Ashe,

I have to say that you've got a lot of power coming from nowhere, and I still can't figure out how you generate it. Maybe you're quite good at arm-wrestling?




that's why it's called "internal" baby!

thanks for the tips. i'm still working on that lead leg round house.

any suggestions on how to improve the flow between kicks and striking and back again? i feel that's my biggest deficiency right now.

Thaison, my Sifu will be in Thailand in August if you want to try and meet him.


I'd be honored to. Just send me a PM when he's coming and I'll try to meet up with him, now I just have to figure where to train?? A park would do I guess, but this heat is lethal

well he's from malaysia so he should be able to hang, and they all survived the humidity in beijing last summer. i'll let you know when he's going to be in country.

Well, you could maybe start working on the speed-bag a bit.

Need to work on shifting weight from the lead leg to the back leg, and back again. That's what boxing is all about, shifting your weight.

Once you've got a hang of it, you'll see how you can add more power into your leg. You need to have weight on your rear leg when you're about to kick and quickly transfer it to your kicking (lead) leg when it's being delivered for power. It's hard to explain in words.

To increase the flow between hands and legs? Well, strictly speaking, if you're at long range, stick to jabs and the occasional low kick. When you're getting into middle range, only kick low and use more jabs, and when you're in close-range, stick to upper-body techniques.

Ashe, the whole 'sticky hand' thing reminds me a lot of panantukan sensitivity drills in Filipino MA. I liked doing them, and the little traps and counters were fun, but I always found them more applicable against someone using the same skill set against you, and when it came to free sparring work, became limited very quickly- but then again, I was never that good at it
You have to make your training applicable to your art, and it appears that is exactly what you are doing (I would still try and keep my chin lower if my guard was where your is though )

i think that's probably true for most people who train these types of drills, but one thing we try to develop is "leading". in other words, once i make contact with you, i can basically direct where your hands are gonna go. that's how our qinna works. it's a result of the "fullness" and "roundness" of our training.
