DVDs: WING CHUN page three (Randy Williams)

There is a saying, "Tai Chi covers the North and Wing Chun covers the South." There's no disputing, Wing Chun Pai is one of the most popular of Kung Fu styles. Many people say this is due to its practicality and superior fighting technique. This may be so. What Wing Chun has also retained and so many Chinese styles have lost, is that its training is tactile, personal and usage oriented. Some of these DVDs particularly don't even show forms, just lots and lots of usage. This is advantageous to ALL students of Chinese martial arts as a standard for what must be retained to keep the art alive.
Teacher Randy Williams began training under George Yau at the age of 13 then went on to train with the famous and demanding Augustine Fong and Ho Kam Ming of Hong Kong. His movements are classic, precise and accurate. His presentation is to the point and gets you into the movements and the applications immediately. He is the founder of CRCA, a large Wing Chun organization. Williams is a born teacher. Wing Chun itself is well structured but Williams has a teacher's mind using analogies, drills, jokes and images to get each point across.

NOTE: These are remakes of Unique's original VHS series. They saved a buck and just transferred the VHS to DVD without menus and such frills. Think of them as flat video tapes.

Randy Williams Wing Chun Basics 1

NEW!! DVD#24187 Chum Kiu Combat Techniques

If the comparison to Mystery Theater 5000 seems obvious it is Williams Sifu's own fault. This DVD and others in the series (and this is the only series we know that has this) show continual Sticky Hands fighting between Randy Williams and some of his students while the interested parties comment, often humorously, about what’s occurring on screen. Another way to think of these DVDs as the equivalent to the “Director’s Commentary” of a movie. Actually it is a very effective method for analyzing the back and forth fighting in pretty close to real time. Though certainly set around the information in Chum Kiu this sometimes wild and wooly presentation of full speed Sticky Hands uses many techniques form the Wing Chun system in their spontaneous, unrehearsed and lively applications. This is a great one if you want to see Sticky Hands, reality style. Williams and company demonstrate wry humor and good camaraderie in their commentary.

DVD#18111 Siu Leem Tau 1
Part 1: Combat Techniques
$29.95

The Mystery Science Theater 3000 approach to instruction. There are about 400 jokes on this narrated presentation of continuous Wing Chun sparring with multiple students and teachers. Williams and two cohorts comment on his own real time fighting footage of sparring. Williams points out the applications of the Siu Leem Tau form in the midst of flashing attacks and counters. His humor is fast, punny and ranges even more than techniques, sometimes missing completely but welcome and much more like over hearing the way most martial artists actually sit around and analyze their friends and compatriots. Wing Chun lends it self perfectly to this kind of "real time" analysis and - if you have eyes - you will see a lot.

DVD#18116 Biu Jee #1
$29.95

Biu Jee is the highest hand form in most Wing Chun branches. It takes the energies developed in the other two forms and refines them to pin point accuracy and power. This master form is the kind you could learn in a month and practice for a lifetime. Finger movements are introduced, per the name, but also the movements correspondent to this forms OTHER name Gup Gow Sao or "emergency hand". We had a similar thing in Kenpo with what some of us called "oops" techniques which were the kind, crude and effective, that you did when things turned nasty quickly. In this FIRST part of the THREE PART series on this form Sifu Williams introduces the form and then, while doing the breakdowns, goes into lengthy and thorough information on the applications and meanings of Biu Jee components which include Sticky Footwork, Kick Evasion, Butting Elbow strikes, hair grabs, complex arch attacks and much more .
