Pressure Insole intro

This prototype is mainly used to indicate the distribution and and value alteration of foot pressure, which is used to analyze some basic principles of WingChun training. The prototype is surrounded by LED strip which could indicate three different status. Putting different pressure  trigger different color in different part of your feet. The default is off with zero pressure and LED turns green When put light pressure on the insole; Medium strength is blue and the strongest strength is shown in red. In WingChun daily training system, there are some basic principles. First of all, the important basic concept  is… More

samrt insole

In my cooperative tribe – WingChun Tribe. Students have some basic decomposition of movement practice at every day training  which is very important to enhance the understanding of the WingChun and grasp the basic principles. But for beginners, they may have some trouble  with the deeper understanding of these principles. I designed this pressure indicator — a smart insole, which in order to strengthen the students’ cognition of these movements ,using very intuitive pressure analysis and light indicators to help students and deepen their understanding. This is, of course, just an early prototype. The portability and directive directness can also… More

First Prototype

To be honest, most of  new students lack of fully understanding of footwork in WingChun training, because We mostly focus on the upper limb and thing about how to use fist,  palm,elbow to organize attack and defense . But in general daily session we constantly practice one movement which allow us lower our body and place full weight on the rear foot and keep  the forward  foot light touch floor or suspend in the midair. Follow this teaching procedure, I thought my first prototype like a kind of pressure  sensor mat. and then consider more easy to carry I got my idea to build… More

Movement of the center of gravity

I always been told how important of keeping balance of body during my WingChun training  session, so I started to understand the  basic theory of Stability and the centre of gravity.   The direction of the force of gravity through the body is downward, towards the centre of the earth and through the COG. This line of gravity is important to understand and visualise when determining a person’s ability to successfully maintain Balance. When the line of gravity falls outside the Base of support (BOS), then a reaction is needed in order to stay… More

Social thing Presentation

A presentation about research direction of social thing subject I am going to focus on the analysis of the position and center of gravity . Finding a way on the measurement of center of gravity to help for new students  … More
