i take it we're talking about a street situation or sparring.
the street my first hit would be the groin-to bring his hands back down or just hopefully drop him.
sparring-agin the floating ribs with some low turning punches.
we also just use the weight of our arms to crash and smash thru.
i meant me be stronger in that side-as i tire or get pressured by my opponent it tends to drop too low and therefore compromises my defence. i tend to pull back on the taan.i am concentrating so much on the roll at the moment my defences ans even my attacks are pants- once i get...
i hear ya mate.
we do not teach the dummy form as standard but sifu offers special seminars just to keep our interest/motivation etc
and as the dummy was one of the main things that brought me to wing chun-i just loved watching bruce lee as a kid, it was something i jumped at learning.
we dont actually learnt he dummy officailly till much further on in our training but i was desperate to learn it so i asked to attend a specific dummy seminar.
sifu told us it was good practice to learn it without the dummy.
and i have in the past dones so.
i find it harder lol
ok i,m getting to the plan now
i figure its more beneficial to me to cover a few things more regularly in the 45min slot than work on just one thing for the duration only once per week.
and i have to write it down as a plan because the ocd side of me wants a disciplined schedule i can stick to...
i just checked back into this post and saw this,i actually laughed out so loud, two people came to see what was so funny!!
i seem to have dropped this from training so i,m glad i did check back in...... another thing to go back on the list.
venusian is now my second language and its tougher than learning the remotest dialect of swaheli whilst being deaf and blind lol!
they say the same words but they have a whole different meaning!! luckily i am almost an honary lifetime member now. i,m sure i have moods monthly ,in sympathy:shock...
graychuan... i agree.
its a sparring battle with no form or shapes just a determination to get the hit in at the expense of, well nothing in some of those clips.
a nice ego trip to get the strike in and even when they get clipped on the way in they seem to think it was worth it.
see thats what you get for being surrounded by people much younger than yourselves.... luckily for me their all female... i,m the only male in 18 employees so woooooooohoooooo to that!!
wow.i helped someone!!woop!
ur more than welcome buddy. i hvae been helped more times than i can mention by the guys on here. so it feels good to contribute when i can.
and by posting on here it often rminds me of stuffi,m forgetting also.
not sure how i feel about that clip gray old bean!
its so unlike how we are taught that i think i can see opportunities for me to strike through but videos are deceptive and untill i actually touched hands i certainly wouldnt make any negative comments about the clip.
i would like to expericnce...
lets turn this on its head mate....... wen someone trains with you and are "aggressive" in their approach it allows you to feel the moves/techniques and apply them in "real" time yes??
thats what everyone here is saying, i believe........
the by not returning the favour to them you are doing...
leading on from cwk thread-and training alone i am going to be spending a lot more time focused on my wing chun.
i am dropping my 3 mornings of gym and cardio for the next 8 weeks or so.
this means i will have 4 mornings per week where i get 45mins to practice.
how would you all set...
yeah mate...know what you mean.
and that is def not just an armchair critic speaking either!
wen i,m doing something-rolling or sparring etc i,m now at the stage where i can see i just missed an opportunity or a gap but didnt have the skill or timing to take advantage....i,m hoping that means...
from my very inexperienced eyes i saw a very chilled chi sau. i think yellow top didnt so much pull his punches but realised the attack wasnt there-mr white top out maneuvered him or broke his angle just enough to nulify.
again i saw very low tan and bong and very wide elbows which i think is a...
Bully- I'm not sure I would shouting so loud I played with my pole alone at home alot lol....
But I think it's again like the rest of wing chun... Looks so easy and simple untill u try to do it.
I think I'll b lucky enough to have a sifu who will help me even if it's one tiny aspect at a time...
sounds like a great first session to me.
lots of variety and some idea of what you will be doing.
if it was me . id stick to that club for a while and see how it goes!!!
if doing just SLT for the first few years sounds like it will be boring and repetitious........... you couldnt be more wrong...
I appreciate why it is left to very advanced students and i will probably get just as fustrated in a few years when I'm happier with my unarmed skill set. This was an imprmptu session and I spent most of the hour + session going thru just the basicmoves on a 121 basis with one of the sifus.
no pun taken.... but funny!
im going to get a pole and work with my weds sifu privately if he can do it. and ill use it to build my base,my knowledge and my strength in the right areas.
just wondered how many people-moreso the less experienced have got to use them. its fascinating and as you...
i did a whole session with the pole last night- not thats its part of our usual curriculum but we were working on some specifics,
copying a demo peice my sifu uses.
and wow - so much fun but OMG this morning i cant move my wrists and forearms lol
i,m going to get a heavy pole and start...
dont take me too literally mate
i,m not beaten up lol. we do all sorts of rolling and at times we take it as close to sparring as we can and i mean it to say they get thru more than i would like them to.
and thank you for the other input.
me and my regualr partner actually try to roll...
mograph.... i would say more likely the wrong few muscles.
most weight trainers have a tendency to go too heavy on every exercise they do and use the complimentary muscles to assist in the lift.
for example the bench press
if you hunch up your shoulders and traps they actually do 45% of the work...
ok mate i hear ya!!
i,m a big guy. been bodybuilding for nearly 20 yrs off and on and the advice given to me by my sifu who will not accept my "excuses" about muscle/tension and the stuff you just said lol....
you are trying to pull your elbow in with your pecs-this is inevitable as you have...
Your primary defence will be your centreline punch , ie punching as soon as you see him move, attack , attack , attack.
sifu will always say why block if you can punch.
or otherwise and i believe we would use a laan sau in the same way as you guys describe dai sau with a punch as we step in to...
