Fightin' Words #37 :The Straight Blast is NOT Wing Chun's "Go To" Weapon!

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.
