In this video sifu Siukee Wan from Shaolin Ancestors Wing Chun demonstrates how the use of "spiral energy" can fundamentally change the way in which you redirect force and connect with your partner's centre of balance, a concept useful to all martial artists irrespective of style. #WingChun #SpiralEnergy #DeflectingPunches https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqZRDvC8IH0&lc=Ugx30Q6shXNiVnfLrMt4AaABAg .
Dunken Francis sensei demonstrates and explains in detail the 15 movement "Kagami" (mirror) kata for the jo, which allows students to train both left and right sided as well as exploring fundamentals of posture and tai-sabaki (body movement). #15movementJoKata #AikidoJoKata #KagamiJoKata https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQkEPzqDSLY .
Tony Schaufelberger sensei demonstrates the infamous "One-legged balance trick" which has been around hundreds if not thousands of years. He breaks down the biomechanics that make this possible and why it's such an important concept for all martial artists to understand. A little health & safety note: if you find you cannot stand on one leg for more than 20 seconds, go see a doctor as it can sometime be an indicator of a higher risk of stroke. #oneleggedbalance #MartialArtsBalance #correctposture https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFIfkKCVrCE .
Tony Schaufelberger sensei describes and demonstrates the incredibly subtle processes at work whereby our own posture and alignment can allow us to connect and redirect the force of our partner. He explains how this works and takes us through some fascinating drills we can use to explore the subject. #InternaMartialArts #Aiki #RedirectingForce https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQ5hVHV9I08 .
Tony Shaufelberger sensei demonstrates how to get in touch with our "reptilian mind" and learn to rely more on what we feel through our body rather than "over thinking" things. Some great biomechanical and structural tips towards the end of the clip too. #ReptilianMind #PeripersonalSpacePPS #CorrectPosture
