A Beginners Training Guide for Wing Chun Solo Drills
Training Wing Chun drills solo isn’t always easy. Its hard to know which solo drills to train at home and which Wing Chun drills you need to practice with a partner. Plus, there are plenty of solo Wing Chun drills you could train, but which solo drills are for beginners and which are more advanced Wing Chun drills?
First of all…
How Do You Practice Wing Chun Alone?
When you don’t have a hands-on Wing Chun teacher, local school or Wing Chun practice partner, alone is simply the only way you can learn Wing Chun. So how to practice Wing Chun alone? You need a structured, step-by-step Wing Chun program. Why? Because its hard enough learning Wing Chun alone. Randomly learning Wing Chun alone without a structure progam is a recipe for failure. Lots of people try it. But noone actually gets good because they don’t have a specific path to follow. In order to practice Wing Chun alone you need the following:
- Decide on one specific Wing Chun sifu to follow. Forget the rest, they may seem good but following different approaches will just confuse you.
- Step-by-Step Wing Chun program. Get a structured program, a specific path to follow.
- Make a daily training habit. Set a Wing Chun solo practice schedule. Habits should start small. As little as 2 minutes a day. Engraining a habit is more important than the amount of time training each day.
So the question is…
