For those of you who know the form, watch the last vertical punch that I do in the video. Pay attention to my rear foot. See how it slides back as I punch? Yeah. That’s a mistake. It’s a mistake because my foot moving backwards means there isn’t as much power going forward – into the punch.
The fun part was that a student saw that mistake, not me.
We all make mistakes. Constantly. In sparring, in forms, in life. Mistakes are part of the equation. Noticing them, not beating yourself up about them, taking ownership of them and trying to correct them one at a time is what we do.
