Wing Chun Ip Man General Sayings

Quote from the movie: "If my life had four seasons, everything before 40 would be the spring."

1. There is no difference in who started to study first; the one who achieves accomplishment is first.

2. Students from the same teacher will differ in their skills.

7. Learning the techniques without developing the skills will never bring any accomplishment.

8. The ideal in Martial Arts is humanitarianism. Accomplishment uses diligence as a goal.

10. Strike when you should. Do not strike when you should not.

11. Do not be too eager to strike. Do not be afraid to strike. One who is afraid of getting hit will finally be hit.

14. Power is generated from the joints. Strength originates from the heels.

15. Store mental energy with the mind. Move Ch'i with mental energy. Exert strength with Ch'i. Generate power with strength.

25. Know the difference between Yin and Yang, real and feigned. Take advantage of any available opportunity.

29. Know your own limit in the use of power. Releasing all out is 90% of the way to defeat.

36. In a match do not expect any compassion.

37. Grasping the throat is a ruthless technique. Once commenced, it cannot be stopped.

39. Circular and straight accompany each other. Bent and straight complement one another.

40. Extreme softness enables one to be hard. Being extremely natural enables one to be agile.
