WT withdrawal

I'm sure you've been there. The sweats, the shakes, the itchy arms... what am I referring to you ask? Withdrawal from Wingtsun of course, what else?!

Whether or not there are busier days at work, family-time becomes a priority, or you've simply fallen ill, there always comes a time when you need to take a break from training. Then what becomes of us? Well, for me, I have a WT addiction to feed. So, it only takes a matter of days before I start getting the shakes.

Try as I might with form-training, resistance training, shadow Wingtsun-ning, etc.... it just doesn't fullfill that feeling of training with a partner. Oh, the aforementioned training is all good and useful of course, but few things surmount the sensation of "crossing hands" in WT.

What to do then? Well, persevere for one thing. And lots of patience.

Do you have an addiction? What is it's root - a need or a want?
