Daily Defense

This is a tool which I feel has potential to be a self defense weapon for ladies.

It can work well with SKD’s basic 6-Blocks and strikes. Something to keep in mind if you are on the lookout for a tool to protect yourself.

I know you can call the police but they do take the time to get there by which time its all over. Remember – your safety is in your hands.

Quarterly Challenges

In another 20 days time the 100-Day Yum Chui Challenge will end.

After this the 100-Day Challenge will be converted to Quarterly Challenges so that we can have 4 challenges in a year. In this way we can master at least 80% of the core syllabus of SKD Level 1 by end of 2019.

Unlike the majority of challenges on the internet the Quarterly Challenges will run non-stop. Members who take part will push themselves to train daily. Even if they do not end up mastering the challenge, the daily training should at least leave them with a level of competence.

The serious member should also carry on with the 1st Quarter Challenge (previously known as the 100-Day Yum Chui Challenge). They should continue up to Day 300 for that extra edge in mastery.

SKD Member Training

We are nearly 3/4 of the way through the SKD 100 days Yum Chui challenge.

One of the SKD members from Australia came for training in Level 1 syllabus. The objective is to bring him up to speed on knowledge and skills so that a training group can be formed there.

Level 1 training covered the refinements and application of Yum Chui and Chau Chui, integration of techniques into a arm contact training platform, and 6-blocks (practice and application).

Some of the training is shown below :-

SKD Easy

Take a look at this clip. It is a clip of my student, PL, doing the Yum Chui :-

For the fun of it I asked the Slack SKD Learning Group how long they thought PL has learned the Yum Chui. Two members guessed a week.

I have said that SKD is not difficult to learn and this video helped to make my point. The reason – PL had only learned it about 10 minutes before this video was taken.
