Here’s a video with some highlights of my Sanshou class. I’m only showing the fun parts here (fun for me, that is), meaning: when I land techniques on my students. They land shots on me too obviously but those don’t make for such great footage in my humble opinion… :-)
The whole idea is to give you a sample of the way we train, particularly the sparring. One caveat about that: the contact level is pretty low. I vastly outweigh most of my students so I have to pull my punches to avoid injuring them. I mostly work on my timing and other things but rarely cut loose with power. After all, they’re my students first and only my sparring partners second.
I also very often limit the sparring to 50% power, 50% speed. That way students are more fre to experiment without the fear of getting knocked out. Full-on sparring is usually limited to those students who compete or those who’ve been training for a few years. anyway, I hope you enjoy the video.
UPDATE: Something seems to have gone wrong during the upload. There’s loads of artifacts and noise on the video. I’ll upload a better quality version later today.
UPDATE 2: I just uploaded a 720P version of the video and the quality seems to be better now. There are still artifacts but it’s a bit better now. I don’t know what the issue is because I’m uploading in the same format as my previous videos. Weird…
