5.0 out of 5 stars Really good beginners dvd, September 2006 12 Sep 2006
By Matt B
Format:DVD
I was really impressed by this DVD and I think it is better than the beginners one by Alan Gibson. I felt I didnt really learn much from Gibson's dvd, although it does explain the basics of why wing chun works. I thought Sifu Goh's dvd was better planned and put together, and easy to understand. Also, I liked the use of mirrors to show different views.

The format of the DVD is such that you can watch it and pracice the things you learn in your own house without needing a partner, which will help to progress when combined with going to a class. The DVD by Sifu Goh starts with basic warming up and conditioning. Then moves into thoroughly explaining the first form, Siu Lim Tao which is the essential basics of wing chun, breaking the form down into sections and explaining the applications. The DVD then does the same with Sifu Goh's arrow form before finishing with some demonstrations and advice on sparring.

In short an excellent dvd,I really recommend it and intend to buy Sifu Goh's intermediate and advanced wing chun dvds when I get through this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Wing Chun DVD 26 Nov 2010
By Mavrik
Format:DVD
Austin Goh taught my Dad Wing Chun when I was a baby so he obviously has years and years of experience (I'm nearly 30) and this can be seen in the skill and accuracy he shows when demonstrating the Wing Chun forms in this DVD. I imagine that for someone who knew nothing about Wing Chun at all this would be a good place to start. For me it's ideal because I started doing classes but had to stop when I became a dad in order to save money and spend time with my baby. This DVD is helpful in continuing my training alone until I'm able to resume classes. It's also got me using weights as part of my training routine and I seem to have toned and built muscle on my arms like never before in the past few weeks so I think it must be the combination of weights and Wing Chun.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works! (against 3 year olds) 25 Jun 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I got this because I fancied doing some exercise at home during the cold, dark winter evenings. I thought this would be different enough to keep me interested. I like it. Once I'd got the basics down I just watch the warm up/practise routines for me to exercise to.

I don't belong to a club and I haven't gone all vigilante on the world (yet) so I don't know how kick-ass effective it is. BUT it has saved my balls from the relentless punching my kids deliver on a number of occasions, by using the kick-block move to sweep their evil little fists from thumping my plums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent beginners dvd 7 Jun 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I bought a dvd on self defense thinking that it would show me the basics of wing chun - it didnt. It did show me methods of defense employable in a street fight situation, which is perfect if thats what your after.
So i searched around for a product that would be a starting point(knowing a few moves already :)) I scoured the net for reviews on a product similar to the aforementioned to no avail.
I found Austin Goh's wing chun dvd and put money on it that maybe it would be useful. I wasn't disappointed. This contains moves,drills and the first form (sil lim tao) broken down into learnable chunks and also contains a mirror section to reduce confusion. Very good at showing the basics; things that can be ingrained and practiced at home.
Nice one Sifu Goh.
Now theres something for others to read....
p.s. Buy yourself a brother to practice with if possible LOL

5.0 out of 5 stars Great exercise tool 7 Aug 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've not done any martial arts since I was quite young and I wanted to try out the wing chun style at home before venturing out to classes. I thought the basics of the style was clearly presented and very easy to follow, even though I found some of the excercises a bit demanding at times. That was probably due mainly to my lack of fitness at the moment. I've been using it for a few weeks now and i'm really enjoying it. I would recommend this dvd to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars 3 Jan 2008
Format:DVD
If you are looking for a beginners introduction to wing chun then this DVD does what it says on the packaging. I found it very easy to understand, excellent image quality, breaks down the information into easily manageable parts and is great to train along to. I give it a five star rating because the instruction comes from a quality source and clearly states at the beginning that it is only intended as extra training, not the sole source of training.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wing Chun training aid 22 May 2010
Format:DVD
This Wing Chun For Beginners [2002] [DVD] is fantastic. My partner needed something to remind him of moves he has learnt in class. It is very precise and clear and helped him a lot. Will definately be ordering the next two dvd's Austin Goh - Wing Chun For Intermediate [DVD] and Austin Goh - Wing Chun Advanced [DVD]

4.0 out of 5 stars Good beginners guide, but nothing special
A little short perhaps, but a good basic guide and the DVD was very cheap, so if you are learning Wing Chun this will definitely help.
