Jeet Kune Do Martial Arts Techniques : Uppercut Jeet Kune Do Move

On behalf of Expert Village I’m Sifu Dwight
Woods of Unified Martial Art Academy in Miami, Florida and today we are going to be talking
about beginners jeet kune do. So now we are on into what we would call punches number
4 which is the uppercut. So again mechanics when we set it up, I want to make sure when
you use first the power from the ground I can take that force up through the body and
then let it express itself into the arm. So one more time in slow motion I make sure that
I get as much rotation of the hip into the arm as oppose to the just dropping the hand
and hitting like this. So if we go in real time sos of course by extension if I can hit with a
punch then I can change the tool and then I can change hitting in what we call up interval.
And one more time so you would see the first technique, elbow technique, but identical
body mechanics.

  1. JKD doesn't have a structure you idiot. JKD is all about liberating yourself from structures and confinements and using whatever technique is best suited for the situation to take down your opponent. Be it be your hands, legs, teeth or nails. Its about survival. Its about finishing your opponent before he finishes you. There is no DOs and DON'Ts when you fight for your life.

  2. I get what you're saying but this is elbow is meant for close in fighting and not as an opening or anything like that. That would look ridiculous. lol
    But I get what you're saying.
    What I was referring to was in one of Ted's JKD videos him and Bustillo demonstrate the use of the elbow in JKD.

  3. omg……….I LOVE YOURE COMMENT!!!!! HOLY SHIT THAT MADE MY DAY!!!! SCREW THAT THAT'S MY LIFE INSPIRATION NOW! ill never forget that comment seriously man thx. 4 real. =]

  4. It's so the user's heart rate doesn't spike whenever they throw a punch. It's like releasing the pressure in your muscles and letting it flow out of your mouth or nose

  5. its to remind him to take a sharp breath everytime he strikes. it helps with the flow of breathing, and makes for a strong blow.

  6. I am interested in debating proper technique, not indulging loudmouth nobodies who lack even a premise of a logical point against my assertions.

  7. LOL , when he hits the pad, the transcribed subtitles are "TIME SOS"
    Anyway, great video!, I'm watching all of them, since they're very interesting
