Session 12

Hey All

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!.

Progress – White Crane Session 11 and prior

Hello All

 

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.

WHITE CRANE GUNG FU – SESSION Seven

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!

White Crane Gung Fu – Session Six

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.

Back to Training

Hello All

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!
