Three by Geek Wing Chun’s, Steve Grogan

BOOK 1 : The Lone Warrior

LINK: http://www.geekwingchuninc.com/TheLoneWarrior.html

DESCRIPTION: Do you have a burning desire to get better at Wing Chun, but you can’t because you can’t make it to class much? Then on the nights you DO make it, you discover class is full of beginners, so your skills don’t get pushed to the next level. Author Steve
Grogan was stuck in the same position, until he came up with the ideas that fill this tome.

The Lone Warrior will help you build a day-by-day training routine that accommodates YOUR schedule. Steve lists the activities he has picked for his own training and then shows how even a full-time working father of four can fit 30-60 minutes of training into each day, even on work days!

The activities are broken into several categories:
•Solo activities (Forms, Shadow Boxing, etc.)
•Activities that require gear (Wooden Dummy work)
•Activities that require partners (Chi Sao)
•Activities that require partners AND gear (Sparring)

Each Category section features a description of all activities. As you read these, you should notate which items sound most appealing and/or address areas where you need improvement.

***And in case you are wondering: yes, this book even gives you a solution to that one persistent, pesky question, “How do I get better at Chi Sao if no one in my life even knows how to do it?”***

Once each activity has been described, you get to the section the describes how Steve organizes each day. Yours might look completely different, and that’s okay. The whole point is to give you a blueprint to follow. It’s a catalyst to inspire you to find your own path toward Wing Chun mastery!

Designed as a companion piece to Steve Grogan’s book of the same name (available for purchase here: http://www.geekwingchuninc.com/TheLoneWarrior.html, THE LONE WARRIOR App will help you build a training routine based around your daily schedule

 

BOOK 2:  How to Build a Free-Standing Wing Chun Wooden Dummy

LINK: http://www.geekwingchuninc.com/HowtoBuildaFreestandingWingChunWoodenDummy.html

DESCRIPTION: Finally, a guide that tells you how to build a free-standing wooden dummy (AND how to weight it down) at an affordable price.

Most wooden dummies cost $1000, and they also come on big, bulky frames that won’t fit in your apartment/house. Then you look for dummies that are built WITHOUT the frame, but guess what? They cost just as much!

You search for guides on how to build your own, but it seems like every guide out there tells you how to build them only with those gigantic frames. There are none that show you how to build one that can stand on its own.

Until now.

In this book, Steve Grogan provides you with everything you need to make your own dummy:

*A list of supplies
*Ideas on how to save $$$ on the above
*Easy-to-follow instructions
*Tips on how to weigh it down, and…
*Contact information if you have any questions

Grab this guide, and you will have a free-standing wooden dummy in your house in no time!

Steve Grogan is the founder of Geek Wing Chun (http://www.geekwingchuninc.com/). He has been practicing Wing Chun since 1995, and Geek Wing Chun is his way of sharing training tips and ideas with the world.

 

BOOK 3:  How to Teach Wing Chun

LINK: http://www.geekwingchuninc.com/HowtoTeachWingChun.html

DESCRIPTION: Martial arts schools are not like colleges. It’s not like everyone starts and finishes on the same date, and everyone is expected to know the same material by the end of the year. People start at different times, and they have different learning curves. They will not all advance at the same rate, even if they DO all start on the same day.

So how do we teach martial arts? Do we go into each class with no idea or lesson plan, just teaching willy nilly and hope that our students become good at our given style? No. We still need an underlying structure, a curriculum that provides an outline yet is still flexible to be changed if the need arises.

Steve Grogan has been studying Wing Chun since 1995 and teaching it since 2017. Over the last few years, he has analyzed and condensed his approach to teaching in a way that hits up areas where most students struggle. He knows that new students need more than just theory and forms; they need proof that what they are practicing will actually work if they ever have to defend themselves.

This book shows new Wing Chun instructors how they can organize what might initially seem like a formless monster into a clear and concise curriculum. Odds are that even OLD Wing Chun instructors might find something enlightening in its pages.
