“Child: The nearest analogy I can give is baseball batters. There’s absolutely no consensus whatsoever about batting stance or swing or style—everybody does it themselves. Take any batter you like; imagine saying, “Okay, you can’t swing like that; you’ve got to swing like these other guys.” It just ruins them completely. They would just never get anywhere.
TNI: They’d become so self-conscious.
Child: Absolutely. Baseball is highly coached and highly ritualistic; and yet there’s no attempt whatsoever to standardize your swing, because it’s just got to be what works for you. It’s the same thing with writing. You’ve just got to do it your own way.”
Lee Child, creator of Jack Reacher series, in an interview
Wing Chun is like this too.
You need to learn the system (when you get there, its like a Karate Black Belt, which means you’re just getting going) and then you need to find what works best for you. You find this through lots of Chi Sau/Gwoh Sau.
You try this and try that and note when you succeed. Don’t worry about doing the same thing over and over in training. That’s the essence of training. Find what works and then hone it. Do it faster, cleaner, with more structure. Make it “automatic.”
