Wing Chun Inverted Stance and Pivot

The Wing Chun Pivot Stance About to Be Applied

Wing Chun Inverted Stance and Pivot

When training in Wing Chun Kung Fu, you will find certain situations can compromise the regular stance with the weight toward the back. Also you will find your training partners will try to ‘break your stance and leave you very vulnerable to inside leg kicks, sweeps and attacks to the groin.

James Sinclair began his Wing Chun Kuen training way back in the early 1970’s and as a young and very slim individual released it would be impossible to always hold ground. He developed very efficient footwork skills to be able to deal with the huge aggression and pressure that larger and intimidating individuals would exert. In this short clip you can see the pivot use to avoid and create angular attacks and counter defence positions.

Note that the wight toward to lead leg is essentially the exact same basic forward stance that every Wing Chun student is familiar with, it is however reversed. This allows for control of the opponents led led in certain positions.

This is just a short clip from a very detailed 3 hour seminar of footwork and sparring.
