Central Line is a line connects your Axis Line to your opponents Axis Line. This line represents the shortest and quickest route of an attack. The Wing Chun practitioner learns to defend this line at every opportunity. Primary goal of the Wing Chun practitioner is to keep this line in the Central Line Area to avoid being blind-sided. Linear punches or front kicks are the best examples of attacks down this line. Contrary to the Center and Reciprocal lines, there is no support for this line. The Central Line cannot absorb the full force of the opponents energy. The Wing Chun practitioner would have to deflect the energy on this line. This line would be considered a deflection line instead of a supported line of defense.
