Los Angeles Wing Chun

Los Angeles Wing Chun

Master James Sinclair, the Founder and Chief Instructor, of the prestigious UK Wing Chun Kung FU Association, has recently returned from a trip to Los Angeles.

In September 2017 Master James Sinclair met up with a number of the leading Wing Chun Kung Fu teachers available.    As a special guest of Grandmaster Wan Kam Leung, James was invited to meet up at the Los Angeles Wing Chun Headquarters of Master Gary Lam in Alhambra California.  James was treated very well and honoured to be given a seat next to Grandmaster Wan in the photo session.  This was a surprise as James was only a guest of the Grandmaster and was expecting such 'face' to be given. It was a great pleasure for James to meet Garandmaster Wan's family and spend some time with his long term friend of approaching 12 years. Special thanks also have to go out to Master Gary Lam for opening the doors to James and allowing him to be present at what was a very exclusive series of seminars held by the Masters of the Wong Shun Leung lineage. James and his son enjoyed an extended lunch with the Grandmaster and William Kwok of the Gotham Wing Chun School in New York. During James' time in California he also visited respected Wing Chun Master Robert Chu, who remain one of the greatest authorities on the history of the Art.  He has traced by genuine manuscripts outlining the original concepts and approaches of Wing Chun Kung from its earlier days.  A fascinating discussion and of particular interest was the discussion on Qi Gong and its use in the Wing Chun system.

Wing Chun Pole Training MasterClass

Wing Chun Pole Training

On Sunday June 25th 2017 James Sinclair held a Wing Chun Pole Training  MasterClass. The Luk Dim Book Kwan is the Long Pole and a superb training tool for developing strength and power.  The pole form is by far the simplest to learn as it is only a short sequence of movements.  However, the Pole is one of the hardest to master as the wilding of such a long weapons exaggerates any mistakes. Master James Sinclair has been training in Wing Chun Kung Fu for 40 years and still demonstrates a real passion for the Art.  He has produced many the leading practitioners of the style and continues to inspire a new generation of Wing Chun fans. The Wing Chun Pole Training masterclass is only held once a year is is very restricted on number at attendees.  This gives a great opportunity to gain a personal insight into this aspect of the Wing Chun Kung Fu approach. As Master Sinclair has met with so many masters and shared experiences he will always give a more expanded view of the system often taking the time to talk about and demonstrate the approach taken by other lineages. To book for the 2018 seminar call today 07860 276923  or simply email the UKWCKFA at info@ukwingchun.com

Please take the time to like these clips. It takes a moment and is an acknowledgment of the effort we make to share them with you.-----------------------------------------The live online sessions have now moved on to the Advanced Hand Combinations from the 3rd level grading of the #ukwckfa syllabus. In this clip, James Sinclair was discussing the use of the many and varied hand skills in the beautiful Art #wingchun. As mentioned toooooo many times, this is but a tiny extract from a far longer discussion. In fact, this is from a 45-minute edited discussion.In this short extract, James Sinclair is showing some ideas to Onder Hassan. This is just part of a 10-minute free-flow practice after the live broadcast which was not rehearsed, choreographed, or prepared in any manner, just off the cuff. Here is an extract, warts and all.... Before everyone goes off a rant about fighting, this is simply practice and not unlike the skill of dummy training. James Sinclair was simply teaching some ideas to Onder Hassan.As this is a tiny extract and open to misinterpretation we will not answer questions or respond to comments. It could go back and forth ad infinitum... Many of the questions or comments you may have were probably dealt with in the extended video.#wingchun #vingtsun, #martialarts #kungfu #ukwckfa #jamessinclair #mindfulness #china #chinese #stneots #norwich #rayleigh #bedford #grays #leicester #health #peaceofmind #keepcalm #selfdefence #spirit #freedom #ExpressYourself #lifetimeofactivity ...
