To Stick or Not To Stick ?The wrong application of Chi Sao is believing you can sick to your opponent while fighting..Unless your opponent is playing the same game,it's not possible. .While your trying to stick or stay connected to your opponent bridge he will be striking you..You will be at least a half a beat behind him, however having a high level of skill in chi sao can gives you a big advantage. But IMO  to apply it that way is a misunderstanding and a mistake..You should be hitting your opponent not trying to play a Chi Sao game. Use your skills to strike your opponent don't waste anytime..Use your skills you've developed  to assist you to control and interrupt your opponent's movement, but your primary focus should be on striking him. I guess WSL said it best "don't chase the hand".

Doing the One Inch Punch

You first must get into a Horse or T-stance. You should have some flexibility in your joints; as you prepare for the punch.

Shorten the length of a classical deep stance, while keeping a low center of gravity. Throw your strike past the surface of the target area to be punched.

Now there is a lot in that last sentence that goes unsaid. This internal effect will determine the success of the One Inch Punch.

Most will need to have studied an Internal Martial Arts to know how to do an internal punch. There are many internal schools, the largest systems are Xingyi, Tai Chi and Bagua.

Your legs should be rooted, you move with the hips and do not lean forward. The blow should go upward slightly to uproot the opponent so he can be moved backwards otherwise you will not see the results of your strike.

Some will whip their arm forward and the back to get the wave action and increased speed.

You cannot step forward as you punch.

Put your weight into the punch by throwing your hip into it. There is more if you are into Internal Martial Arts, by using your abdominal muscles and/or Qi from the Lower Dan tien. This takes training.

The punch can come the kness, feet and lower depending on your level and type of internal training.

The target area is critical, as well as controlling the power, and damaging effects of a blow beneath the surface, when testing and proving a One Inch Punch, so do not try it without a trained professional Internal Martial Arts Sifu (teacher).

Masters of Internal Martial Arts only need one inch for any kind of strike, since the force is dependant on a Qi wave, not the length of acceleration, as an externalist would require.

If anyone is interested we are hosting a live webinar Q & A webinar with Sifu Phu Ngo right now if you would like to attend.

Tell me what movie these moves were inspired from. Just the first part. Heres a hint, it was from an east meets west movie in 2003.

Favorite Kung Fu/Martial arts movies growing up:
Drunken master, 36th chambers, the street fighter (sonny chiba), shaolin temple, drunken master. Drunken monkey, enter the dragon. Fearless hyena.

We have been putting up quick tips on Instagram if anyone is interested in checking them out.
