That is Hawkings Cheung, typically known for his Wing Chun, but also a Chen Taiji player.
Wonder where the ground work is Kelly? It was actually under one of his students I learned some of the Fukien Dog Boxing BTW.
That was outstanding!
I really liked that. I saw many elements of freestyle wrestling. The pummeling was my favorite, very greco like.
ultimate comabat tai chi!
i only knew hawkins from wing chun, but that was dope.
Thanks. That was a great clip. I don't know how many internal folks want to do that for 20 minutes or more. You get real tired picking yourself off the mat - or ground in this case.
God forbid, you might learn some pummeling skills like Backarcher mentions...err but that wouldn't be internal martial arts from China now would it???
Uncle Tim has dumped me like that too. But he wasn't as nice as the Sifu in the clip and I wasn't sporting a neato pair of bellbottoms like the person being thrown. Basically, it was uglier when he mixed it up with me on so many different levels...
That is an awesome clip. I love that stuff. Tim and I have gone around like that too many hours to remember (thank God for mats)- but I do have an acurate count of how many of those hundreds of throws were mine: exactly eight.
Seven of those Tim countered on the way down and I hit the ground harder than he had.
Only once did I get a clean throw without suffering a counter (that was due to someone calling Tim's name for a question just as I moved in to a throw).
sigh... and to think, over the last two years I've turned into a chubby slug.
"Only once did I get a clean throw without suffering a counter (that was due to someone calling Tim's name for a question just as I moved in to a throw)."
And it was at that moment I knew you were ready to leave the temple.
and also the moment I knew that correspondence course on ventriloquism was time well spent.
I enjoyed it as well.
Jake that is interesting. I have not heard of him before this clip. He seems pretty clean. It is cool that they left in the bit where his student got him off a bit.
