This is the second part of the 25 minute video I made with the samples of some of the exercises that do for warm ups. I went slow so that you can see what's going on and then I went fast. These may not see important but if you have seen any of my sparring videos then you would have seen similar foot movement used in takedowns and takedown defenses. I won't go into a lot details on exactly how the exercises help. But below I touch on each clip. The 1st clip shows what I call Cross Overs. You may know it by other names. The goal here is to keep your feet tight as possible without tripping over each other. Jow Ga Kung Fu is known for it's short shuffles and close footwork. How close? Well it's often compared to the footwork of a rat. This movement comes from Choy ga which is not the same as Jow Ga. 2 different families. The 2nd clip are called side hops. I got slack on these. The feet shouldn't come together at all and shouldn't be as close as what you see here. The 3rd clips show side hops changing directions. You can see here that my side hops are not as close as the second clip. Side hops are "magical" because there really is no forward or backwards. It's all relative to the direction my head is facing. The 4th clip shows side shuffle in horse. The 5th clip shows side shuffle in horse with staff foot work. Like always feel free to ask question make recommendations. Why are short steps important in Jow Ga? The longer it takes for your foot to plant on the ground the slower you are and the easier it is to sweep you. The shorter it takes for your foot to plant on the quicker you'll be and the sooner you'll have your root making more difficult for someone to sweep you. This is Choy Ga. You can see how close the footwork is.
