(Part 3 of 5)

Ever hear that phrase “Unlearn everything you have learned?
Well it’s true in this form of martial art. I give Jin a lot of credit for putting up with us newbies. If you understood the art, you know how frustrating it must have been for him then, and yet he embodies patience with each new student.

Well, I finally get to my point here. After training with Jin for several years, I still am not very good at Wing Chun, but I’m still trying. After all he did say that it takes years and years to master.

But I did walk away with one concept from this art that I apply with training my clients. The “heavy elbows” concept, which both in his art and resistance training you can use right away. More on that in my next post.
