Steve Hunt 2016 Student of the Year

Steve Hunt 2016 Student of the Year

For many years we have awarded a member of the UKWCKFA the Student of the Year trophy. The winner for 2016 was a simple decision and went to Steve Hunt of the Rayleigh school.

Steve came to Wing Chun later in life then most, and has struggled at times to get to grips with the Art. However, he is a always smiling (and apologising to his training partners, actually just everyone!) and is not one to quit.

Steve had to work particularly hard to pass the second UKWCKFA grading. He took it upon himself to use the Rayleigh HQ on Sundays when no classes were on. His enthusiasm finally gathered a small core of students for extra training. This group went on to successfully pass the test. 

Not content with this he wanted other colleagues to take the test and kept the Sunday commitment going. He selflessly helped others to pass the test by giving them the chance for extra practice. We all know that it takes a lot of effort to get people motivated and he did just that.

He has built a great class spirit and every person agreed on how much he deserved the award. All martial arts schools would love a student with his nature and we are just lucky Steve came to us.

The trophy is a large cup, Steve is seen here with something to keep…

The #UKWCKFA online #wingchun classes current topic of of discussion is the all important Sheung Chi Sau, or Double Sticky Hands. Many years ago James Sinclair was named 'The Teachers Teacher'. This was due to the fact that many UK based teachers had their roots, and more, under his tutelage. James still teaches all levels of student personally teaching in Leicester, St Neots, Bedford and Rayleigh, Essex. This is but a tiny extract from episode 19 of the online series on Chi Sau. We introduced some simple concepts to reduce the inherent risks when crossing gates.Once again we fully accept you have your own experience and opinions. So far we have 19 episodes on chi sau alone totalling many hours. And more to come this weekend.We cannot engage in discussions based on such a short extract. The questions you have were probably dealt within the main body of dicussion.Thanks to Onder Hassan from the London Wing Chun Academy ( www.londonwingchun.co.uk ) and Ryan Moyce from Norwich Wing Chun ( www.norfolkwingchun.uk )--------------------------------------------------------------UK Wing Chun Kung Fu Assoc.

The UKWCKFA online #wingchun classes current topic of of discussion is the all important Sheung Chi Sau, or Double Sticky Hands. It is would be remiss not to discuss the Bong Sau frame in such an important aspect of this training approach.The Bong Sau can be used as a block to a punch. However it is often demonstrated in a far too elaborate and fanciful manner. The best use case for Bong Sau is in #chisau training and primarily to prevent the ever dangerous throat strikes.In this short clip James Sinclair discusses the frame. Please accept/understand you are only viewing a tiny part of a much longer dialgoue on the subject. We fully accept you have your own experience and opinions. For this reason as we are only sharing ours, we will not enter into discussions as it can go back and forth ad infinitum.#wingchun #VingTsun, #martialarts #kungfu #ukwckfa #jamessinclair #mindfulness #China #chinese #stneots #norwich #rayleigh #bedford #grays #leicester #health #peaceofmind #keepcalm #selfdefence #spirit #freedom #expressyourself #lifetimeofactivity ...
