How To Do Jeet Kune Do
How To Do Jeet Kune Do
Laurence Sandum of the Black Belt Martial Arts Academy teaches the viewer a variety of trapping techniques and shows different ways to integrate them together for a smoother flow, moving from kicking, to boxing and into trapping and grappling. Several Techniques are shown from three different styles including Wing Chun, Jeet Kune Do and Jun Fan.
We're going to give an introduction now to some Jun Fan and Jeet Kune Do trapping on the pads. With the Jun Fan and Jeet Kune Do, we can also relate and integrate some of Bruce Lee's Jun Fan trapping and some of the wing chun trapping elements onto the pads as well so you'll see a lot of boxing and kickboxing techniques and also some wing chun/Jun Fan trapping Kung Fu trapping onto the pads. Graham's going to feed me a jab.
As he feeds me, I'm going to box and slip, and I'm going to jab into this pad which is going to represent his head. As he feeds me again, this could just be having a slip or as he goes to hit me this could be in a bit deeper and I could be trapping. Then from here I'm going to pull his hand down and pull and back fist which we call Lop Sao Gwa Choy.
Lop Sao is "pulling hand" and Gwa Choy is "Back fist" and as I go to back fist Graham, he's going to push me past center line. As my hand's moving past center line, I'm going to make a Bong Sao shape, insert this hand here, Lop Sao Gwa Choy again and then I'm going to move into a boxing flow with a boxing right cross, a left hook, a right cross then Graham moves back and I step and now tek. So as Graham feeds me, so you can see that some of the use of the pads is not so common to the standard kickboxing and standard boxing.
So, Graham feeds me and I slip and jab simultaneously. I can do parrying - Pak Sao in here, or into the arm here if I'm moving in deeper for a trap. So If Graham feeds me, I'm moving in here then I'm not, and back fist/Lop Sao, and back fist/Lop Sao Gwa Choy pushes me past.
I'll make this shape call boang sao sometimes called a "wing arm", I put this hand in. I pull then a backfist, I throw a cross, a hook, a cross, a step and kick. The Jun Fan Martial Arts encompasses all ranges when standing - long range to medium range, into trapping and into grappling.
So we're out of distance now, even out of kicking range now. Can't kick Graham from there. So I could bridge the gap, I could close the distance with what's called a low now tek with a slidding step, and now tek, or I can hop in with a jump tek.
For safety, I go just above his knee but in reality, I'd be going for his knee. So I close the distance and then from here I go into perhaps a punch. Sticking just to the striking arts like Boxing and kickboxing, I'd have to be drawing a gap or looking for a space with my hands whereas in Jun Fan/Jeet Kune Do rules, I have the option to trap, so from here, I have the option to trap on this arm, it's called Pak Sao and if he was to push me past center line, again, like that now see we're going into the trapping motion and this is a similar technique which we just showed onto the pads.
From here, as I pulled, then back fist, then move back into my boxing flow and finish with a low kick like we did on the pads. Let's show that once more, so I'm in kickboxing range. I enter with a kickboxing technique but for the jun fan/jeet kune do which is aimed more for street self defense, it'll be on the low line to the groin, inner thigh or the knee.
I'm now into punching range; I punch him. I could stay into my punching but now, I'm moving into wing chun trapping. I trap and hit.
He pushes me past center line, I pull him, back fist, keeping the pressure on. I could stay into my trapping but I'm just going to show that I could move back into boxing flow and back into kickboxing mode if you wanted. So, we just had there an example of some Jun Fan Kickboxing and trapping using the pads and also moving from kickboxing into trapping range back to boxing again without the pads. .
