Continued to work on the Sanzhan form yesterday in the 2 hour class, we also did at least 500 times one of the White Crane hand movements. My arms are killing me as i type this!.
I am looking to maybe post some videos soon to show my current progress. We are also having a seminar for Dog Style(DiShu Quan if i remember correctly) this weekend so i am very looking forward to that. Maybe i can even grab some photos from it!.
I highly recommend this blog for a read. Sifu Bill Dowding is one of the Ving Tsun Kuen practioniers in the world. He studied under Barry lee, direct student of Wong Shun Leung.
So since my last post on the 12th May i have progressed/news:
- I got my White Crane uniform
- We hit Pads and did kicking practise drills
- Began my study of the Sanzhan form
- Continued learning the Shuang Yang
I may decide to a video of the forms i have learned so far at a later date.
For May 12th:
We played abit of Jiangzi and then did a punch and grab/block drill and then some footwork. I am now getting to the point the Shuang Yang form is becoming abit more difficult in flexible movement!. But i continue to practise it nearly daily. I missed this weeks classes due to feeling unwell, but i will be at the next session on Tuesday. Which i also hope to have the uniform by then 🙂
Hope you all had a good weekend!
Sorry for this late post.
We covered Footwork mostly in this session that is typically seen in the Suang Yang form that i am currently learning. I have also been practising more of this form on my own to progress further. It’s a long and difficult to master form. once i have mastered this form i’ll be able to move onto sanzhan (Sanchin).
We had also practised abit of Chi Gung in the begining part of the session. While i am skeptical of that aspect it seems good from a meditative/light warm up point of view.
As the instructor had a week off and then i was occupied with something else last week. So i haven’t had a class in 2 weeks, so today will be my return to training. In the mean time i have been practicing the form i have been getting taught. I am guessing i am about 1/4 through this form now. The only difficulty has been my balance as i change my position and am standing on one leg!.
I’ll let you all know how today’s class goes!
