Start your training off right with the foundation of Wing Tsun: Volume 1: Siu-Nim-Tau. Creating a solid base of training is what the Siu-Nim-Tau is all about, which includes learning correct posture, upper body mechanics, creating a strong and stable lower body, and learning all about simultaneous attack and defense.
Because Chi-dan-sau (Single-arm Sticking-hand) is learned during the final section of Siu-Nim-Tau, you might also want to check out Volume 3: Chi-sau if you are intent on learning the actual training curriculum in order as taught by the AWCA.
When your Siu-Nim-Tau training is completed, it is time for the intermediate curriculum: Volume 2: Chum-Kiu. Taking your Siu-Nim-Tau training even further, the Chum-Kiu will teach you all about multiple opponents, kicking, the use of elbow attacks, defense against knee attacks, and how to get the most power from tighter angling.
Like your Siu-Nim-Tau training, the Chum-Kiu also includes a Chi-sau training phase, which is Chi-sheung-sau (Double-arm Sticking-hands). This complete curriculum is covered in Volume 3: Chi-sau.
Covering Chi-dan-sau (Single-arm Sticking-hand), Chi-sheung-sau (Double-arm Sticking-hands), Luk-sau (Rolling-arms with forward pressure), and the seven primary Chi-sau sections, Volume 3: Chi-sau also covers a great deal about Lap-sau (Deflecting-arm) and Chi-gerk (Sticking-legs).
The advanced stage of empty-hand fighting is the third and final curriculum: Volume 4: Biu-Tze. Focusing on penetrating power and delivering phenomenal strikes to a host of skilled attackers, the Biu-Tze is one of the most advanced fighting curriculums you will ever encounter.
Included with Volume 4 is also the Biu-Tze Chi-sau training curriculum, reserved only for those that have completed the Biu-Tze and are preparing for wooden dummy training.
After all empty-hand curriculums have been completed, the Wing Tsun practitioner progresses even further by learning the famed Muk-Yan-Chong, or Wooden Dummy. With eight sections to learn, you will spend a great deal of time honing and refining your skills, as well as learning a host of new concepts and applications.
At the completion of the wooden dummy, you will then experience the wooden dummy’s version of Chi-sau. This Chi-sau training has been shown to afford a great advantage over those that have not experienced it, and with Volume 5: Muk-Yan-Chong you will learn all about it.
