    Default White Belt punch counter technique

    Since I haven't seen any white belts in a video...thought I'd share this old video of a white belt doing a two punch counter technique for fun...

    Nice clip! Isn't that on the Chow/Chun website? Are you one of the 2 gentlemen in the vid.?

    Looks like it'd hurt, as any good Kempo technique does!

    Dianhsuhe, thanks...you are very perceptive...and yes, I am the one performing the technique...(I think today I'd do a different technique than that one when called on to do one...)

    Sure looks good for a white belt. I'd wish they all moved like that in that stage of training!
    The technique looks like a combination of Sword of Destruction and Five Swords. Well done!
    Do you also have some recent vids of yourself???? I would really like to see how you have grown during all those years!
    My oldest video was when I was a green belt, I wish I had one of my white belt period!

    Full Salute,

    Someone beat me to it, you moved like you had previous training? I know I didn’t move like that as a white belt. I was very nervous and awkward at that stage of my training. Cool clip thanks for sharing that part of your training.

    I gotta get a video camera.
    A black belt covers 2" of your butt. Covering the rest is soley up to you

    Hey great job! I agree with the others, it would be interesting to see your progress since then.

    Pretty sharp there my man. Looking good. I was thinking more along the line of Unfirling Crane and Five Swords. What is the technique called?

    Good job! Crisp, fast but not rushed, power and structure...

    I think the others are right- you have done this before.

    I was thinking the same thing but didn't want to say it out loud....some trainign in the past maybe? I'm pretty sure I would have hit myself doing such a complex set of moves as a white belt

    I’m honestly surprised that anyone actually saw the video and responded. Thanks a lot for the kind comments. Let’s see if I can answer your questions:

    Unfortunately, there are no recent videos of me doing any techniques (we hope to have some soon – probably when we have our next belt promotion). I did take Chinese KeNpo as a twelve year old for a couple of years and was actually really good (if you don’t mind me saying) back then, especially with my kicks. Since that was so long ago and what we (Chinese KeMpo) do (up close and inside) is different, I don’t think my previous training as a kid makes any difference. I’m very fortunate because I get to train with advanced color belts.

    There is no name for this technique. We do not have names or use numbers for any of our techniques. This was a technique shown to me for doing a three punch (right, left, uppercut) counter that I thought would be applicable for a two punch counter, which I used in my first belt promotion (white to orange – skipping over yellow) two years ago. (I am approaching seven years in Chinese Kempo as a student of Master Bill Chun Jr.) We are told how many techniques of which kind we have to do whenever we have a promotion, but we are not told which ones specifically we have to do. (No one else does this technique, except for me.)

    Today, I would probably block the punches the same but move closer in my left cat stance with an open left hand strike to the midsection – flowing up with an open left hand palm strike to the chin/jaw – followed by a right hand closed fist strike (right cross) with the same elbow following (across my body) to the attacker’s jaw/face – flowing and coming back in a loop (left to right) with a right hand closed fist “hammer” (going the other way across my body) down on attacker’s head, collarbone, or whatever is available to damage. Then, look to see what position attacker is in…then finish him off...

    Thanks again for the replies and kind comments...

    Great stuff Mr Young! There is simply nothing like "old-school" training eh?

    Do you just work on principles based off the counter? 2 or 3 punch for example? Also, do you guys use hansuki?

    Sure it nice to get the Chow-Chun perspective on here! Seven years is a good bit...Especially when you are training with the head of the system.

    Keep us posted on the video work! I have watched all the videos on the main web-site, but it has been awhile...Was your technique on there?

    Have a great weekend Mr Young!

    Dianhsuhe, I'm not quite sure what your question is...sorry for my ignorance...can you rephrase it?

    ...in simple terms, we work on our "basics" (horse stance, cat stance, blocks, punches, strikes, forms, etc.) to help us in our movement, which influences our self-defense techniques. I've picked up different technique applications from the forms that we have to learn and know.

    I have never seen the Hansuki (version as passed down from Grandmaster Chun Sr)...In the Chow/Chun System, only selected black belts are shown the Hansuki...ask me that question, in a few years to see if I'm selected...

    ...yes, my technique is on the website...

    You have a great weekend too.

    Johnny

    What am I doing wrong?

    When I go to the youtube site I only get about a 6 second clip.

    Sure would like to see it all.

    Marvin, the technique is only six seconds long...sorry...wait a second...if you go to http://www.chinesekempo.org/teq.htm you can see a bunch of techniques of other advanced color belts, including a couple of Master Bill Chun Jr. Maybe this will make up for my short technique...
