Human Anatomy used in EBMAS Wing Tzun

Emin Boztepe Martial Arts System teaches it students there are four main ways an EBMAS Wing Tzun fighter uses the human anatomy.


Wing Tzun fighter uses his muscles to create energy this is the 4th dimension time. The structures of the muscles in the Human body are grouped together so that they are strongest and work to their maximum efficiency going forward. The muscles are at their least efficient or weakest going backwards or to the sides.

Vital Organs

  • Psychology (Fear)

Analising the Human Anatomy we know our vital organs are contained within the trunk. We want to protect the trunk because an attack here can cause blackout or death.

  • Strategy

A plan of action to obtain an advantage over an opponent based on gathered information.

Knowing that Humans are all built using the same structure we now know where to attack our opponent(s) to cause the maximum damage.With the knowledge of the how our muscles are designed to work together being at their most efficient going forward with power, attacking an opponent from the flank or from behind, the Wing Tzun fighter will have the strongest line of attack leaving the opponent at their most vulnerable.


  • Geometry

The Skeleton in the human body is used to make geometric measurements visible (Width, Depth and Height).

  • Tactics

Manoeuvres to achieve objectives set by strategy.

When an opponent attacks, the Wing Tzun fighter using his muscles pushes both the Man-sao and Wu-sao forward toward the opponent's noise (Time and Space). Now the impact of the attack is far out in front on the Man-sao. This dynamic pressure on the man-sao compresses the arm and depending on the direction of the attack deforms the arm into a Wing Tzun technique (Laws of Leverage).

Once the attack has compressed the arm of the Wing Tzun fighter allows the on coming attack to continue coming forward which mechanically turns the Wing Tzun fighter to a 45° angle. Now the Wing Tzun fighter can attack the opponent from the flank.


There are 5 senses in the human body that can alert us from danger.

  • Sight

Before confrontation starts the human body will use the eyes to evaluate the situation, this could be someone moving aggressively towards the Wing Tzun fighter.

  • Sound

The Wing Tzun fighter can use the sense of sound to alert him of imminent danger, like the sound of a commotion or a bottle being broken behind him.

  • Touch

To react to an attack one must recognise it. Most styles of martial arts entrust this task to our eyes. A Wing Tzun fighter also gathers such information through physical contact (The Bodies Nervous System).

  • Smell

The sense of smell can alert the Wing Tzun fighter to various dangers, such as gas leaks, smoke etc...

  • Taste

The sense of taste can detect various dangers such as uncooked or expired food products.
