CRYSTALIZATION OF THE PAST MASTERS
Part 2 -- From Solo Patterns to Sequence Sparring
The class practices basic combat skills for moving in to attack
Many kungfu practitioners today cannot use their kungfu patterns for free combat. Either they only perform kungfu patterns in solo demonstration or employ other martial art techniques, especially Kick-Boxing, for sparring.
We are proud that our students, including fresh beginners, at the Introductory Shaolin Kungfu Course held in Japan from 16th to 18th December 2007 overcame this big problem. On the first day of the course, they spent much time training the basics. On the second day they learned various skills and techniques to bridge the gap from solo pattern practice to free sparring. This second part of the video series records some of these lessons.
This is the second part of the Japan Introductory Shaolin Kungfu Course video series called "Crystallization of the Past Masters". This part is divided into the following four sections:
The Four Parts of the series, Crystallization of the Past Masters, are as follows:
- The Basics as Trained by Past Masters
- From Solo Patterns to Sequence Sparring
- Applying Shaolin Skills and Techniques for Combat
- Experiencing the Wonderful Benefits of Shaolin Training
We would like to express our thanks to Sifu Emiko Hsuen and Sifu Yumi Honjo from Shaolin Wahnam Japan for recording these videos
