This is a demo of ………… I’ll have to view back the longer clip in our SKD FB learning group to see what topic we were talking about here.
Anyway, the background is that our use of high stances gave Stanley’s Hung Gar buddy the impression that our method is so-so.
So here was an excellent opportunity to let Stanley acquaint himself with one side of the argument. It would be good if he were to go check out his pal’s stance work for comparison.
I would call this method the stance of no-stance. You can see Stanley taking a look at how I was standing as he couldn’t believe it that I wasn’t standing in a low stance, or even in a stance.
I didn’t tell Stanley to cooperate by not pushing hard so that I can look good. I just let him push however he sees fit. You can see how he changed his position towards the end.
This outwardly rootless method is a result of training the bell body method of Grandmaster Wei Shuren. I present a simplified way of doing it in this post here.
