Hey there! This is Steve Grogan, founder of Geek Wing Chun Inc.
Over the years, I've met a lot of people who want to get better at Wing Chun, but for one reason or another, they can't.
Have you ever said or thought one of the following?
If any of these ring a bell, then you've come to the right place! My goal is to show you how you can train even if you're unable to make it to class often.
I have 3 jobs, 4 kids, appointments, exercise, errands, and everything that the average person has, PLUS my martial arts training...yet somehow I found a way to fit everything in there, and I keep improving with each passing day!
My hope is that you will learn from my example, by either following my training routine OR creating one of your own so you can also get better at Wing Chun!
A WORD OF CAUTION BEFORE YOU CONTINUE...
The kind of training I’m proposing is meant to supplement, NOT REPLACE, training in person (at least once a week) with a legitimate Sifu.
No martial art training should be undertaken alone, as you can develop some bad habits. Try to find a teacher BEFORE engaging in any of the routines that I recommend on this site or in any of my ebooks/videos.
I thought some of you might like to know what material you can expect, so I have included the schedule, along with nifty names that I created for each day.
One thing you'll notice from the titles is that I'm a HUGE fan of a literary technique called “alliteration.” That’s the writer in me. I offer no apologies for that; after all, writing was my first artistic love LONG before Wing Chun!
Tuesday Training Tips
This day will feature videos and articles focusing on Wing Chun training. Subject matter will include (but not be limited to):
...and the like.
I also plan on browsing the web for critiques of Wing Chun and offering an alternate take on what others call the "flaws" of the system.
Thursday Thoughts & Therapy
As some of you may notice when you read through this site, I am a
thinker. (Some might say an OVER-thinker.) Over time, I've come to realize a lot of ideas/concepts/theories in Wing
Chun can be applied to everyday life.This day's material will be devoted to showing how YOU can inject a little martial arts philosophy into your dealings with family, friends, loved ones, and coworkers.
Also, I'm a firm believer in the idea that, in order to be healthy, you must pay attention to your mental AND physical state. Illnesses like depression, anxiety, and other disorders can keep you from feeling motivated to train or to even want to get out of bed.
Therefore, I am going to make it a point to tackle such issues on this site. Since I also suffer from some mental afflictions, I think it's the least I can do.
As the title implies, I will be summing up how the week went in relation to:
PS: Those of you who are observant might notice those words come right from the Geek Wing Chun Inc. banner. :-)
There could be lots of different features on this day.
...and so on. It really just depends on what I feel like sharing!
So there you have it: an overview of what purpose this site serves, and what you can expect to see on it. I am excited to start this adventure, and I hope you join me on it. If you gain any inspiration from my videos or ebooks, or if you come up with training routines of your own, please share them with me.
Thanks for stopping in, and I look forward to our future together!
