    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...

    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...

    What are the Best, Quick Fight Stoppers?

    I think I know Bruce liked the finger jab/thrust into the eyes. Bil Gee? He supposedly tried this against Jack Man Wong. Maybe a forward foot front snap kick into the stomach or jewels? Anything else?

    Heavy bag drills.

    HIIT (high intensity interval training like everyone's talking about) is super for burning fat...but know that for losing fat, it's 80% diet and 20% exercise. Check out the Keto diet. Fairly easy to do and you'll drop fat pretty fast, without sacrificing muscle, and keep it off. Keto Diet is...

    Thanks for sharing this Xue Sheng. Mei li ! For me, the Great Wall was 100 times more wonderful than the Grand Canyon! I felt like I was in a dream just standing on the Wall . I just took off running to enjoy it. The people in the market below were great too, selling their wares. One old...

    The director thought Simon was too talented, too good looking, too much accent, too serious, too cocky, too aggressive, too much the lady's man and too authentic...so he chose the meek and homely looking, no experience, cheaper actor. Bloody Apples! ;-) I reckon everyone, not matter what...

    The Red Boat Opera Wing Chun

    Would Would Win between Ip Man and Bruce?

    Nobody's surmised a guess to the original question...so here's mine. Bruce Lee would win. He had that killer instinct and more experience IN actually street fights. Ip Man perhaps had much compassion and kindness, which of course is a good thing and true to the Wing Chun way, so it would have...

    Would Would Win between Ip Man and Bruce?

    Course they'd never fight, but if they did, in a no holds barred, anything goes, street fight, who do you think would win in a fight between Ip Man and Bruce Lee, both in their prime, say Bruce at age 28 and Ip Man at whatever his prime was? Bruce was 5'7" at 135 lbs and say Ip Man was 5'3"...

    Course you've probably seen The Grandmaster. The Seven Samurai is a good classic, but English subtitles. This one was what Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen's The Magnificent Seven was based on. The First Season of Kung Fu of course is just beyond compare, starring David Carradine. And...
