So if I want to focus on learning more about Martial Art, then I would focus on items that is similar through all styles.
Here is some of the ways to do it:
Block with force against force.
Lead the opponents force in other direction
Counter the opponent before the opponent reach you.
Move your body against the attacker.
Move your body away from the attacker
This can be a lot of different versions of blocks, and you have a lot of levels in this.
«Lead the force in way from your self, or stop it before it reach you.»
There is no right or wrong at all. It’s depending on your background and because you will always try to keep the opponent on the distance you are trained on.
Learn the art you are training, not only the advantage also the weakness. Try to fill the weakness with knowledge from other art, then you will have a good package at the bottom of defense system.]]>
1: The gaps you se on your opponent.
2: The gaps that you have on yourself.
So how to get control over it. It’s not easy or it can be easy. This is depending on your knowlegde.
Lets look at you as a fighter first, and it’s not depending of the art. Every time you are hitting or kicking you are creating openings. Even if it’s short time for every technique it’s still there. This is the reason for the instructor are telling you to get your fot down at the ground again after kicking. This is the same when you are hitting, you don’t stay out with your arm it’s getting back in guard position again. Do not forget that if your are hitting the opponent the opponent can hit back at you. This is the reason for you to use the footwork that you hopefully have learned. If you are a counter fighter you will always look at the gaps and hit the openings when the risk is low.
The other way to do it is to create false gaps so the opponent will try to hit in the gaps. When you have trained for false openings you have trained for counters. It’s always a chance to get it wrong but if you are good with your counters. Then you will have advantages in the fights.
Know we have talked about looking for openings and create openings, but is still a part left closing gaps.
It’s important to learn how to close your gaps and learn different ways to handle your guard. There is weakness in every guard, but you have to learn them so you can handle the attacks.
It’s not only the guard, it’s the footwork, centerline theory and so on. This is art to get in your mind to be a better fighter:)
I do not want to live through my kids, I want to live with them. They have there own life, but to be a part of their life is important. There is no reason for me to think that they should do as me, but for me training have been a great experience. I can see how happy they are after training, and hopefully they will continue when they are grown up :)!
Some will maybe say that you could choose an easy system, but you still have to train the same amount to get better that the other people.
It’s you that decide the limits of the goals that you want to reach, there is no one else that can reach them for you.
There will always be questions, but most of the questions can be answered. You can either find them yourself, or you can look for the answer at other places.
By that I mean find masters that you know have the knowledge about the issue, and they will help you out. If they don’t want to help you out, then they are not the masters for you. My opinion is that a black belt is not really a master if they are not trying to teach or understand what they have learned. Good knowledge comes by teaching, and there is nothing called a bad art just bad masters.
Most of the styles have some weakness, but it’s the masters job to close as many of the weakness as possible. This is called developing the art even if you are training classic arts you will see some changes.
I like to teach, but I still like to learn so I still train arts that I don’t know so much about. Sometimes there are easier to have nothing in the knowledge box, and sometimes opposite. This is depending what I am learning of new stuff.]]>
I just have to change my training method and be open for more that just the Martial art training. So now I am finely back to 6 to 7 days a week, and in the beginning it was hard to find a way to manage my body with training.
So my key is to combine:
Martial art more than one art, because then I use the muscles different ways.
Running long and short intervals
Still it’s important to have fun:)]]>
