Blocking and Evasion
- Don’t over extend your self on a block, it’s probably one of the easiest mistakes to make. Over extending or ‘reaching to far’ in any direction could also be described as reaching out for an attack that would not have hit you in the first place
- There is no need to ‘tense up’ when blocking. One
should be relaxed, focusing one’s physical energy on the
part of the body used to perform the block.
Using Your Hands
Our hands are our most useful tools. We don’t always think
of them as weapons, which is certainly a good thing, however even
an empty hand can be one of the most versatile and powerful weapons
in any arsenal. One good rule when striking is to eliminate any
excess movement. Note that a fake, or diversionary motion is not
necessarily excess movement. Speed and relaxation go hand in hand.
One should focus energy through one’s target.
Kicking, while not always the best course of action to take
in combat, can produce some of the most devastating attacks in
all of martial arts. It may be hard to believe, but every kick
begins with the same general movement, a picking up of the leg
while keeping one’s knee straight in front of one’s
self in a neutral position, keeping the type of kick being produced
hidden from the opponent.
