  Earth movements: the sand whirls exercise


After watching the first exercise of the water movements, we pass to a third one relating to the movements of the earth. The practice we are going to describe has the intent to make our soft movements unstoppable (beyond the execution speed). To start we need: - A vase / pail that can withstand a certain weight - To start it's good to a container of approximately 40x40x40cm - An elliptical / circular based container is more indicated - Enough sand or rice to fill 3/4 of the container The exercise: - We have to put the sand / rice in the container - We have to position the container in a stable manner in front of us (it must not move) - Let's assume a stable equilibrium position (ma bu is ideal) - The upper edge of the container has to be slightly below the height of our belly - With opened hands, let's slightly stiffen the fingers (elastic laying) - We have to soak the fingers of the right hand and begin to draw circles - We must use the whole body (to rotate only with the wrists is a waste of time) - The muscle chain must start from foot, shoulders must follow the rotation - The circles must be as precise and smooth as possible (we can follow the edge but without touching it) - We can divide the time of practice in 4 parts, left / right hand and clockwise / anticlockwise direction - The speed of execution may be slower or faster, the important thing is that it is constant, soft and uninterrupted (no scattered / jerky movements) Variants and evolutions: - The exercise can be performed with the foot, also involving the entire leg (the upper limit of the vase must be below the knee) - We can gradually immerse more and more our arms in the vessel (but only if we can maintain constant the quality and speed of the rotations) - After some time time we can take larger and larger vessels (up to 1x1x1m) - With increasing skill we can choose different movements and / or combined with both arms / legs (more on this later) Notes: - Especially the first few times we must avoid to strain our body too much - There is a similar exercise in water movements (we'll see it in future) - This practice develops a very high soft strength, we must be careful with our training partners - This workout is not so much recommended for novices, it tends to be proposed to those who have already reached a fairly advanced level of 6DKF training In the next article of this series we will see other exercises (fire movements).

  6DKF: what does it teaches?


Inspired by the Shaolin until Ninjutsu passing through the most effective aspects of the most important styles of martial arts (Jeet Kune Do, Wing Chun, Silat, Systema, etc.) 6 Dragons Kung Fu teaches: - Fight with bare hands, fighting to free mass (ground fighting, levers, projections, multiple opponents clash, pressure points, etc.) - Use of weapons, practical use of proper and improper weapons (throwing, cutting, etc.) - Invisibility, stealth techniques (stealth, prestidigitation hints, etc.) - Use of psychology, deception techniques (persuasion, seduction, lie detection, etc.) - Body and mental conditioning, inspired by the 72 Shaolin skills and by Ninjutsu (resistance conditioning, power, etc.) - High-level combat techniques, whose learning requires years of practice (muscle chain, "special" attacks, some acrobatics, etc.) - Personal growth, control of our mind (self-esteem, managing emotions, removing fears, etc.) - Connecting mind and body, advanced management of our body (meditation, Qi, breathing, development of the senses, etc.) - Self defense, practical application of fight techniques in real contexts (disarms, correct attitudes, stress management, etc.) - Tactics of struggle, advanced methodologies to prevail over rivals (strategy, bodily resource management, mobility, faints, etc.) - Individual training, design of personal sessions (to be adapted to the practitioner, and to be executed on a daily basis) - Specific forms, collections of fundamental movements / interactions (for body adaptation, muscle memory, etc.) - Sparring, controlled fighting (with different types and levels of intensity) - The use of "constant change" in training, tailored sessions, always "different" but studied to train every time the basic skills - The creation of a personal style, combining techniques and skills to create a resource fully bonded to the practitioner (mechanics of the body, personal attitudes, etc.) - General knowledge of martial arts, introducting to other martial arts (how to face them, their strengths / weaknesses, etc.) - The development of the basic martial skills, attitudes underlying the fight (power, speed, balance, endurance, reflexes, spatial intelligence, etc.) With this article we wanted to give a general (non-exhaustive) overview of what the 6 Dragons Kung Fu Style conveys to its practitioners.

  Small space 4 hours individual training session sample 1


An example of a daily individual session of 6DKF training performed in a small space (2x2m, 4 hours, without special / specific tools): - 10 minutes of body conditioning (hitting ourself with bare hands) - 10 minutes of abs (various) - 10 minutes of running (standing in place or going back and forward) - 10 minutes of belt free rotations / revolutions (let's play attention to the ambient) - 10 minutes of fabric cloth training (arms only) - 10 minutes of fabric cloth training (legs only) - 10 minutes of fabric cloth training (arms and legs) - 10 minutes of dynamic manipuation of a chair (rotations, leave and grab, etc.) - 10 minutes of push-ups (various) - 10 minutes of flying kicks (various, also with rotations but from a standing position) - 10 minutes of (Wing Chun like) punches sequences - 10 minutes of fast parries arm against arm (softness and sensibility conditioning) - 10 minutes of knife fast and free manipulation - 10 minutes of various kind of balance standing positions (grabbing and strongly compressing 2 bottles of water) - 30 minutes of poles training (against any object of the ambient, calibrating each time power in relation to the object involved) - 10 minutes of throwing and flying recovering of a pen / pencil - 1 hour of 6DKF's first form This is a good training for who does not have space or special training tools or for who simply is far from home (hotel, workplace, etc.). The level of this training is calibrated for every kind of 6DKF's practitioners (eventually some things can be a little increased / decreased in difficulty), it is not too dangerous and it does not require an excessive effort.

  The best way to study technique: 10 tips


In-depth study of martial arts can be compared to the painstaking work of an university researcher, we must: - Have the foundation for understanding and applying - Gather information and be able to find the right sources - Analyze and understand the theory - Apply the theory with the practice - Re-process the theory and the practice with our mind It is not so important if our sources of information are teachers, books, video tutorials, articles (etc.), it is fundamental to understand that it's never enough a single vision to be able to say that we have acquired a new knowledge (technique, strategy, etc.). We must give meaning, body and durability to what we analyze, in a word we need Method. Let's imagine we want to learn a new lever technique, here are 10 useful questions about the quality of our study: - Is our body ready / suited to perform this technique in a safe and effective manner? - Our martial cultural background is sufficient or we have some gaps? - The technique is appropriate for us, for our body and our style of fighting? - Have we seen enough times the technique? If we close our eyes can we remember every movement / detail? - Have we stored in our mind / body the technical key points? - Have we tried the execution of the technique enough times? - Is the quality of our performance stable or imperfect? - Have we informed about and / or tested any countermoves? - Are we able to perform the technique with an uncooperative partner? - After one month can we apply the technique instantly and instinctively? If we responded consistently to each of these questions it means that we have followed the right path and we acquired the technique in a stable, profitable and lasting way. In all other cases probably we have only wasted our time, it makes no sense to limit ourselves to: - Go to internships without reviewing what we have learned - Read books once without really studying what they contain - Watching video once without attention to detail, without trying - ... Let's be clear: a theoretical knowledge of a large number of techniques is a very good thing but if we are speaking of our own, those that actually we would use in case of real need, they must be trained, absorbed, made our at 100%.

  Anteprima Moda Fall Winter 2017 2018 Gucci Infrante le regole Sciolte le fantasie


E' successo. Si sono infrante le regole. Erano fenomeni già nell'aria. Poi, d'un tratto sono esplosi, con inaspettata ratifica nelle vendite mondiali. Inaspettata da parte di molti. Non dallo staff di Gucci che ha realizzato l'operazione. Tutto è avvenuto dal momento dell'ingresso, già nel 2015, dello stilista Alessandro Michele nella maison Gucci, il quale è oggi il direttore creativo del brand.  Il mood è diventato eclettico al massimo grado, centrato assolutamente su creazioni estrose ed eccentriche. Le collezioni Gucci colpiscono, in questo momento, per l'estro irrefrenabile e per lo stile mix and match. Uno stile che raccoglie su di sé, nello stesso istante, ispirazioni che nascono da mondi disparati: Pop, Punk, Barocco, Vida Loca, Romanticismo, Anni'70, Rock. Tutto e tutto insieme. Viene spontaneo domandarsi da dove trova origine questo fenomeno. I motivi ci sono. La nostra epoca è andata allargando in tutte le direzioni il cerchio delle libertà personali. La moda corre sull'onda di un pensiero che potrebbe essere questo: "Vivi come se avessero aperto i cancelli. " Ed ecco, la libertà, portata all'estremo, viene espressa dal costume. La moda apre una pagina importante. E tutto fa parte di una esperienza da vagliare e sperimentare. Così si vedrà sfilare, da Gucci, un trench rosso fioratissimo. Fiori, fiori, tanti fiori, spesso ricamati. E poi, Stampe, stampe, stampe. Fantasie con pesci e meduse. Effetti multicolor, con paillettes, volants e arricciature. Le gonne, lunghe, saranno patchwork, a motivi e strati differenti. Il pantalone sarà a tre quarti e si chiamerà culotte, perché rappresenterà una particolare gonna, sempre a pantalone, appunto. Gucci ci fa uscire da innumerevoli anni di uso di solo colore, spesso monocolore grigio o bicolore minimalista. Si apre la porta all'ingresso di stampe e fantasie nel nostro guardaroba, nei nostri outfit. Sfrenatamente, come non era mai stato.

  Water movements: the secrets paths exercise


After watching the first exercise to control the soft power (belonging to air movements category), we pass to a second one related instead to the water movements group. The practice we are going to describe does not involve incredible difficulties but requires access to a body of water (a lake, a river, the sea, a swimming pool, a large tub, etc.): - Deep at least up to the height of our chest - Free from excessive disturbing / risking elements (strong waves, rocks, poisons, etc.) - Broad and along at least 2x2m - Under the supervision of someone who can help us in case of need Identified the ideal workout place we pass to the explanation of the exercise: - Let's go in the water (in safety, away from danger and only after digestion) - Let's remain standing but slightly flexing our knees (the head remains outside the water) - We have to find a stable equilibrium position (eg. ma bu) and to close our eyes - Let's relax the whole body, but let us not be carried by the eventual waves - Let's perform the Dragon Motion (which we already have spoken) - Initially we do not involve the whole body but only the top half - We must choose the motions on which we want to focus (eg. the cursive lower case "e" letter) - Lets' always repeat the same series of movements at constant speed - The goal is to seek the trajectory and the position of the body elements which identifies less water resistance - At constant boost we have to find the best path and aerodynamic; in the air only advanced practitioners can feel the difference, in water all it is more clear - Let's try sometimes to release big power after a rotation Variants: - The exercise can be performed also with legs (involving the entire body) - In the presence of adequate rescue personnel, the exercise can also be performed with the body nearly / completely immersed (water must not be too high, at the most at our height, this practice is for advanced practitioners); - Also in conditions of maximum safety and with due preparation, the exercise can also be performed training the apnea (advanced) - When the quality of our movements is very stable we can start to wear small weights (only on the wrists and ankles, for experts only) Notes: - Let's avoid using heavy weights in water (even for experts) - When we get back to practice the Dragon Motion out of water we must play attention to do not reach for error the limits of our joints (the risk of damaging elbows, etc. is not remote) - Let us not stop at the first apparent results, the research of mobility is long and full of red herrings; let us not be misled by our muscle memory out of the water - The fact that a movement we seem faster than another may be due simply to the fact that we have repeated it many times and not to the fact that it is adhering to the best path / aerodynamic (this is why we must be very relaxed) Even if the exercise requires some physical effort, this practice will teach us our "secrets paths" making us able manage new speed and power (potentially without a specific training). In the next article of this series we will see other exercises (earth movements).


 

  The characteristics of a true master

  The characteristics of a true master


Martial arts touch on extremely serious aspects of life of a human being (life, death, law, temperament, injuries, etc.), we can not under any circumstances give our trust to the wrong person. A good teacher must not only master what his style but also maintain the right mental disposition, with respect to: content, students and all the things that gravitated around them; in this regard we we want to share some ideas (they are not the only ones) of what to look for in a master worthy of this name. How he lives martial arts: - He do not live in (his) past and he is able to keep abreast, both inside and outside of his style - If the body and age allow him, he exercises himself regularly - He always tries to improve and never feels arrived - He sees in his students the continuity of style and not his audience - He has no preconceptions, he has an open mind to the comparison with other styles How he relates with his students: - Do not give anything for granted, he gives importance both to the overview both to the detail - He listens to the demands and needs of his students with availability - He is honest and does not illudes his students (endangering their safety) - He encourage students to become better day by day, to practice more and better - He encourage students to do their experiences outside of his circle - He encourage his students to experience firsthand the goodness of what it claims - He does not limits the ability growth of his students to below himself - He does not hide to his students risks in applying what he teaches - He never belittles nor even offends his students - He is able to give trust and respect in a real way How he teaches: - He focuses to make his students better than him (thus giving continuity to the style) - He is not selfish, it does not pretend secrecy and promotes the spread of what he teaches - He teaches what he know and what he has experimented in with the practice - When he teach theory that he has not mastered / tested, he emphasizes it - He teach with his example, a straight way, consistent and honest - He do not impoverish the style he teaches leaving out the most difficult parts - He is constantly careful not to cause physical or moral harm to his students - He gives his best but he does not transform the lesson in a personal exhibition - He know how to convey what it teaches from many angles and points of view - He is generous, he teaches with passion, without looking at the clock or the money His way of being: - He do not spend his time talking bad about all the other masters (especially his own) - He reject violence, revenge and anger, rather it embraces dialogue, patience and peace - He sacrifices himself in order to be available to anyone who asks for help - He has no pretensions to omniscience and above all is he is not autoreferential - He is not sectarian nor strutting but humble and willing to discuss - He never pretends to be sure about what he can not know or prove - He does not has money or praises as primary goal - He do not behave so petty (violence, lies, mockery, resentments, etc.) - He recognize his limits / faults with humility and without frustration This is the kind of master that is good to follow. We can benefit greatly from the others, learn a lot of things but always keeping the right distance (moral and temporal).

  Hitting effectively: distances and targets


Until our spatial intelligence will not develop in an appropriate manner, the way we hit opponents it will always be limited to a more or less wide error range. Schematically (in terms of both attack and defense) we can imagine a sphere that gravitate around our goal (a punch that comes, the chin of the attacker, etc.); this portion of space represents the area that, once the target is chosen, we are certainly able to achieve, inside of it, exist different regions: - Some identify a perfect impact - Some identify a useful impact - Some identify an useless impact - Some others identify a damaging impact If during training we can try, make mistakes and thus to improve, in a real fight we can not accept anything less than a useful impact. To overcome this problem, however we can, right from start, follow a few simple tips: - When we hit we always have to strive force more toward the center of gravity of the opponent's body rather than to the outside (the void); this easy ploy will guarantee us a surplus of effective action that varies between 25% and 50% - When we choose a target we have to imagine to hit well beyond its real location, thereby releasing more power and, at worst, reaching it however - If we have the opportunity (and the impact will not disadvantage us) we can opt for meeting strokes (eg. a front kick against a running aggressor); we do not risk to get to the target with little force and the opponent will hardly be able to dodge - We have to learn to choose as target the point where we know our opponent will be after a few milliseconds and not the one where he is now; so we will have time / space to load more powerful shots and who we face will be probably taken by surprise - We have to use as much as possible soft movements of attack / defense that stiffen and accelerate explosively only near to the target, this will ensure us unpredictability and prevents damage due to possible collateral impacts (eg. the corner of a wall) - We have to eliminate the idea of ​​giving more contemporary shots (eg. simultaneous right and left punch), this is a viable way only for experts (with a perfect coordination, an impeccable technique and a spatial intelligence able to evaluate millimetrically the distances) - We have to rely on shots in sequence (both in attack and defense), if the first impact should not be successful we must have already a second, a third (and so on) prompt action to correct previous errors (eg. fist, wrist, elbow, palm of the other hand, etc.) - We have to avoid the targets too risky, there are many points to be intercepted, we omit the most dangerous, uncertain and without subsequent outlets; the human body has endless areas that are worth achieving (to slow, frightening, void, etc.) - The most common targets are generally the most difficult to achieve but it is not said that to gain them we must hit them first; in a clever sequence, the first step may seem harmless but it can actually only be a way to make inroads in the opponent's defensive apparatus - The best target is what gives us (dynamically) the adversary mistake, the worst the one we choose; let's distrust of the mistakes made in moments with no interaction, are typically deceptions Notes: - Some of these tips are simple others less but they remain largely valid even after acquiring a high level of spatial intelligence - It is important to note that these ideas are valid both for the unarmed combat, both as regards the use of improper / proper weapons (more on this later) - As our spatial intelligence become more precise / responsive more we will be closer to the assimilation of the most advanced techniques (individual pressure points, in sequence, etc.) In the past we have already alluded to useful exercises to improve spatial intelligence, later we will expose many more.
