Fun and Flirting on the Kung-Fu Training Floor -- Teaching My Wife an Ancient Chinese Secret
September 18, 2017
My wife, Nancy is my videographer. She is usually behind the camera as we record lessons for DVDs and the website.
Yesterday, as we were recording some tuishou instruction about using tai chi "energies" and methods to do takedowns, we pulled her out in front of the camera to learn how to do a takedown using "shoulder" energy.
I enjoy teasing Nancy. She has a great sense of humor. One of the reasons I started in martial arts was because I thought it was fun. I still do, so I often include outtakes and jokes in my DVDs and video for the website.
This is a short video showing Nancy learning a good technique. The Chinese term for the technique is at the end.
You’ve met your match, and can be kept under control.
Now you’re in the same situation I am with a greater power, my wife.
Sorry you had to be taught who is really in charge.
I advise you to do as I do. NEVER explain this to your students!
Need more martial arts advice? Just call me.
