All of these videos are packed with information. I don't show twenty repetitions of the same technique so I can extend the tape series. I don't include filler material or "teases," but give an in-depth look at these subjects.

Kali/Jun Fan/Jeet Kune Do Sectoring - DVD
There are many systems that use elements of what we are calling "sectoring," also known in JKD as "time-hits," (simultaneous counter-strikes). For the first time, sectoring is being presented here as autonomous body of knowledge beyond mere "entry" moves. This includes the inter-relationships of possible time-hits and how those choices are made moment to moment. Sectors are also shown as a back-up for other tactics such as trapping and joint locking. These skills cross the boundaries of JKD and Kali.
Approximately 55 minutes. $39.95

Modified Chi Sao - DVD
The thrust of this DVD is less about how to play the game of chi sao (sticky hands) with another chi sao adept, and more about how it fits into useful fighting skill in the naturally sloppy world of combative instincts. This DVD includes; individual hand roles/applications; outside/inside defensive, outside/inside offensive, luk sao, drills from the roll, active/passive changes, non-standard additions, five ways of attack within chi sao, gua chuie cycle, single hand patterns, entry (clean and messy), loose boxing to chi sao and back, adding kicks.
Approximately 55 minutes. $24.95

Approximately 56 minutes. $24.95

Siko-Ordibas/Tapi Tapi Drills - DVD
This DVD works through the Siko Ordibas (elbow and backhand) drill, and the Tap and Wipe drill. I also show how these drills are countered at each step, how they offset and blend with each other, and how these drills can move back and forth between who is feeding, and how to mix these drills with other sensitivity drills such as chi sao, lubud, elbow control and boxing drills.
Approximately 55 min. $24.95
