Comments from students who attended the Seminar
It is always great to see Tai-Sigong (Mike Baker) come to Beccles to
hold a seminar, and as usual he didn't disappoint. I gained insight into
the clearness of how Sui Lim Tao (first form) should be performed, and a
superb explanation and demonstration of Fa Ging (releasing power) in the
second section of Sui Lim Tao. I also gained some knowledge with
applications, and will definitely pass this onto my own students.
Not only did we Chi Sau, but Tai-Sigong answered many questions relating
to Wing Chun and also Qigong which helped immensely and clarified
I thoroughly enjoyed the seminar, and would to thank Tai-Sigong for
taking the time to come to Beccles, and also would like to thank my Sifu
(Natasha Etheridge) for arranging it all.
I look forward to the next visit.
James: ‘I had a great time. I learnt so much from attending
this seminar, and would like to thank my Tai-Sigong Mike Baker for the
very subtle corrections that have now improved my Chi Sau’.
Nick: ‘I thoroughly enjoyed this seminar and for me the mixture
of Qigong and Wing Chun was quite enlightening; a buffet of knowledge’
Robin: ‘The seminar was informative and clear, Tai-Sigong Mike
Baker was an inspiration for my learning of Wing Chun and gave me some
very invaluable advice. I would like to thank my Sifu Eric Paule for his
continued support of my learning and also thanks to my Sigong for
putting on this seminar’
“From the point of view of a new student who knows little about wing chun, I throughly enjoyed the evening wishing it could have lasted a little longer. I know now just how much there is to learn and how good, informative and precise the instruction was. I'm totally fascinated and hooked! Many thanks Ross
Really good to have Sifu back in Beccles. He explained having the weight
on your heels when doing Balancing Gong really changed the energy
and and brought new insights to practicing this form.
You always come away with new understandings
from attending seminars to improve your own practice.
