Anderson Silva shines on kung-fu dummy

source: andregalvao

While Anderson Silva has a black belt in BJJ, and extraordinary Muay Thai, he is also known for having a broad background in various martial arts, including, apparently, kung fu.

BBJ great Andre Galvão and his student Liera Jr recently journeyed to LA to visit Silva. During the trip, The Spider demonstrated his skills on the Mook Jong.

The Mook Jong. or Kung Fu dummy, is used in Chinese martial arts training. Use of the device is most prevalent in Wing Chun and other Southern Chinese kung fu. In addition, its use has been adopted by some Jeet Kune Do practitioners.

What gets me is the title to the video. Anderson seems to know enough about how it looks like to train on a wooden dummy, but that's it. It was very sloppy. He was more just slapping the arms. There are plenty of people that can utilize a wooden dummy. Anderson is far from that.

Well no shit a strictly TMA-trained guy could do this better, I have a friend who does wing-chun and he could do a better job, but that's not the point. AS is just messing around and has probably had a few ppl show him the before, still pretty badass that he can do this on the spot!He's a MT/MMA guy, not some kata practicing dojo man

The best Wing Chun teacher and fighter imo is Sifu Eddie Camden (Sifu Francis Fong's top student).
