      Time for some more fun! Thank you! I will start with an easy one : the back bends too much, causing the posture to collapse.

      What else is wrong?

        Great video! The shoulders are up, the foot and the hand are too close to each other, the back is bent, also it is not clear why the stance is lowered. Thank you!!
        Engage and maintain joyful practice!

        May all of you get the best benefits from what you do.

          The leading feint hand should strike out slightly earlier then the kicking leg .
          The rear hand should be a dragon palm instead of a dragon hand form : i'm not sure about this ...need to consult Sifu Leo
          Variation ( kungfu is alive ) : the rear hand may be higher near elbow of leading hand as part of feint & for protection mid body or lower to protect the groin

            Dear Sifu Leo,

            I have some questions, if I may; where should the lead feint hand be aiming at? Is the kick aimed at the stomach of the opponent?

            Looking forward to the answers

              Hello again!

              Now that all mistakes have been found, here is the solution:



              As seen in many students (initially) I rounded my back and did not have my standing leg straight in the mistake video.

              I use to have the minister hand (rear hand) in dragon hand form below the leading arm (to protect the armpit), as can (not so easily) be seen in this picture:

              yellowbird.jpg

              Me using the dragon hand form could also be personal style or the dragon spirit taking over.

              For application this can of course be varied with an open hand to cover the opponent, like in the following picture of my students:

              DSC00588klein.jpg

              And, yes, the feint hand should start slightly earlier than the kick. "First ___, then ___!" says the secret.

              Best wishes,

              Leo

                Hi Siheng,

                Thanks for asking the questions, so everyone can benefit.

                The feint hand should aim at the eyes, or at least the face of the opponent.

                The kick is an organ-seeking kick. Therefore, the target would be the groin.

                The compassionate version would target at the belly, dantian or solar-plexus. The same counts, if the spacing requires, like when the opponent is moving back during my kick. I would use my toes instead of the instep of the foot then.

                Best wishes,

                Leo
