Another piece by Sifu Shaun Rawcliffe for Wing Chun Illustrated.
“I found that, whilst going through the movements of Siu Nim Tao, by slowly inhaling through the nose, drawing oxygen into the lungs, whilst pressing down with the diaphragm, and then exhaling through the mouth using the diaphragm, breathing deep, relaxed, and at a natural rate, regardless of the work or movement, this helped control the body’s metabolic and biorhythmic rate. This meant I stayed calm and relaxed, yet alert, and when required to act fast and decisively, I could control the adrenaline rush and make it work for me, rather than against me.”
