Great class last night at Essex Fighting Arts. Some intensity on the pads, but need to work on the various pad drills as the pad man is equally as important to help bring the best technique from the person hitting them. Great to get back into hubud and it can screw with your head with all the hand eye coordination etc... But like anything, practice makes perfect and we will be revisiting this again to hone these skills. One for One is relatively easy, but when you add in the arm breaks, wrist strikes, switches things can get a bit fuzzy. Taking you on to One Four One played with some of your heads but you were getting there in the end. And Double Twos was doing well two. As I said last night, Wing Chun blends in nicely with panantukan especially hubud and you can see elements that are very similar. But I want to get you to the stage that you can jam with hubud and mix and match between variations, but this will come with time and training. Have a great weekend and see you next week. Ouss...
