I wrote this small book on how to make the most of the resources and still get as much potential as possible. It's also my journey from a lookey loo to a fighter and then a trainer in the very first generation of MMA. Not a masterpiece but I'm good with it
Not sure how else to write you on here. Looks like the Wing Chu kicks page got closed for replies but a while back you mentioned having a list/drill or something relating to those 8 kicks plus extra did you ever find it?
The thread was locked before I even read it all. I'm not qualified to debate the relative merit of live vs. dull blades so I won't. I just wanted to say I hope you are feeling better and return to training soon.
I used Aikikenjitsu my name for practicing and teaching American Kenpo. Aftere a short while, I went back to calling it American Kenpo, my version. It was my kenpo because I did not believe in forms, but only techniques. I teach American Kenpo my way: I shorten the techniques. forms. I therefore shorten techniques and it does not hurt the effectiveness of it at all.
Everybody poopoos online martial arts but I believe it can be done with the right teacher and the right student. Learning from video is not enough though, you need someone to provide feedback. You might try this place: Arizona Wing Chun Association. If you do, tell Master Bradley that Jon Ferguson from Hapkido-Online sent you. He will take good care of you.
