Sifu Hung Le is extremely knowledgeable, skilled, humble, and tolerant.

Has anybody else watched this?

There are several times when Stephen strikes Sifu Hung very hard and Yanks on him very abruptly. It seemed to me to come out of nowhere with no warning and was harder than necessary to communicate the point. He then also steps back and composed himself subtly as if he's dealing with a rush of adrenaline.

Watching some of his other videos I also think he's a bit rough when demonstrating with his non resistant students.



Am I just being a pansy or does anybody else see what I'm talking about with this guy?

Yes you are being a bit floral
If a tree falls in the forest and there is no camera does it really fall
I'm sure the other guy is allowing it to be repeated because it is being filmed
The thing that puzzles me how do you develop such bad posture as the guys in the first three clips
Don't put power into the form let it naturally arise from the form

No. I didn't see any of that. Do you have a timestamp?

That video he's demonstrating breaking structure of spine with wing chun. Didn't notice anything too rough.

Like 3:19 in the first is somewhat in context, but still seems a little rude to me.
Okay so like around 8:50 in the second video, where he asks Sifu to touch his shoulder and then he punches Sifu in the shoulder somewhat suddenly out of nowhere.
Around 5:10 in the third, to me when he's yanking on his neck roughly is likewise, to me, unnecessary and a bit unexpected.
