Want to add to your striking arsenal? Although most self defense employ boxing and punching moves, kung fu animal techniques are overlooked. In this weeks Evolving Martial Artist video, I am introducing four unique techniques for extreme self defense. These effective fighting moves are concealed behind our TanDao Crane Form.
I realize that mma and modern fighters – focused on sport and steet combat – express disdain for traditional kung fu, karate and tae kwon do form or kata training. Fancy techniques that don’t work. Why bother?
This idea is not new. The traditional kung fu verse: “flowery hands and embroidered feet” – is a more poetic way of calling form techniques bullshit.
Things are not what they seem – so it seems.
Yeah, my crane form employs artistic movements – that is the Art. But I also show brutally realistic fighting – that’s the Science. The real stuff. Unfortunately, due to the eastern convention of secrecy, the martial science – the mma kick ass component – got diluted behind the stylized art over time.
Evolving Martial Artists get the edge by discovering realistic self defense techniques hidden behind fancy forms.
