Description:Comprehensive instruction by Sifu Allen, covering many aspects of using material from your forms in actual self-defense situations, free sparring, or man-to-man technique work. Combined lecture/demonstration format filmed during actual class time, it takes a reality approach and covers principles to be employed in combat and therefore, everything discussed is also applicable to weapons work as well. Just some of the categories covered: the classical Chinese 3-count response in attack or defense; deflection blocking vs. power on power; the all-important ''crossing the opponent's centerline'' and how to train for it; angularity vs. linearity; the principle of penetration; proper use of the left hand; the ''X'' position coverage, and much more. Loaded with insights that will improve your movement and conceptualization for self-defense. This is Sifu at his finest, 'No BS' approach!
