Progress can be a pain!


You guys have motivated me tremendously.  I appreciate all of you, especially those of you that took time to share your insights and encouragement. 

I've been practicing on average for 5 hours a day for nearly a month now and in the last two weeks alone I feel I have progressed a great deal further because of your support. 

I've been trying to record my progress for you guys but my ability to record and edit is limited with my current set up. Here's a link to my YouTube channel https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCy2BWcL8UYU7_07sdXqrePA I just uploaded two very short videos of my progress as of today, dual wielding and single nunchaku. 

Thanks for being here all !

20 years had passed , this passion but a memory. I've spent hundreds of hours since the early fall of 2018 rekindling this fire.

  1. Owch dude! That’s a sick mark. But I believe that even hitting yourself is an essential part of training and learning – you definitely know what not to do, but only when you hit yourself do you completely understand what not to do and why, or how to do it instead. Some of the most valuable things I’ve learned (obviously safety-wise) are only found out this way, (un)fortunately!
    5 hours a day is crazy dude! I tout at least 5 minutes a day to my students, and I personally on average clock in 5min to an hour a day. But that is absolutely wild my man. You will see progress like nothing before! I’m excited personally to see how quickly it happens!
    You are what I would call way beyond advanced at handrolls and spatial awareness of nunchucks. You definitely display a feeling for the chucks as a true extension of your body. I have total faith that you could do everything blindfolded without a change (although of course it would feel different and somewhat scary no doubt, don’t be reckless haha). I absolutely believe it.
    Your throws are wonderful and fluid, and your movement is meeting the tempo. At this point, I’d say you are ready to take nunchaku in literally any direction you want. You display a good ability for flow, rigidity, straight-up tricks, dual-wielding, aerials, and most importantly: POTENTIAL.
    I’m not saying that you mastered the basics. It’s more than that. I’m saying you’re treading into advanced territory at this point, and your foundation is rock solid. Steel solid, in fact. What I recommend is to hunger for more. I was stuck at a single place for a decade because I didn’t look up from where I was, I thought I about learned it all, save for a few stylistic things.
    Dang, I wrote a ton already, but it’s mostly because the rate of your progression is freaking awesome. I’m having some coulda/woulda/shoulda thoughts right now, seeing how far you’ve come already.
    I’ll put a couple of great chuckers out there for you to reference if you’d like. You already know some/all of them, but they have starkly different styles and I think you’ll find your niche (and there’s niches that aren’t listed, by the way).
    Ken Hill, Jason Jadud, Matt Emig, Stephane Oberle, Gabriel Ford.
    They all have similarities and differences, but it’s purely for reference. They’re all crazy pros, but if one element of anything they do stick out to you, pursue that. I only picked them off the top of my head, but there are many more.
    However, the best reference is yourself. You know what you want, you know what your favorite moves are, and what style you prefer, ultimately. Never lose that, especially when you look at others. Over all your progress, maximize whatever it is that makes you YOU.
    Jeez I’m just excited! You look good man. Show us more of what you got soon!
    We’re all here to help too =)
