I watched my favourite Bruce Lee movie today, “Enter the dragon”, after that I decided I needed to check out how my JKD looks like.
I filmed myself training on the heavy bag and some footwork and on-guard.
Quite important to be able see, that way I can pay attention to details that I need work on :
Hand before foot, the way the foot lands, rotation of the leg when kicking..
First thing I think about: this is again and again the same criticism I get from my trainer and also from Ted last year.
Mikael told me recently that it was better which is good, but as I can see on film this is still not perfect.
Another thing, I am always very concerned about my flow, I am so impressed by Micke´s flow , he is so heavy but he has such a facility and fluidity, I always ask him how this is possible ? 25 years or so of training would be one thing, but a natural ability is more the reason he says.
I started training when I was 30 , before that I did not train anything at all, ever. No wonder why my body is taking time to adapt to the new way of life, which is a daily training.
I have soon been training JKD privately with Mikael for 5 years now, even if I have a long way to go , there is a big difference in my ability now.
Nowadays I push myself much more, Mikael says he noticed a huge difference lately, I am very happy about that and I want to feel it even more …. Love Bruce´s line in Enter the Dragon : “DON`T THINK!!!! FEEL….” 🙂
