  1. You told us about bruce lee's speed punching exercise "punching paper".
    Now what about his speed kicking training.

  2. I have a question.
    You're teaching here is that we must not trap in the "very late" scenario whereas Bruce in his book The Tao of Jeet Kune Do states that we should parry at the "last" moment of impact. It somehow contradicts your teachings in the video. Is the "very last" scenario only bad in trapping but good in parrying?

  3. First off how would you prefer to be addressed?
    Second very nice drill. I'm a beginner at wing chun but I know a lil history and that jeet kune do is a lil of the same. My question when facing an opponent or enemy, what do you look at on the opponent to what type of offense they will throw. I hope I worded it right. Thanks for the knowledge.

  4. Tough to use first month students as demonstration assistants.
    I see the point if the target audience is beginners as you do not want to discourage.

  5. Love it my Brotha. m/ greetings from Long Beach, CALIFORNIA. Where JKD also Lives;)
    Brothers in Martial Artsm/
    Sifu Bruce Would be proud:)

  6. Trapping has been somewhat of a roadblock for me in my own training. I don't know what it was but somehow you made it a lot more clear to me. Thank you.

  7. Good focus on the pak into the opponent, not simply down or sideways. You can really feel the difference. In time the students will loosen up their movements, remind Jason not to lean forward to punch but move his whole body forward while punching (keeping good posture).

    I like your vids, good for wing chun folks and jkd, you have clear practical instruction. If you are up in Michigan some time I'd like to train or practice with you, I am working on blending other things into my wing chun and want to keep learning.

  8. Years ago, a guy attacked me. He flailed his arms like a windmill. He caught me off guard. My instinct was to do a front kick to chest, which knocked him down. He got back up and bum-rushed me. Side-stepped him and smashed him into the wall. That ended it. But how does WC deal with someone who fights, as many do, in such an irrational way?

  9. Thank you for the video. How expensive is a wing chung Dummy? Also, how does someone develop their chi energy? Thank you and God bless.

  10. Sifu Dan, sir, I want to take this time and commend you on all of your videos. Most instructors get other well trained students in their videos to make it look really good., to make money. On the other hand, you get average students to assist you , and you explain how that we are humans with bad habits, therefore we do not do everything perfect. So, I like the fact that you really train realistically. In all of your videos, you show the good, the bad, and the ugly. I really like it.

  11. Dan Lok. Before I make this comment, for what it's worth. I have watched a lot of your video. You are an excellent student of Bruce Lee, and you are also an excellent sifu.

  12. I really enjoy your JkD / Wing Chun videos.
    Thank you, i'm a big fan of Bruce Lee and i've wanted to learn Chinese martial arts for a long time and now i'm able to with your videos.

  13. Pak Sao works much better when you close the distance, then you can push your oponent's arm to his body, so he can't use it. And another important thing is not to slap, like you would, I dunno, slap a bitch, but make it more of a strike with hard parts of your palm. Because when you're being attacked and try to slap the hard punch and accidentally hit the fist or wrist with your fingers, you can hurt yourself.

  14. Hey that was cool,finally I get to see the exercise with practice partner versus the wooden tree trunk with boards sticking out,thanks some thing to work on.

  15. Dan, Pak Sau is taught to be friendly and not kill your opponent , Now the real deal (forbidden to be taught openly) is:- soon as an arm comes close you grab like an eagle’s claw slip down to the wrist and dig your fingers into the opponent’s wrist tendon area, drag or shove to dislocate the opponent shoulder at the same time the other hand can do all sorts of damages. But you need to train short (inch) strength to do the damages. I am pretty boiled people criticising traditional martial art. They know too little.

  16. Hello, Dan
    You make great videos and explanation, thank you for that.
    I am Ving Tsun practitioner and I think that the first situation(in beginning of the vid) is better to use Jut Sao. With Jut Sao you have better control and the opponent dont have change to give you punch because you are cutting his way.
    In the drill my concerns are that you do the correct Pak Sao(Slaping hand is first and punch is second ) but in the beginning of the vid is opposite and for me this drill is not for the move of the beginning.

    Thank you again for the explanations and videos, You are awesome!

  17. Dan Lok,
    You are very adept at discovering innovative
    solutions to problems of many kinds, and it is,
    without a doubt, something that sets you apart,
    simultaneously as Student and Teacher.
    Be blessed and be whole and be whole, to be well.

    Very Respectfully,
    A Fellow Student

  18. Thank you for reminding me about pak sao. It was long time ago. I stopped training because my teachers where very soft, no discipline. So after 2 years of training it went boring.

  19. There's a pak u can do that's kinda a whipping hand that make a bit more power but mostly I just do it way you are in the video.
