In Kali class earlier this week. Combining the Hubud, a practical pummeling and entanglement exercise with the Wing Chun principles. Here’s a simple flow that we did in Jeet Kune Do class at the Tigard location.
This drill provides the fundamentals of proper range and tactile awareness. Layers of it will be used in sparring but you wouldn’t see two people permanently attached at the same range. Think of it more like the wrestling drills of wakizashi or wrist pummeling. The pattern helps orientate the student into the correct position with proper timing and build those foundations in muscle memory.
In our JKD class we have all skill levels from beginner to advanced and follow the Inosanto curriculum directly. For the closest local source to JKD in Portland, look no further than River City Warriors.
Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.
