterally through bowing to Heaven (high), Human (middle) and Earth (low). Its focus is to expand the ability of Wing Chun Kuen practitioners to cover all of space and time. This set is called Saam Baai Fut because the students bows once for the Dharma (teaching), once for fellow students and once for the Buddha natures within.

This Saam Baai Fut DVD is made in recognition of, and in honor to, Grandmaster Wai Yan for his dedication to the development of Chi Sim Wing Chun Kung Fu" ...
