I have been exploring Jeet Kune Do and Filipino Boxing techniques lately. Three terms to understand include:
I have had the privelege of training at Western Martial Arts Academy on 6580 Belleau Wood Lane Ste B in Sacramento,CA
Guntine: A Scissoring motion used to block whether it is outside,split or inside defense.
Pac Sao: From observation…pushing or slapping opponents arm out of the way just enough to continue a forward pressure attack.
Lap Sao: Pulling or sweeping opponents blocking arm out of the way just enough to continue forward pressure attacking.
Below is a link to a video illustrating pac sao and lap sao techniques from
Elite Academy of Martial Arts,GA
I really enjoy applying what I have been learning into toolbox for sparring. I have had a few moments of success where I was able to time a pac sao just right and as a result I connected with a cross. I have yet to apply a guntine, or lap sao into my sparring sessions but that is a work in progress. On a side note I do suggest working your split defenses into your sparring, you could catch alot of people off guard.
