Pole Form


What is Luk Dim Boon Kwan?



Luk Dim Boon Kwan translates as the 6 1/2 point pole.  It is also known as the Dragon Pole and is the only long range form within the system.  When compared to the other forms it is a relativity short set with only six and a half techniques in total.  


It teaches the practitioner the importance of occupying and controlling the centre line. It also enhances the ability to control and direct one's energy and how to execute it with precision using a spiralling force.  


There are many benefits to be gained from practising the pole form these include:




  • Increased arm and leg strength 

  • Core strength and control

  • Learning to centre line from the shoulder

  • Build and release of energy

  • Deeper understanding of the Wing Chun Principles

  • Activation of spiralling force

  • Mindfulness and a disciplined focus

  • Precision attacks



When first learning the form it can almost feel like a cumbersome weapon until the student has mastered its finer points of precision along with their own disciplined application.  It is a welcome challenge to the body mechanics in terms of the accuracy and control that is needed to perform the form correctly.
