    My Name is Sonja Li but I go by Skye . I've been a student of Wing Chun kung fu for the past 2 1/2 years. I don't follow the strict traditional form but I very much practice everything I do using it's fundamental principals. My current teacher has been teaching me both traditional as well as some mix of other disciplines while applying wing chun techniques. This makes for an interesting lesson but this method of learning has kept me open minded to learning different things.

    My other interests include physical fitness such as body weight workouts as well as isometrics and calisthenics. But most of my workouts are almost always geared towards improving my MA.

    I'm happy I found this community and hope to make some friends along the way!

    How to integrate weight training with MA training is always my personal goal. The issue is 90% of the weight training may not integrate with MA training very well.

    The belt cracking drill may help you to achieve your goal - improve MA, isometrics, physical fitness, ...

    - You can move your body the same way as you move in your solo MA form (or drill).
    - At the same time, you can crack on a Karate belt to develop your fingers strength, arm strength.

    You can bring your Karate belt anywhere you want to. It's easy to carry. It can give you more than just doing your solo form (or drill).
