    I don't know of any boxers that stay off their lead leg when they throw coming forward. Not saying they don't exist, but I can't think of an example.

    Here are some more San Sik set to video lesson for you all!

    This first one is a very important and "deep" set from Ku Lo Wing Chun. It is one of the primary San Sik at level 3.




    This one is related to the previous set and is the origin of "Cup Da Sau" from a prior lesson.



    I consider this one a "minor" set from level 3 and don't use it much. But is something not found in Ip Man Wing Chun and therefore not seen very often!

    @KPM what do you think of using a style similar to George Foreman? Pawing extended arms at the front door. Swallowing, controlling, then smashing attacks in within that control. Of course, strength like Foreman would help haha. But could structure be used to replace that strength in WC Boxing? I know you've been working with a boxing engine, but was curious of your thoughts

    I like your training tool. It's good to be used to train "stay in the same door", or "switch between doors". Did you design that yourself?

    I also like your "single switching hand" training. I used to like the linear approach. But I like the circular approach better. IMO, the circular approach (used to stay in the same door) is faster than the linear approach (used to switch between doors).

    No matter how fast that you can do with your linear approach, you have to strike out and then pull it back. But if you use the circular approach, it can be as simple as 3 small circles that flow out smoothly one after another.

    I find just before the lead foot lands maximizes my transfer. Also a rotation in air off that lead ball with my hip extending toward the opponent.

    Foreman, like Archie Moore before him, made heavy use of the "cross arm defense"....holding his forearms up in front like a double Lan Sau as a shield. Then sucking opponents in close like you noted. I do think this can work in WC Boxing with more structure than strength. Against a stronger opponent, you can actually use the Lan Sau not only to create space, but to "bounce away" from the opponent if you are getting overwhelmed. And the cross arm block flows easily into Skull & Crossbones or the Philly Shell. It is definitely a viable structure to work from in close.

    Foreman used that pawing to push his opponent away and / or to create space. He did that against Frazier.

    Yep lots don’t give Foreman credit but he had skill not just a brawler. This guy breaks down Frazier Foreman well...
