  1. Enjoyed the video? Subscribe, Give it a Thumbs Up and Comment Below.
    (Dan actually reads EVERY single legit comment from his loyal fans)

    Don't like the video? If you would be so kind as to
    FUCK OFF, it would be very much appreciated.
    You don't have to watch any of Dan's videos.

  2. The Shovel Hook is used a lot in Boxing too, often times causing massive damage when landed.
    That fact just shows how effective it is.

  3. Dan i love your videos truely appreciate the talent
    Can you tell me the difference between
    Kung fu Vs karate Vs Tai chi ??
    Sorry i don't know much about these
    Please do tell

  4. Much respect to you, Dan, for your explanation of why you are making these videos! I feel the same with the teaching I do. I want to give back for what was given to me.

  5. Would you consider adding a couple minutes to every one of these technical videos that serves as a "reversal"? Basically a quick mini segment that addresses how to counter the primary technique you are teaching. Another way of describing what I'm saying would be to have a thesis, anti-thesis and synthesis approach to sharing these techniques.

  6. Sir would you please explain how to do quarter swing and what it is? Bruce Lee included this in hand techniques section in his book Tao Of Jeet Kune Do but there is no description on google as well as youtube. I'll be very thankful.

  7. Really love all your video's. You're nearly at 100,000 subscribers! Wow! I think I found you on your first vid as that is my interest in you: wing chun, JKD, BL, MA, all encompassing – obviously you as a business mogul. I have been doing WC for nearly 15 months and just made advanced level. Been a long, hard road. But I love to find inspiration, ideas, concepts, techniques, philosophies from anywhere and you, sir, are one of my main inspirations.
    Thank you so much for enriching my life and helping me with everything MA you give and offer. Merry christmas and a Happy New Year! And… 'Be water, my friend.' RESPECT Thanks. 🙂

  8. Hey man..I've been doing Wing Chun for 3 years now practically spent all my free time doing forms n shaping up my body, so now I've noticed that although many of the guys at the training hall have been training for years with me and were pretty good at chi sao n all..but I'm the only one with muscles n like raw power it seems like most of the students just practice wing chun with no annual physical training at all…I mean chi sao n structure only wont win you a fight against me when I'm just faster n stronger…correct me if I'm wrong pls ???

  9. Yea i was wondering about that gym and whats behind you. great videos im catching up while keeping up. got any advice for the resistance of the strike i felt like i managed to do one punch but then my arm felt like it wanted to rip off from the shoulder out. This is a wild guess but are tendons key here. is there any stretches for arms specific to jkd or are there any you reccomend. really though ive through a punch before but this feels like its fighting negetive G forces.

  10. Dan Lok, thanks for the video, ? maybe it could be useful a detailed video about the takedown in 5:20… I am using slow motion to catch the details… specially the direction of your leg (to 12 o' clock of your opponent, or towards his 1 o' clock… I don' use your clock as reference because you are moving, and your clock too)… it looks like an O' Soto Gari… another detail: how to keep the balance during the execution?… where must I put the foot, only in the rear part of the ankle, or even behind the rear part of the knee? Any advantage about this takedown compared with an Aikido takedown…. I am using an Aikido of takedown at the finish because is easier for me, thanks again.

  11. Dan, developing a school or group also helps to transfer the knowledge and culture. I would join but I think you are down in Florida.

    I like the feel of staying loose like you’re doing, then the whole body turns/ throws the strike. If anyone has played ping pong, it is a similar feel when your paddle is about waist high, then you BAM! execute a side overhand slam/smash. You are loose, then you explode, and your hip turns with it. Like a racquetball slam too. Your hip leads, then arm, then fist, rapid unleashing. BAM!

    I like the feel of this shovel hook, sometimes when we chi sau or freestyle on the dummy or heavy bag you can throw them. Also hurts the side and ribs area, oof.

  12. I was apart of the Black Dragon Fighting Society and my Sifu was Lawrence Day. Even in his old age he hit like a truck with poison fist. After he passed the Sifu that took over doubled the rates and I couldn’t afford it. Loved Changwuan! (Longfist)

  13. You sir, are awesome… business guru and a martial artist! Inspiring! I'm a full instructor in JKD/Kali under inosanto and Vunak, as well as training under a Ted wong student (Sifu Mike Gittleson) here in Denver! Please don't ever stop being a bad ass

  14. Another great video I own a copy of Bruce lees book Tao of Jkd and watching these videos helps me understand the movements and techniques from the book a lot more I think I learn things more visually than reading but really appreciate the videos been searching for them for ages so glad I found this channel ?

  15. Hello Dan Lok! I wanted to ask you and it would much appreciated if you would make a “Bruce Lee JKD” demonstration video on how to do the The FRONT FEINT KICK TO THE HOOK KICK. I believe you only see Bruce Lee perform this kick in “Way of the Dragon” when he fights the 2 Karate Masters. He performs this kick on Robert Wall after the other Karate Master says “Is your name Tao Lung?” Bruce performs those 3 kicks (which would be really cool to learn the techniques as well) and on the 4th one is the one I’m talking about… where he knocks Robert Wall. I just got an MMA Heavy Bag for XMAS so I’ve been practicing. I’ve been a huge fan of Bruce Lee since I first saw his movies as a toddler. I’ve done Karate, Boxing, and Wrestling groaning up. I even visited his cemetery in Seattle as well as the Wing Luke Museum in the exhibition of Bruce Lee. I know it’s a lot that wrote to you but I would certainly appreciate a video demonstrating this kick and it would very helpful to others as well. Thank you Dan! “Be Water, My Friend.” ☯️

  16. Can you please do a video on the Jkd rear cross? I am learning to fight southpaw after years of fighting in an orthodox stance and this punch I am struggling with also the rear uppercut

  17. I really enjoy your martial art videos… they are so interesting and energizing. You have been blessed Dan… you are the perfect mentor and I thank God for you everyday. Thank you for giving back.

  18. Mr Dan i would like to thank you for your sharings about jkd. Im using it to excercise myself and later my protection thanks a lot.
    But i have a request please tell me where i will start you have a lot of videos. And i dont know where i am going to start thanks shifu.

  19. What can a women do to defend herself if someone tries to hurt her? Or rob her like at work? I would like to see that demonstrated.

  20. Always informational and learning a great deal from you and the crew.I have found an academy around were I live and going to try and get into it

  21. Thank you so much for posting these videos. These have been exceptionally helpful in not only a physical aspect, but also a mental relief. With all the stresses in life, it's great to let it out through controlled release, and your videos have helped tremendously. It's great to see that you stay humble and continue spread what you love. Thank you again.

  22. I wanna make a Hajime-no-Ippo reference… Does not Razor Ruddock call dis punch "the Smash" and doesn't one "Takeshi Sendo" use dis punch as his special?

  23. yes this is a good technique… you should sell those JKD t-shirts…but the traditional print was the logo was small in the front and big on the back…

  24. Oh man, this has to be one of my favorite punches apart from the jab. See, you put your whole body into it and you strike at such an angle to where you’ll both use precision and force in a beautiful way, and land it all on a knockout spot.
