Wing Chun Kicks Training Journal July 13 2016

This was a pretty standard day: Sil Lum Tao and Biu Jee once each, then Chum Kiu four times. I did 100 punches at the end of each form. Aside from that, I did 400 extra punches: 100 at chest head, 100 at head height, 100 with pivoting, and 100 with stepping.

The difference today was that I worked in some kicks. My intention was to do 50 front kicks and 50 side kicks between both legs. Then I added in something called “Bong-Jut Gerk,” with the intention of doing 25 per leg.

For some reason, I wound up doing 50 front kicks, but then I did 60 side kicks and 60 Bong-Jut Gerks. Why? I don’t know. And you know something? I think I could use more. It would have been pretty easy to work in more too, so maybe next time I will aim for 100 of each kind of kick.

Well, I have several days of training to catch up on here, so expect another entry shortly!


About Steve Grogan

I am 40 years old, divorced, and a father of four kids. I am a practitioner of a self-defense system called wing chun kung fu. My other hobbies include writing, playing guitar, reading, watching movies, and listening to music. Recently I have gotten back into fitness, and this time I am DETERMINED to get the washboard abs...whether my metabolism will cooperate with me or not! The purpose of this blog is to write not only about my hobbies, but also about whatever crosses my mind, whether it is something I don't understand or something that aggravates me. So join me as I indulge my tendency to think too much about topics that don't usually cross anyone else's mind!
