We will retool and examine how making our reflexive movements work for us; using them as tools to unbalance and gain time on our opponents.
Sometimes simple changes can make a world of difference. Making a step deeper or wider can effect wether we simply defend an attack or use that defense to position ourselves for a rebuttal. The subconscious actions that we take in an engagement are often where we have given up time or missed an opportunity to strike. We will firstly use hangen to explain the underlining concepts. From there we will move on to other techniques as the class time allows. In the end, it is hoped that the idea is planted and you, the practitioner, can become self aware and make even more progress once you leave.
