RazorFoot and myself had the pleasure of a workout with our very own FA.com member VDJ tonight. He met up at Razor's TKD school, where he joined in for the regular class, then stayed and did some sparring with us. We started off with a Wing Chun redirection drill, then went to sparring (no kicks, then sparring with kicks.

VDJ, like Razor, has very good hands. Certainly not the stereotypical TKD! VDJ has also got some strong kicks, evidenced by my sore back right now, after taking a good shot from him. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

He was a great sport for jumping right in on the type of training that we normally do, and fitting right in. Including a nice clinch/knee combo to ME when I tried to get him with it first, LOL.

Here are some no-kick vids to start with:

The pleasure was mine. This was great fun tonite Razor and Matt were very accomodating to my hectic schedule in the area this week.Razors instructor was also very hospitable and I would like to thank him publicly for allowing me to come in and train (as well as the open invitation to return).

I arrived a couple of minutes after the adult class had started (which Razor taught). Great Fun and he is very good in his teaching abilities (patient and clear in his instruction). One of the drills was a "building" drill in which he called a technique and then just continued to build upon them (front kick, axe kick followed with double punch,followed with round kick followed with side kick follwed with jump back kick). And I swear Razor the speed on that one jump back kick was so fast that you just missed it .

As Matt mentioned above we did some Wing Chung exercises with parrying and countering and a little bit of sparring. It was nice to have some fresh talent to go up against as well as going outside the box of regular sparring rules. The aggression was just right as well as the control (though I think one or two got away from all of us at one time or another). I think I caught Matt off guard with the knee strikes and bothe he and Razor have pretty good side kicks. Well I too am up later than I should be but I was curious if Matt was going to get some of the vids up tonight. Matt and Razor, thanks again for a great night of fun.

If you don't get stung now and then, you're not training with the right people! If I were 5 states closer (and 15 years younger?) I'd like to roll with you guys.

Nice to see what VDJ looks like after all of these years.

Was clinching with takedowns allowed? Or was this just stand up fighting?

Clinching, but not takedowns. We had intended to do a bit of groundfighting, but the "old guys" gassed.

Looks like fun. Don't worry Matt, I would gas as well especially as of lately. Haven't fully recovered from my flu/bronchitis that put me down for 3 weeks. This is week 5 and I still am looking for the energy I used to have.

Thanks for sharing.

Don't be fooled by my looks. I'm 7 plus years Matt's senior, if you get the chance come on down. It's a great time.
