Anderson Silva shines on kung-fu dummy

Friday, November 30, 2012

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.
