I recently had some scheduling problems for the attendance of my krav Maga (and kickboxing) training, so I had to quit. Trying to find a MA school that fit my schedule I've found this wing chun school. Although my first experience with chinese MA (namely tai chi) was not very satisfactiory, at a first exam seemed that this art could fit my tastes and physical capabilities (age 56, not very good with high kicks). So yesterday I went for a test lesson and both the art and the teaching looked ok. So I think I will join the school and start from scratch a new adventure.

End of the first week of training. Very good general impression. Last evening I had my first encounter with the sand bag... it was ok (no bruises ). This week I learned salutation and performed various drills. Since I'm a beginner out of the usual year cycle of the school ( the MA schools in italy begins their activities in Sept/Oct and stop for summer at the end of June) I benefit of one-to-one teaching (all the other newcomers have already 2 months of activity now) and this is good.

Thats all for now!

Its hard to beat that 1-to-1 teacher/student ratio. Hold on to it for as long as you can!

Story of Italian Wing Chun teacher in Shanghai.

Might be interesting, as an Italian teaching Chinese martial arts to Chinese.

1 to 1 is the best way to learn IMHO.
