Basics depends on the system you are training, it won't be the same for all systems. The only thing that they all have in common is that they are foundation skill in which more complex skills are learned.But then, what do you consider basics? Many of the punches I described above are considered basic and fundamental to how our system works.
Basics for me are more numerous than the systems that only have straight punch, jab, reverse punch, hook, upper cut, cross. These are my basics as well but like you have other techniques that are basics as well. They are the foundational skill set that I build upon. I've been working on these basics for 6 months now. Tonight I started to work on my Jow Ga specific basics. my first step was to simply swing my arms and try to relax in the process.But then, what do you consider basics?
A person doesn't have to train all basics. For example, I haven't train Jow Ga basics out side of what I mentioned above. For 6 months it's been those punches and footwork.We have a wide enough variety that people can choose to focus on certain techniques and not on others, based on what they are interested in and what they feel works well for them.
