"Enquiring" and "Questioning" "Probing" and "Discovering" "Leading" to "Learning" and "Understanding" the "ing" in "Wing" Chun.

"Containing" a "sampling" of words "belonging" to ("Wing" Chun = "Everlasting" "Spring" ) terminology, "Pertaining" to "ending" with "ing"

"Redefining" "Dispelling" "Enlightening" "Divulging" "Using" the "ing" "Thing"

"Intending" towards "smashing" "unlocking" "stumbling" blocks, in "comprehending" the esoteric aspects of "Wing" Chun terminology, that is perhaps "presenting" problems, that is "hindering" progress and "learning" possibilities.

"Accessing" English "ing" words, with over 12,500, of them "waiting" in "helping" to explain "everything" from "Continuing" Motion to "Expressing" Emotions.

"Averaging" a new English word a day for middle aged adults, perhaps "learning" and "inviting" "invigorating" "ing" words in to one's own vocabular will lead to a higher level of "understanding" of "motivating" one's self and for "helping" others with your "findings"

"Wishing" here in, that there is also "interesting" information not only for those "practicing" "Wing" Chun but also useful for all martial artists at any given level.

"Pertaining" to "explaining" martial arts, there are many reasons and opportunities to use words "ending" in "ing" as you will find here in abundance.

"Translating" Chinese terminology in to English is up to the "Wing" Chun sifu/teacher to decide their "meanings" as it can become "perplexing" "confusing" "bewildering" "puzzling" "mystifying" "baffling" "confounding" "disconcerting" "stupefying" "flabbergasting" "distressing" "frustrating" "unsettling" "perturbing" "befuddling" "exasperating" "overwhelming" for many students "trying" to "understand" without any helpful explanations.

"Encouraging" here in Cantonese Wing Chun terminology.

"Ing" words are used very often for "helping" and "explaining" "feelings" and emotions.

"Being" 80 Million people "speaking" Cantonese, foreigners "wanting" to, or "having" to converse with them need a simple way of "achieving" this.

"Communicating" in Cantonese for none native speakers has been around for a long time, with ways towards "achieving" this, new systems of writing have been developed.

"Understanding" and "communicating" with Jyutping (words with a tone number) more so than with Pinyin (also having tone numbers) in this thread, due to not being able to type with Pinyin accents.

"Leaving" the nest from this Wing Chun topic (but not very far transferred to) Jyut-Ping-Wing-Chun-Way

"ING"= ZYU(6) "Particle for continuous state, in English context" for example; 'Mong(6) Zyu(6)' = "Gazing"

"Stopping" "Staying" "Dwelling" "Residing" all are "Zyu(6)"

"Starting" with 'Hoi Sik'

"Standing" ready then "Sinking" the body by "Bending" the knees and "Raising" the fists to the sides, to perform the 'Siu Leem Tau' (The Little Idea) 1st empty air form of Wing Chun; prior to doing the Yee Jee Keem Yeung Ma AKA 'The mother of all stances'

"Spellings" vary for SLT as for "everything" else WT related, as there is no standardized Wing Chun terminology.

"Opening" Hoi(1) = to open. Sik(1) = type, pattern, form, to explain.

"Studying" Hoi(6) = to study, to damage, 12th Earthly branch of Chinese Astrology.

"Eating" Sik(6) = to eat.

"Dealing" Sik(1) = to deal with, to defeat, to recognise, to know, to rest, to cherish, to erode.

"Opening" Explaining" "Damaging" "Studying" "Dealing" "Defeating" "Recognising" "Knowing" "Resting" "Cherishing" "Eroding" Hoi Sik' a name with many connotations within the first moment and movements, of SLT

"Wing" Chun is never fixed or written in stone, "adapting" is highly recommended; for example in SLT first form.

"Scrapping" = 'Gwaat' also the same movement is "Freeing" = 'Tuet', whilst it is also "Replacing" = 'Tai' in which 'Tai' is already designated to rising, where appropriately "rising" is named Tai Gou.

"Kno-wing" one movement has three distinct elements: ('Gwaat' "Scrapping"') (Tuet "Freeing"') (Tai "Replacing") Gwaat sau, Tuet sau, Tai sau.

"Mastering" this one technique aspect having three possibilities, gets a tad more "interesting" as Gwaat = "Scrapping" also means "Digging" and Gwat Tau = bone.

"Adding" another twist to this, Gwaat, Tuet, Tai, with all three names "representing" the same movement, a fourth is also "waiting" in the Wings, namely "Slicing" Bridge = Chit3 Kiu4.

"Assigning" Chit3 kiu4 (Slicing Bridge) could be reasonably named as the big sister of the 3 "sibling's".

"During" SLT "assuming" Chit3 is now the big sister, the three moves done consecutively, perhaps this is the moment to make use of "sounding" each one of three younger sisters names; 'Gwaat' 'Tuet' 'Tai' as some like to use terminology whilst "practicing" forms.

"Coinciding" Chit3 and the number Saam3 (both having the same tone number3) in Cantones; therefore "calling" Chit Saam with the tones "Chit3 Saam3" as the big sister of Gwat, Tuet, Tai, fits perfectly.

"Appointing" and "personifying" Chit kiu Saam (Slicing bridge 3) "Helping" the triplet's "Siblings" Wings: Gwat, Tuet, Tai.

"Naming" "things" with the use of family members, is very much a Confucius concept, found throughout Chinese scriptures, which helps relate "Complexing" and "Confusing" ideas in a way that is easily understood by all.

"Looking" further in to "naming" other techniques with more than one name, it is not a problem to make a new inclusive term, with multiple names, as it is for your needs alone towards "becoming" effective in any way you feel fit to do so.

"Something" extra "Paau" here in, it is matched with "casting" as with a Bong sau.

"Shedding" a new light on Paau "being", "adding" "something" extra to "something" usually associated with a Bong, yet "going" far beyond that a Paau could be added to "anything" "giving" it that "something" extra.

"Firing" cannon balls that have been wrapped in paper (paau3 zoeng3 = firecracker) and set ablaze and fired at the enemy is "adding" Paau.

"Kicking" "punching" or "striking" "adding" Paau could be as simple as "putting" body mass behind them, "giving" an extra ordinary amount of power delivery far beyond what is usally expected; Paau2 = Run; Wun6 bou6 paau2 = "Jogging"

"Showing" off before a fight by cussing and swearing = dau3 paau1

"Simplifying" is after all the way of "Wing" Chun, by adding a little Paau in to all movements giving that "something" extra which could also be "utilising" "sticking" and controlling attributes.

"Introducing" "ing" in to the picture (as "abstracting" as it might seem) does have a language of it's own to draw from "helping" without "hindering"

"Employing" "Ing" "conceptualizing" "intersting" enough, stays within the realm of both English and Chinese, without "competing" or "complicating" rather its "complementing" and "improving" by "implementing" and "maintaining" by "simplifying" and "determining" with "mirroring" and "juxtaposing" whilst "comparing" and "differentiating" without "disrupting" "anything"

"Awakening" these individual "ing" word's in this "listing" should be considered as "something" similar to "seedling's" that can grow with a type of intellectual "watering" with a little time and "nurturing" and "understanding" while as "complexing" as it might seem at first, "depending" on each person's "processing" capacities, they will have different "meanings" for "expanding" awareness and "developing" concepts that otherwise could be "laying" in "waiting" indefinitely.

"Becoming" "confusing" not to worry, as the most "welcoming" special "ing" word of all is "simplifying"

"Exploring" and "Exploiting" is up to you for the "tackling" and "taking"

"Emphasizing" "Utilising" and "Prioritising" is the key to "Unlocking" and "Revealing the deeper "meanings" of "ing"

"Keeping" in mind: "Beginning" "Ongoing" "Completing" Or "Starting" Continuing" "Finishing" is to your "Choosing"

"Suggesting" "Helping" "Optimising" "Selecting" "Focusing" "Targeting" "Personalisinng" "Tailoring" "Singling" out "ing" words "Pertaining" to your needs.

"Promulgating" the "Ing" in "Wing" Chun "Representing" "Maintaining" "Containing": "Ing"-rained" "Ing"-enious" "Ing"-redients"

"Recognizing" "Identifying" "Naming" "Classifying" "Organizing" "Making" "Retrieving" the "Ing" "endings" ASAP

"Looking" for example at "Tan" means to swallow or gulp, also, to go backwards, but has been changed and adapted to the word (Tansow) "spreading" hand instead, to help with the concept of "Dispersing" energy; also "knowing" this original "meaning" and "taking" it a little further "Tan(1) Toi(3)" = is to take in and send out, in large quantities.

"Something" familiar to an English expression is "Tan(1) Tan(1) Toi(3) Toi(3)" = is to hum and haw, as in "mumbling" to hide "something" or to hold "something" back... Wing Chun deceptive hands and feet (ghost kick) testifies to that.

"Changing" and "simplifying" has its way of "thinking" and "reasonings" but "knowing" true "meanings" has its advantages also, if there is such a thing as true, perhaps markers or sign posts "giving" directions is equally sufficient enough without the need for "overwhelming" interpretations.

"Prescribing" to take the translation/concepts given here for reasons of "Simplifying" and later "Modifying" them at a later date for "Clarifying" them in this list below, as they are not exact translations, but moreover close to as needed or open to interpretation (as good as) instead.

"Having" a none overly "commiting" approach to "things" is very much in line with "Wing" Chun's M.O. Modus Operandi = ( Latin for) Method of "Operating"

"Noticing" that there are many "ing" "endings"/suffixes, and no "ing" "beginnings/ prefixes in "Wing" Chun terminology; with the precept of "don't start fights but rather to end them"

"To-ing" and "Throw-ing" "Work-ing" and "Play-ing" "Sleep-ing" and "Awaken-ing" "ings" "Will-ing" "Help-ing" "Reveal-ing" "Organiz-ing" "Differentiat-ing"

"Describing" with "ings" this "sampling" of Elbo-Wing-Chun "Striking" techniques "making" "things" easier in order for "knowing" and "applying" them confidently.

"Emphasizing" "Cogitating" "Including" "Practicing" "Moving" "Relaxing" "Coordinating" "Developing" an awareness of their distinctive differences between one and another.

"Generalizing" quickly saves time over "analysing" can lose valuable needed time, in a confrontational situation.

"Neutralising" an attack and an instantaneous response from you is to do something appropriate about it, this involves moving/evading and invading/attacking faster than thought.

"Moving" with Swiftness Quickness Instantaneous response and resolution, faster than a heart beat or the blink of an eye.

"Being" alive, alert and focused, "making" sure that you have your body aimed properly similar to a gun, lock and loaded to react and release your weapons towards "defeating" the opponent, without hesitation, delay or doubts.

"Originating" in China, Wing Chun has caught the imagination of many people all over the world, as it has become increasingly popular due to movies but beyond that, there are those that practice and understanding that it is not just a fighting art but also useful in other ways, such as developing coordination and silmutanious useful Yin Yang principles of adaptating to change through out life.

"Developing" and "using" quick reflexes is important in the right time and place same hold true with "slowing" down "during" meditation.

"Referencing" quickly is the idea with this list above to incorporate and make use of the power these chosed words in an instant.

"Reflecting" "Paralleling" "Practicing"

"Regarding" this list above, it is just a small sample of Wing Chun terminology with many hundreds more to be included; as this topic progresses.

"Getting" bogged down with too much terminology is not "helping" anyone, "learning" "digesting" and "improving" from these interpretations is advisable.

"Modifying" "Corresponding" "ing" words accordingly, towards "improving" wherever possible.

"Making" room for more "elaborating" many sections of this topic have been collected and linked to new stand alone topics throughout this thread; as there is much to be said here in.

"Forewarning" as each entry in this list has been given a "Corresponding" "ing" many however have more than one "meaning" that will need further "explaining" far more than what is "showing" here example 'Chum' and 'Jum' could be both "Sinking" and "Seeking"

"Elaborating" further on the Jum/"sinking" concept, as there are different types of "Sinking" as it is intended towards a "resting" type of "Sinking" ("using" natural weight or pressure) consider it as a type of "Neutral Sinking" similar to a spider on a web that is in waiting till the fly becomes trapped (sensing vibrations) as when the Spider becomes aware of movement "Knowing" that it is from elsewhere it suddenly "springs" into action; another very different type of "sinking" called 'Song' a principle in Tai Chi.

"Exampling" also Chann (as in "Scooping" sand with the hand, a palm up chop) and Lau 'Gerk' ("Scooping" the opponent's (upwards and forwards) leg/Gerk for a take down) are both "Scooping" but executed very differently, another scoop (3) is 'Kau' (meaning concave) similar to parrying by boxers (have paired it to "hooking" which has nothing to do with a hook punch in the list above)

"Taking" a second look at this list above again and "considering" that Bruce Lee's, Jeet Kuen Do / The way of the "Intercepting" fist, was developed from a one word concept, that "being" "Jeet- Intercepting" then one could realise the possibilities contained within are far greater than mere translations.

"Studying" English or already "speaking" it, students of martial arts "Inquiring" and "wanting" to develop a deeper "understanding" of "Wing" Chun, then the "ing" in "Wing" Chun will hopefully now have a deeper "meaning" after "becoming" equated with this list of "ing" words above and below, without "confusing" translations to remember.

"Trying" to understand Chinese terms, can become lost or obscure when translated in to English, that loses there distinctive "meanings" where the "ing" concept can help towards "combating" and "rectifying" without "compromising" "anything"

"Mining" for Cantonese "Wing" Chun terminology and "finding" appropriate information about their deeper "meanings" will without a doubt give a student a very important ingredient for developing appropriately and give an edge over those that do not investigate this aspect at all.

"Having" an almost child like quality of "understanding" here, of "marking" with "ing" that is simply "sewing" and "threading" "helping" towards "conceptualising" ideas to "becoming" simpler by "demystifying" them.

"Marketing" on the other hand, would have you belive otherwise:

"Sensationalising" "Wing" Chun terminology, once only known by closed door students, behind closed doors never more "Exaggerating"

"Knowing" and "having" martial art secrets was once a viable option against rival families as to have this knowledge could be compromise and used against them.

"Changing" from secrecy (in the past) to open doors policy has managed to create an all is welcome attitude, creating opportunities to learn when in the past, this was next to near impossible.

"Believing" that Chinese have a word or expression for "everything" where Wing Chun terminology has been "accumulating" for hundreds of years (300) is far too rich to fathom overnight as it will take many years or perhaps it will be an "everlasting" venture.

"Using" what you need and "discarding" the rest.
comes in to play, as well as,
what ever comes out of these hands is Wing Chun.

"Comprehending" that Wing Chun is a huge topic, then "knowing" this, it is easier to understand the necessity of first "learning" second "discarding" and third "refining" until it becomes "rewarding" all in all, a necessary part of "becoming" Wing Chun.

"Incorporating" "connecting" and "focusing" with many of these "ing" words "facilitating" in "becoming" part of the subconscious problem "solving" mechanism, "working" away silently and effortlessly.

"During" "Explaining" techniques from others, when "ing" words are used "having" learned the vocabulary and ideas behind them already, will make for "Comprehending" them alot easier than not; also "using" them for yourself for "explanating" your ideas will become in time second nature to you.

"Something" to be said about "ing" words? Is that that "explaining" with them makes for "focusing" on concepts allot easier than not.

"Anything" and "Everything" "concerning" "ing" words from "Starting" "explaning" to "closing" "Finishing" are there for the "taking" especially for "elaborating"

"Creating" and "adding" new terminology to "Wing" Chun is to mind a great way towards "understanding" its many application and benefits, "starting" from "fighting" skills to "improving" health and coordination, to "promoting" education.

"Introducing" new terminology, is essentially easier than it appears to be, as all that is needed is to use a Cantonese action word, from a sentence that starts with 'to' and then add the word 'Sau' = hand/arm, as from there the concept can grow and expand in to many more ideas.

(NEWing Term 1)
"Gaining" and "Receiving" Dak* Sau = '"Gaining" hand', absorbing, "being" difficult to be unbalanced also using" the closest hand to close the gap to strike with and or also for "defending" (Dak* = to complete, to win, to gain, to receive, to fit)

(NEWing Term 2)
"Enticing" and "Baiting" Daam* Sau = '"Enticing" hand' by "being" stoic/stone like, "displaying" courage and gall, yet "being" thin and light.

"Developing" and "Determining" new terminology here is just for fun and to also show how Wing Chun terminology has grown and evolved over time, that it's intent is to be simple direct and effective; also ambiguous enough to expand upon.

"Winning" " ing" words "Intending" to "being" used for "paving" your way towards "Understanding" and "Selecting" by using such words as:







"Concadinating" "Compacting" "Combining" them with, (as mentioned ealier) over 12500 other "ings" thus;

"Allowing" "ing" words to be a part of your vocabulary, is also "arming" yourself and "Internalizing" your protection mechanism, as not all "fighting" conflicts are expressed physically; as the art of "fighting" without "fighting" includes a rich vocabulary of "ing" words.

"Regarding" "wording", "mastering" and "participating" in "saying" what you mean and "meaning" what you say, is "utilising" and "articulating" in a way "Inclining" towards "perfecting" "understanding" in "communicating" with others.

"Kno-wing" about the "ing" in the "Wing" there is no longer the need for "Winging" it!.
("Excusing" the pun) but not really, as "using" words that are "punning" that having two "meanings" is extremely clever and witty; used the world over.

English: Pun.
Portuguese: Trocadilho.
Chinese: 双关语

"Learning" cognates, one word having the same "meaning" or close to, in two different languages.

"Enabling" it possible to learn many languages in a short amount of time, is due to there being already 1000's of words in a person's native tongue, corresponding these words to a second language.

"Having" 44 countries in Europe, "Sitting" close to each other, loan words and root words "having" been Incorporated or adopted into each others language over the centuries, due to people "Visiting" "Invading" "Raiding" "Battling" "Emigrating" "Settling" "Trading" "Enslaving" "Conquering"

"Sharing" a similar alphabet system or close to is also a big plus in learning a second language, as newly created alphabet systems have been developed for that very reason between Chinese and English.

"Realising" that approximately 1 out of 3 words between Spanish and English (for instance) have an equivalent "corresponding" similar "sounding" and "meaning" word, which makes for "learning" each other's language alot easier; than compared with any Asian country.

"Figuring" out which words to focus on, is based "depending" on root words usually, in Europe "being" Latin and Greek.

"Confusing" are false friends congnates, that don't seem to be what they sound like, but like "everything" else makes "learning" more "interesting" with some "challenging" hurdles to consider.

"Wing" Chun terminology being Chinese, in a Cantonese dialect, written in characters (Logograms) and not words or having a similar alphabet system, just exemplifies the differences and difficulties in learning vocabulary that is different to one's own native language.

"Having" a Jyutping alphabet to use it is possible to (eventually) learn how to pronounce Cantonese properly, more important is being able to understand what is being explained by native speakers.

"Interpreting" Wing Chun terminology without cognates to draw from is understandably difficult but not impossible.

"Corresponding" Cantonese Wing Chun terminology with English "ing" words, is the basis for which "understanding" can be achieved through "treating" these words similar to a type of sign post, that has two languages on it.

"Explaining" from Cantonese (to ...) in to an "English" "ing" word. For example 'Gwaat' means " To scrape" which changes in to an "ing" "Scraping" word. As for in "Wing" Chun, Scrapping, Punching, Or Kicking is at the heart of the terminology.

"Seeing" Double and "doing" duality, is an important aspect in respect to "Wing" Chun.

"Knowing" the difference in the little details makes for a well informed Wing Chun fighter, example, Sau Jeong = Palm hand, well to be more precise that relates exactly to the flat middle part of the palm, as sau jeong (also means) = flat piece of wood.

"Differentiating" Sau2 baan2 = palm hand, the difference is, Sau2 Jeong2 is relating to a very specific place or part of the palm with which to strike with.

"Progressing" to "understanding" is "leading" to, Lien Siu Dai Da / Economy of Motion ("Linking" "Defending" & "Attacking") by "maintaining" strength in both equally Simultaneously; which is clever and effective by "coordinating" and "practicing" diligently, "aiming" for "Mastering" "Wing" Chun, by: "Blending" / "Combining" / "Mixing" / "Joining" / "Merging" / "Integrating" / "Fusing" / "Uniting" / "Amalgamating" / "Associating" / "Composing" / "Commingling" / "Unifying" ( 'Dai Da' is an onoamatapia equivalent to 'Tick Tock' in English)

"Ing" words are intelligent words, as they convey information in a direct concise fashion, without much room for "misunderstandings" similar to the M.O. of "Wing" Chun; "compacting" yet direct and to the point.

"Mirroring" similarties again, is the duality of "using" "Wing" Chun as a business model, similar to Myomoto Musashi for Japanese corporate executives.

"Bank-"ing"" words also needed in the business sector, as to them time is money.

"Selling" and or "Buying" Wing Chun for business concepts, becoming more efficient to beat the competition, for instance "using" direct "marketing" strategies, also:
Investing Franchising Negotiating Merchandising Renting Holding(s) Profiting Factoring Sharing Advertising Retailing Consuming Contracting Minimizing Mining Producing Growing Demading Invoicing Paying Lending Saving Downsizing Networking Incorporating Liquidating Warehousing Servicing Engineering Upgrading Inflating Structuring Pricing Discounting Stocking Losing Gaining Bidding Branding Licencing Remodeling Restructuring Hiring Employing Firing Retiring Staffing Managing Directing Exporting Importing Delivering Customizing Packaging Enticing Planting Bankrupting Harvesting Generating Funding Saturating Discontinuing Positioning Transporting Accommodating Producing Reducing Bargaining Dealing Closing Capitalizing Shelving Saving Hoarding Designing Overseeing Developing Leading Boarding Representing Working Forecasting Financing Reconciling Farming Harvesting Accounting Accumulating Adding Advising Auditioning Striking Displaying Modelling Administering Administrating Merging Auctioning Shipping Receiving Outstanding Invoicing Scheming Signing Sending Documenting Meeting Deliberating Considering Speculating Appointing Appealing Desiring Politicking Clocking Exploiting Deligating Finalizing Domineering Exposing Reporting Filing Processing Charging Crediting Withdrawing Monopolising Acquisitioning Benchmarking Dumping Hot-desking Economising Globalising Fluctuating Industrialising Innovating Merging Peaking Partnering Patenting Promoting Recruiting Subsidising Speculating Targeting Swindling Sweetening Trending Upgrading Trailing Training Whistleblowing Tracking Depositing Transacting Trading Managing Speculating Laundering Agreeing Strategising

("Paralleling" Business and Wing Chun is found in "being" efficient and the Centre line theories)

"Shaolin(g) monks "studying" the "fighting" skills in nature with animals, birds, reptiles and insects, that are not immune from the "ing" by "biting" "clawing" "stinging" or "pecking"...

"Living" creatures "surviving" by "feeding" "breeding" and "multiplying" by "hunting" "grazing" or "gathering" "involving" "attacking" "flocking" and "protecting"...

"Wing" Chun was inspired and invented (by "watching" a Crane fighting a snake) by a female Shaolin monk 'Ng Mui' (Ng = female monk and Mui = Rose/Plum/Berry/) and she taught and named the system after another woman, her student 'Wing Chun, where "multitasking" is more famously known for "being" a woman's attribute than it is for a man.

"Providing" from nature for women (in born "Protecting" skills) "something" extra namely "mothering" "parenting" or "nurturing" where "juggling" life skills are important factors for "maintaining" oneself and "contributing" to "helping" towards "raising" a family; sometimes single handedly if the need arises.

"Dealing" with dualism," Wing" Chun, is not only "gaining" information with "seeing" alone but also with "touching" "practicing" to enhance sensitivity, what is called, Chi Sau/Sticky Hands; once again not "Limiting" to just hands but "allowing" all viable body parts to participate in "Sticking" when needed.

"Leaving" the nest from this Wing Chun topic (but not very far transferred to) Intro-Chi-Sau-Wing-Chun-Way link:

"Starting" with one thing, then "graduating" further "Everything" in "Wing" Chun (all techniques) should be done in two's simultaneously, then "developing" once again further in to "using" three or more if possible, in variety of ways, such as for instance, Lin Wan Jern, (multiple palm strikes) or the infamous "Wing" Chun chain punches.

"Coordinating" and "juggling" simultaneously "Manovering" "kicking" "Deflecting" "Punching" "utilising" all possible, viable, worthwhile, capabilities.

"Wording" similarities with "Wing" Chun : A single word for instance can have only one syllable, such as "con" as other words can have two, such as "con-tain, and three "con-tain-ing, and so on; or another way at looking at it is by using contractions or reductions.

"Wing" Chun punch(s) can be similar to a type of syllable, connecting-deflecting-striking all three contained in to one movement, that only the user knows and the recipient never will... By: Abbreviating / Shortening / Compressing / Truncating / Contracting / Reducing / Cutting / Condensing / Optimising / Summarising / Skimping / Briefing / Compacting / Consolidating / Concentrating / Compounding

"Regarding " Wing Chun "being" a conceptual martial art, with the idea of where never "ending" "exploring" "learning" and "investigating" is ever present.

"Eating" and "Drinking" never "escaping" from the Wing Chun, ABC, Always Be "Conditioning".

"Incorporating" shapes such as 'Bong sau' when "pouring" water in to a cup, or "holding" the cup in a 'fook sau' or "holding" a plate of food with a 'Tan sau'

"Holding" food close to the mouth when eating out of a rice bowl, is very Chinese, this works well for practing and adhearing to Wing Chun's M.O. of efficiency, speed, timing and accuracy; "Sitting" in a "Squatting" position only adds to the occasion with a little extra effort.

"Pilling" food on to one plate (western style) is also efficient as it saves on less "washing" up as opposed to "eating" from many small bowls.

"Making" a salad and "eating" from the same (stainless steel bowl) that all the ingredients were mixed in is highly efficient and practical, similar in a Wing Chun Way.

"Chopping" food and long English words in to small amounts also, is another way possible towards "understanding" how to learn Wing Chun terminology, with small amounts but often is said to be the best way.

"Crossing" the line between Westerners and Oriental and visa versa has an "interesting" analogy, as someone as I am is considered to be a boiled egg (white on the outside and yellow on the inside) whist the opposite is called a banana (white on the inside and yellow on the outside) not "taking" either one as being or considered derogatory or racist in the slightest.

"Differentiating" physiques as Westerners focus more on upper body "developing" a "Triangulating" look, often exaggerated in cartoons with the bull "fighting" matador, whilst Oriental ways, are hardly noticeable externally, by "developing" the legs for stability, balance, speed and grace

"Attending" a Chinese Buddhist temple in my distant past (it not being a Shaolin kung fu shrine) and "studying" Mandarin (evening classes) was most certainly a good way towards "becoming" emerged in to oriental ways and "understanding" their deeper "meanings" and customs.

"According" to the Buddhist priest, he welcomed and considered me to be a reincarnation of a Chinese warrior, as cannot prove it one way or another, it does however explain how open minded their " Buddhist reasoning" for "things" are.

"Admitting" openly "having" a deep connection, physically and spiritually with Chinese beyond reasonable explanations or answers, perhaps reincarnation for the purpose of "explaining" Wing Chun Cantonese/Chinese terminology is the reason why, if not it makes for an "interesting" story any how.

"Remembering" the three pillars of Wing Chun, the easy way as "Begging" "Looking" "Pawing"

"Begging" 'Tan sau' as the hand is palm up as if asking for money.

"Looking" ' Bong sau' as "looking" at the time in the usual way when "wearing" a wrist watch.

"Pawing" 'Fook sau' the way a dog hooks its paws on the fence, when standing on its hind legs.

"Starting" With some sentence TIPS (sentence openers) with "ing" words is a good strategy in "explaining" what you want to say, in martial arts without "having" to say the word "I" this and I that, or I think this and I think that...because the topic that you really want to talk about, will seem more like to others, seemingly what you think about the topic, rather than what is being discussed.

"Tipp-ing" = T.I.P.S = 'To Insure Proper/Prompt Service'-ing

"Starting" sentences and "Putting" emphasis on "ing" words at the "beginning"

"Making" use of a "gripping" the attention of the listener, by way of "ing" is "Introducing" opinions without "sounding" opinionated.

"Starting" out by "moving" in...

"Telegraphing" information about your attacks...

"Wedging" "opening" "spreading" "deviding" are closely related but are...

"Leaving" the nest from this Wing Chun topic (but not very far transferred to) Wing-Tips-Wing-Chun-Way link:

"Learning" that for instance "Bong Sao" AKA the Chicken "Wing" "deflecting" Arm manouevre, is only one (of many) as an introduction to the concept of 'flanking', in the first form of "Sil lim Tao" The Way of the little idea; all and each other terms need to be explored independently and indeed individually, towards "becoming" fully aware of their deepest "meanings"

"Leaving" the nest from this Wing Chun topic (but not very far transferred to) Intro-Bong-Sau-Wing-Chun-Way link:

"Lookiing" in to other "ing" words such as the "circling" hand "Huen Sao" is only an introduction to the many concepts of "circling" that can be utilised:

"Including" Lap, circuit, circulate, circle, bypass, coil, detour, revolve, wheel, surround, encircle, encompass, rotate, enclose, inclose, compass, go round, turn, transfer, shift, convey, revolve, return, go back, answer, turn around, detour, move around, wave, rock, shake, sway, curving...
