Real To Reel // Chi Sau Drilling • Bong Sau Counter

During our second training session with PVT España - Ving Tsun Almería we worked a variety of Lin Siu Dai Da actions through Chi Sau amd the relative counters to each action.

Here we explored one of three counters to Jut Da in employing Bong Sau when our space has been compromised by the aforementioned initiating action.

Employing Bong Sau in a proactive manner to intercept the attacking action applying Paau Bong (throwing Bong) concepts and activity in coordination with Juen Ma and Yi Bong (shifting Bong) to have the line of attack, force, mass, and momentum off our centre while creating an angle of counter attack as a result of the recovered control of person and position.
The Bong Sau elbows intention toward the centre of our training partner and would-be opponent.

Note: Laap Sau is the viable option if/when our line of counter attack is obstructed by any form of reaction in which the helping hand does its job to get the job done.

Thank you to my brother @pvt_spain and and extended family at PVT Group 純。詠春 - Almeria.
Special thanks to Pablo Nevado for the video.

Real To Reel // Counter Actions 

What WSLVT focuses on developing is, simply, one's punch.
But how do we facilitate being able to deliver the punch and/or counter-punch to target when met with a live opponent's aggression, counter-actions, and reactions?

This is where our controlling hands such as Taan Sau, Pak Sau, Laap Sau, Jut Sau, and Wu Sau work in coordination with our counter-punch and punch as Lin Siu Dai Da (simultaneous block/control and attack) actions of Taan Da, Pak Da, Laap Da, Jut Da, and others.

Driling and training helps us develop the reflexes for our actions to adapt to manage the would-be opponent's intercepting, inhibiting, or retaliating actions challenging your counter-punch, punch, or line of attack while working to control centre, position, and space.
We learn to change our actions to adapt to manage the would-be opponent's live actions and reactions.

Drilling helps us learn how to maintain our structure, the correct angle of engagement, manage distance/space, develop good timing, and invest the right energy toward developing controlled and balanced actions that develop one's power that channels into that most important resource...
The punch.

Thank you to our family and friends at @kungfualmeria !

Real To Reel // Jut Da Counter - Taan Da

One of three counters to Jut Da was Taan Da when visiting my brother Sifu Juan and his great group of students at @pvt_spain 

When one maintains positional control of the initiating action, Jut Da, we can take position/consume space to shut down the attack while destabilizing the structure and balance of the attacker by managing good timing and angle.

Heartfelt thank you to my brother Sifu Juan Manuel Sanz and PVT Spain for their great welcome and opportunity to train with them.

Real To Reel // Focus Mitts Training

Focus mitts are a great resource to develop one's target recognition of person and position which also heightens moving target recognition and timing along with fitness and power.

Both parties should develop equally with the focus mitts holder also employing chain punch mechanics in coordination with good stance, footwork, and positioning.

This clip was from our recent visit with our extended family @kungfualmeria in Spain.
