I have begun uploading the clips from the meeting with SKD member, Melvin, on 17 Nov 2018.
Over the 2-hour meeting I shared info with Melvin on SKD and related topics. One topic is that of close range bridge arm which SKD Level 1 does not address. I used Hung Gar of which Melvin is a practitioner as an example to talk about the subject.
We also talked about the two strikes in SKD Level 1 and application :-
Of course, we also talked about power which is everybody’s favorite topic. Except in this case its the power developed from SKD Level 1 rope pulling exercise :-
In SKD the power needs to be functional in that it is integral to the use of the technique. In this case, this would be the Yum Chui where the exercise enhances the power and use of the technique.
Not to forget that all strikes must go with blocks. At the end of the clip below is a short demo of SKD’s 6-blocks.
