These training exercises must be incorporated in our weekly practices. Bunkai, simulated sparring, sparring work, and self defense are what complement a system and a style, not only physical conditioning, Katas, and Kihons.


It is great to study Chinthya, as a realistic martial artist, in which her blocking, movement, dodging, and punching style is similar to Karate, and kicking is similar to Taekwondo. She uses a great combination, but most importantly, it is the way she applies her skills. Great martial artist.

The 5 effects of Striking- No weapons involved:

1. They can cut.
2. They get dizzy to follow up with attacks.
3. They distract to follow up with attacks.
4. They knock down.
5. They knock out.

Great experience yesterday, training for the first time at a Shaolin School. I learned a lot, but most importantly, I could understand better how to work for a better balance while kicking, how to understand distance management whith strikes better, and how work to have a better flexibilty.

I also liked the fitness part a lot, it was a good training session.

Kosen Dojo


Many people tui shou without first realising “song”. The burden of the stiffness and tension in their own bodies slow them down and make them unable to respond quickly. Train “song” until you are able to respond and neutralise at will and nobody can “hit” you. Training the form is solo practice. Tuishou is partner training. The same “song” must be applied, not strength. It is not fighting. The standard and level of “song” is within your own body.
