Benny Meng – Wing Chun 8 Slashing Sword
Wing Chun 8 Slashing Sword (Pat Cham To) This is the twelfth in a series of videos presented by the Ving Tsun Museum on the Yip Man system. The Wing Chun system, also spelled Ving Tsun, is famous for containing three empty hand forms (Siu Nim Tau, Chum Kiu, and Biu Ji), two weapon forms (Luk Dim Bun Kwan and Baat Jaam Dou), and a special training apparatus known as the Wooden Dummy (or Muk Yan Jong). In the Yip Man lineage, very few students or instructors learned the Baat Jam Dou or Eight Slashing Knives directly from the late Grand Master.
This represents the end of the system, and is the first time Grand Master Benny Meng has taught the knives to martial artists outside his direct school. This DVD exposes the secrets of Wing Chun knife tactics and real application for the first time to the public. The information is presented in several formats throughout the video – solo with and without weapons, partner demonstration, and application – giving you a chance to see the simplicity, directness, and efficiency of this Wing Chun lineage. (approx. 60 minutes) Instruction is led by Grand Master Benny Meng, Curator of the Ving Tsun Museum, supported by his student, Master Brad Ryan of Houston, Texas.
