This clip shows an explanation of the use of the last kick in the final section of the wooden dummy. Its also the same kick that alerted me to the existence of another, lesser known model of what Ip Man’s Wing Chun is about.
This alternative model explains much more comprehensively Ip Man’s prowess in the use of kicks. If I have stuck to the other earlier models I had learned I would still be in the dark.
The Ip Man Question, 2nd Edition now renamed The Ip Man Questions presents this little known model of Ip Man’s Wing Chun as a style that is long range rather than short range, uses springy waist power rather than straight forward linear body momentum and emphasizes kicking much more than the average Ip Man style.
