Economy of Movement

Wing Chun emphasises the use of efficient movements to achieve the most effective outcome - minimum effort for maximum result.

Using the force of the first attacker's push, Vlasta uses her entire bodyweight to deliver a powerful double palm strike to the second attacker's chest. In one motion, she then pivots her body to deliver a side slash to the first attacker's head, thereby neutralising his grab and knocking him out.

Wing Chun uses short, sharp movements to attack and defend. This allows the Wing Chun exponent to be effective, even in a cramped environment like an elevator. It also allows the Wing Chun exponent to conserve energy to engage other attackers if necessary.
