How To Chi Gerk Pt1

Master James Sinclair and Master Abid Mahmood bring you a video on the topic of How to Chi Gerk.

Chi Gerk or ‘Sticky Legs’ is a training approach used by Wing Chun students to build tremendous leg skills.  With sweeps, kicks, throws, traps, stamps and knee strikes, it is a comprehensive approach.  

The traditional approach is to stand on one leg.  However, at the UKWCKFA we feel this a ridiculous idea and does not enable a person to develop the skills to their full potential.

This is the 1st of 12 parts in a series of teaching videos on the subject of ‘Sticky Legs’.

.The less well known skill set of Wing Chun Kung Fu called Chi Gerk or ‘Sticky Legs is comparable to Chi Sau

Rarely taught within Wing Chun classes it is a fantastic training approach and always remains challenging and enjoyable practice.   

In this first short video, we introduce you to the idea and approach behind the methodology.

Wing Chun Chi Gerk as we use it is a method where we genuinely ‘stick’ to the opponent, and although we use only light arm contact we aim to build our skills to offset, kicks, sweeps, throws and takedowns.  

There are ‘eight kicks in the Wing Chun system, and the Chi Gerk training allows for experimentation in the application of all of them.

I can never stand still. I must explore and experiment. I am never satisfied with my work. I resent the limitations of my own imagination.
