ABOUT THIS VIDEO: I am not sure where this rumor got started, but for some time now the technique known as the straight blast has been inextricably tied to Wing Chun.
I don't know how, where, or why, but it is something that most people who don't do Wing Chun believe about those who do. It is also a fact that many people misinterpret what the straight blast even is or how it's done, and it's also a fact that many people believe the straight blast is the first thing every Wing Chun practitioner does.
Guess what? It's not. No one should ever fire off a string of punches blindly. In fact, it should not be employed until you know you have the edge in the fight.
In this video, I discuss the straight blast and hopefully shed some light on this technique.
