Wing Chun Double Punch

This page provides details on the Wing Chun Double Punch. This punching technique is used to throw two punches together. However, it differs from a traditional double fist punch because fists in the Wing Chun double punch land on the target one after the other (versus together in the double fist punch). This technique is used to improve a martial artist's punching speed.

According to Sifu Och Wing Chun, "Most styles popular styles, Karate, Boxing, Tae Kwon Do, Muai Thai, alternate their punches typically from left to right to create combinations. For instance in boxing: Jab, Cross, Hook, Upper Cut, is a very basic combination taught from the beginning. From there, further combinations can be created. To do this, a practitioner must turn his body away to complete the strike. The body is then rotated back into the strike from the opposite shoulder to allow the other hand to strike. While of course, not every combo alternates at every strike, that is the bulk of the attacks". Wing Chun practitioners believe that this slows down the punches as a martial artist rotates his body.

In contrast, "One of the main differences with Wing Chun, is that while in some instances also alternating between the left and right hand, it does not twist the body. Wing Chun keeps both hips forward allowing both hands to stay in range". With the Wing Chun double punch, "Both fists travel out together until contact. Once the first fist has made contact it is lowered and immediately followed by the second fist. Since the entire body is thrown into the strike both hits have the full force of the body". Wing Chun practitioners believe this type of punch allows for quicker strikes versus traditional punching combinations.
