Hey Family how has your week been so far? As you may already know we have the Ngo Dac Na 101 course for you, however it only goes to lesson 15 that’s because the software we where using to create those lessons no longer functions correctly with our site. 🙁
Unfortunately one of the down sides to creating online sites is technology is constantly changing. We do have a solution to fix the problem but it’s taking some time to implement it.
In the meantime I want to talk to you about what you should be doing. People make the decision to learn martial arts for different reasons. For some folks it’s about their health for others it’s about feeling confident and empowered. Here at Enter Shaolin we think all those reasons are great reasons to train.
With that said:
If you are more interested in healing your body and getting healthier in general I would focus more on Tai Chi, Qigong, Neigong & the 40 breaths exercises.
If you are more interested in combat then focus more on Wing Chun & Ground Fighting
If you are already a practicing martial artist, then focus more on our Ngo Dac Na principle & techniques to enhance what you already do.
Chin Na is very universal and is a supplement martial art system to all martial art systems. This system teaches you how to lock, anti grapple, attack pressure points , divide muscles etc…
Ultimately all martial arts can be mixed and matched to your individual personality and even body type.
If you are studying martial arts for self defense understand that there are 3 basic ranges in a fight and most likely at some point or another you will be in all three.
- Kicking Range
- Punching Range
- Clinching to ground range
You can end a fight in all three ranges depending on your skill level. For example, you may choose to attack with your longest weapons (your legs), then your opponent may step off to the side and you close the distance to punching range or your opponent counters you and crashes in on you, so you end up having to go to the ground… Then go for a lock or dirty (lethal) attack like eye gauging, groin pulling (basically attacking soft targets).
You have to have patience when you study martial arts. It simply takes time for your mind to memorize forms and condition your body. All the systems we teach work synergistically together. In other words, everything we teach you here works together to help you protect yourself in all the fighting ranges.
If you are ready to start pushing your body and you want to tone up, build muscle and tendon strength, then focus a lot of your time in our C.O.R.E. training section where you will find a lot of exercises to enhance your physique.
We will let you know once the new Ngo Dac Na 101 beginner course is ready. Again sorry for the delay and we are working as quickly as we can to get caught up and move forward.
In the mean time, pick 4 videos to work on each week, it can be custom to you or just follow along with these weekly updates. 😉
