    OMG, truly aweful :)

    I forget where we had the debate about Bruce Lee's bag work, but it's probably in a locked thread anyway

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6EHneoS-r8

    Bruce Lee's fighting method, as taught by two of his students... the paper thing is just plain silly, but forward to the focus mitt parts

    Oivey...

    I don't think I will ever understand clips like this.

    Look, if you are just doing an instructional on a specific technique and such, yes I can see that you may not focus much on how to fight with it when you are showing how to develop power and speed and yes, your hands may be lower than they should and you may not be as tight as you should, etc, etc.
    Maybe...

    But when you are doing bag work or mitt work and throwing combos and using footwork then you MUST do it right, which means:
    Hands up, chin down, head movement, balanced and correct footwork and throwing combos like they will be thrown in an actual fight.

    Praise be my Lord my Rock,
    He trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle !

    I understand it perfectly, as long as you attach the name Bruce Lee to it, you can show pretty much anything and people will die trying to make excuses why it is actually great

    That was done in the 1970's. What they were showing was light years ahead of the forms clips that you showed from that same era.

    As far as the hands up, the bigger guy is Richard Bustillo. He's a former competitive boxer and is coach and official for USA amateur boxing. His hands were always up in the clip.

    Kind of ironic that this guy

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5Z8Gpq-RUY&app=desktop

    is the one criticizing that clip.

    It does pretty much sum up his essence though.

    YOu have helped many be less dumb here. But you have also increased teh dumbness wrought by denial with this statement.

    there will be a hoard of Bruce Lee butt munchers in here shortly to reference your yelp reviews and that mma fight you lost to moses in sinai so long ago. lol
    Kung Fu is good for you.

    and so, despite all your wordiness, you still can't deny that it's true...

    I don't deny it's true.
    Also, I really don't care much for Bruce Lee butt munching.

    This is really good mitt work, I had never thought of incorporating ground game with focus mitts, very interesting....

    You can have Kung Fu in cooking, it really has nothing to do with fighting!

    use ground and pound drills a good bit with focus mitts. We have some different drills from this one but pretty much same direction.

    A week ago, I watched a clip with a number of Jerry Poteet's students doing their jkd, some of it was pretty fun to watch, I don't know a lot about jkd other than from the old BL books. Most of the stuff I saw was fairly close to that.

    The thing with the clip above is the extent of heavy bag work without footwork. My strikes benefited most when I realized that standing there doesn't help.
