What sort of drills are you doing? Chi sao, etc?

Are you working chest pummeling? If not, try and pick that up. Otherwise just keep at it.


Good luck and have fun!

Are they the Pak Sau Da and Lop Sau Da drills? I think with all sensitivity training you have to feel your way through them, if you are tense maybe you are anticipating your training partner's moves - which is also a giveaway for them when you are about to pak sau or lop sau. Just have to give it time and practice, try some exercises to loosen up your shoulders and remember to breathe

It might prove helpful for you if you had a friend or fellow student to practice the sensitivity drills with, practising on your own will help you with getting the form correct, but it really helps to have another person with you so you can feel what sensitivity training is all about. Usually people are trained to be light in their movements, and only exert any pressure when they need to execute the pak sau or the lop sau, so the other person can't feel you tense up right before you do them and give your intentions away. I'm sure some Wing Chun students can shed more light on this, since that's where it comes from, if I'm not horribly mistaken.

Just have fun with it, take things at your own pace and don't be afraid to ask your instructors if you're not 100% sure about something, that's what they're there for

My advice on relexing is simply let go of your emotions and your mind to some extent. Also if your scared that you will mess up its bad to your training and progress in jkd. Just let your instincts and reactions do that work, maybe in the beginning you might mess up alot but in the future if you stay relexed and be not concerned with the outcome then it will really pay off for you.
Like i said just relex and don't think about the outcome of the drill just go with it and eventually you'll get better and better with time.
