If you train in a combative martial art such as boxing or kickboxing you will be very familiar with the concept of shadow boxing. What it allows you to do is work on your speed, timing, fluidity and technique when you do not have a partner available to train with.

But if someone were to tell you that everything you thought you knew about shadow boxing was completely wrong.

In the following Master Ken Super Secret Street Fighting tip, the master of Ameri-Do-Te goes through the history of shadow boxing and its origins in ancient Egyptian.

Throughout the lesson, you’ll learn how to stay out of the range of your opponent while utilizing his shadow to administer swift counter attacks.

Check out the clip below.

Please note that Master Ken is a highly trained professional in the art of Ameri-Do-Te so please do not try any of his moves at home.

Learn the most dangerous martial art in the world: AMERI-DO-TE!
Ever studied Kung Fu? Taekwondo? Krav Maga? They’re all BULLSH*T. Only Ameri-Do-Te will give you the skill to survive a real life street encounter. Don’t waste time with cardio kickboxing or old fashioned karate. Forget using traditional weapons. In Ameri-Do-Te…YOU are the weapon. (To be clear: We do also have weapons training. But once you become a weapon you are even more dangerous. Because you’re a weapon holding a weapon. Imagine if you saw a knife holding a gun. Would you try to rob it? Of course not. And not because knives don’t have pockets to carry money. But because as a criminal in that situation you are twice as likely to be injured or killed. Understand? No? Then you need Ameri-Do-Te!) [Source: Enter the Dojo Show]
