Review of: IWCMAA Instructor Series: Chum Kiu Level Lesson Plans

This DVD is also on Everything Wing Chun Instant Access

Quick Review:

Sifu Chan's IWCMAA Chum Kiu Level Instructors Course focuses primarily on kicking drills and two handed Chi Sau techniques, although there are plenty of drills for improving your Wing Chun hands techniques as well. Like the Sil Lim Tao Level Instructor Series DVD, the Chum Kiu DVD is filmed on location at Sifu Chan's Kung Fu School. Geared towards the aspiring instructor, this DVD is packed with drills that can be followed in sequence or mixed together to provide a variety of classroom instruction platforms. Like any other aspect of physical training, having an experienced coach to push you is an important prerequisite to achieving your personal best. Although nothing can replace in-person training, this DVD is a great opportunity for those students training in the distance learning course to see what training is like at Chan's Kung Fu.
