Wing Chun Volume 2 by William Cheung
This Volume of Wing Chun lessons demonstrates the Bil Jee form, the third form of Wing Chun after Sil Lim Tao and Chum Kilj, both of which were demonstrated in Volume 1. The demonstration is done twice by William Cheung. After the second demonstration, William Cheung's assistant performs broken sequences of moves from the Bil Jee form for which William Cheung explains and demonstrates the application of the sequence of moves.
Next, William Cheung instructs about the pressure point targets on the body of the opponent to strike. This is called dim mak in chinese. In Japanese styles, it's called atemi or sometimes kyusho.
William Cheung prepares us for Chi Sao, a very unique exercise to develop ambidextrious skill in hand techniques, reflexes, harmony with the opponent's kinetic energy to sharpen perception, timing and in general fluid execution of techniques, by having us practice the moves of Chi Sao with one hand while the other is stationary on the hip. Then, the other hand is put through the same drill while the first hand is held stationary on the hip.
William Cheung gradually instructs us into using both hands in Chi Sao exercises and introduces techniques, tactics and short strategies to trap the opponents hands and arms to open up his defense and imobilize his arms by thoughtful manuevering and keeping William Cheung's "BOEC" strategy in mind while looking for the moment of opportunity to execute the strategy.
This series of Wing Chun videos and DVD's is full of useful tips to use in any style of fighting. Any serious martial artist will appreciate the wealth of practical application of the moves demonstrated by William Cheung and his assistant in this series.
Good Wing Chun DVD

"This DVD has a lot of good stuff in it. I do think they should have put the Chi sau information befor the Bil Gi form cause they put all three forms so close together with not as many technics in between as I would have liked. Also when he is teaching some of the Chi sau technics he does not do a real good job explaining it but if you watch what he does closly you can figure it out so I am still giving the dvd 4 stars."
