    Drills That Represent Your Style

    If you want just come up 4 drills to represent your style, what will those 4 drills be? Of course we can change the number from 4 to 6, 8, 10, ... but let's just start from 4 at this moment.

    Let me try the longfist system first:

    - Wrist lock, back hand horizontal punch (cross), leading hand vertical punch (jab).
    - Hook punch, back fist, uppercut, hammer fist, vertical punch (jab).
    - Hammer fist, groin kick, face punch (jab).
    - Grab and cross punch, toe kick and cross punch at the same time, leading hand vertical punch (jab).

    What will you pick your basic 4 combos if you are WC guy, Taiji guy, Baji guy, Bagua guy, ...?

    According to some folks around here it's may pole dancing followed by mutual hand jobs, but that is their loss.

    punches and strikes: jab/cross/hook/ tiger claw

    combo enter:
    left jab/ left jab/ right cross/ guard with right tiger claw-cradle blow with left tiger claw

    combo defend:
    diagonal step outside(stay tight) / pat(pak sao or tan sao)/ shovel kick toes outward, straight kick to the shin just below the knee), follow with elbow.

    There's tons more, really basic drills that can be dragged into sparring easily and used on heavy bag as well.
    Kung Fu is good for you.

    For Tong bei

    1. shuang shou or small circling hand

    2. Tang zhang testing hand or tapping hand.

    3. pi zhang axe hand

    4. Shuai zhang or back hand palm

    We start with circling hand big or small circle

    then add 2,3 or 4.

    in any combination.

    we start with fixed steps

    then walking a straight line, figure 8, s curve etc etc

    We may also start with pi (3) and follow with more pi or other hand methods.

    fun, fun and fun.

    Why do you choose those moves to represent your style? If you want to teach someone just those 4 drills and then send him into a fight, are those moves the most combat effective in your opinion?

    On a serious note:

    Pek, pek, chao, pao, pao.
    As other have said many on the list to choose from (I personally like tiger claw a lot)

    Side block, mantis, back fist, turn down hammer fist.... the quickest counter I have even seen. this allows openings in front and side door as well as upper and lower gates.
    KUNG FU USA
    www.eightstepkungfu.com
    Teaching traditional Ba Bu Tang Lang (Eight Step Praying Mantis)
    Jin Gon Tzu Li Gung (Medical) Qigong
    Wu style Taiji Chuan



    Teacher always told his students, "You need to have Wude, patient, tolerance, humble, ..." When he died, his last words to his students was, "Remember that the true meaning of TCMA is fierce, poison, and kill."

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