  • (intense music)

  • - Hi, this is Dan Lok.

  • And today, I'm gonna show you three

  • most dangerous techniques in Wing Chun.

  • Now obviously, Wing Chun, we have so many

  • different techniques and different offensive techniques,

  • and different defensive techniques,

  • but today I will show you the three

  • that I believe are the most dangerous

  • and the most effective.

  • Now, the very first technique is the finger jab.

  • Now, why is the finger jab so dangerous?

  • Let me show you.

  • Now in terms of when we are in the fighting range,

  • the finger jab is the longest weapon

  • against the nearest target.

  • In Wing Chun, you can see it's a very sneaky attack

  • because we are not jabbing the eyes like this.

  • Right? This is not one of those kung fu movies.

  • We actually come from underneath.

  • So when you're looking at someone,

  • you see, this is not in the part of the vision.

  • So from here, it's a very very short distance.

  • Very direct from point A to point B, like so. Right?

  • So it's a very good offensive technique. Example...

  • If I know we're in range...

  • I'm finger jabbing. Right?

  • Right there.

  • Or if we know somebody's gonna attack us,

  • Let's say you throw a hook, so we do a cancel right here,

  • and also we can finger jab. Right? Try again.

  • Boom! Like so.

  • So it's a very both offensive and defensive technique.

  • It's very effective.

  • You can jab the eye. You can also jab the throat.

  • Right there. So let's say he's

  • standing here with a punching hand,

  • go ahead, just punch me right here. So stay there.

  • So from here, now see my fist actually

  • barely reaches him because he's got longer arms.

  • Right? Longer reach.

  • But look at my finger.

  • If I do a finger jab, you can see

  • that it gives me that few more inches of advantage.

  • Now I can hit him before he hits me. So finger jab.

  • Now unfortunately, a lot of Wing Chun practitioners,

  • they don't practice the finger jab very much.

  • They always rely on straight boxing

  • which I will show you the straight box in just a moment.

  • But the finger jab, very very effective.

  • So how you practice it with a Wing Chun

  • stance you can do this like so. Right?

  • And when you're practicing, you can do like this.

  • Typical Wing Chun stance. Like so.

  • And you just jab right there.

  • Right? I'll show you. Like that.

  • Or it could be even from this position, right?

  • Asking hand from here you can see. Show you.

  • Show you like this.

  • See how it's underneath?

  • Boom. So it'll look something like this.

  • Ok I'll show again.

  • And from here. Again so speed will be... like that.

  • Finger jab.

  • Now the second technique, the second

  • most dangerous technique in Wing chun,

  • which is the fundamental technique,

  • which is the straight blast.

  • Now the straight punch, when you throw the punch...

  • This is not boxing.

  • Your width from the center, like so.

  • And it's a vertical punch, like so.

  • It's like a chain punch.

  • Now what makes it dangerous is

  • instead of the beat of boxing,

  • it could be one, two, three, four...

  • Straight punch in Wing Chun it's like...

  • It's like a machine gun.

  • So it's very difficult for someone, let's say in boxing,

  • if someone throws a punch, it's easy for them

  • to bob and weave and do all these things and that's nice,

  • but when somebody's blasting instead of like this,

  • it's a little bit harder to defend.

  • And a little bit harder to bob and weave.

  • And that's why it's very, very dangerous.

  • And if you practice, again, it could be a very good

  • offensive technique or defensive.

  • Let me show you.

  • In this case, and when you're practicing and punch to nose,

  • or even the chest, breastbone,

  • could be the stomach, right?

  • or I like to hit just the throat, ok?

  • So I won't hit the throat, obviously.

  • But it would look something like this.

  • So let's say I can see if he wants to...right there.

  • See that? Slow.

  • Slow. Slow, slow. Right there, see?

  • And if it's speed, it would be like,

  • (punches loudly)

  • Be like that.

  • But you might say, "well, there's no power in that",

  • There's power in there. Ok?

  • And when you're hitting someone it the throat,

  • you do not need a lot of power.

  • Important thing is, practice, relax, from here again,

  • you could be in a typical Wing Chun stance,

  • just practice straight blast.

  • But learn the move.

  • A lot of times, I can see a lot of

  • Wing Chun guys, they practice like this.

  • You don't fight like this. Ok?

  • When you're practicing, make sure you

  • learn how to include the footwork,

  • and you move in to close the gap. Ok?

  • Now that's the second technique, straight blast.

  • Third technique, which is a Wing Chun kick,

  • and sometimes, most of the time

  • they will kick it on the knees or the shin bone.

  • You can see how with a dummy, like these type techniques.

  • Very, very powerful. Very effective.

  • Like so. Make sure bend your knees.

  • Like that. So if I'm here, boom. Like that.

  • Boom. Like that.

  • Now, it is not a flick.

  • It's actually a stomp.

  • When you're practicing on a partner, yeah,

  • just practice you don't wanna hurt your partner.

  • Just kinda like flick. We know.

  • But in reality, it's more like a stomp.

  • You're trying to break the knee, right there. One shot.

  • Now, another thing you could do is of course

  • you can also do the finger jab with the straight blast,

  • and then you can also combine

  • some of these techniques together.

  • Or you do the kick first, and then you finger jab,

  • and then you can do the straight blast.

  • Those three techniques very, very effective.

  • So, three most dangerous techniques in Wing Chun,

  • finger jab, straight blast, and the low kick.

  • Practice. practice well, practice often,

  • I'll see you in the next video.
