Decoding SKD Training Sequence No. 1 – Part 4

The fifth part of the Training Sequence examines the application of 5 Tigers Descending Mountain, a series of techniques built around the Charp Chui.

We also learn about the use of the long range 6-blocks. This is a series of quick movements of the hand to control and open up the training partner’s gate to a strike.

The long range and short range version of 6-blocks should be practiced alongside the fifth part.

The use of 5 Tigers Descending Mountain is predominantly at the long range here with the introduction of one technique to recover our range in the event the training partner is able to move in close. This is also the reason why we need to study the close range 6-blocks.
