FIST LOGIC, VIDEO

APPLYING THE IDEA TO THE MOVEMENT.

 

All of the videos I do are deliberately a little disconnected and vague, we learn very little by being spoon-fed, without struggle we attach no importance.

 

Hi Guys.

A great deal of our training, especially now while in lockdown is by its very nature imaginary.

This is not the best situation but it is not as bad or as ineffective as we may think.

Everything we do in life begins with us imagining the action we intend to perform and then following through physically.

Mostly this happens subconsciously, but we can train it to work more efficiently.

As I have recounted to you guys before, back in 1996 when I had my big operation and ended up in a half body cast for 3 months and was not usually upright, my teacher, Jim Fung Chuen Keung, recommended that even though I was almost glued to the couch I engage in imagining myself standing up and doing the Form.

I was instructed that if I lost the flow of my thinking, forgot where I was at or just became a bit vague to quit and restart.

This was not an easy task.

It was a long time before I could achieve full completion of the Form without distractions or disconnections, I was never able to do it straight of the bat, and it was not a forgone conclusion that I would succeed in my attempt, there were many times I did not.

All up I was away from training for more than 6 months.

When I returned I fully expected to be significantly behind my old training partners but much to my joy and surprise that was not the case, in some instances, I had moved ahead.

 

There is no reason that we cannot all experience this same phenomenon when we exit lockdown.

 

All of the videos I do are deliberately a little disconnected and vague, we learn very little by being spoon-fed, without struggle we attach no importance.

 

 

All of the Forms are HERE, plus a good chat about what they are and what we should look for.

There is a video of a much younger slimmer me doing the S.L.T.Form HERE, following the moves is advantageous, following the thinking is imperative.

Treat these video classes like a normal class, if it is not clear what I am getting at ask the question.

 

STAY FROSTY.

WASH YOUR HANDS.
