Ted Wong's strong and fast punch combination

Greetings. I attended several seminars by Sifu Ted Wong (may he rest in peace) here in Puerto Rico, hosted by his student Sifu Albert Grajales. In one seminar, he mentioned his progression into a fast and strong punch. It was like a cross between the straight fist (chun choy) and the horizontal fist (ping choy); it looked like a diagonal fist. He mentioned it in the seminar by asking questions: "What is the fastest punch? the straight (demonstrating the chun choy). What is the strongest punch? the horizontal (demonstrating the ping choy). So the strongest and fastest punch is in between (demonstrating a diagonal fist)." I adapted this for a long time, and it has worked for me. I have never seen this anywhere else, even in the Jeet Kune Do community. Also, the books by Teri Tom never showed this at all. I would like your thoughts about this comment.

Also, I will share another story with Sifu Ted Wong. I told him, during one of his seminars, that I had seen a photo of Bruce Lee teaching Sharon Tate, who was later murdered by members of the Manson family. So I asked Ted Wong how did Bruce Lee react to her murder. He said: "Nothing. He didn't say nothing. Bruce Lee always said to control your emotions. The only time I saw Bruce Lee cry was when James Lee died... because he was like a father to him."

I will always cherish my experiences with Ted Wong, even though I was not a student and don't consider myself a Jeet Kune Do practitioner per se. He was very courteous and without an ego. He truly wanted people to learn and do things properly.

later,

j.c.

Sorry, and no disrespect to the late Ted Wong, but this is simply NOT TRUE! Hayward Nishioka, the famous judo champion, was close friends with Bruce Lee. Back when Bruce Lee was still alive, Hayward conducted a scientific test to determine which punch had the most power, the JKD vertical fist or the horizontal fist punch. The JKD vertical fist punch was easily the most powerful! This tells us that the vertical fist is the fastest AND the most powerful! Diagonal fist is "OK", and I do know some JKD practitioners that use it, but I still prefer the vertical fist!

Ok. I didn't realize that Hayward Nishioka had done a scientific test on this. I'm gonna try and use the vertical fist more often. Thanks for your reply.

Suppuration of the forearm causes a crossing of the radius and the ulna. A good example of this can be seen on this video at 3:22
