Wing Chun - Chunfest

Spent the day at 'Chunfest' a get-together of mainly Wing Chun students and instructors although some were Tai Chi people too.

The day was spent playing at Chi Sao (Sticky Hands) a competitive drill where you touch hands (wrists, arms) with the other player and try to control them, off-balance them or strike them - it is similar to but different from the Tai Chi practice of Push Hands.

Despite the sun and the heat (and the fact that I did not take enough to drink) I had a fantastic day and learned a lot - I know I say this over and over (and over) again - but all martial arts training will help you with your Tai Chi ... if you understand how to let it do that.
