The manual is a brief and simple guide to Earle's Academy lineage, history, protocol and training methods. The first edition was published about 1999, and the drills section has remained unchanged ... the drills included are by no means the only ways that the various moves of the forms may be used ... n fact I believe that an exhaustive list would simply stifle individual creativity. I would prefer that you use your imagination.
The notes and the training routines are not cast in stone, but are simply provided as a guide, since as Instructors we may occasionally have a mental block; like a “what shall we work on now?" block; so you may find them a useful prompt. You may also find them useful as a guide to developing your own training program.
As to the use of the word "technique", since Wing Chun is not a technique based system then one could very well ask “What is the purpose of teaching these techniques?” The answer is quite simple. Most students begin their training because they want to learn some self-defence, or develop skill in fighting. So the techniques combine various arm maneuvers from the forms, forming them into complex movements that help develop coordination and unity of body movement in simultaneous attack & defence, in a semi-realistic scenario.
