REAL TO REEL // TAAN DA PT.2

Once some sufficient, and of course consistent, drilling and practice pf Taan Da has been put to work evolve it with more energy, intention, aggression, variety, and other real variables.
Introducing a variety of unfamiliar, non drill-compliant, and unorthodox attacking lines to make your understanding and application more dynamic and powerful.

REAL TO REEL // TAAN DA PT.1

This class' focuses on a fundamental Lin Siu Dai Da action: Taan Da.
Connecting concept, to construct, to coordination to control the action, space, and the most important threat being the opponent.

A well employed controlling action should create an unobstructed line of attack for the Da (punching or striking action) to hit the target.

REAL TO REEL // CHANGING

This class' subject worked changing from an Outside/Fook Sau position to inside employing Huen Sau in coordination with Juen Ma, and from Inside/Taan Sau position to outside employing Bong Sau using Daan Chi/Single Hand Chi Sau as the drilling exercise.

Change occurs out of necessity when one finds themselves structurally or positionally compromised by either the training partner's, and eventually would be opponent's, control of space and position, compromise of control and structure, sideways pushing energy, and/or excessive force and strength employed by the other in response to your structural and positional maintenance. 

Eyes Up, Elbows Down.

Coming from another VT/WC environment into another can be a challenging adjustment at times.
Schools and lineages have their own training methods and ideologies impressed within an individual.

But once one changes their perspective to understanding, recognizing, and applying themselves to their training one's learning curve and improvements pursue what works when provided with the tools to grow.

Garfield has only just begun to learn the Mook Yan Jong in our last 3 private sessions and has evolved from playing techniques to employing actions with purpose and understanding.

It's incredible to participate in and witness light bulb moments of realization growth in a student.
