Thanks for sharing your practice!

What would you say you're doing, in the details there? Are those strikes?

sure

this is quite a compact practice
I've missed some work out; skipped a stage
just finishing preparing that clip which I'll post later
some of the techniques become clearer.

that is where I use a heavy bag and combine shadow boxing and using the bag together.
I just made this recently to round it off: form>shadowboxing>bagwork>smallframe shadowboxing.

what I didn't quite anticipate with (this) shadowboxing is how it's tricky to dial back your practice to show it being built up.
western boxing would be a lot more straightforward for example. this is where western and (internal) chinese boxing diverge.
I include 'internal' because that style of movement is trained via the 'connected force' model - for want of some terminology to describe it..

so basically that clip is footage from when I made and posted 'my form' clip a little while ago.
my idea was to show me going from form to shadowboxing. Though this is, on reflection quite a specialist kind of shadowboxing.
In the sense it has its own style, which is why I tagged 'small frame' on it. It's has similarities with the Yiquan dance.
It's almost like a halfway to realistic shadowboxing. Not that I think its necessarily 'unrealistic' it's just that you understand sizes and shapes are adjustable to the context. and this is purposefully kept compact and connected. Connected in the sense of holding and moving force purposefully; as in 'shi li'.

so yes, there are basically ward offs, pulls, pushes, deflections, parries and palms/ punches. something like that. In terms of 'moving and using forces' the basis is peng, lu, ji, an.
