Advice on Holding the Mitts

by John Chow of Tao of Tai Chi Chuan Institute for Health, Self Defence and Spiritual Development.


"You can only be a good eskrimador if you are a good feeder"


"Feed properly with care in order not to hurt yourself and your partner"


“Improve your skills and character by feeding your partners with loving care to help them improve.  In return,  their improved skills and character will benefit yourself”


“By executing the striking, punching, kicking, elbowing, kneeing, throwing, sweeping, locking  -  all techniques properly and with a benevolent state of mind,  not only you prevent injury to yourself and your partners,  but you also enable both to advance together”
