Is Wing Tsun for You?
I titled this page "Is Wing Tsun for You" to help you answer this vital question for yourself.
After all, what good is it if you learn and practice the best martial art or self defense in the world, but it just isn't what you need, or even really want?
I'll give you an example: I love the Saturn Sky roadster as a car. It looks really hot, has great performance stats, and Saturn is a top-notch car company - but when I test drove one, I felt as if I was trapped in a coffin!
No leg room, no elbow room, the windows all around me were way up too high, the gear shift wasn't easy to reach, and I just felt so hemmed-in from all sides. Great car, just not the right car for me. So I didn't buy it.
Similarly, to find out whether Wing Tsun is right for you, you have to go beyond looking at a few videos and listening to what Joe Rogan has to say about it. You literally have to test drive it yourself - but is even that really worth your time?
The real question here is: who are you, and what do you want?
Will there Be Such a Thing as 'Wing Tsun and You'?
Are you a serious person? Do you like to go deep into the things or subjects that interest you, or do you prefer to skim along the surface and go from one 'next thing' to another?
On the other hand, do you like to have fun and feel free to ask questions and express yourself while learning something worthwhile, or do you prefer to operate in a super-regimented environment where cracking a joke or questioning something you are being taught is seriously frowned upon?
Is your main focus to lose weight and get fit to where you don't really care what you are learning that lets you achieve these goals?
Or do you want to also learn something that really gets 'into your system' and then comes out spontaneously when it's time to save your rear-end in a life or death confrontation?
Do you want to compete in cage fights to make yourself a name and get rich in the process?
Or do you want to learn and practice something that stays with you for the rest of your life, where every movement and every tactic you learn makes total sense and allows you as a weaker person stand up to someone who is much bigger, badder, and scarier than you?
As you can tell, you may have to do some serious soul-searching before you decide to join, or even try out, a Wing Tsun class in my school.
Please give this some serious thought.
The good part is, though, that thinking about these questions and your answers to them may go a long way in helping you eventually make this decision.
If you have any questions about this topic, just hit me up on Facebook under my
profile and message me. I will do my best to answer any questions you may have.
There is only one condition: You have to live in or near Houston, Texas for me to take time to answer you, or you have to at least be toying with the idea of having me come to your city to teach a seminar you and a small group of friends.
Great! I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
All the Best,
