    You're Walking Down a Dark Alley - Semi Sucker Punch?

    Wow. Seems so many on the forum just want to argue or try make flaws in the setup, instead of what the original post was for - a learning exercise. For the one responder, the guys suddenly stepped out into view, you didn't have time to scan the area and certainly no time to 'notice their...

    You're Walking Down a Dark Alley - Semi Sucker Punch?

    The question was posed in the light of this being a JKD sub forum. Where one is taught to intercept violence with a strike and end the fight quickly and efficiently. Just the fact the guy is throwing up his hands in a fighting stance, means the fight it on. I used Semi Sucker Punch in the...

    BL's 1 inch Punch

    Thanks for this vid. Seems he throws a LOT of waist into it; seems more punch here too, since he withdraws the punch quickly...more punch and maybe 3" of push? Didn't Bruce usually lead with his strong hand, right hand? So it was already there to throw, not a cross.

    You're Walking Down a Dark Alley - Semi Sucker Punch?

    You got off work late. It's dark outside. You always walk home but know of a shortcut down a little used dark alley. So to save time, you take the shortcut. You've walked the 70 yards and are about to come out on to the well lit sidewalk, just a minute from your home. A couple of...

    Building your ideal martial arts training grounds

    Wonder if he ever built it? The area was about 75' x 75'. Here's most of mine, I"ve built in the last couple of weeks. Wooden Man was free, built out of a wooden stool legs, the Ip Man Saloon free, built out of scrap lumber. Bridge over troubled water free, 70 lb bag got on sale for $59...

    When is a good age to teach chokes?

    If you choke them out in only say, 20 secs or less, don't they just always come back on their own? Don't know the exact number of secs, I'm sure it'd vary a bit, but 40 or more secs in a solid choke and THEN they might need assistance in coming back. Right?

    The Red Boat Opera Wing Chun

    It is like a lowly disciple hanging by his teeth in a tree over a precipice. His hands grasp no branch, his feet rest on no limb, and under the tree the high mighty grandmaster asks him, 'Why did Bodhidharma come to China from India?'

    How to Have Fast Kicks?

    Thanks all! I'll practice slow to get proper technique and will practice with 2.5 lbs slowly to just raise my knee. So Yak Sao, that 2nd vid you showed above is what you mean by chamber our kicks but just raise the knee? It's more of a step and kick? via 'step to kick and kick to step' ...

    How to Have Fast Kicks?

    Ok, makes sense. Thanks CB. Martial D needs to take a couple years off and practice his social skills as well as respect. Take a break sonny. My ignore button is getting the workout today. Don't bother trying to get in the last word...it will be like a tree falling in the forest when no...

    How to Have Fast Kicks?

    Besides perhaps ankle weights, I mean are there some things technique wise? Maybe already have 80% of weight on back foot? Angle hips a certain way? Anything like that...
