His Chin Na trapping techniques are something to watch...and he has incredibly fast hands behind his distancing and timing skills, that usually end up with choking you out before you realize what's happening.
All welcome to this special workout. If you want to learn something extremely useful for sparring and street defense, you really want to be there.
