    Don't like the video? If you would be so kind as to
    FUCK OFF, it would be very much appreciated.
    You don't have to watch any of Dan's videos.

  • Interesting idea, would take a lot of skill and quick reactions. If I overthink the attacker could do something else instead too, so I better not get overconfident or cocky. Great point about making physical contact to train correctly for distance, impact, etc. Then when it’s on you just strike harder, versus only practicing “air punching “

  • One way is to increase distance. Your opponent will have to take a step to get to you. The moment your opponent lifts that front foot, you intercept.

    speed leverage and position yes like chess same technique i used in playing basketball i mastered the art of the steal my lateral movement is of the charts another great video sir👊💪👊

  • couldnt one possible approach be repositioning? if your fast enough, and take a step back, couldnt you move back in while they came in to match you, to add more surprise to a close-range engage?

  • Another good video. Thanks. If you see this comment then you probably saw the other one, I might add here I studied some Okinawan Crane and was taught a really good move in feinting and would extend the back hand with the fingers open into the eyes which would really aggravate an opponent, and you could almost get them every time with it because it is so fast and unexpected. Flip wing crane. I wish I could do this again but my back will not let me. I miss it so badly. Thanks again.

  • I have a similiar "trick". Big swing aimed at jaw if it hits game over for opponent. But if you anticipate where they gona block you can rotate hand around arm and back fist the head or upper cut.This very effective if they block too far away from their center. This is not same as in video as the guard is NOT dropped but similar in that I have drawn his guard wider to create an opening.

    Love attacking through drawing, a good one is to raise your hands and leave your head open for a straight shot, once they come in with that jab or even a heavy cross there is the possibility to feed the attackers fist into your own elbow, just parry it into your elbow, with practice it is quite easy. Although the only thing with ABD is I am a strong believer that "action beats reaction" but still hey ho great vid

    Great Job with your videos. I also like the fact that you just don't demonstrate it yourself. Having students demonstrate it also gives perspective for people trying to learn also. What they can expect from day one…. to years later if they practice with intent. Not blindly repeating the motion over and over again. Here is also a suggestion I make on ABD. When using ABD, consider the time that you leave your hand down or Leg out there. I like to provide a small window of opportunity. They have to take that opportunity or it closes. Now I am also in control of when their attack is going to come if they see the opening. I am sure you already know this…. Just didn't hear it in your video. Keep up the good work.

    I always remember watching a nature show n which a lion was attacked by a buffalo. The lion dropped to its belly and as the buffalo lowered its head & horns n anticipation of goring the lion, the lion splayed its claws at the same time reaching out with both front legs & grabbed the buffalo's head
    BEFORE its horns came into contact with the lion. The lion then rolled with the buffalo's momentum as it pulled n the buffalo & closed its jaws around the buffalo's neck. It was a thing of beauty. It reminded me of hearing the ancient Xaolin practitioners watching animals and developing styles from their observations of those animals.

  • i have sparred in judo boxing and muay thai at a high enough level and attack by drawing is something i have used many many times…..great strategy

  • Simple and Easy says:

    siiirrr ….u. r the first one…who has made proper jkd tutorials..plzz keep up the good work….lots of love and respect from india

  • God I LOVE intercepting attacks. I applied the centerline theory and intercepting into my main martial art, escrima (arnis/kali) whenever i spar with my classmates.

    Just recently my sparring partner tried to thrust me with his knife and since he was taller than me I managed to hit his hand first with my knife.

    This caught him off guard that I managed to attack his chest.

    Be willing to suffer in order to make those deserving of suffering suffer more! Love it!!! That is one of my favorite mindsets. If you have practiced enough, no suffering needed by you. The fact you are willing to take that chance shows faith in yourself. I like that Mr. Lok

    As always the videos are amazing as well as instructional..when im training as far as (abd)..i also like to move my lead alil.wether it's up or down,I've found the split second ur opponents eyes are distracted their minds delay..i prefer to use kicks out of this method for the fact one my lead hand moves,their eyes do which gives me the oppertunity to kick with as much force as needed..if I move my lead hand almost down I've found that most like to lean their head in or start winding up which gives me the opening to strike with my hands..just something some might want to incooperate in their training..i also sometimes like to portray a almost lazy stance or deep breathe to put ur opponent in the mindset that ur un confident or unconcentrated…remember ur opponent thinks ur weaker for the most part..which is a mistake in any martial arts but in the streets ppl think different..
