I've been practicing wing tsun for more than 3 years now but I still have fear when an opponent is phisically strong. Sometimes we wear helmets and gloves and train in pairs. One simulates the attacker and the other one is doing self defense.
When I practice this with other students I have no problems even if the opponent is stronger. But when I try to defend myself against the attacks of the instructor I have some fear so I don't jump in and let him come too close to me so I get hit.
Has anyone of you ever had problems with fear and overcomed that with time? Does anyone know the best way to fight the fear?
