What Happens When You CAN’T Move to the Outside Gate!?

Best Way To Defend Against Wild Swinging Punches - London Wing Chun Academy
Quite often in Wing Chun we move to the Outside Gate, but sometimes you simply can’t. In a fight, you must know how to defend yourself against a barrage of wild combination punches.

In this video we discuss how to move as efficiently as possible, to get INSIDE the arms.

The key to surviving a barrage of heavy swinging punches when you can’t get to the outside, is simply to get INSIDE THE ARC of the punches.

From here you can control the guy’s arms, start to break his balance and attack back.
