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!
Lots of footwork Drills dependant on the knees in a bent position in today’s session. We did basic footwork with a twist, do each movement and do it as slowly as possible I’m a minute, and we repeated that basic movement about 4 times.
We also did a kind of pushing hands sensitivity training which reminded me of what we did in Chi Sau.
I also continued to work on my soft style form and its looking good. I may do a few videos when I’ve gotten further with it.
Night all !
We had an extra class this week today.
While classmates worked their forms for the grading today. So I worked on my soft white crane form and got further into the movement and further corrections.
Below is a video of the form I’m practising. I’m at about 0:47 so far.
