Kung Fu Training – Are you Driving Energy Or Pushing Energy?

Kung Fu TrainingOften times martial art practitioners end up pushing energy rather than driving energy. The result is their attacks aren’t as powerful as they can be and sometimes they tend to over shoot their intended target.

Another problem occurs because ultimately the longer a person practices pushing energy the harder the habit is to break. I know through training with people some folks don’t realize they are pushing energy.

They will swear up and down that they are not pushing energy until I demonstrate to them the difference. Then the process of correcting the bad habit that was formed begins. [Read more…]

    While this kung fu technique I am going to share with you applies to Wing Chun it can also apply to any martial art. Because the ability to channel energy throughout the body is universal. It's not just a Wing chun thing or Tai Chi thing. It can apply to Karate, Jujitsu, Akido or any martial…

Understanding the Purpose Of Cross Arm Don Chi – Wing Chun Training

Wing Chun is an amazing martial art. It has a very colorful history, throughout the years people have held to the idea that less is more. There are lots of politics in Wing Chun, though I am sure there are lots of politics in all the different martial arts.

What I believe separates Wing Chun from other martial art systems is that it relies on a persons skill to work rather than a persons strength.  If there is anything I learned in my own Wing Chun training it’s that patience is a virtue.

Often times I tell my own students that if you took someone who was doing MMA style fighting, they might fair better than someone who does TMA style fighting not because one is superior than the other, but because the MMA way of fighting is to get in the ring and start working it out. The TMA style of training is more interested if foundation is strong.

When I first started training, I struggled when I sparred against MMA (type) martial artist, I say type because many styles make up MMA… I only knew a handful of techniques in my first 5 years of training.  My sensitivity was still at a baby stage.  There is much more to this story that I will share at my other blog. For now though check out a new video we uploaded on the basics of Cross Arm Don Chi Sau
