Wing Chun Concept: Centerline

Concept: Centerline Theory

The centerline is sacred to the Wing Chun warrior. In an assault, it becomes your sole focus of attention to both attack and defend the centerline. Everything you practice in the Forms and Drills relates back to the centerline.

As a whole, Centerline Theory is both elegantly simple and fascinatingly complex. As a beginning student, you will learn about the most basic concepts. As you advance into the Chum Kiu form and begin to move with structure, you will learn intermediate concepts such as Facing and Cutting Angles. As you move into the Biu Jee level and beyond, the advanced concepts of Centerline Theory will come into play.

To put it simply, Centerline Theory is something you will revisit many times during your study of Wing Chun. With every new exploration, you'll find that the Theory just gets deeper and deeper.
