"Doing" "Becoming" "Practising" "Wing" Chun is also a way of "thinking" a system of "combining" actions and thoughts, it is not just a way to learn martial arts but rather a way to become Wing Chun, Internally in thoughts and externally in actions.

"Interleaving" "learning" is a method where multiple subjects or topics are mixed in order to enhance "learning" blocked practice, however involves studying one topic very thoroughly before moving on to another.

"Rotating" or "mixing" things up by "interleaving" forces the mind to stay active and encourages the brain to be "adapting" to new information constantly in order to see the broader picture and how they connect with the main idea; with "something" relevant, what we now call, mixed martial arts.

"Drawing" from a wider bigger perspective "interleaving" helps to see "things" on many levels "offering" unique advantages and challenges, "compelling" the user to draw from a variety of different ways, "creating" "continuing" opportunities abound.

"Dictating" to block "learning" the brain (due to repetitive actions) slacks off because tasks "becoming" easier and less "challenging" where regularity sets in.

"Cramming" information in to blocks to learn seems practical but "spacing" out information helps "recovering" "retrieving"and "remembering" information better in the long term.

"Memorizing" takes time "creating" durable "lasting" impressions, in small ways, as with "Sil Lum Tao" (The Little Idea) as opposed to "trying" to learn too much too fast with little or no time is frequently referred to as cramming.

"Processing" information as opposed to "copying" "understanding" a form not by "mimicking" but "learning" the applications side by side with the movements; "making" relationships and reference points with relevant context cues.

"Pretending" always that there is a person in front of you with every move made, perhaps would seem more relevant to have learned the form with a "living" "breathing" possible opponent with real target's for reference.

"Reaching" ever closer to reality "training" sessions needn't be so long as long as the habits learned or practiced are "Impacting" a higher level of "understanding" and competence in abilities.

"Training" satisfaction, "going" up another level day by day, week by week, as gradual changes of "improving" is the key, whereas the fast track leads to fatigue, fractures and failure.

"Making" memorable mistakes and "correcting" along the way, is a very important part of the "learning" process that is also an important part of "developing" a deeper "understanding" of the information "being" shown.

"Condensing" "improving" and "restructuring" by "making" constant corrections, is the main idea of "Practice Makes Perfect"

"Simplifying" is the key to "succeeding" where many fail towards "becoming" effective in "Wing" Chun, as language becomes connected to a person's nervous system, through out a lifetime, however, it is important to integrate words with actions correctly and efficiently.

"Thinking" and "Hitting" fast, needs to be "addressing" concepts and "connecting" instantaneous actions, where they are important aspects to grasp, which fundamentally are part of "Wing" Chun's strengths.

"Reading and "learning" "Wing" Chun concepts and terminology as "being" "something" "resembling" "educating" the nervous system for the purpose of "integrating" quickness with action and thought; by "Responding" "Economising" "Connecting" instantaneously against an opponent with combined knowledge, speed, strength, and accuracy.

"Combining " and "focusing" actions with "attacking" attacks, (as there are no blocks) "Covering" "Slipping" "deflecting" whilst "defending" is preferable, with the forward intent of "striking"

"Distancing" and Closing the gap with the intent of "controlling.

"Angling" always "adapting" and "moving" in is preferable as this is the attitude to adopt, not "giving" the opponent any opportunity with space, "crowding" if necessary.

"Investigating" "stepping" "crossing" "skimming" "redirecting" "parrying" "guarding" "catching" "checking" "shooting" "bouncing" "marching" trapping" "holding" "clinching" "wording" in need of "mastering"

"Facing" "Bracing" "Chasing" "Sticking" "Adopting" the best defence is the best offence insurance policy; putting the opponent on the defensive from the word go.

"Blasting" or "blitzing" with mind, body and spirit, with the intent towards "defeating" the opponent with "Overwhelming" conviction and determination ASAP

"Exploiting" and "Delivering" strikes against the nearest target with closest weapon; even if it is used for a second other third time, with the premise of, if it worked well the first time then keep with it.

"Traversing" and "Flanking" by way of "selecting" other ideas of "going" around obstacles with personified prepositions, by "getting", around, between, under, beside, as there are more options available for the "taking" and "asking" than just "plunging" in and "going" straight through, as if "diving" head first in to rocks might not be the best option at the time.

"Commiting" and none commitment, a fundamental "Wing" Chun principle, by "being", quick, nimble and versatile, in a neutral way, of "flowing" with and "sensing" the opponent's actions, as "being" able to be in the moment and in the now without hesitation and also by not "needing" or "resorting" to "using" force against force.

"Openings" are found by "looking" for Leaks in the opponent's defences, balance is a good place to start ("upsetting" this area will help towards "exposing" other possible targets) especially so if the head drops, as wherever the head goes, so will the body, control the head control the fight.

"Selecting" pain compliance strategies, deals with "striking" vulnerable areas that helps contort the opponent's balance or root, there by "setting" up different types of traps for further "compounding" "pounding" activities, "including" sweeps, throws, and "locking" techniques.

"Baiting" and "using" feints, are especially helpful against "confusing" opponent's that are not good at "reacting" appropriately or unable to deal with information over load.

"Wing" Chun's commercialized version, of combat, is not a true reflection of its nature, as it is an intellectual system of combat not based on strength and brut force, but rather something opposite and unexpected.

"Having" no time "restraining" or finace "restricting" issues "Wing" Chun was once only practiced by the few, for self cultivation purposes and betterment and not a way to make money.

"Being" already extremely wealthy by the few, there was no need to exploit "Wing" Chun ways for profit.

"Profiting" by individuals "creating" and "forging" their own "Wing" Chun empires is the natural progression of commercialisation; which is "happening" in many other area's not just in martial arts.

"Sometimes" through out history "Wing" Chun was learned by the masses to fight opposing factions with, but for the most part, it was a medium to combine the spirit, health and intelligence.

"Criticising" here, without malice, is based on the "understanding" that important information is gathered and explained through knowledgeable individuals, that are specialists, personal type trainers, for those that can afford to pay high fees; (the movie industry has now become the place that recruits the expertise elites of our time.)

"Wing" Chun to be used effectively needs a great amount of time to make it viable and not just as a hobby; so much time in fact to become "Wing" Chun, fully initiated, fully intergrated, fully committed, with all aspects of "living" "during" work, rest, eat, sleep and play.

"Exploiting" certain "Wing" Chun aspects for self defence purposes is just one branch from the tree, which can help individuals with information about self protection mechanisms and body mechanics.

"Fighting" and self defence are two aspects of the same coin, "confusing" one with the other is the dangerous part for those "beginning" "practicing" Wing Chun; especially for a short amount of time.

"Comprehending" yin/yang for westerners and "combining" it into Wing Chun is an important factor as without this concept "everything" will be either, too hard or too soft (over or under done) "al dente" having the right texture when "cooking" pasta is the nearest explanation towards "understanding" the idea.

"Explaining" why there is understandably alot of doubt and confusion about the effectiveness of "Wing" Chun, among the masses, as it is beyond the "understanding" of many that try to fathom its depths, is without a doubt not due to "being" intelligent enough, but rather due to "restraining" factors of not "having" sufficient quality spare time to study and practice.

"Posing" with "Wing" Chun as a style, is not good enough to use it effectively, similiar to false friend cognates, which will only help the user to "becoming" damaged, if unaware of its pitfalls.

"Styling "Wing" Chun by posing (recognising Wing Chun shapes) is not advisable as firstly "Wing" Chun is a system, secondly "during" a fight "nothing" "Wing" Chungish should be seen, as it is the concepts that take over where to everyone else it is a blur, but to the Chunner it is "happening" very fast, in a type of slooow moootion; often popularized in movies.

"Having" lineage, credibility and credentials definitely helps a student towards "becoming" effective with "Wing" Chun, but still this is no guarantee as there is still the question of if the one "learning" is suited to the system, due to "lacking" speed, sufficient strength and coordination, also "being" able to implement concepts effectively.

"Racing" car drivers and "Wing" Chun fighters have much in common, both concerned with "moving" at high speed with keen sight and also "using" a highly developed way of "sensing" by "using" tactical and vibrational information transmitted through touch from the body, through to the brain, which processes split second reactions far beyond what is considered normal to everyone else.

"Wing" Chun has common traits with stand up Silat, with it "being" appropriate for affluent merchants, that once preferred "dealing" with conflict in a manner that doesn't involve "rolling" on the ground "getting" dirty.

"Combating" on "moving" or swaying" surfaces, such as on narrow makeshift bridges and in cramp locations such as boats (not inland) is the connection between stand up Silat and "Wing" Chun, with both "sharing" "conceptualising" strategies to quickly dispense with unprovoked attacks.

"Flanking" and not "Yielding" but rather "Baiting" are used frequently with stand up Silat, "maintaining" contact and proper "striking" distance, "exaggerating" movements (due to bulky clothing) are some traits that are seemingly contradictory to "Wing" Chun's M.O.

"Combining" stand up Silat with "Wing" Chun is highly advantageous for the user; as Yin/Yang "being" complimentary opposites these two Systems of combat compliment each other remarkably well.

"Sharing" concepts with stand up "Silat" and "Wing" Chun does shine a new light on "things", as stand up Silat also has its elbows close to the body even more so than "Wing" Chun, not only to protect one's own body but also makes weapons/hands closer to attack the opponent's.

"Punching" along the vertical centre line "dividing" the opponent's body in to two halves primarily "starting" with the soft targets of the head (nose, throat, eyes) whereas in stand up Silat the body is the main target in order to drop the opponent's head to control it and then to begin "finishing" touches.

"Mixing" martial arts is "nothing" new, with JKD, Silat, Kali, Muay Tai and "Wing" Chun, is a highly versatile, viable and volatile cocktail combination, as there are always cross overs in techniques and contrasts to adapt or to be aware of the differences.

"Using" brains over brawn, "containing" highly developed skills "dealing" with self "preserving" wealth, status and especially their expensive "clothing" "Wing" Chun is ideal for those who have the time and money towards "becoming" effective in this system
