THE MARTIAL MAN
Published on Apr 7, 2018

The third episode of the MARTIAL DIARIES. This episode follows my journey to the North West of England to meet with Grandmaster Samuel Kwok. Master Kwok generously shared many valuable insights into Ip Man Wing Chun. A full in-depth interview will be released on a separate video in the near future, and a members video showing unseen footage is now available to watch directly through my website:

That hammer fist at the end is very interesting. Is it a common technique in the standard Wing Chun syllabus? Or particular to this teacher?

Windy City Wing Chun Gung Fu, Inc (Ip Man lineage thru Augustine Fong) on January 14, 2013 wrote:There are 8 punches in Wing Chun, all of which can be found within the 3 hand forms.

1) Regular
2) upper cut
3) low punch
4) inside whip
5) outside whip
6) Inside diagonal
7) outside diagonal
8) hammer

Windy City Wing Chun Gung Fu, Inc hammer punch is from the Chum Kiu form.

Augustine Fong wrote:Hammer fist "chour kuen" makes contact with the bottom side of the fist. In order to structurally support the fist, the thumb must be placed on top of the index finger rather than on the side. This fist may be applied in any angle needed, high or low. Any type of chopping motion may be replaced with the hammer fist.

"Like a hammer fist"
"Very similar"

So it's not a regular hammer? How does the regular hammer fist in WC looks like?

Anyway, it's good fist he shows. You can see how he holds out his arms almost straight out. His position looks similar to Wu/Hao and Sun single whip. We have the same punch he shows in the Sun Tai Chi form and it comes straight from the single whip posture. In the form the fist strikes low, but it can be done against a face as well. Martial Man said it felt very strong. We explain the strength by the extreme "open" posture where the chest really opens up. In application, you withdraw and gather strength while parry a high punch and then just "release" while using the waist. My top favourite Tai Chi fist strike, a very good and powerful one.

From Close Range Combat Wing Chun by Randy Williams:
Randy Williams wrote:3) Hammer Punch—Chuo Kuen: This punch has its origin in the
Double Jom Sau motion of the Siu Leem Tau form. The striking surface is
the bottom of the fist. The thumb is held on top of the fist pressing on the
index finger to brace the fingers during the punch. Hammer Punches can
be substituted for horizontal inward and outward chops, as well as any
upward or downward chopping attack.
