In this video, Dan Lok demonstrates one of Bruce Lee JKD’s Trapping Techniques called the Lap Sao. In Jeet Kune Do, the Lap Sao is used to pull one arm of your opponent and making him off balance whilst simultaneously striking him with your other hand.

Trapping is not exclusive to JKD, but it certainly isn’t very common in most martial arts.

In case you aren’t familiar with what I’m talking about, trapping is the art of using your arms to nullify one of your opponent’s limbs so that he can’t use it to hit or to block. This allows you to then strike into that open line (that’s a general definition). It’s also called Hand Immobilization Attack (although you can also immobilize other parts of the body, too, using the same concept).

In short, trapping basically means “grabbing to hit”.

One of Dan Lok’s passions in life is martial arts. Like many young kids, after watching a Bruce Lee movie, it changed his life forever. At 17 years old, Dan started training in martial arts seriously because he was being bullied in school. It wasn’t long for Dan to learn the techniques he needed, and gain the confidence necessary to defend himself.

Dan has studied with legendary martial artist such as Bruce Lee’s original student Ted Wong ( and Joe Lewis “The Worlds Greatest Fighter” ( making him a second generation student of Bruce Lee – in Bruce Lee’s authentic art of Jeet Kune Do (JKD). He’s also a third generation student of Ip Man (Wing Chun Kung Fu).

Dan has also trained with other great instructors like Sifu Adam Chan ( Canadian lightweight boxing champion Tony “Fire Kid” Pep ( and Octavio Quintero (

For Dan, martial arts training permeates every area of life. It’s not a hobby, it’s a way of life, and it influences how he does business.

Martial arts gave him the confidence, focus, and patience to push through these obstacles and to keep fighting when he felt like giving up.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Dan is NOT a full-time martial artist and he doesn’t even claim to be that good of a fighter.

He’s simply a successful businessman who enjoys the art and philosophy of Bruce Lee, just like you.

He doesn’t have any online martial art videos, seminars or expensive “private training” to sell you. Quite frankly, he doesn’t need the money.

He simply wants to share his passion for the art of JKD (his own version of Jeet Kune Do) through his YouTube channel.
