Mandy and Mae Yuen had been training in the Chi Liung Center for at least 6 to 7 years now. Both are training hard as they are preparing themselves to go for their 2nd Dan test this coming April. Both have made remarkable improvement in terms of power and basic executions, but they are not about to ease up in their training schedule. They know what grueling test lies before them, and they want to get themselves in the best shape possible to face the challenges ahead.
One of the challenges they have to face is to spar with two partners instead of the usual one. Board breaking is the next. They have no qualms in breaking the boards with any techniques at all, but thinking about the sparring part with 2 partners can make them quite jittery at times because it would be a completely different experience all together.
The challenge does not stop here. In fact, before the test, they have to do a physical which include a 2.4 km run, pushups, sit-ups, leg-raises, hyper-extension and squat jumps. Of course, all these will be done a day or two earlier.
Another member worth mentioning is Daniel Chee. Ever since, he joins the center training a year or two ago, my wife and I have noticed a significant improvement in his kicks. Syabas, Daniel, keep it up!
See here, how they train together with other fellow members every Friday, from 8.00 pm to 9.30 pm.
