Today we started training with being shoved to the ground landing on our hands and knees and having to defend against a strike coming in. It didn’t matter what the strike was, kick, punch or knee what mattered was the vector of the strike coming in.
Knowing the path of the strike and position of the person we could move our balance to the supporting limbs that were out of the striking vector. By moving to a supported balance outside of the strike vector we could then move back into our partners weak points in their structure and balance.
Understanding this concept of moving our balance from a compromised vulnerable position to a support outside of the strike allows us to escape and then regain control. The ways in which you can do this are only limited by your creativity and physical limitations, as was demonstrated by Dennis. Dennis said he wouldn’t use some of these balancing positions in a real fight but you can see I am still affecting your balance, and of course they’re funny.
We look forward to training with you.
