Learn From Sanda Coach - History of Sanda 1: Why TCMA Can't Fight

In this first video, we look at the very beginning of a great interview. Our Sanda Coach talks about why Sanda had to be created. Let's use this as an opportunity to learn Chinese! We will learn Chinese from this interview.
More translations and lessons from this sanda 散打 coach interview to come.

Three Chinese expressions to learn based on this part of the interview:

从 (cóng: from)

从头到尾 (cóng tóu dào wěi: from beginning to end, literally: from head to tail)

So use this expression to tell someone to be thorough.

从头到尾给我说一下 (cóng tóu dào wěi gěi wǒ shuō yí xià: Start from the beginning and tell me everything)

不能 (bù néng: cannot)

Use this expression and practice with it. What else can you not do?

For example, 不能说的秘密 (bù néng shuō de mì mi: a secret I cannot talk about)

不能出门 (bù néng chū mén: cannot go outside)

搞 (gǎo: do)

搞什么?(What are you doing?)
