Hey family, we have some great things in the workings for you. First up if you haven’t registered for our live webinar this month you can register here. Next, hopefully, by the end of the weekend, we will have a live chat feature up for live support.
We thought since we are working on Enter Shaolin all the time, if we happen to be sitting in front of our computer screens when you’re here, then you can connect with us live.
As you may or may not know, we are currently working on the beginner Ngo Dac Na course. When that course is done it’s going to be extremely detailed.
For now though, we realize many of you have little to no martial arts background. So a new addition to these weekly video training updates is we are going to start giving you weekly lessons to follow, starting this week. 🙂
This week’s lesson is going to be a primer lesson for those of you who are new to Enter Shaolin and for those of you who like a structured lesson plan created for you.
Week 1 Lesson 1: Ngo Dac Na Introduction
If you are at the intermediate or expert level, then you can simply just choose what lessons you like to work on for that week from the training vault and customize your weekly training to your needs. These weekly lesson plans are for the person who has limited to no martial arts experience.
For those of you who are intermediate to advanced students, once we are finished with our beginner course, we will be working on intermediate and advance courses sometime in the future.
This week we are going to focus on how you should be starting your training at. This week is going to be pretty simple, we want you to familiarize yourself with these three forms. If you already started memorizing them, then you are ahead of the game!
If not, that’s okay, I am not going to ask you to this week. In fact, I would prefer if you don’t, just watch them and pay attention to the “way” that Sifu moves his body. Pay close attention to how his wrists turn and how his posture is. We will start working on memorizing them next week. 🙂
- The Sil Lum Tao Form (First Form In The Wing Chun)
- The First Third Of Tai Chi (Our Yang Style Tai Chi has 3 sections and is considered the long-form)
- The 10 Basic Qigong Exercises (This is the push-ups and sit-ups for developing your Qi)
The reason why we want you to learn these specifically, is because for the next year most of your training is going to refer back to these forms. The forms will also help you develop your muscle memory. You will also be able to apply our Ngo Dac Na principles through the techniques within these styles of martial arts.
Understanding The C.O.P. Principle
This is the most important principle of Ngo Dac Na, it is this principle that is the foundation for everything we do. So as you can imagine it’s pretty important that you understand this principle.
C.O.R.E. Training (Combat, Offense, Reflex and Energy)
Each week I am going to give you 1 c.o.r.e. training exercise to work on. This week’s focus will be your fist. More specifically developing forward energy through the wrist. Practice this at least 3 times this next week.
Exercise Of The Week
Every week we are going to give you one exercise to focus on. The amount you do doesn’t matter, however, the goal is to constantly improve your results over time. Take it slow and move at your own pace. Just make sure you push yourself as much as you can. Ideally, you should do this every day.
It should only take you a couple of minutes each day to get this exercise done. There’s no ‘I don’t have enough time’ excuses.
If you are feeling froggy, you can do them for 5 minutes again. The numbers don’t matter as much as being consistent does. Do what you can do. Just make sure to do them every day.
RECAP: This week, focus on watching the forms and doing the C.O.R.E. Training 3x’s this week and the Exercise every day…
*If you have the time, feel free to start working on memorizing the forms. Take it bit by bit.
