Take Downs in Wing Chun

Yesterday in class I focused on section 7 of the Wing Chun Dummy Form which covers the take down!

In Wing Chun, I think take downs are very effective but they’re not practiced as much as other drills.

I don’t have much experience with take downs so my knowledge is very limited but the most important thing to remember is that you need to cause a push and pull reaction from your opponent.

I had a lot of fun practicing the take downs but wished that we dedicated more class time to practicing it with everyone in the class.

What do you guys think about make take downs a more integral part of Wing Chun training? Let me know in the comments!
