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.

First 100 Days Challenge for 2019

We will run the first SKD 100 days challenge for 2019 from 1 Jan to 10 Apr 2019.

The objective is to put in a serious, focused effort to master the first strike of SKD. Paul has already made good progress. All he needs now is one major push to master it.

You can see how Paul’s posture and body alignment has changed over a 9 month period below :-

The evolution of Paul’s body alignment – by using the same yellow line slant on each of the three photos we can see how his alignment progressed from totally out to just nice.

At the end of the 100 days we will make a 100 days video to see how members who take part have progressed.
