    Training against ambush

    I have recently been repeatedly asked for my opinion about the incidents that took place in Cologne on New Year's Eve. The general view seems to be that "There's nothing you can do in these cases. Self-defence or in particular WingTsun can't help you there either."
    I disagree completely with this, and in this editorial I will examine the subject in detail.

    WT & Grappling in 2016

    "Grappling on the ground is not a classic aspect of WingTsun,
    but nowadays it is a vital part of WT self-defence."

    My arguments for our WingTsun forms

    The best job in the world

    "The best job in the world" is what somebody wrote on my Facebook page.
    Yes, he is right. I chose my own "job" for myself: I can practice a lot of WT, I get out and about a lot, get to know a lot of people and am never bored.

    What has water got to do with WingTsun?

    When I heard that I was being allowed to write the editorial, I was staying at Hotel Giessbach by Lake Brienz in the Bearnese highlands. This is where I take a few days rest each year (after all the travelling I do for WingTsun), firstly to restore the work/life balance and secondly to come up with new ideas.

    WT and Grappling

    As my research work is currently concerned with the way towards Inner WingTsun, I have asked Grandmaster Oliver König, who together with DaiSiFu Thomas Schrön has long examined the subject of "grappling" and its relative value in WingTsun self-defence, to write a guest editorial on the state of affairs.

    "Do you still practice the forms?"

    At present I am once again engaged in intensive research for our WingTsun training – and not least also the WingTsun forms. This is a subject that comes up again and again. But as I am very short of time right now, I have asked the man who has studied the forms most intensively to write something about them in a guest editorial: GM Giuseppe Schembri.

    From Tweet to Editorial
