Martial arts training partners wanted

Postby genadyc » Thu, 16 Dec 2010 4:15 pm

Hi , I am practicing Vietnamese version of wing chun and looking for somebody to train with. All my regular trainig partnersquite far from here ( Vietnam and Israel) :(
If somebody wants to join but don't have previous experience or practiced some other style - you are welcome to join.

It is not an organized club so practicing will be somewhere outdoors.

P.S. for moderators : it is not an advertisement and i am not commercial organisation representative. Just looking for people to train with.
Thanks :)

Have you tried looking for a local Ving Chun club? I'm pretty sure there is a number of them in Singapore teaching different styles.

Here in Singapore most of the clubs teaches Hong Kong wing chun.
Vietnamese style is completely different . More soft and more complicated.
And totally different "engine". I mean fight tactics , power generation , basic movements and so on....

So i can't practise in local clubs without moving to completely different style :)

Just to clarify: you're calling for martial artists, not specifically Vietnam wing chun practitioners?

Hi there,

I used to practice a lot of WC, and I need to get back into it. I'd be interested in a new training partner. My sifu was Randy Williams, although I trained with others. I guess my WC is HK based, although I consider myself to be adaptable.

Let me know if you have time this weekend, I may be able to train, depending on where and when.

Best regards
Carl

Interested in learning Wing Chun

Hi Genadyc,

Saw your post that you are looking for somebody to train wing chun, even those without experience and I am one that without experience. Have you found one? Can I join?

Thanks
