    Moving And Switching Schools

    Even if you find a school that teaches you what you want, but the program can be very different. You really have to look at the class how they train. I think you should worry less about what style the school teaches, more on how they train even if they are of different style. You might learn...

    Olympic Combat Sports

    What?!! Kickboxing, Muay Thai too violent for them?? I don't follow Olympics, I saw a Tai Kwon Do match one time, they only kick, no punches. I know TKD, we do more than that. Is there some rules against punching?

    You think I care what you say? Why don't you STOP responding to my post, you will just make this thread locked and deprive others from talking like the two other threads that you ruined.

    Do they have actual fighting or just forms? It's boring to look at forms. In my book, MA is an art of kicking butts, want grace and look pretty, go do ballet.

    What is circle punch?

    Ha ha, I am not crazy to punch a metal pole like this guy!!! I don't think I punch quite as hard, the wood pole do bounce and give a little. Also I don't punch that many times. only 10 times each hand. My hands look fine. You can see the spot I circled is the part the skin scraped off from...

    What is circle punch?

    I think the skull is a lot harder than the heavy bag. Haha, I even tried knocking on my own head to proof!!! Believe me, I used the stuffings from the old kicking bags that I broke from punching to stuff at least the top part of the bag to make it harder, still, it's not like the skull. I make...

    What is circle punch?

    If it is just for toughening the hand, once a week 5 minutes is plenty, or twice and 2 minutes. I do a lot of hand conditioning by punching the 6X6 wood pole for years and I am still doing it every week now. I practice once a week, 10 punches on the big two knuckles each hand, 10 on the last two...

    What is circle punch?

    What you described about relaxed strikes, using body from waist to shoulder to drop down are the basic stuffs same as punching. These are things you learn at the beginning. After that, there is NO mystery about Iron palm. It's is not as if there are some magic about Iron palm. That's the reason...

    What is circle punch?

    I finally have a chance to try out circle punch. I actually saw it in slow motion a fighter throwing a circle punch with thumbs almost pointing downward like the video I posted in post #1. So I guess there are more than one way of circle punch. I tried that, I don't like it, I felt my elbow is...

    Video that a student applies skill on his teacher

    Notice most of the demo is with the same short hair guy? The guy must be well trained how to fall and flying across the room in the demo. Still not very good acting though. You type in " Fake Kung Fu master" in youtube, a few video of this guy will come up and you can enjoy and laugh watching...
