Training Notes

Rest assured, I have still been training. However, I have not had much time to post about it.

This past Sunday, I went back to my first Wing Chun gathering in a long time. It was great, and I learned a lot about where I should aim my focus when it comes to Chi Sao. One big thing is learning to “drop the bridge.” This is kind of hard to explain using just words, so all I will say is that it’s a technique where you keep bringing your opponent’s hands down.

Another thing I realized is I have a tendency to focus on one hand or the other while leaving the other hand “dead.” I need to work on that too. The only way to get there is practice.

Other than that, I am about halfway through the second month of 10 Minute Trainer. I am anxious to move on to 22 Minutes Hard Corps because I have not done it yet, and it looks like it really will push things to the next level. Well, I will be able to find that out in about 2-3 weeks! In the meantime, I will keep doing my forms, weekly challenges, 10 Minute Trainer, and of course eating right.


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!
