Basic Striking in JKD

April 30, 20140 Comments

Sifu Mike Gittleson is one of the most talented active instructors in the Ted Wong lineage. Here he demonstrates his skill with the straight lead punch, the straight rear punch, the lead hook punch, and some kicking techniques from Jeet Kune Do.

What to look for:

  • Forward burst off of the pre-loaded rear foot when punching
  • Rotation of the hips and shoulders and ‘snap’ at the end of the punch
  • He finishes the attack in well balanced on-guard stance
  • Crisp footwork on the hook punch and kicks

This is a great example of basic striking tools in JKD.
