      yeah, wing chun blocks are not about meeting force head on. When I took wing chun the first thing my sifu taught was shifting. After that he taught shifting while doing the blocks, so you dont take punches and kicks head on.

        Japanese is a hard language to learn. But I wouldnt mine learning it.

          Oh, and when you do the bong say make sure the palm of your hand is up to your opponent's chin.

            So, centerline and parries. Like any striking art.

            Okay.

            Freddy - actually, japanese is simple in grammar IIRC. And EASY to pronounce, all vowel-consonant pairs. Ba, Ka, for example :D

              That's not really true. It all depends on what you're using the bong sau for.

              On a low bong your hand wouldn't be up to the chin.

                Japanese may be simple in grammar, but it can be hard to understand at times because of the lack of a subject. While the basic Japanese they teach you in college may be easy to understand it's different, once you come over here.

                Sorry, I don't have anything to add about the original discussion. However, I think most locks will fail unless you get the proper set up.

                  Nihilanthic and Ippatsu182 I've got to work on my Japanese then. I wouldnt mind learning to speak another language. I wonder how hard it is to read in Japanese.

                    Honestly, you should spend more time learning how to speak than to read, unless you just want to read manga. I spent 3 years in college memorizing about 1,200 kanji. It helps me read signs and stuff over here, but it hasn't been that helpful. It's much better to improve your speaking and listening skills.

                    If you are interested in learning Japanese, you should try taking a course at your local community college. If you can't do that, I recommend you buy "Japanese for Busy People" and be sure to get the CDs, although they're a bit pricey. Sorry for the off topic post.
