The inner arts teach unconditional goodness and cultivate tried and tested norms and traditional values in dealing with people. This also applies to the martial arts and the inner struggle for their own perfection that they have implemented.
The philosophy of the EXPLOSIVEN-WING-CHUN pursues the goal of promoting this kung fu line according to the tradition of Dr. Leung Jan, in order to preserve and re-examine knowledge and skills with his profound philosophy.
By transferring and applying the training methods and wisdom to everyday life, EXPLOSIVES-WING-CHUN not only gives you the ability to successfully pass a physical encounter, but also serves in particular to achieve extensive physical, mental and spiritual security in all situations.
This makes the EXPLOSIVES-WING-CHUN system a way of life – a philosophy of life whose enthusiasm and fascination are difficult to escape!
It can also be explained why it is not only women and children and adults interested in martial arts who are health-oriented, from 4 to 70 years old, who come from Munich, but even interested people from all over Germany.
In times of commercialization, which unfortunately has also found its way into the martial arts in our western world, whereby tradition and ethical philosophy are more and more lost, our school tries to counteract this and to make the original spirit of Chinese martial art accessible to everyone ,
The commercial aspect therefore takes a back seat.
The school pays attention to a harmonious, healthy growth, so that a “large family” kung fu atmosphere can be lived.
Let yourself be inspired by this great old teaching and art of living and learn a holistic EXPLOSIVES-WING-CHUN system that is hardly known to the western world…
The profound and true knowledge of the WING-CHUN was and is highly respected in China and is treated with great respect. The real knowledge of the system was only transmitted from generation to generation, often only to a selected and secret circle. It is therefore understandable that certain student norms of behavior must be the principle of instruction:
- The WING-CHUN master prefers the traditional way of passing on his art. For personal progress, it is helpful to adjust to the fact that the didactic teaching method can deviate from the familiar western view of knowledge transfer.
- Questions and serious comments should be asked first at the end of the lesson or upon request. Interrupting him during class is considered extremely impolite and a sign of lack of respect for Master.
- Questions and discussions among students during class must also be avoided to ensure attention and minimize the risk of injury.
- Correct behavior begins with the right manners, including the salutation of the master and his teachers. Addressing a master by his name is considered extremely rude, even disrespectful, according to traditional rules. Therefore, he must be contacted with MEISTER or SIFU, his teachers with SIHING.
- As a sign of respect for the master and the tradition that he respects, he is greeted by a classic gesture. This is usual when entering and leaving the classroom, at the beginning and at the end of the class, and after each correction.
The school regulations regulate the behavior of all students of the Shaolin school, inside and outside the classroom. It serves as an aid for the individual and for the community in order to guarantee mutual respect and humanity.
Your rules apply to all students and are recognized by all students and teachers!
- Every student has to show up for class on time. If, in exceptional cases, a delay was unavoidable, you must apologize to the master before entering the classroom.
- Always be helpful to your classmates and treat respectably higher graduates. Never criticize other martial arts and their teachers.
- Always practice only what was shown to you and is part of your teaching program. After the corresponding preparation time and after approval by the master, you will take an exam. Only then will you be instructed in new teaching programs.
- Exercise only in proper clothing (kung fu suit) with the appropriate graduation badge.
- During class, behave in such a way that a risk of injury to yourself and others can be excluded. The wearing of chains, bracelets, rings or other jewelry is strictly prohibited. Training under the influence of alcohol and drugs is FORBIDDEN!
- If you are not a Shaolin school teacher, you are prohibited from initiating (non-) members into Shaolin school techniques. Also note that you can only use the techniques taught in a self-defense situation!
- Everyone always pays attention to order and cleanliness in all rooms of the Shaolin School.
- In the event of a culpable violation by the member of the school regulations and / or the training regulations, disciplinary measures (up to 4 weeks house ban, etc.) can be imposed.
The Shaolin School represents the venerable and respectful traditions of the old Shaolin masters.
We do not behave like in a western sports club, but follow the rules and traditions of the old masters.
Accordingly, stick to these principles, even if they may seem unusual at first.
Martial arts or martial arts
Martial art, as the name suggests, is an art and not primarily a sporting exercise, as it is understood in the West as an expression of physical culture. However, there is currently no authentic martial art in this sense.
The traditional forms have been around for a long time and will continue to be changed or handed down incorrectly. Old, tried and tested principles are “reinterpreted” and are often watered down and devalued. This imperceptibly creates a new assessment of the importance of martial arts, which is determined by the desire to impress and supposedly increase one’s own prestige through success in questionable competitions. Such contentless guiding principles are not compatible with the principles of internal martial arts.
In addition to mastering the body, the mind must also be trained and disciplined in order not only to control the opponent, but first and foremost to achieve a victory over himself and thereby develop his personality.
Seen in this way, the concept of internal art implies a deep empathy for teaching, a broad spectrum of knowledge, but also character training, ethical awareness and familiarity with fundamental values and norms. Therefore, the question must be asked how systems can be judged from this aspect that unconditionally require their supporters to be aggressive in combat.
The reputation of martial arts, but especially martial arts, is increasingly affected, because today most styles are degenerate to mere physical activity. It is therefore not surprising that almost no one can practice this sport into old age without being affected by injuries or permanent damage. On the other hand, masters of internal martial arts will become more and more powerful in the course of their lives, without these unpleasant side effects.
