• Thanks Sifu

    A lot of information there overall.

    Definitely what has passed me by is thinking of being in an actual turn to an opponent when square on to the dummy.

    I need to have a good look through the online videos or maybe any blogs to aid my understanding.

    I like the attacking the attack concept and can recall you saying it numerous…[Read more]

  • Hi Lee,

    Again, I will answer these points as I read them:

    ‘When in the final destination of a die bong would I be correct in saying the other arm cannot punch because it’s out of range?’
    and
    ‘Not the little test you describe (pak and palm strike with tan hand)or like the last section where it is necessary to square up to put the strike in.’
    I t…[Read more]

  • Cheers Sifu

    Yes it makes sense. Thanks.
    Another question regarding the die bong.

    When in the final destination of a die bong would I be correct in saying the other arm cannot punch because it’s out of range? Like the first section (tans and side palm other hand) Not the little test you describe (pak and palm strike with tan hand)or like the l…[Read more]

    Just did the 500 punch warm up and my arms feel like rubber! I am excited to build my stamina and upper body core strength as I progress.

  • SBM is working hands and feet, changing ranges etc. but also recovering centre, therefore we allow it to be lost in order to recover it, always make sure you know you are doing this deliberately and then the overcommitment will not become acceptable.

    Hmm… great answer! Thanks gents!

  • Everything, but as you say, just a little bit.

    Please remember that we are not training ourselves to overcommit, we are training ourselves what do to do if we overcommit.

    🙂

  • Hi Lee,

    Missing seeing you but good to know you’re in the wings.
    As this is a ling looking question, I will answer as I read.

    ‘I’m really trying to understand the key concepts of the dummy which I think is position and moving around an opponent.’
    AND staying close while doing it.

    ‘I also have in mind some of the descriptions you have used w…[Read more]

    As soon as that message got to space I knew I spelled that wrong. Sorry mate!!!

    Great question Duanne!!!😬

    Great question Dwayne!

  • Duanne Silver replied to the topic Sarm Bok Mar in the forum Members Forum 6 days, 11 hours ago

    Well that’s great to hear!
    And while we are on the subject of Sarm Bak Mar drills; when we “over-committ” just a little bit to allow a follow-up attack, are we over-committing with just our hand, our hand and shoulders, or hand, shoulders and hips?

  • Sifu Colin Ward replied to the topic Dok Sau in the forum Members Forum 6 days, 17 hours ago

    Nice to hear from you Lee!

    Fan sau means ‘continuous attacks’, not going potty on each other, but simply meaning that the strikes are coming from an already existing contact but not necessarily from the roll.

    Hi Sifu hope you’re good.
    I’m still at it btw but cannot make the Thursday classes.

    I have a question I can hardly put into words but I will give it a go.

    It’s come about because I’m practicing the dummy as much as I can. I’m really trying to understand the key concepts of the dummy which I think is position and moving around an opponent.…[Read more]

  • Lee C replied to the topic Dok Sau in the forum Members Forum 1 week ago

    What is Fan Sau please?
    Thanks

  • Sifu Colin Ward replied to the topic Dok Sau in the forum Members Forum 1 week, 2 days ago

    Mmmm,

    Not necessarily, it may (and usually does) come from the rolling action first, but either would work, providing your partner understands the need to wait, allowing you to exhaust all options regarding the left attack then the right, the left support then the right, the left step in then the right, the left step out then the right, all with…[Read more]

  • Sifu Colin Ward replied to the topic Sarm Bok Mar in the forum Members Forum 1 week, 2 days ago

    Duanne, BRILLIANT!

    This is the very essence of what I mean by learning through teaching, teach your students properly and you will learn from them, however in this case, it’s all yours.

    A great idea, well done.

    I will start thinking of this straight away.

    This is a great drill to work WITH a partner but yes, why not still train it solo, and…[Read more]

  • Duanne Silver started the topic Dok Sau in the forum Members Forum 1 week, 2 days ago

    Just so I have a better understanding in regards to dok sau, would dok sau essentially be fan sau with the allowance of fan sau by your training partner after their initial attack? Perhaps it is even what we are training in our virtual sparring sessions so that we get comfortable with what is available to us after an attack.

  • Duanne Silver replied to the topic Sarm Bok Mar in the forum Members Forum 1 week, 2 days ago

    I had a thought on training Sarm Bak Mar drills virtually; similar to virtual sparring.
    Using SBM with single pak saus seems like a feasible training exercise to utilize virtually. We could quite possibly even expand into threes, fives, and sevens. I think this would would give students an opportunity to test their SBM abilities while engaging…[Read more]
