  1. I took a few semesters of aikido in college and really enjoyed it. Time-skipping to today, I will have the opportunity to take up aikido again later this year. There is also a wing chun kung fu dojo in the area. I have no background in wing chun but reading up on the art, it interest me and it appears (to the untrained layman) that the two style would complement each other. Thoughts on this from practitioners of either art?
  2. Hi all, my first post here and my first challenge. As it happens, the Wing Chun school near me is taking on beginners on Mon 9th January, coincides pretty nicely with the start of this challenge, huzzah for convenience! Anywho, this challenge is more about trying things than committing to things, with that in mind it's broken down into 4 parts: Wing Chun 3 levels to this: 1. Call and say i'll be attending the class. Completed (03/01/17) <- I'm English, so that's 3rd of January 2. Actually Attend the Class 3. Attend all beginner'
  3. My previous challenge was indeed a challenge. Now I'm discombobulated. My self-inflicted physical and mental injuries have made me wary of what I am capable of, but the weirdest part is that I'm still going. Can chalk that up to my dragon half, I know. So here are the snippets from my previous post, here to take step 2. I don't want a lot, I just want to feel like I'm a strong woman. I want to be able to go to the beach and actually wear a bathing suit. Wear shorts and maybe a dress now and again. I want to feel like I have permission to take a run along the beach. I want to workout as I
  4. Good day everyone! I really want to begin focusing on improving my Wing Chun chain punches. I'm starting them out sllllooowwwwww; I'm keeping myself relaxed up until the exact moment of impact, then recoiling the arm, relaxed, as the next punch comes in, in a straight line. Elbows in of course. Is there any other advice you could give to help me perfect the wing chun chain punches?
  5. Dear NF Monks, I am looking for a good Kung Fu school. I really wished to learn Wing Chun Kung Fu but there's apparently no school anymore in Edinburgh. However, I have found a Hung Gar school and a White Crane school. Both seem well organised, welcoming places and I would be more attracted to the Hung Gar, but I really dont know much about either. Anyone has advice/experience in these Kung Fu styles??? Many thanks! PS: I'm a 25 year old woman, didn't like Judo at all, quite enjoyed my little experiences with Karate and Kick Boxing, if that helps you advise me on which style could be b
  6. Hello~ I am a long time lurker--and to be honest very shy which is why I this is my first post. A few years ago I was reading the NF paleo articles. I was having pain in my joints--specifically my fingers and ankles and it turned out my wheat-heavy diet was the source. At this time I was working in the healthcare field and had sustained a back injury leading to sciatic in my left leg--which I had been having painful flare ups all year since the initial injury. I used Steve's articles as a guide and cut gluten, pop, and anything that came from a vending machine and went from 240 to 1
  7. Hi, I have been a long time reader of this website and decided it's time I took some action! I love taekwondo, wing chun and yoga and have been training in all three for around 2.5 years (approx 10 hours a week in total). I am faced with a problem this summer however as I won't be at home and therefore I won't be able to continue with my usual classes. My teachers press on me the importance of training alone but this is something I have never been able to do. I think if there is no one there to push me I just don't bother at all. So my main goal for this 6 week challenge is to creat
