WHY A BOOT CAMP APPROACH TO LEARNING WING CHUN?


1. Everyone in the Wing Chun Boot Camp class is starting on the same page.  Everyone is sharing the same goal: to learn the information or motions the instructor has put forth.  When entering into a mixed-level class, the higher level student ends up trying to teach the beginner student and is not able to practice at his or her own level and will miss out on his or her own learning experience.  Or the beginner student is not given full attention as the teachers try to accommodate the learning of the older student.  Either way, no one is given the attention he or she needs in order to learn well and progress.  

There can be a benefit to working with more advanced students.  In Boot Camp, the older students who attend, are specifically there to help their younger brothers and  sisters and/or to get a better handle on Wing Chun Basics.   The goal remains the same for both…everyone is there to learn the lesson of the day and improve the Wing Chun of all the students in the kwoon.

2. Sifu Bryan’s goal is to keep the quality of the Wing Chun high in the kwoon, and the  level of learning excellent.

 West Coast Wing Chun is a school, not a gym, where you come and go as you please and if you miss a day of working out, then no one notices.  Students here are expected to show up, practice and learn.  You are held accountable for your progress and training.  If you are going to miss a class, you must let Sifu Bryan know in advance.  We understand that everyone’s commitment level will vary  dependent on their family and work commitments.  As long as there is a willingness to commit  to learning/practicing and communication is present, then we will welcome you into our family and our 2nd level of training at the Siu Lim Tao level.  If you are flakey and  do not take your training seriously, then you will not pass the course and be allowed  to continue to the next level.  We give everyone a fair shot at learning. The rest is up  to you.

3. It is difficult to know whether you want to commit to learning a martial art by taking one or two classes.  It takes 30 days of doing something new to create a habit.

It takes longer to start to comprehend what a martial art is really about.
