A LOT of people describe wing chun as a martial art ideal for smaller people. I am a rather large person, but interested in learning this martial art. Can I?
Sifu Victor Botes from the Fighting Spirit Boxing & Martial Arts Club in South Africa, http://www.fightingspirit.co.za replies:
The Wing Chun system is based on structure.
First, you learn all about “self structure” then you learn about “applied structure.”
That is all about using your structure against other people. If your size is anyone’s problem, I think it may be the other persons problem, but not yours.
Just do it and learn how to utilize your body to your advantage.
