Saw a link on a forum and followed it. Its for a DVD by William Cheung on street applications. It is interesting how William Cheung sees Choy Li Fut as shown below :-
The circular strike shown in the DVD is somewhat similar to one I taught to my student recently. However, we view the application differently. Here is an example :-
When we practice we normally tone it down so that its not too painful and end up disrupting the training. However, occasionally we need to remind ourselves of what it would be like if we are not holding back. Below is an example of the effect on an opponent’s bridge if we add power to the strike :-
What is seen here is the training to acquire the core skills of the technique because obviously no opponent is that stupid to just stand there for you to hit. We do some other training to examine the question of what happens if the opponent is also moving around and trying to hit you back. Obviously, this is something that we normally do not show to the public because its always nice to keep some surprises handy when its needed.
