Wudang Combat Training - Sanda

Wudang Combat Training – Sanda

Traditional Chinese Boxing

The Chinese boxing or Sanda is a technique that combines hand and foot coordination to fight back in a fight.

The Rythm

Rhythm plays an important role in Sanda: if you train the rhythm, you can apply hits and combinations faster, while at the same time you become aware of the opponent’s rhythm. In the Sanda training, you learn how to overwhelm your opponent, the attacks come from as many sides as possible at the same time, a spontaneous change of direction is possible at any time. The traditional Sanda steps are designed so that the opponent can be moved or dodged in any direction.

Continuous Energy Flow

The Sanda Fighting Position is offensive and defensive at the same time, there is no second break and the intention should be strengthened and clearly enforced. Taiji helps enormously in Sanda training to gain control and stay calm in the body center. In the Sanda, everything moves so fast that observers often can not keep up visually, the energy flow of the movements should never be interrupted in order to constantly build up the offensive pressure and thus to enforce one’s own rhythm.

Importance of Sanda

Wie gut die Jibengong (Kung Fu Basis)- und Taiji-Prinzipien in Sanda eingesetzt werden können, ist von der Erfahrung des Schülers abhängig. Sanda kommt in der Regel nach oder während dem Grundtraining und hat eine etwas höhere Lernkurve für fortgeschrittene Schüler. Sanda ist die praktikabelste Form der Selbstverteidigung, um die Selbstkontrolle und den eigenen Erfahrungswert auf die Probe zu stellen.
