Gung Fu Skill Development

There are two aspects to a technical drill for fighting. The first and most obvious, is the PARTICULAR skill that we are trying to develop, such as the straight lead punch. The second, often overlooked, are the UNDERLYING movements which will help us develop as fighters, such as footwork and head movement. It is easy to become complacent and place too much emphasis on the first thing and allow the skills developed by the second thing to slip.

No matter what you are working on, always try to develop the SPECIFIC as well as the GENERAL skills.
