    Footwork and Movement

    The moment that you move your leading leg, the moment that the distance between you and your opponent has changed. When you move your back leg first, you don't have to take any risk. If your opponent's leg can't reach to your leading leg (and your body), when you move your back leg, his leg...

    Footwork and Movement

    This is a good way to train the timing for sweep. When you lift one of your opponent's legs off, before that foot land back down, you sweep his rooting leg. The shin bite will work here too without any timing issue. This is why you should train shin bite (timing is not important) before you...

    Footwork and Movement

    You use - back leg to sweep. - leading leg to shin bite, scoop, sticky lift, scoop kick. The sweep should be trained in the following order: shin bite (45 degree downward) -> scoop (horizontal) -> sticky lift (vertical) -> scoop kick (45 degree upward)-> sweep (45 degree upward) IMO, the...

    Agree! Trying to cover too much distance can be an issue. Here is another example.

    Footwork and Movement

    When you step in your leading foot, if your opponent can hook his foot behind your ankle, he can help you to move forward more than you want to, you will fall.

    Footwork and Movement

    In CMA, it's always a good idea to move your back foot first. Just like the cross comes after the jab, the front foot advance is better to be after the back foot advance. You don't want your opponent to scoop your leading foot.

    Footwork and Movement

    You have presented a good example why one should not cross his legs. At 0.40 and 0.50, if his opponent uses left foot to sweep his right foot, he will be down. In the following clip, when he uses "cover step", his low leg is parallel to the ground until his foot lands on the other side of his...

    Footwork and Movement

    When you line up your back foot with with both of your opponent's feet, if you move in from that angle, you will have the following advantages: - No matter how your opponent may move his leading leg, his leading will always be under your attacking range. - Your opponent's back hand will have no...

    Have you ever considered quitting your MA(s)?

    MA training has to do with your health. Your health has to do with how long you will live. To quite MA is like to decide that you no longer want to live.

    Footwork and Movement

    There is different between you move one leg 1. behind the other leg (stealing step). 2. in front of the other leg (cover step). 1 is safer than 2. 2 is the one that people should worry about.

    You can take your opponent down. Should WC cross the boundary of striking art and move into the wrestling art?

    Footwork and Movement

    To use your shin bone to run into the inside of your opponent's leg can be a good footwork.

    Footwork and Movement

    When you walk, you are crossing your legs. If you move toward your opponent, to cross your legs has no issue. It's when you move side way and when you are in your opponent's kicking range, there will be issue there. Most of the foot sweep require 2 contact points. 1. Your foot on your...

    Aikido.. The reality?

    CMA also use this approach too. When you - run long distance, - carry heavy weight, - train human flag, - train pole hanging, - ... you try to think about anything except your body. This way you can take more physical pain than you normally can.

    Aikido.. The reality?

    One night I walked in a dark alley in Rio de Janeiro, a guy had his back against the wall, he looked at me, looked at my watch, looked at me, and looked at my watch again. He then turned his head around. Next night I had blue jean and leather jacket on with my long hair (a long hair China man...

    Advanced Wing Chun Structure

    At 0.37 of your clip, your opponent's left Fu Shou is on top of your right Tan Shou. Why don't you rotate your right arm counter-clockwise and use your right hand to grab on his left wrist? One thing that I don't understand about the WC sticky hand training is the missing of "avoid contact -...

    Aikido.. The reality?

    I hate the term "self defense" too. You assumes that you are the only good guy, everybody on earth are all bad guys and try to get you. It's a terrible way to live your life this way.

    Aikido.. The reality?

    One has to train how to deal with punches. Some MA styles such as Aikido just don't train enough in this area. The training is simple. Your opponent tries to knock your head off. You try not to get knocked down. Try for 1 minute per round. Test 15 rounds daily.

    Aikido.. The reality?

    This is why I believe not to get punched is the most important MA skill. In the - beginner training stage, if your opponent throws 100 punches at you and no punch can land on your body, - advance training stage, if you don't allow your opponent to throw more than 10 punches, you should...

    Aikido.. The reality?

    Not if you guide your opponent's leading arm to jam his own back arm. If you also bite your shin bone into your opponent's leading leg, you don't have to worry about his legs either. Do untrained guys know how to do this? I don't think so.

    Controlling And Dominating the Opponents Center

    One will need to train at least 4 basic leg skills to attack his opponent's - right leg from outside. - right leg from inside. - left leg from inside. - left leg from outside. Now we get into the 4 sides principles.

    Controlling And Dominating the Opponents Center

    Old MA saying said, "It's better to be inside than to be outside. It's better to be on top than to be below." To have both arms inside of your opponent's arms always give you the advantage.

    Opening and Closing the Center pt 2

    What you have described is the separate hands principle. - Upward separate hands (for head lock, or over hook). - Downward separate hands (for bear hug, under hook, or double legs). - Right up, left down separate hands (for front belt hold). - Right down, left up separate hands (for shoulder...

    Aikido.. The reality?

    Without testing, the common sense tell me, when you - grab on my wrist, if my elbow joint is free, - throw me, if my legs are free, I can still do a lot of things.

    Aikido.. The reality?

    If we compare wrestling, Judo, and Aikido, we can see that their contact points are different. - Wrestlers like to control the shoulder gate. - Judo guys like to control the elbow gate. - Aikido guys like to control the wrist gate. Why are the difference? IMO, the closer the control, the less...
