fundamental to both the “external” aspect and exercises of the Xiong Jiang
Wing Chun Kung Fu and the “internal” aspects of the Qi Gong.

strengthen and stretch the body in preparation for the harder and more
strenuous training that follows.

of Kung Fu training equipment is next, Punches, elbow strikes, knee strikes,
kicks and other moves are practiced for the remainder of the warm ups.
