4 Wing Tzun Fighting Principles


The 4 Wing Tzun Fighting Principles as taught by EBMAS (Emin Boztepe Martial Arts System)

The way is free go forward and strike!


The first of the 4 Wing Tzun Principles in Emin Boztepe Martial Arts System Wing Tzun is the way is free go forward. EBMAS students train as soon as the attacker moves close enough to potentially strike, we immediately advance into them with our own attacks, putting him on defence, while keeping our vital targets protected. The goal is to strike and disable the attacker as quickly as possible or, failing that, to establish arm and leg contact with him so that we may react by fast tactile sensitivity, rather than slow visual.

Stick with what comes


The second of the 4 Wing Tzun Principles in Emin Boztepe Martial Arts System Wing Tzun is Stick with what comes. EBMAS students learn if the attacker should succeed in blocking or otherwise impeding the advance of our arms and/or leg, we do not withdraw our limbs, but maintain forward pressure. We do not allow the attacker space to renew his attack.

Give way to a greater strength


The third of the 4 Wing Tzun Principles in Emin Boztepe Martial Arts System Wing Tzun is Give way to the Greater Strength. Should the attacker succeed in blocking or otherwise impeding the advance of our arms and/or leg, EBMAS student learn not withdraw our limbs, but maintain forward pressure. We do not allow the attacker space to renew his attack.

Follow through and fill the Gaps!


Using the last of the 4 Wing Tzun Principles Follow through and fill the gaps, as a consequence of our constant forward pressure coupled with soft relaxation, our limbs automatically flow like water into the gaps in our opponent's defence, subjecting them to constant, overwhelming attacks.

If you engage your attacker and then disengage and step back to strike again, you are also giving the attacker a second chance!

That is very inefficient!

In Emin Boztepe Martial Arts System we teach our Wing Tzun students to continue engagement and take the fight to the attacker at close range where he will be forced to go on the defensive against the lightning fast linear strikes of EBMAS Wing Tzun.

You learn to NEVER give your attacker a chance to regroup and mount an effective counter against you.
